VIZ Media’s Haikasoru imprint is bringing North American Metal Gear Solid fans a new way to enjoy the series.

A novel based on Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots will hit stores soon. This story was penned by famed Japanese sci-fi author Keikaku (Project) Itoh and is being brought over to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the franchise. Metal Gear Solid: Guns of the Patriots also includes an essay from Hideo Kojima, creator of the video game series.

Of course, the novel follows Solid Snake, a soldier who is a member of a nanotech network called the Sons of the Patriots. Snake is close to succumbing to the FOXDIE virus, which has turned him into a “walking biological weapon.” When Snake goes to the Sons of the Patriots for help, he learns that his enemy, Liquid Ocelot, has hacked the system. If the person controlling SOP controls the world, then it’s up to Snake to stop Liquid’s scheme.

You’ll be able to pick this up on June 19th for $15.99 U.S. / $18.99 CAN. If you prefer eBooks, there will be a digital version available for the Kindle, Nook, Sony Reader, and Apple’s iBook Store.
