Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes European Box Art Released; Kaz Has Been Removed from The Cover

on December 10, 2013 1:56 PM

A few weeks ago we reported about an interview with Hideo Kojima in which he was considering to remove Kazuhira “Kaz” Miller from the western box art (he’s featured on the Japanese box art together with Snake) of Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes, because he’s featured prominently in Peace Walker, that wasn’t very successful in the west.

Unfortunately looks like the plan has been put into action, and today Konami Digital Entertainment Europe released the pack shots for the game: Kaz is indeed gone.

You can enjoy the PS3 and Xbox 360 version in the gallery below. Personally, I liked the version with Kaz a lot more, and I find the reason for removing him a little silly. What do you think?
