Metal Gear Solid Digital Graphic Novel - PSP - Preview
E3 2006 First Look Preview
The Silent Hill Experience brought a unique medium to the world of interactive entertainment. Though not actually a game, the title was very much a memorable experience, featuring nearly two dozen of the series’ best music, beautiful artwork, and eerily addictive storyline. Best of all, it ran at its own pace. You didn’t have to manually flip pages – the Experience did it for you, and in an original way no less with film-style transitions.
Metal Gear Solid will be getting a similar title, but Konami isn’t labeling it as such. They’re simply calling it exactly what it is: a digital graphic novel. In other words, the picture is crystal clear, the story advances on its own, and thanks to better living through modern technology, music is now a part of the reading experience. When you think about it, it’s almost like playing a console RPG, minus the turn-based battles and eye-popping CG sequences.
But don’t let the words “digital graphic novel” fool you. This novel features some of the best artwork to come from a video game series. Stylish, artistic, and very pleasing to the eye, the characters and other details have an exquisite appearance that Metal Gear Solid fans will appreciate.
Built with Hideo Kojima’s guidance (he planned and created the original concept of this title), the Metal Gear Solid Graphic Novel looks to be quite an experience.
