Hideo Kojima presented a 12 minute live gameplay demo of Metal Gear Solid 5 at Tokyo Game Show today.

The video, below, is lifted from the Ground Zeroes prologue portion of Metal Gear Solid 5, and features Snake (or is it Big Boss?) doing his thing under cover of night in the pouring rain.

We see the special operative sneak about a military base, taking out guards, driving a truck before eventually flying off in a helicopter. Be warned, Kojima and co do a lot of talking in Japanese over the game audio.

Ground Zeroes, built using the Fox Engine, is in development at Kojima Productions alongside the main Metal Gear Solid 5 game, The Phantom Pain. Officially it's due out on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, but it looks set for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One also.

Konami is yet to announce a release date.
