Apple iPhone Receiving iDROID Case Inspired by ‘Metal Gear Solid V’


After an early reveal by game designer and famed Metal Gear Solid video game franchise director, Hideo Kojima, the full details and specs have been revealed for Sentinel’s special iDROID case for Apple’s iPhone. The new case that the Apple iPhone is receiving is inspired by the iDROID gadget in Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes. Sentinel fully unveiled their special iDROID case for the iPhone at the Miyazaki Model Exhibition in Japan earlier this week.

In Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes, the game’s protagonist, Snake, uses a device called the iDROID for his mission. The special case from Sentinel features a working flashlight and detachable antenna part that can double as a stylus pen. The case also features a volume control switch to turn the volume “On” or “Off.” Once you download the free Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes mobile app, now available at the iTunes App Store, you will be able to create an iDROID virtual map for the game. This will essentially give users a virtually perfect replica of the game’s iDROID device. Even better, the app can be synced up with the actual game, which is currently available on PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox, and Xbox One.

According to Hideo Kojima and the website Metal Gear Solid Aimgehess, the case also has a retractable piece which will be able to protect the camera lens and flash bulb of the iPhone when they are not in use. In addition to the volume controls, the case also allows for access to the sleep button. It is also compatible with the iPhone 5 or iPhone 5S. In terms of releasing and distribution, the case will be released in Japan in October of this year. The iDROID case is expected to be sold for the suggested price of 7,500 yen (which comes out to about $73 in the US). Unfortunately, details on a North American release do not appear to be available, so the case might only be available via direct importing or online websites that import products from Japan.

Besides the Apple iPhone receiving an iDROID case inspired by Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes, Japanese toy maker and manufacturer Sentinel is producing other high-end Apple iPhone cases based off of licensed properties. Sentinel is also releasing a special case for Apple’s iPhone 5/5S that is modeled after the sword grips for the 3D maneuver gear used by the soldiers in the popular anime and manga series Attack on Titan.

The Metal Gear Solid franchise has been a fan favorite among gamers for many years. Through it’s deep storytelling, geopolitical subtext, complex characters, as well as gameplay that becomes more and more groundbreaking with each new installment, the franchise continues to be a winner with fans and critics alike. The next game in the series, Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, will likely be released next year. So the Apple iPhone receiving an iDROID case inspired by Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes before the release of Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain appears to be quite advantageous for the Metal Gear Solid faithful. Now Metal Gear Solid publisher Konami needs to develop a Metal Gear Solid app that features all the classic sound effects and catchphrases of the franchise.

    Hey, how’s it going?

    Did you hear that the powers that run this world want to put a RFID microchip in our body? It will contain not only our bank accounts but our personal information, making us total slaves to the elite. This will cause us to lose even more of our privacy.

    Did you know that this RFID microchip matches perfectly with the Mark of the Beast in the Bible, more specifically Revelation 13:16-18?

    “He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name…”

    Referring to the last days, this could only be speaking of a cashless society, which we have yet to see, but are heading towards. Otherwise, we could still buy or sell without the mark amongst others if physical money was still currency. It’s amazing that the Bible foretold a cashless society!

    Did you also hear that the Jewish people are in the process of bringing about the Third Temple prophesied in the Bible by the prophet Daniel, Jesus, and Apostle Paul? They deny Jesus as their Messiah and say their Messiah will be revealed to rule the whole world under a one world religion. They are not even hiding this information, but are actually promoting it. You can view videos about this on YouTube.

    When Donald Trump made Jerusalem captial of Israel in late December 2017, the Jewish people said this was a big step for them to build this Third Temple. They even printed a Temple coin with president Trump’s face on the front with king Cyrus'(the man who built the Second Temple in the Bible) face behind him. On the back of the coin is an image of the Third Temple. They are selling these coins to raise money to build the Temple.

    People have been saying for many years that the end is near, but we needed not only the Third Temple, but also the technology for there to be a cashless society for the Mark of the Beast to be a reality.

    There is much more to know, please visit http://WWW.BIBLEFREEDOM.COM to see all the proof!

    According to my observation, after a in foreclosure home is bought at a bidding, it is common for that borrower to be able to still have any remaining unpaid debt on the mortgage loan. There are many loan merchants who try to have all service fees and liens cleared by the upcoming buyer. Having said that, depending on particular programs, rules, and state legal guidelines there may be quite a few loans that are not easily handled through the switch of personal loans. Therefore, the obligation still rests on the lender that has received his or her property in foreclosure. Thanks for sharing your notions on this website.
