More drama as the apparent final box art for console versions of Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain is missing some key elements, notably any mention of series creator Hideo Kojima and his studio.
Already we've had revelations of 'trouble' behind-the-scenes, with Konami having removed all trace of 'Kojima' from the game's official website, before a public backlash saw it returned.
Looking at the officialfor Metal Gear Solid 5 shows the lack of Kojima Productions and mention of its creator, all except the Steam version. The digital release on PC still carries both the logo alongside the Fox engine symbol and the tag 'A Hideo Kojima Game'.
A recent tweet from a Japanese voice actor for the series says thathas been 'disbanded'. Even if this proves true it seems rather disrespectful for both the studio that did create the biggest entry in the series to date, and to remove mention of the man who started it all.
Is Konami dead set on some revisionist history?
Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain releases digitally on PC September 15th.
