Game Informer March cover to feature MGSV: new Shinkawa art, more info and screens coming

Next month the famous game magazine Game Informer will have a 20 page coverage on Metal Gear Solid V, and the series in general. A brand new artwork by Yoji Shinkawa will decorate the magazine’s cover.


On Game Informer’s site, the description of what to expect is as follows:

“Game Informer traveled to Kojima Productions’ headquarters in Tokyo, Japan to cut through MGS V’s shroud of mystery.

Game Informer’s three-part cover story is divided into sections focusing on the history and future of Kojima, Ground Zeroes, and The Phantom Pain. We had four hours of exclusive hands-on time with Ground Zeroes, which we used to play through the main mission and experiment with extra modes. For The Phantom Pain, we have new details straight from Kojima and a host of gorgeous new screenshots showing off Kojima Productions’ Fox Engine. Our massive 20-page Metal Gear blowout is the perfect way to get ready for Ground Zeroes’ March 18 release on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360, as well as learn what to look forward to with The Phantom Pain.”

Looks like Ground Zeroes will take at least a couple of hours to complete, though it isn’t clear how much of the game they completed. Either way, February 6th we can expect another update from the magazine.

“Our deluge of Metal Gear Solid V coverage doesn’t end with the cover story. Readers can look forward to an entire month of bonus online coverage at, including video interviews with Kojima Productions’ art director Yoji Shinkawa, Konami’s worldwide technology director Julein Merceron, and Kojima himself. We also have extended hands-on impressions of Ground Zeroes and exclusive articles on the Metal Gear Solid series.”
