Konami of Europe has announced a new genre for PSPTM (PlayStationÂ® Portable), with the advent of Kojima Productions' Metal Gear Solid Digital Comic (working title), a specially created interactive comic specifically designed for the format.
Devised and created by Kojima Productions, Metal Gear Solid Digital Comic is based on the existing Metal Gear Solid comic book, but has been digitally edited into a 3D medium and now features sound effects, animations and music to bring it to life. This innovative title uses the new medium to tell the full story of the first Metal Gear Solid adventure.
As viewers progress through the story, they can zoom in and out of the images using the analogue stick and scan specific points of interest. These scanned images are then stored in a library of 100s of similarly noteworthy elements, adding replay value to the story.
"Metal Gear Solid Digital Comic represents the greatest source of information on the legendary Metal Gear Solid," commented Hans-Joachim Amann, Head of European Product Management of Konami of Europe. "It is effectively a digital Metal Gear Bible, and is another example of Kojima Productions' ability to think outside of the usual gaming realms and offers PSPTM users a different way to make use of their hardware."
