The Metal Gear Solid 3 Snake Eater remake announced
Konami announced the official release of Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater during the PlayStation Showcase.
Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater was originally released for the PS2 in 2004, and is regarded by many as the best installment in Hideo’s action-stealth franchise. It’s a pity that Kojima is not involved with this remake but that’s a discussion for another day.
The original MGS3 improved its predecessor almost in every way. It introduced a range of camouflages to help you hide from your enemies in the jungles of Tajikistan, an improved CQC, and more. This modern remake is a good game that will be made even better.
“We’re working on Metal Gear Solid D: Snake Eater, to make it a faithful reproduction of the original game and story design while also evolving gameplay and adding stunning visuals for a seamless experience,” stated Konami in a press release.
When Konami released the Silent Hill II remake it seemed odd they had skipped over the first Silent Hill. We know that Silent Hill: Shattered Memories was remade on the PS2, PSP, and Wii, but it’s not a true Silent Hill remake. Most of us would agree to the fact that we want to see a remake of the original Silent Hill game.
It makes sense to remake Metal Gear Solid 3 in this generation because the prequel is set in 1964, during the Cold War.
Theoretically, since Metal Gear Solid HTML3 took place 31 years prior to Metal Gear Solid we may see a remake of the original. The title is also unique in that there’s no ‘3’, but instead a triangle. Could the absence of a numerical identifier that Konami considers a new MGS1? Time will tell.
We’re also expecting a Metal Gear Solid Master Collection Volume.1which will include Metal Gear Solid 1, Metal Gear Solid 2and Metal Gear Solid 3in August. It’s safe to say that, as this is Vol.1, there will likely be more collections in the future. Konami has not announced the exact platform, but said that this game will be on “the latest platforms”.
