Square Enix Readying Metal Gear Solid Peace Walker Play Arts Figures
This was the "little surprise" producer Shinji Hashimoto teased earlier in the week.
Earlier this week, Square Enix producer Shinji Hashimoto posted a Tweet at the Square Enix Members Twitter account promising a "little surprise" for this week. That surprise was revealed today at Konami's Metal Gear Solid Peace Walker completion ceremony.
Konami has drafted Square Enix to develop Metal Gear Solid Peace Walker figures. The figures will be released under Square Enix's Play Arts line and formally known as "Metal Gear Solid Peace Walker Play Arts Kai."
The first figure in the collection is "Snake Sneaking Suits Version." This will arrive in June.
This summer, the lineup will get three boss machines. Later in the year, between summer and fall, the lineup will see figures for Snake in army fatigues and the giant Cocoon boss.
At the press conference, Hashimoto took the stage alongside Metal Gear series creator Hideo Kojima and revealed that he and Kojima, first spoke of the tie-up during one of their periodic lunch meetings. This was over one year ago.
