The screens are from this month’s Famitsu, hence the tiny size. The PlayStation exclusive are a homage to the original PS1 games and promises to “references key events”. How Psycho Mantis will fit in will be interesting, that definitely looks like the original character model up there. Here’s previous Konami’s press release info explaining the content:

“Users will be able to access a unique ‘MGS1 Deja-Vu’ mission that references key events from the original PSOne® classic, METAL GEAR SOLID. The exclusive mission tasks the user with reproducing famous scenes from the original game. As players recreate the iconic moments, a flashback system reproduces the original graphical style of the original PSOne® game – complete with greatly reduced ‘vintage’ polygon count – and introduces familiar enemies and weather conditions for added authenticity.”

Konami recently announced a price drop for the retail PS4 version of Ground Zeroes bringing it down to £29.99. There’s also been more info on the iDROID companion app which will let you build a Mother Base for use in MGS 5 The Phantom Pain.

Thanks DualShockers.
