Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain product line up shown off at Kojima Station

During episode 34 of Kojima Station, the impressive product line for Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain was discussed. As revealed yesterday, there will be several editions of the game available when it launches in September.

While they didn’t have the physical collector’s editions to show just yet, they did have some of the items included, most notably the full-scale bionic arm replica (for Japan) as well as the halve scale version (for NA and the PAL region).

Kojima demonstrated some of its possible uses as he used it to strangle himself and to pester Yoji Shinkawa. Or you can just have it hold your DualShock controller.

This is the half scale version for the western market:

Here you can see a comparison of the two arms:

It appears you can take both arms off their pedestals as well.

The special edition PlayStation 4 made an appearance on the show as well. Kojima was asking for suggestions on a name for the system, so if you have an idea send him a tweet.

Furthermore, they talked about the emblem creation in The Phantom Pain, and about the Metal Gear Online trailer with commentary that was released yesterday. The show concluded with the usual fanart competition.

The next episode of Kojima Station is planned for March 26th.

  • XIFF-5

    The PS4 Edition is MASTERPIECE.

    • John

      Pc version will be literally better in everyway though…

      • No Place For Hayter

        While this is true the PC version requires work to get that comfy living room play and a certain set of system requirements to play said game, while the consoles version and simply buy and play.

        The PS4 version if just as close as we can get to the PC version, which is close enough for me……well that and I don’t have a computer that would run MGSV let alone a 4k monitor to truly enjoy the full awesome of MGSV.

        • Edward Wokhands

          I have the PC version of GZ and it’s incredible. It’s honestly the nicest looking game I’ve ever played and I’ve played all the “great” looking games. What surprised me though is just how close the PS4 version is, the framerate is a SOLID 60fps. There really isn’t that much of a difference unless you start increasing the resolution. Overall the graphics make no difference to the fun that can be had though. It’s impossible to not have fun in GZ, especially once you start playing and experimenting with the AI.

          One negative point is the CPU requirements. If you put lighting on extra high your CPU will start to fry unless it’s pretty powerful. When it comes to playing on your sofa that isn’t too hard, just buy an HDMI cable and a 360 wireless receiver. I’ll be getting the PC version of TPP and I hope they include PS4 button prompts like Far Cry 4 so I can use my Dual Shock 4, I love it way more than the 360 controller.

      • He’s talking about the console, not the game.

      • Edward Wokhands

        It’s okay, cry. We’re all doing it.

  • kirtanloorii

    All of that stuff looks really cool. But I don’t think I’ll be able to get them all.

  • psychomantis18

    CAN WE PLEASE GET A RELEASE DATE FOR THE PREMIUM EDITION?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!

    • The Premium Pack is releasing the same day as the game, on September 2nd.

      • psychomantis18

        Sorry, should of clarrified that I meant a pre-order date. I want to order it. Right now.

      • Edward Wokhands

        Are you referring to the Japanese version releasing on the 2nd?

    • I just REALLY want the full size arm replica. The Premium is just so damn expensive compared to the collectors though.

      • psychomantis18

        True but oh so worth it. The Premium Editions of MGS are the only way to go

        • Believe me, I would buy it if I had the money.
          Hard to earn money when you have school to worry about at the same time

  • Altaim

    so cool

    • Ricardo Oe

      Just the game to me, will be cool…

      • Shadow Rex

        I know but I’m uncontrollably fan boying the hell out over this merch. I live in Aus though and the CE is $250 here. I might be missing out on this one. I think the full scale arm would be a cool desktop item, I really want the art book from the Japan Editions and even more so the “Making of” blu-ray.

        • Edward Wokhands

          Me too. No other game has been able to do this to me. I want EVERYTHING related to MGS5. If I can I’ll be getting the Japanese CE as well as the EU one. It’s a pity they’re only releasing the full scale arm in Japan.

  • So does our version of the BB hand fingers can be moved?!! Hopefully its not static which would suck badly.

  • solidsnack

    the small hand looks sad next to the big hand ;(

    • Well the big one is twice as expensive. 😛

      • solidsnack

        hey good point hahah tbh i’d love either of them. i’d probably take a mgs toilet roll dispenser!

  • Ninja_Se7eN

    Does anyone know a site that’ll ship the collectors edition to Europe?

    I don’t think the collectors edition will be available in the country I live in :(.

      • Ninja_Se7eN

        Yeah but I spoke with them via live chat and they told me they don’t ship the collectors edition internationally because of its weight :'(.

        • Oh really? But the CE isn’t going to be UK only right? So stores in other countries should still get it.

          • Ninja_Se7eN

            That’s what they told me. I’m able to pre-order it using the site’s form though so it’s kind of weird.

            I hope so, but having lived all of my life in Portugal I can say it wouldn’t be the first time items like these don’t make it to my country.

        • Bramdeman

          Damn, really? Well I already paid so they have to come with a solution.

          • Ninja_Se7eN

            I would talk with them if I were you.

          • Bramdeman

            Damn it sucks. I already sent them a mail.

          • Ninja_Se7eN

            Please let us know if everything ended well on your end ;).

          • Bramdeman

            It will. They will send it by courier because of the weight. All good!

          • Ninja_Se7eN

            That’s good news :).
            And yet they keep telling me they won’t ship that item internationally. What the hell?

          • Bramdeman

            You should ask user Edward Wokhands here. He told me about the delivery by DPD. He asked GAME by mail about the weight issue and they responded with the courier thing. I think we can almost be certain this is legit. If international shipment is not possible then they have to tell customers so at the orderpage. I hope it turns out good for you!

          • Bramdeman

            Well I recently got a mail from Game and they said they will not sent it oversea because of the weight. It’s really starting to bother and confusing me now. They haven’t received payment yet because paypal holds it for the games launch and then they send the payment. Really annoying. Fortunately its easy to cancel the payment if the shipment isn’t possible.

          • Ninja_Se7eN

            Yeah, I really don’t get what’s so hard about shipping it internationally.
            I get that the shipping must cost more if if items weigh over 1kg but it’s not like they’re the ones who’re going to pay for it.

          • Bramdeman

            Hopefully we will be fine. Waiting for a new mail to arrive.

          • Bramdeman

            They keep telling me, so I canceled it. Hopefully my local retailers will get enough of them. Normaly it isn’t a big issue here in the Netherlands. We keep in touch!

          • Ninja_Se7eN

            Hope it works out for you ;).
            I’m looking over here in Portugal but no one has it yet.

          • Bramdeman

            I’m pretty sure you are able to order one this week!

          • Ninja_Se7eN

            I’m not so sure, but I hope you’re right :)!

    • Big_Boss88

      I believe they will come to almost every country. I was surprised to see it today already in Finnish game store, so I hope it come to your too. Big boxes like CE should be able to ship into other countries imo, dunno what those live chat fellas are saying. You should check your local stores again tomorrow because it maybe arrive later to certain countries .

      Only stores I checked was Nyx’s Game UK and Gamestop, before found it in my local one. Then there is Amazon but had no time to look, sry if cant help much 🙁 posting with tablet and gotta go sleep.

      • Ninja_Se7eN

        No problem man, you helped plenty.
        I’m going to check out the “new game” store over here tomorrow.
        It’s called “new game” over here because the real “game” stores went bankrupt :(.

  • No Place For Hayter

    Kojima “Look at all the cool stuff you guys can do with the full scale arm :)”

    Kojima “I ummmm have no idea what this little arm could be used for, I don’t know maybe the Americans will figure something out, after all they will be paying for it”

    • Big_Boss88

      LOL

    • i thought it was for holding your phone will you connect it to the idroid app

      • Bramdeman

        That’s a cool idea!

  • The size doesn’t matter, they said… 🙁

  • Big_Boss88

    So much cool stuff, ty Nyx for these amazing news ;).

    Can the small arm hold a controller too ?

    Btw just realized I’ve followed MGS 17 years already, long time of my life lol. Been such a great pleasure to see it change during times. Like graphics and gameplay etc. ^^

    • Shadow Rex

      Wow yeah so true, since the first MGS. Being 27 myself this year, that is crazy. Thanks Kojima… Thajima.

      • Big_Boss88

        Nice yea me too May 4th xD…
        Lets enjoy TPP for years to come <3.

        Thajima, our God.

        • Shadow Rex

          Hahaha got two days on me, May 6th.

      • Edward Wokhands

        Yeah, I’ve been playing it since before I could really follow the story properly. Being able to knock on walls and seeing the guards follow your footprints is what first attracted me to MGS1. What a cool feature the footprint thing is, especially on such primitive hardware.

  • Bramdeman

    I bought the Collectors Edition!!! Marry me everyone!!

    • Big_Boss88

      Me too ^_^, I am happy for everyone who manage to get it :D.

      • Bramdeman

        Did you order one at the site game?

        • Big_Boss88

          No I used a nearby Finnish game store, where I usually get my games from ;).
          Was checking GameStop first, but it didn’t have it yet on their site.

          • Bramdeman

            Well good for you! 🙂 I orderd it at Game UK but one of the members here said the package is to heavy for shipment (I live in the Netherlands). And I already paid for it… I’ve sent them a mail to confirm it. Hopefully, everything will be fine.

          • Edward Wokhands

            I got an email from Game after asking them if I could pay more for guaranteed next day delivery. I don’t want it coming late, 6 months is a long time, 6 months and 1 day is too long! Anyway, they sent me this:

            I can confirm that due to the weight of this order it will be shipped via DPD.

            So they will send it, it’s just that it will be via courier.

          • Bramdeman

            You are my hero man! Thanks a lot!

      • Mini gear

        i cant get one in US yet 🙁

        • I pre-ordered from Gamestop. In Denmark tohugh, but can’t you go to Gamestop and ask?

          • Mini gear

            ill try, i checked website and it aint there though

          • It’s not on the Danish website either. I got an email from them though.

          • KiloTwoOne

            I checked at the one near me yesterday. Nothing yet,they said maybe online. Nothing that I found there either. So it is a waiting game for now. The price is low considering. Hope to snag one when they are available.

          • Keep your eyes open. I couldn’t sleep until I get my pre-order.. That tells you everything you need to know about me.

        • Big_Boss88

          I live in Finland so it maybe came to Europe countries before US, not sure :(.

          • Mini gear

            Yeah, I think us is last :/ I really hope I don’t miss it

    • I secured two. One for me, and one for a friend.

      • Bramdeman

        Great feeling huh? Did you order at gamestop?

        • Yeah. They sent out email’s saying you can pre-order them at any of their stores. So I did not hesitate.

          • Bramdeman

            Got one from Game Uk. I hope they have enough editions for everyone. At least we got ours early. 🙂

          • Yeah me too. I own pretty much every MGS game there is. Some still in it’s factory sealed condition, so I didn’t want to waste any more time, risking me not getting a pre-order in.

          • Shalashaska Has Landed

            Wait. You pre-ordered The Collector’s Edition at Gamestop?!

            I’ve been calling 2 of my local Gamestop, and they act like I’m speaking gibberish lol. All they keep listing is the Day One edition.

          • Yeah, in Denmark though. Maybe the US is a little slow on the news this time.

          • Shalashaska Has Landed

            Ah, gotcha. They’re totally dropping the ball over here. Or, maybe I’m just being too anxious (with good reason IMO). Lol

          • I kept pestering Gamestop, hoping some of them got an inside scoop on a Collector’s Edition for MGSV.
            Finally they released the Collector’s, and first thing I did was pre-order the damned thing.

          • Mini gear

            still none in us

          • Plissken

            U.S. gamestop only has Day one edition for all systems, nothing regarding CE or DD PS4. I’ll keep you posted if it changes

          • Bramdeman

            I hope you are able to order one soon!

          • KiloTwoOne

            No, they seem to be dogging it here in the States. I was told to check in today and see if it pops up.

          • Shalashaska Has Landed

            Lol yeah man I just realized it not too long ago. Even Canada has it up now. I wonder if this is Konami’s sense of humor, for all the hate and grief the predominate US western fanbase have been giving them in the past, with all the self-entitlement and screaming in all-caps and whatnot lol.

  • Gawd

    Hey guys I was just wondering would the PS4 be region locked if it is only released in Japan…. and what does region lock directly entail? I want this to be my PS4.

    • There’s no region lock on the PS4, no matter where the game or console is released.

      • Gawd

        So I would be able to change the language and play NA games on it? Are there any possible issues that I can’t fathom?

        • Yes, you can choose English on the console. However, you might not be able to choose English in the game if the game you bought is is (say) Japanese.

          So console language, yes!
          Game language, depends on the game.

          • Gawd

            Ok. So I can play a NA copy of MGSV(English) on a japanese PS4? (Want direct confirmation lol)

          • Yes. Without a doubt.

          • Gawd

            Thank you very much.

          • You can also run a US account (or wherever you are from) on whichever console.
            For instance. I live in Denmark, but I have a US PSN account, I buy games on the US PSN, and run the games with no problem at all. Offline and online.

          • Edward Wokhands

            I actually forgot that the PS4 isn’t region locked. That’s so awesome. …starting to consider that Phantom Pain PS4 now. ;>_>

  • Gawd

    Where are you guys getting the collector’s edition from?

    • Mini gear

      yeah i need one, il literly die if i dont buy one

    • I bought mine from Gamestop.
      I know GAME UK also have them.

  • Gawd

    I’m playing the first MGS (I bought the legacy collection)—- fighting Grey Fox. Do you guys think I’ll reach an appreciative completion of the games by September 1st? I’ve greatly admired the MGS series from afar and felt a calling to dive into it. 6 months seems like more than enough time — “but is it?”

    • No Place For Hayter

      Depends on how much time you’ve got, give me a week of only MGS and I could finish every MGS game. 6 months is certainly enough especially when playing them in release order and you don’t 100% every single game, for example I personally wouldn’t do the VR mission for 1 or 2 unless you have a lot of time, but definitely play peace walker and ground zeroes last, peace walker is the largest time sink and ground zeroes is only a prologue thus really short.

      • Gawd

        I got ground zeroes and couldn’t resist playing it… did i ruin it for myself?

        • No Place For Hayter

          Nope, everything from ground zeroes is impossible to avoid simply because of the marketing of MGS-TPP, unfortunately, it is impossible to not know the story of GZ due to its connection to TPP, so no biggy there, I mean we all knew the basic drive behind Big Boss in TPP before GZ was even out, lol. You could play the games in any order without ruining anything (I think the worst that could happen is spoiling some of MGS3 by playing peace walker before, but that again is just info that is really hard not to know even if you haven’t play the series. So nope you didn’t ruin anything) Kojima likes to make his games stand alone so that you don’t have to play any of the previous games to get or enjoy the new one. I was primarily mentioning GZ last simply because it was the shortest, so nothing ruined, I think the worst that happened was you spoiled yourself on the awesome FOX engine and now have to play games without the FOX engine lol

          • Gawd

            That’s definitely true playing MGS 1 and having to use directional pads and not being able to quickly switch between weapons is challenging but so far I must say i love this game just beat Psycho Mantis and “HIDEO” popping up on the screen and switching between controllers felt “cool”; I can already tell this is a undated-able classic !

          • No Place For Hayter

            Yep full of awesome, some people cant get past the older graphics but that has never bothered me 🙂 a great game is a great game

          • Edward Wokhands

            I actually don’t even think the MGS1 graphics look “old”. Kojima managed to create a timeless engine in my opinion. Considering the hardware it was built on, MGS is incredible. It has a really gritty look to it that fits perfectly with the setting.

          • Edward Wokhands

            One piece of advice I’d have for everyone who is thinking of starting MGS is that they start with MGS1. Just because it’s really tough to play 2 and then go back because of the controls and camera system. MGS1 is an amazing game in it’s own right but it feels really unique compared to 2, 3 and 4 which all feel like evolutions of each other but all feel like they use the same basic engine and gameplay systems as each other. After playing 1 through 4 I tried starting again at 1 and it was really hard. It’s even harder to go back to the first 2 2D games. Playing in release order is definitely the way to go.

          • Edward Wokhands

            Wasn’t the whole story pretty much released with that MGS4 companion app on PS3? I’ve forgot the name of it but there was an awesome PS3 game/app thing that was like an encyclopedia of everything MGS. All the characters and their stories.

            I wonder if that’s still on the store?

          • No Place For Hayter

            Never was a fan of the flimsy companion app, but it does exist, don’t know if it still does lol, haven’t checked in a while.

          • Edward Wokhands

            Yeah it wasn’t very well made but it had a lot of great information in it.

          • Edward Wokhands

            You’re right. I only just realized a few weeks ago how awesome it is that you could actually play MGS3, PW and GZ without even knowing that MGS1, 2 and 4 exist.

    • decoyF0XX

      More than enough. I played through the whole series last year (MGS1, MGS2, PW and GZ for the for the first time) in maybe one month or a bit more. Great experience!

    • Edward Wokhands

      Yeah, that’s enough time even if you’re only playing a few hours after work or school. A few years ago I was able to play through MGS1-4 in about 3 weeks playing in the evening. I’ve been obsessed ever since. I think MGS is one series that is best when binge played, because then you can follow the story more easily. 3 and 4 actually affected me emotionally! I don’t think they would have hit as hard if I didn’t play them back to back.

  • Am I the only one hoping they will release the full size replica arm by itself at some point?
    I really don’t want to pay 500$ for the premium package when I already have the Collector’s Edition.

    • You’re not the only one, but as of now they don’t seem to have plans to do that.

      https://twitter.com/JunkerHQNet/status/573609041924112384

      • Expect me on ebay!

        • flying_fox

          But in Japan, the only difference between the 10000 yens Special Edition and the 32000 yens Premium Pack is… the arm. I don’t imagine that arm being sold separately for a good price.

          • Me neither, but it’s my only chance at this point.
            I’m not made of money, I still have school, I can’t just go buy stuff left and right.
            I will get one at some point, I swear it!

  • Silverius

    Is it really over 300$ US dollars in order to get the premium edition from japan?

    • Yes, easily. On eBay it’s well over $400 (and selling).

      • Silverius

        Damn Nyx, i cant even manage to preorder the collectors edition from Gamestop in the US yet, i guess i’ll have to get over the life size scale arm then 🙁

  • FMercenary

    Everything has been said about all this cool MGSV stuff so all I can say is that Ms. Kobayashi is looking pretty good.

  • PrinceHeir

    So i’m the only one getting the JPN Special Edition(no arm replica) here?

    Everyone seems to be getting the Collector’s Edition. I’m just fine with the art box style. I can live without the arm replica. I do want a Shinkawa reversible cover though.

    Good for those who preordered though. Seems Konami will be making bank come September XD

  • vic boss

    Does anyone know if the collectors edition is already available to preorder in gamestop of USA? or any other place in America?

  • Aaron

    I neeeeeeeeeeeeeed that PS4 in Australia!!!!! D:

  • Xomak

    Seeing that full scale arm next the the half…. I need the full scale! Haha, I just realized how fun it would be to have it displayed gripping something. I intend to pick up that iDroid case (despite not having an iphone 5), and it’ll go well with the arm…

    I would love see the arm on display next the Terminator arm.

    • Edward Wokhands

      I know! Imagine the cosplay too if you stuck a strap on it.

  • Victor Medeiros Coelho

    So, am i the only one that wants that watch? And i dont even use watches =/

  • umbralex

    i don’t know you guys , but i prefer a sneaking suit venom snake Play arts kai on CE than the bionic arm.

    • But the arm cannot be bought separately. So it’s more of a unique collector’s item.

  • Vegas

    I will give an advice to Kojima of a possible use of that god forsaken little arm :@ i want an arm that protects my controller, not my iPod.

    • Edward Wokhands

      It’d be cool to make the arm into a docking/charging station for Dual Shock 4 controllers. Put it in the hand and it lights up. It’d be as if Big Boss upgraded it in game to have a “charge” ability. Or maybe it charges USB stuff with the stun ability.

      • Vegas

        Nice, thats a good idea. Shame that they didn’t bring that to reality.

  • Will Hough

    Do any of you guys know how to get the Seiko watch pre-ordered in the UK, what’s the best forwarding service if it’s not getting released to the UK e.t.c?
