Sony Announces Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater Remake [PlayStation Showcase]
After many rumors, Sony has officially announced Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater Remake. The reveal dropped during today’s PlayStation Showcase stream which announced the title is coming to PlayStation 5 via a cinematic teaser that displayed the impressive power of the PS5 with a danger-filled jungle featuring wildlife dominating one another and claiming their spot on top of the food chain as the camera pans to the very familiar face of Naked Snake.
The trailer description reads:
Discover the origin story of iconic military operative Snake and begin to unravel the plot of the legendary Metal Gear series. Metal Gear Solid Delta: Snake Eater brings unprecedented new graphics, immersive stealth action gameplay and sounds to its riveting story as players once again return to the world of Metal Gear.
The game played a pivotal role in shaping the Metal Gear franchise serving as a prequel and delivering players not only the foundation for Metal Gear but also the origin of Big Boss. The game was released 19 years ago and delivered a 1970s story that was originally MGS 3 but it seems as if Konami is opting to forgo the “3” and instead revealing a triangle-shaped logo.
Even without gameplay, the mere existence of the remake has to have both longtime and new fans absolutely ecstatic and this will be a very welcome revisit for some fans to a game that took up countless hours of our time and could usher in a new generation of fans as they experience a top-tier title utilizing the full power of this generation’s consoles.
Metal Gear Solid 1, 2, and 3 Coming to PlayStation 5
Also announced alongside the Snake Eater Remake was the equally exciting announcement that the first three Metal Gear Solid games will also be coming to PlayStation 5. The three titles will arrive in Autumn 2023 in a package titled Metal Gear Solid Master Collection Volume 1. With that in mind, we can surely expect more volumes that will likely port over more titles in the Metal Gear franchise.
No official release date was announced for the Snake Eater Remake but you can expect to get your hands on the Metal Gear Solid Master Collection Vol. 1 this Autumn.
