Metal Gear Solid 2: The Movie.. I mean Slide Show

Bande dessinée is a French phrase for comic, cartoon, comic book or graphic novel. So it’s pretty strange to find the phrase attached to a Metal Gear Solid 2 movie DVD, titled Metal Gear Solid 2: Bande Dessinee.

Like the name implies, Metal Gear Solid 2: Bande Dessinee isn’t your typical collection of FMVs taken from MGS 2, but it is instead “a digital moving illustration collection, which is also voiced”.

Here’s the description of the DVD:

The legendary infitrattion mission completed by Solid Snake is made into a film. This is not an anime or a comic strip but a digital moving illustration collection drawn by Ashley Wood and is completely voiced, in Japanese, by a star studded cast of seiyuu, including the famous Ootsuka Akio who plays Snake.

The events in this DVD come from Metal Gear Solid and Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty. These two stories fill in the links between MGS to MGS4. The plot features what Solid Snake is doing during Raiden’s acts.

The package includes a fully voiced upgraded version  of Metal Gear Solid 1: Bande Dessinee. The story from Metal Gear Solid lasts for about two hours and the one from Metal Gear Solid 2 lasts for about 3 hours, totalling up to 5 hours of screen time.

Aside from the large volume of high quality illustrations, the package also comes with a special features disk to commemorate the oncoming release of Metal Gear Solid 4 and all of these are contained in a steel case drawn by Aheley Wood.

Collectors would be thrilled that so much stuff is just going for a price of USD 29.00. Interested? Click here for details.
