Metal Gear Solid 4 Meets Assassin’s Creed

April Fool’s Day is always a big day in the gaming industry, with publications and game companies never ceasing to cook up fake game/product announcements to trick unsuspecting gamers into believing. This year, there’ve been a number of clever gags, but for me they’ve all been trumped by this phony trailer for a Metal Gear Solid 4-meets-Assassin’s Creed game from Hideo Kojima and Jade Raymond. This isn’t some short clip either, it’s five minutes of actual in-game action from the imaginary game (though obviously it’s all gameplay from MGS4, just with Snake in Altaïr’s assassin garb). Classic stuff, check it out.
