Japanese limited bonuses for MGSV: Ground Zeroes revealed: cassette tape stand and reversible Shinkawa cover

Kojima Productions has revealed the Japanese limited bonuses for Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes. Early buyers at Konami’s own store Konami Style will receive a special stand for positioning their smart phone (which can be used to display the game’s map). The stand resembles a cassette tape case.



Apparently, the cassette itself is actually a notepad, representing a cassette tape from the game (Snake has to retrieve it during one of the missions).


Not all smart phone models will fit in the stand.

Also, a limited amount of Shinkawa-designed reversible covers for the game is also available as an extra.


Then there is some bonus downloadable content to be used in The Phantom Pain, staff members for Mother Base to be precise. The Japanese store GEO will offer a mystery character as well (the same one perhaps?), while another store, Tsatuya, gives you an extra weapon.


Let’s hope Konami has plans to bring this to the west as well.

    That cover… why isn’t that the regular one?

    • Nyxus

      Cause we have to earn it. 😉

      • César H. Sandoval

        I’d pay full 60$ price just for that cover, honestly.

        • Asturias_Knytt

          You make me sick -__-

          • César H. Sandoval

            Luckily, the cover is on every American copy too, so I only have to pay $30 for it!

            But yeah, I love Shinkawa’s art that much, I was gonna go digital but I will pay the extra 10$ for the cover, I even bought the Pacific Rim poster made by Shinkawa, because I love the dude’s art… Continue to feel sick, then xD

          • Asturias_Knytt

            Oh no doubt…I feel very sick. I pre-ordered it yesterday.. 🙁 I don’t even have a PS4 yet. Got a new TV to prepare myself instead :S Shinkawa is awesome, yeah.

  • crimsonfox

    Once again I say, Damn Japan and all the cool exclusive stuff. I’m so jelly right now…

  • Cartmangus

    oh my god that reversible Shinkawa cover is so much better than what we’re getting.. I’m sad now ;_;

    • crimsonfox

      It can’t be that hard to just print that for all the covers can it? Please Cartmangus tell me it’s not that hard and that they’ll do it for us (~_~,)


      Aren’t we all!! Damn Konami for not bringing this over here. We always get stuck with standard release 🙁

  • BigBossWantsYou

    Nooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo?!?!?! Why can’t this be in Americaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa?!?!?! Why can’t i live in Japaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaan?!?!?! Whhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy?!?!?!

  • César H. Sandoval

    I need these in the west, the Extra soldier and the Shinkawa cover at least!

    I can live with no tape, but I do love retro stuff like that…

    • Asturias_Knytt

      The DLC will most likely come to the West. The tape, probably not. I’m gonna pre-order the tape…

  • Kaniebas

    That is so effin’ cool! Dammit, why can’t we get these in US?

  • PrinceHeir

    godly reversible cover!

    though it’s only a LE? i’m already importing the game, but it sucks it’s only at the Konami store 🙁

    • Nyxus

      From what I understand it comes with every copy bought at the Konami Store, but it’s a limited quantity. Not sure though because I can’t read Japanese.

      • PrinceHeir

        it looks like it’s also for the normal edition as well!


        the question is if it’s exclusive to the store or not, though i saw Metal Gear Rising LE on playasia so i doubt the cover will be exclusive to the Konami store.

        i can only read Hiragana and Katakana for now.

        the gun picture says Gemu Horiginaru

        “Game Original”

        and the character it says Mazabeesu Sutaafu

        “Mother Base Staff”

        i don’t have any Hiragana or Katakana characters installed on my PC yet, but i will soon once i get a program(problem is i need to memorize the place of the characters on the keyboard)

        i’ll be learning Kanji this semester. the site is filled with Kanji characters, so it’s really hard to decipher what the sentences mean.

        damn the Shinkawa art really looks nice as hell!

        • Jonny2x4

          It’s not “Game Original”, it’s “Geo Original Weapon”. Geo and Game Tsutaya are retail chains in Japan.

          • PrinceHeir

            oh yeah the last one was actually a Katakana “オ” which translates to “O”

            so it is “Geo” my mistake.

  • Machine Gun Kid

    Japanese limited bonuses for mgsv ground zeroes=Cool, The fact that we wont be getting this in the states=Not cool

  • Machine Gun Kid

    I want that reversible cover badly. Yoji Shinkawa’s mgs art is awsome. Rising art to, well any of his art work is awsome i guess is what im trying to say here.

  • Machine Gun Kid

    Does the u.s. copy of ground zeroes even come with anything? i ordered mine online. Do we get like ah pre order bonus or anything like that? or we just get the game and thats it along with the in game bonus content?

  • Shalashaska

    If the reversible cover doesn’t come to the states, I’ll probably just buy the game digitally. Cheaper, and as it stands, it seems there is no reason to get a physical copy unless we get the reversible cover as well. (Unless there is something even better – but Shinwaka art cover is a bit hard to beat imo.)

  • Rob Machado

    Is the American version getting a collectors edition or just regular????

    • Nyxus

      As of now, only a regular edition has been announced (aside from the digital version).

  • MrVux007

    So im guessing they will be getting a Thomson machine gun in TPP 😛

  • flying_fox

    That cassette tape is great!

    • flying_fox

      By the way, is it confirmed that it will be available only at the physical Konamistyle store, and not on their online shop? 🙁

      • Nyxus

        Online as well, as far as I can tell.
