Screenshots: The Phantom Pain will allow you to create your own emblems

It was announced during Kojima Station Episode 34 that you will be able to create and customize your own emblems, which can then be used on your suit (on the right shoulder, the left is always the Diamond Dogs emblem), vehicles (chopper, jeeps, armored vehicles), containers, flags and exterior walls on Mother Base (by the way, you can adjust the color of your vehicles as well). The emblems can be created by combining different layers, including letters and silhouettes, placing them on top of each other as well as adjusting their colors. You will also be able to unlock new emblem parts by completing missions. Famitsu has published the images shown during the Kojima Station episode. The ‘DD’ emblem looks ugly on purpose, to ensure people will want to customize it.







A Big Boss emblem is included in all versions of the game (except for the regular and Day One Edition), which parts can also be used.

  • No Place For Hayter

    That is what I thought it would be, but having confirmation makes it that much cooler 🙂

  • PrinceHeir


    Also JPN edition is now up in play asia!,v:2

    Just preordered MGSV The Phantom Pain JPN Limited Edition/Special Edition PS4. I don’t know why there’s no cheap shipping. Your force to pay $29 with limited tracking or standard $30

    So now the price is $147, but eh it’s worth it to me 🙂

    • Big_Boss88

      Aye and the Collector’s Editions are starting to go up in stores too, be ready my brothers :).

      That is quite expensive shipping, I took home delivery with my CE for 10€ :P. It’s worth it indeed to pay a lot for something like this.

      • Bramdeman

        Great! Planning to order one too. Where did you buy it?

    • Jak

      What’s in that one? Isn’t the JPN with the 1:1 arm roughly the price of a ps4?

      • Big_Boss88

        I think there was some Shinkawa art in it too.

        • An artbook.

          • glitchbomb

            So the only diff is the arm and art book?
            Just wanted to be sure cause I am getting a CE copy from GameStop (no way am i waiting the weeks it could take to get the jpn set shipped here just to play it) and I don’t want a ton of overlap. Anything I have doubles of I will likely try to sell. Or trade, Like those digital goodies.

          • Apparently, Japan isn’t getting all the digital stuff in the special editions. Over there, what DLC you’re getting depends on the retailer. Other than that, both the Japanese special editions and the western releases include the map and the blu-ray (though it hasn’t been confirmed whether the blu-ray will include the same content or not). Also, the western CEs include a steelbook, the Japanese CEs include a ‘special case’ as well but not sure if that’s the same thing, it looks more like one of those foldable paper sleeves on the pictures.

            Keep in mind that the contents could still change.

    • hey prince, care to point me to a page to buy from japan? (maybe Konami has some links…?) in yens i mean, not buying overseas

    • glitchbomb

      Play Asia is just too expensive. They wanted over 600 for the CE. O.o
      I got mine (thnx to the heads up from Nyx) for 400.

      • PrinceHeir

        Where’d you preorder yours?

        JPN? US? EU Edition?

  • Big_Boss88

    Was thinking this is possible, but now we know! It seems we can make pretty many different ones.

    I will make some reaaaally BADASS emblem <3.
    Something like sheep emblem ,because I'm gonna be their master!

    • Kawaii Monster

      The Sheeps and Goats will become weapons that will far surpass Metal Gear…

      • They’re the missing links.

        • Adamska

          Sheep Gear Solid: Grass Eater

    • Adamska

      What if the Big Boss’ horn is in fact a sheep horn, huh? No demon, no ogre, sheep horn.

      • Theo Heisenberg Constantine

        Kaz im already a sheep.

        • Adamska

          Why we are
          still here? Just to bleat? Every night, I can feel my wool… and my fleece… even
          my fur. The body I’ve lost… the herd I’ve lost… won’t stop hurting.

          • Big_Boss88

            Haha ;D, a good one.

          • Theo Heisenberg Constantine

            i’ll make them give baaaaaaaack our herd.

        • Edward Wokhands

          They fleeced us like a damn fiddle!

  • Snake-O-Chan

    I’m so pissed that there is no CE for PC :'(

    • Big_Boss88

      I would perhaps be too if had no console, not sure. But I’m super happy we can play MGSV on PC 😉 and that is what matters to me most. Now my brother and other friends can experience it too, who are not familiar with MGS if only have PC.

      • gerber

        Yeah however playing the MGS V as a first MGS is not a good idea. I am convincing all this kind of guys to play at least Snake Eater, I promise them that MGS V will be MUCH more juicy then

        • Big_Boss88

          Hmm yeah it might not be the best place to start ;D, but Kojima said he try make it easier for new players to understand. Maybe all the flashbacks we get etc. But starting from beginning is the best imo.

        • Edward Wokhands

          I know two people who are thinking of starting with this game. I keep begging them to, like you, at least play Snake Eater but for some reason they just won’t. Their loss I guess. It’s one of the best games of all time. It’s still only rivaled by MGS4 for me.

    • gerber

      Yeah, I’m probably going for PC version but it’s steam only and unfortunately, I’m this kind of guy that love his boxes… But I’m still happy. Ground Zeroes showed that they did a great job on pc version optimalisation, and we get only 2 weeks later release (look at GTA 5, they keep moving the release date for pc)

      • Jonny McLaurine

        Well it’s still 6 months off and anything could happen because as we all know kojima can be a very OCD type of person and this game could still be pushed back and/or pushed forward. More likely to go back than forward. Just keep hope up!

        • Edward Wokhands

          He’s kind of obsessed with never delaying games so I’m guessing that’s why it’s September because it guarantees plenty of time. I’d be incredibly surprised if the date changed.

    • No Place For Hayter

      I think the reason for this is the digital only steam release, if there was a psychical release I bet dollars to donuts they would have a CE for PC. Honestly it sucks to only be able to get the DRM steam version, it would be amazing to get a DRM free version of MGSV.

      • Edward Wokhands

        It might come to GOG. If it did that would be perfect, they’re making their own Steam-esque stand alone game collection app. I’m really starting to hate Steam.

        • No Place For Hayter


          If only everything came to GOG.

  • Josh Houchin

    I hope they include the MG2 smiling cartoon FOXHOUND logo as an emblem.

    • Golgari

      Oh yes!

      This will be My Emblem for sure 😀

      • Josh Houchin

        Definitely! I wonder if they’ll include a vector editor like GTA5 for more elaborate customization, or just mixing and matching pre-existing layers like HALO.
        A cool emblem to try and recreate would be the Sons of Liberty flag.

      • Kol Leqejza

        looks like i was wrong last time about the emblems. so u can decide which will be shown. i like to keep the MSF logo on the suits.

  • MAG V Supreme

    Hopefully they will allow some type of upload feature. Or a pc wiz figures out a way to upload tgem. Got alot of ideas

    • No Place For Hayter

      There probably won’t be an upload feature simply because of the way they were discussing making your emblem, I imagine it will be like the Halo games when making emblems in which you select and change different parts of the emblem but you don’t get to create your own pixel by pixel. That being said chances are high a PC wiz will create a mod that lets you do so.

  • Is this also going to be used on MGO clan emblems?

  • XIFF-5

    Help please… I have a question, is the Premium Package (Konami style Limited Edition) is limited? means that it could finish in the future before the release date of the game? because maybe I’ll order it before the release date later if it does not finish, but if it does finish I have to order it now. please.

    • Edward Wokhands

      If you’re asking whether they’ll stop making it once it’s sold out then I think the answer is yes.

    • glitchbomb

      Yeah, they could defintely sell out well before the release of the game in Sept.
      If you wants copy you have to jump on it asap.

  • RJRO

    This would look great. But in the first run will keep it vanilla.

    • No Place For Hayter

      Lol, well we do get a Metal Gear which is close enough to an Evangelion for me, lol. you just have to fulton better staff to pilot it.

      • korruption

        Good luck trying to fulton Asuka. Fucking tsunderes…

        • glitchbomb


  • Guest

    Inb4 dicks ad brony emblems…

    • WhatTheJuicay

      thats all i care for. Wonder how many people will steal from my base with pictures of sodomy depicted on them.

  • Invader_skoodge
    • Let Kojima know, maybe he’ll delay the game for another year. 😛

    • ThreeMadFrogs

      Yeah it’s kind of surprising that with the technology of games in this day and age, wheels are still difficult to make round.

    • José Lucas

      It is an exchange. Less polygons for wheels, more polygons to characters. Ps4 60 fps, 30 fps Ps3.

    • Theo Heisenberg Constantine

      octagons? patriots confirmed for phantom pain!

    • ChatWraithShichi

      It’s probably console, and that’s really minor. I don’t think you typically see the wheels of the heli when you’re in it, or when there’s shit shooting at you.

    • Edward Wokhands

      The rest of the helicopter looks like a photograph and, of course, gamers hone in on the slightly unround wheels. -____- Remember, this is a PS3 game running on PS4 and PC so most assets are shared.

      • Calm down. I’m not a graphic whore. I will buy the game, unrounded wheels or not. But the truth is there. I found them funny.

        Have a nice day 🙂

        • Edward Wokhands

          To be honest they really stood out to me too, I just try to ignore them. You have a nicer day! ¬_¬

    • glitchbomb

      Oh god…they are! Ew.
      Lol everything else looks so awesome.

  • FOX

    No need more info, we know when we are getting the game 🙂

  • ElAlca

    Is that a lion? I never thought that Snake would support the Lannisters xc

  • Pingback: Metal Gear Solid V will have a very deep and detailed weapon system thanks to Shinkawa, Kojima was blown away | Metal Gear Informer()

  • Cipher

    I would keep the Diamond Dogs logo, the same way Big Boss created it

    • Edward Wokhands

      Nah, Diamond Dinosaurs.

  • PrinceHeir
    • Big_Boss88

      Umbrella ftw ;D.

    • Edward Wokhands

      Maybe there’ll be an easter egg that disables the rain if you use that.

  • RevolverRoden


  • Kol Leqejza

    official outer heaven logo from metal gear (1987) (the swastika is not a german-nazi thing check wiki for details, don’t want to open any controversy. just thinking it would make as a good emblem)

    • Raymondius

      You’re right, I’ve always loved the emblem for the buddhist swashsticka, but I know people wouldn’t understand if I wear it during Mother Base infiltration or something. Still, I would try even if I have to name my army “NOT NAZI, I AM A BUDDHIST BIG BOSS”.

    • glitchbomb

      Where was this originally shown? In an old manual?

      • Kol Leqejza

        don’t know for sure. i’d say it’s concept art

  • Javier Sosa

    I am going to fill the hard disk of my ps4 with tpp screenshots.

  • warnerve

    Wait, if the original DD logo is on the left shoulder, doesn’t that mean Motherbase will be lost again? Then we build our own customized motherbase??

  • I was watching a video from Yong Yea, he said that Kojima told in the last video we can manage our MB easily and without anybody pissing us off. He said that at certain moment at the story, the online VS feature will be “activated”, and then other players will annoy us. Which drives me to think that maybe there are bazillion clones of Big Boss, and we are all playing as clones. Let’s see. This game keep me intrigued as hell. >.<

    I hope that cutscenes and storytelling stuff will be loooooong. I want everything closed in the saga, i want to enjoy every freaking second of the game.
    But at same time, an open game to another new possible games in the future to develop new and old characters; as Kojima, again, said that this will be his last MGS.

    Would be cool to have a countdown timer here in the website, counting the days we have to wait for the game.

    Have a nice day 🙂

    • korruption

      I’ve expressed concern about the same feature with other players being in your game and all. I think it’s a given that such a function should be optional, cause not a whole lot of people want to come back from a mission of Miller and Ocelot taking turns barking in their ears to see the whole based robbed of everything but a few silos tagged with dick emblems.

    • cardboardbox engineer

      this countdown timer is not a bad idea at all, I would love that to be on the home page,

      • Only problem is: what timezone should be used for the countdown?

        • cardboardbox engineer

          GMT??[how about just counting down the number of days?

        • I saw you put it! Thank you! <3 😀
          It's cool.

  • ChatWraithShichi

    If it’s as thorough as Armored Core and Battlefield 4’s logo creation, expect darth vader, shiny butts, and a lot of dicks.

  • KiloTwoOne

    Wonder who is going to get the record for the first penis emblem.
