Close Up: Metal Gear Solid 4 Limited Edition (Japanese version)

Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots Limited Edition was released in Japan on June 12th 2008.



The outer sleeve is made of sturdy paper. It features a close up render of Old Snake’s face, similar to the US regular edition of the game, but without the logo on it. Inside the sleeve is another cardboard holder with the same illustration on it. The front doesn’t contain any additional information or logos, just the printed artwork, giving it a nice and clean look.


It holds two cases: a steelbook and a regular Blu-Ray case. The latter one contains the game itself. It looks similar to the European version of the game, but with a white background instead of a black one.



The steelbook looks nice as well: a matte metallic surface with an artwork of Old Snake on the front. The back has the Kojima Productions logo printed on it. This case holds a bonus disc.


This limited edition doesn’t have a lot of extras: actually it only comes with a bonus disc. The main selling point is its presentation, which is indeed pretty nice.


For the avid Metal Gear collector this is an attractive item, because of the stylish look of the box and its contents. It’s not something you really buy for the extras, but certainly a nice looking game to have in your collection.

    did you buy it on amazon JP or some place?

      A friend brought it to me from Japan, he bought it secondhand (as well as a load of other MGS items I asked him to bring).

    I have this, still sealed. Perfectly new.

      I actually wanted to get one that isn’t sealed for now, because then I wouldn’t break it open, and I really wanted to see the contents. 😉 Besides, it’s a lot more expensive if you want a sealed version.

        I lucked this one out. It’s perfect and sealed. I know what’s inside and that is enough to satisfy me. 😉

          Not the same as exploring it with your own eyes….

        I don’t know why you’d want a sealed one either. No point buying it if you’re not going to look at it.
