No, this isn’t Metal Gear artwork, nor is it concept art for Death Stranding. But if it look like it could be, that’s because it was drawn by Yoji Shinkawa, who’s done concept art for Metal Gear games since 1997 (and who’s now at the end Kojima Productions studio as we know). The artwork below is for Call of Duty Zombies Chronicles, the latest expansion to the hugely popular FPS Call of Duty: Black Ops III. Shinkawa made some character art as well as a dynamic PlayStation 4 theme for the title.
During a livestream earlier today studio head of Treyarch Jason Blundell explains that as a huge Metal Gear fan, it was great to have him create art for the game. “To be able to work with him and have him realize our main characters in his very unique and distinctive style was an opportunity I couldn’t really pass up.”
