Hideo Kojima Shows Beautiful Illustrations from Metal Gear Solid V’s Special Edition Novelization

on January 20, 2014 11:26 PM

Metal Gear Solid‘s legendary creator Hideo Kojima has been in a sharing mood lately, and today he tweeted two illustrations from the novelization book that will be included in one of the Special Editions of Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes.

Together with the illustrations, Kojima-san also shared a few lines about them:

Here’s a sample of the Peace Walker‘s novelization book included in one of the special editions of Ground Zeroes. It’s lavishly illustrated by Shin-chan (Koji Shinkawa) in color. That way those that don’t like text-only novels will also enjoy reading it.

The luxurious illustrations will also appear in a spread in this way. It’ll be like Hayakawa SF from a long time ago (laughs).

Hayakawa SF is one of Japan’s oldest and most successful science fiction magazines, and apparently one of Kojima-san’s favorites.

You can check out both illustrations below.

RPGs (of any nationality) and MMORPGs are his daily bread, but he enjoys almost every other genre, prominently racing simulators, action and sandbox games. He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
