Gearing up for the highly anticipated Metal Gear Solid 2: Substance, Konami has released a new Metal Gear game of sorts. “The Document of Metal Gear Solid 2” is an amazingly in depth DVD, that not only takes you through the making and design of the game, but also gives you a taste of Substance’s new action with 5 VR missions that will be featured in the new suped-up re-release. But, before you get your hands on it, discover the game’s secrets in this exclusive behind the scenes look that creator Hideo Kojima dedicates to ‘true fans of MGS2, game creators, and budding game creators’.

For years movie buffs have had the chance to get a look behind the scenes of their favorite movie through TV documentaries and specials, as well as special edition DVDs. It’s your turn now. Once you get past the disc’s main menu you will be presented with more declassified information on the MGS2 project than you could ever imagine. Starting with interactive character models, to joining the MGS2 team through video in research and even celebrations, you may find yourself losing track of the time even before you realize you haven’t tried the VR training mode yet!

Over 3 years of hard work and ingenuity plays out before your eyes, offering you a chance to take a short film class, through the disc’s scene-by-scene script and original storyboards, or even programming 101 with a breakdown of the PS2’s system makeup. The disc contains a virtual treasure trove of art and music as well, with an entire selection of exclusive sketches, background models, and sound designs.

After you’ve downloaded all the information to your brain on what it takes to make a multimillion dollar, multi-award winning, best selling videogame, it’s time to have fun!

Well, you could drive there instead, but if you want to take your training seriously, why not go for a jog?
