The Cobra Unit on a new Shinkawa art

The Japanese Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes Limited Edition includes a Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker novelization with illustrations by Yoji Shinkawa. Here is another artwork created for the book, showing the Boss’ Cobra Unit.

On the drawing you can see, from left to right: the Pain, the End, the Fury, the Joy, the Fear and the Sorrow.

Unfortunately this book seems to be for Japan only.

    Nawwwice

    for some reason i think i’ve seen this scene before(probably one of the flashbacks in MGS3)

    at least we finally get to see a more detailed art of The Sorrow ^^

  • BigBossWantsYou

    Could this be hinting at
    A) The Boss’ Cobra Unit playing a part in MGSV
    B) A game starring The Boss and her Cobra Unit

    • Nyxus

      Nah, I don’t think so. But I hope the Boss game happens some day.

      • BigBossWantsYou

        Yeah, then a game with Gray Fox, I’m not a HUGE fan of him, I just wanna see his character a little more developed like he was in Metal Gear 2: Solid Snake. Then, a multi-player sequel to Metal Gear Rising with Raiden as Player 1 and Blade Wolf as Player 2. Lastly, the original Metal Gear Solid: Rising. They don’t have to be made by Kojima though.

        • Nyxus

          I’d really like to see a remake of the first two games, about Solid Snake infiltrating Outer Heaven, and they could also develop Gray Fox and his friendship with Snake in that game, and later his loyalty towards Big Boss.

          • William of Orange

            Yeah, It would be interesting if they implement a morality meter or something like that in the remake of mg. The more soldiers you kill, the more agressive,scared or absent minded the OH soldiers get.

          • BigBossWantsYou

            Kojima doesn’t want those remakes done though. He feels they were made only for that time. It’d be nice though.

          • Nyxus

            Yes, that’s what he says right now. But he also said several times the MGS he was working on would be his last. 😛

  • César H. Sandoval

    I’m still hoping someday Kojima makes that MGS Game about the Cobra unit and the Boss during WW2.

    • Solid Jon

      Playing as the Boss sounds too sick! It’d be pretty cool if each Cobra had their own missions we could play them on too.

      • César H. Sandoval

        Yeah, I remember how much Kojima Liked GTAV, I’d love if the game could let you jump to the other Cobras in real time gameplay and control more than one character for mission.

        • Solid Jon

          That sounds fucking crazy! That would be so hype!

  • Machine Gun Kid

    I wanna see next gen remakes of the first two metal gear games on the nes/nsx or whatever. Would be sweet to have them running on the fox engine. Also i was hopeing kojipro would remake portable ops for the ps3. That wouldv been sweet in hindsight anyway.

    • William of Orange

      Nice nickname!

      • Machine Gun Kid

        Hey, thank you

    • BigBossWantsYou

      Kojima doesn’t want those remakes done though. He feels they were made only for that time

      • Machine Gun Kid

        I can respect that but then why is kojima looking for a studio team to remake mgs1 on next gen useing the fox engine?

        • Nyxus

          He doesn’t want to remake the first two games (the 2D ones), but he wouldn’t be against a remake of MGS1 if another studio does it.

          • Machine Gun Kid

            ah! ok, alright. Thank you for clearing that up for me you guys.

  • Machine Gun Kid

    And if im not mistaken i think i read an article awhile back about kojima looking for a studio team to do a remake of metal gear solid

  • Cartmangus

    Wonder if we’ll ever see more of The Sorrow, he is a ghost so I mean he could appear at any time. From a character standpoint he was definitely my favorite of the Cobras (well not counting The Boss). Game could’ve used more of him, plus dat character theme song http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p5LhT85HAr4

    Remember that “Backstory” menu on GZ title screen? I really hope it contains a summary of MGS3 and PW with every new drawing of Shinkawa.

    Or better yet, we get a limited edition with that PW book, translated and all. But that’s unlikely to happen.

    The closer we get to the release of GZ, the less hope I have that there will be a limited edition in the US / Europe.
