Now that Konami has released him from his purgatory at the coalface, Metal Gear Solid creator Hideo Kojima has dusted off his Twitter account in the wake of Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain’s release.

Kojima has even offered advice regarding how his new game – likely to be the last Metal Gear Solid game he creates – should be enjoyed:
