Operation Virtuous Mission, commence.
Metal Gear launched on the MSX in Japan 31 years today- it’s a long and storied franchise, that, over the decades, has pioneered genres, storytelling styles, and made itself a legion of fans. And while its future may appear uncertain for now, its past is still glorious and worth celebrating.
To celebrate this milestone, Jordan Vogt-Roberts, the director of the upcoming Metal Gear Solid film, will do. He confirmed that he will share, alongside a team of “next gen artists”, new art of the Metal Gear franchise over the next 31 days. Important to note, however, is that this is not actually art from the movie- the tweet was shared via Vogt-Roberts’ personal account, and he clarified it’s just “fan art”.
Still, I am sure Metal Gear fans around the world will appreciate this loving tribute to Hideo Kojima’s series of seminal masterpieces. Metal Gear Solid V is available now on PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
❗️Follow and retweet this thread to celebrate the 31st anniversary of @HIDEO_KOJIMA_EN‘s METAL GEAR with 31 pieces of never before seen nano-machine-infused-artwork.
Tune in every day for new updates. Some surprises along the way…
