Kojima visits Japanese stores on The Phantom Pain’s launch day

Yesterday, Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain was released in Japan, and Hideo Kojima, Yoji Shinkawa and Akayo Terashima moved around Tokyo to check in stores and give out some autographs. Of course this resulted in a whole bunch of pictures, which you can check out below.

“Good morning, raining on the launch day. I’m a rain bringer, sorry.”
