Metal Gear Solid


 

In celebration of the original Metal Gear Solid‘s 31-year anniversary, the director of the upcoming film adaptation has teased that he’ll be sharing 31 new pieces of “nano-machine-infused-artwork.”

For the next 31 days, Jordan Vogt-Roberts will reveal a piece of a curated art collection, all of which were fan-made creations. The Kong: Skull Island director shared the concept for the month-long activity on Twitter, which included a unique video. As seen in the original tweet below, the short clip, done in the style of the original Konami game’s Codec radio system, features Colonel Campbell urging fans of the series to check in every day for more art reveals.

As Campbell explained in the video, though, the artwork won’t be related to the upcoming Sony film. Of course, with today, July 13th, being the anniversary of Hideo Kojima’s first game in the series, Vogt-Roberts has shared the first of the 31 images. According to the director, the first from the batch was done by Nick Foreman, a concept artist at Sumo Digital. Check out the tweet below to see Foreman’s mech image.

While it appears the celebratory event won’t be offering any hints toward the progress of the Metal Gear Solid movie, Vogt-Roberts has already teased a few interesting plans he has for his project. Last year, the director explained his adaptation of Kojima’s story will play with the concepts of time and space, and that players familiar with the original game shouldn’t expect a straightforward retelling of its events.

It was also previously confirmed that Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom‘s Derek Connolly will pen the film, which means he either has played or is currently playing some of the Metal Gear Solid titles. Vogt-Roberts explained in an interview last year that the writer of his film had to be familiar with the gameplay and plot of several entries in Kojima’s series, and if not, he would make them play a few.
