Dark Horse Comics has been knocking it out of the park with its gaming books as of late, and it is about to release The Art of Metal Gear Solid I-IV – translated into English for the first time.
The Art of Metal Gear Solid I–IV contains two historic volumes of concept and key art from Yoji Shinkawa, art director and illustrator behind Metal Gear Solid, MGS2: Sons of Liberty, MGS3: Snake Eater, MGS4: Guns of the Patriots, and MGS: Peace Walker. This definitive chronicle of characters, vehicles, and weapons is the ultimate companion to the tactical espionage and future warfare of Hideo Kojima’s celebrated Metal Gear universe, translated to English for the first time ever while leaving the original Japanese handwriting intact. Japanese publisher, Shinkigensha, is the original publisher of The Art of Metal Gear Solid I–IV.
The Art of Metal Gear Solid I-IV is actually a two book set that comes in a slipcase so it looks extra impressive on your shelf. Of course you’ll need to shell out $79.99 in order to get your hands on the book when it arrives on May 8, 2018.
