For those of you who've played Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, you'll no doubt be aware of Snake's spiffy robotic arm thingy.

It can detach, fly around and knock people and basically makes everyone's favourite one-eyed mercenary look like an even bigger badass. Considering how Konami's reputation has essentially gone through the floor - they publicly and bitterly fell out with Hideo Kojima - they're in need of a bit of good publicity.

James Young, a 25-year old fan of Metal Gear Solid, is getting fitted with a Venom Snake-inspired prosthetic arm that Konami are helping to build and fit. James, who lost his arm and leg due to a train accident, has been a lifelong fan of the series and was overwhelmed when Konami got in touch.

As the project's blurb suggests, the plan is to "create a bespoke prosthetic limb for an amputee gamer, inspired by the world of Metal Gear Solid, using cutting edge and innovative technologies."

The Phantom Limb Project is being put together for a documentary and will track the development of James' limb and, hopefully, his successful career as an international mercenary who's out for vengeance.

Maybe not the second part.
