In a surprising twist, Metal Gear Solid: Master Collection Vol. 1 is set to feature five games rather than the three initially revealed. Following the setback with Metal Gear Survive, Konami is pulling out all the stops to rejuvenate the Metal Gear franchise. The recent PlayStation Showcase saw Konami making a strong statement, signaling a bold revival for the Metal Gear Solid series.
Classic Titles in the MGS Master Collection Vol. 1
Kicking off the revival, the Metal Gear Solid series is set to return with Metal Gear Solid Delta: Snake Eater, a comprehensive remake of Metal Gear Solid 3. This game is currently under development for PC, PS5, and Xbox Series X. The timeline for the release of Metal Gear Solid Delta: Snake Eater remains uncertain, but in the interim, fans will be treated to other classic titles from the Metal Gear Solid series.
Announced side-by-side with Metal Gear Solid Delta: Snake Eater at the PlayStation Showcase, the Metal Gear Solid: Master Collection Vol. 1 initially confirmed the inclusion of Metal Gear Solid, Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty, and Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater. However, the PlayStation Store listing for the collection has now confirmed the inclusion of Metal Gear and Metal Gear 2: Solid Snake, expanding the collection from three to five games.
Metal Gear Solid Collection Games Now Include:
- Metal Gear
- Metal Gear 2: Solid Snake
- Metal Gear Solid
- Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty
- Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater
There’s no doubt that Metal Gear Solid fans will welcome the chance to delve back into these classic games on contemporary platforms. However, Konami has yet to shed light on the specific platforms the collection will launch on. While it’s anticipated that Metal Gear Solid: Master Collection Vol. 1 will be a multi-platform release, its confirmed launch platform, as of now, is the PlayStation 5. Hopefully, more details will emerge soon.
Even though some fans may yearn for a fresh instalment in the series, others will be thrilled to see Konami resurrect the Metal Gear Solid franchise through this collection and the Snake Eater remake. If these releases perform well, it could potentially trigger a full-scale revival for Metal Gear. Surprisingly leading to the production of an entirely new game. However, there’s a sense of apprehension about how such a game would fare without the creative vision of franchise founder Hideo Kojima.
