At the latest PlayStation Showcase extravaganza hosted by Sony, the long-whispered Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater overhaul was finally confirmed, together with the announcement of the Metal Gear Solid Master Collection Vol. 1 assortment. While rumours of these Metal Gear Solid offerings had been floating around for a while, fans can now relish in the official endorsement.
Noteworthy for being the chronologically earliest in the Metal Gear Solid saga, Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater, although being the third instalment numerically, is a logical commencement if Konami’s intention is to breathe fresh life into Hideo Kojima’s iconic creations rather than venture into developing completely new Metal Gear Solid adventures. The extent of alterations in the Metal Gear Solid 3 remoulding remains ambiguous, as the debut trailer gave away scant specifics.
Inside the Announcement: What to Expect from the Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater Remake
The computer-generated preview of the Metal Gear Solid 3 reboot exhibited Naked Snake stealthily navigating the jungle but didn’t divulge much beyond the fact that it’s a work in progress for the PS5. Perhaps more electrifying for the ardent followers than the validation of the Metal Gear Solid 3 reconstruction is the declaration of Metal Gear Solid Master Collection Vol. 1, which will enable aficionados of the franchise to revisit the timeless Metal Gear Solid games on contemporary consoles.
Whilst the date for the release of the Metal Gear Solid 3 facelift remains uncertain, it has been established that the Metal Gear Solid Master Collection Vol. 1 compendium will be launched in Autumn 2023. This compilation will feature the original Metal Gear Solid game, Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty, and the pristine version of Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater. The revelation, which was made during the PlayStation Showcase, assures fans that the PS5 will be a platform for the collection, yet insiders have hinted that it may also grace other platforms such as PC and Xbox.
The development of both Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater and Metal Gear Solid Master Collection Vol. 1 is currently underway.
