Artist Pays Special Tribute To Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain's Mechanical Arm

by Kyle Hilliard on Apr 12, 2015 at 06:52 AM

Ahead of the September 1 release of Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, artist Emilio Lopez has crafted a piece commemorating the loss and eventual replacement of Big Boss' limb. You can find the full piece below.

We're still not sure how crucial Big Boss' robotic arm will be to the overall plot of the game, but Konami seems to placing it front and center as an important part of the game by offering a statue of the hand as part of the game's collector's edition.

Konami, Metal Gear creator Hideo Kojima, and Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain all seem to be going through some kind of strange separation, though exactly what is happening is still unclear. You can find out more about it here, but the game is on track for release on September 1 on Xbox One and Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4. The PC version of the game releases September 15.

You can find more from Emilio Lopez on his DeviantArt page as well as his official website.
