Metal Gear Solid 5 art director Yoji Shinkawa has discussed the game’s darker edge in a new interview, and sheds light on his favourite characters in the game.

Watch on YouTube

The interview was conducted by Konami at E3 a few weeks ago, and sheds light on the game’s dark tone.

I interviewed Shinkawa earlier this year on the game’s development, and during the discussion he explained his early years working on the franchise, how he creates his characters and what it’s like working alongside Hideo Kojima. Check it out here.
