It's not often we get to say nice things about Konami these days, but the game company has teamed up with renowned prosthetic artist Sophie De Oliviera Barata to develop a Metal Gear Solid inspired prosthetic arm for James Young, a 25 year old fan who lost his arm in a train accident in 2012. 

The arm will be visually inspired by the one featured in Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, and will be multi-functional to fit James' needs. Hopefully he'll be able to use it to play MGSV.

The New Yorker published a piece on the reasons for Hideo Kojima's departure from Konami, and now the game company is denying he's even gone. According to Konami, Kojima is just taking a long vacation now that Metal Gear Solid V is done. On a technicality, they could be correct; supposedly, Kojima's contract with Konami goes through December, so he could still be an employee there if his contract isn't broken.

Konami also claims no knowledge of the photo above, which is supposedly his going away party that took place on October 9th.
