Konami trademarks 'Metal Gear Solid Existence'

A month after Metal Gear Solid 5 was unofficially announced.

A month after Metal Gear Solid 5 was unofficially announced, Konami has registered "Metal Gear Solid Existence" with the Japanese trademark database.

It's unclear when the name was registeredj, but it exists just the same, reports gaming blog Siliconera. Konami was not immediately available for comment when contacted by GamePro on Friday.

In August, outgoing Konami producer Ryan Payton let slip that Konami is working on Metal Gear Solid 5. "It'll be hard not being involved in MGS5," he said upon leaving the developer for greener pastures. "But I've got the utmost confidence that Hideo Kojima, Ken Imaizumi, and our amazing team will put together another blockbuster game. I'll be cheering from the sidelines."

Metal Gear creator Hideo Kojima is notorious for saying he's done with the series after every release, but it appears he's still on for the next game, tentatively entitled Existence.

I would recommend this device for families and small businesses who want one safe place to store all their important digital content and a way to easily share it with friends, family, business partners, or customers.

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
