Metal Gear Solid Digital Comic

Check it out here.

Devised and created by Kojima Productions, Metal Gear Solid Digital Comic is based on the existing IDW Metal Gear Solid comic book drawn by Ashely Wood, 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.

But will the format catch on? And will it sell more than the comic? Only time will tell.
