Hideo Kojima has turned up the heat for Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain's character design. According to the prolific director, it's all part of the plan to make the new characters more interesting to cosplayers... and the marketability sure doesn't hurt.


Still, we're eager to see the rest of the characters, and more importantly, more of MGS5. And to be honest, getting to see what some talented cosplayers can do with Yoji Shinkawa's designs will be cool, too.
