FOX Engine Bento took little time

Hideo Kojima posted that the recently released image of Big Boss holding the 25th Anniversary bento took very little time to produce using the FOX engine. For the FOX Engine Bento, the image was placed over the normal map in around 2 hours. He joked that perhaps he’d use the bento as an item in his game. He also seemed excited by the technology despite some of the 10,000 retweets suggesting it was a waste of technology.

He said, “You may say it is waste of technology but this quality can be done in 2 hours after 3D scanning the real bento over FOX Engine.”

Here are the before and after images again:
