Konami sets release date for 3DS update to acclaimed PS2 espionage title; Western launch TBA.
Nintendo had originally planned for Metal Gear Solid: Snake Eater 3D to help launch the 3DS this year, but Konami had other plans. At this year's Tokyo Game Show, Hideo Kojima confirmed that the 3D update to the acclaimed PlayStation 2 title would arrive early in 2012. Now, Kojima has narrowed that release date to March 8 in Japan, according to Famitsu.
More than just a port of the PS2 classic, MGS: Snake Eater 3D includes a number of enhancements that cater to the 3DS's new technology. These include, of course, 3D visuals, which play up the game's jungle atmosphere, as well as touch pad and camera support.
Set in the 1960s, Snake Eater plays on the tensions between the US and Soviet Union during the Cold War. The story follows Naked Snake as he sets out to retrieve a kidnapped weapons designer and in the process destroy an experimental superweapon.
A Konami representative told GameSpot that there was nothing to announce by way of a North American release date at this time. For more information, check out GameSpot's previous coverage of Snake Eater 3D.
I love the MGS series to death, but does this game really need to be published for the 4th time? We've got the original release, the director's cut (Subsistence) the MGS HD Collection version and now this? Game companies have gotten lazy. I love revisiting old and beloved games but how bout you spend less time rehashing and already stand-alone classic and spend more time working on the current MGS or maybe a new IP?
I'm so sorry, I was really, I mean REALLY excited about this. But now I can have ALL main MGS on my ps3, since I already have MGS 4, and it'll be for almost the same price. Sorry, it's not that I wouldn't like to play it on the 3DS, it's juat that I don't have all that money to buy it twice. and 4 games instead of just one sounds like a really good deal.
not being rude or anything but ill doubt this will sell well....it just MGS3 with a little steroids...... well MGSHD is a better deal
Unless they add something huge to this port, I won't be getting it. Playing MGS3 in 60fps from the HD Collection is awesome.
@Sgthombre - I bought one on release day because i thought this MGS3D and RE: Revalations and OoT would be out soon. Now it's almost a year later and only one of those has come out.
Well now that I have the HD collection I dont need this anymore. So there goes one of the reasons I bought my 3DS, now I just have to wait for RE: Revalations and that will be that
This is taking forever. This is a title that got me excited about the 3DS... and it's still not out...
At least 3DS owners will experience this game. Might snag this one when I get my hands on my own 3DS.
So, 3D, touchpad and camera support is worth $40 to replay this game? Nintendo doesn't even advertise the 3D anymore. The collection on PS360 and Vita seems like so much better deals if you want to replay this games. HD beats a small 3D "sweet spot" that doesn't really do anything everytime, IMO.
I originally was planning to get a 3DS just for this game(and others new games like mario land) but after playing MGS3 on 360 at 60fps and all of its HD glory, I lost interest on this game. Still it will awesome game for those who hasn't played, it will be a blast. Be careful though, you'll be shedding manly tears :P
please let there not be a special 3DS for this because I will be so upset because I totally just bought one this weekend! Adding this to my must have list now!!
