The First Three MGS Titles Are Getting Rereleased As Well
One of the most exciting things that was announced yesterday at the 2023 PlayStation Showcase was Metal Gear Solid Delta: Snake Eater, which will be a from the ground up remake of Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater. In addition, the original first three Metal Gear Solid titles will be getting rereleased with Metal Gear and Metal Gear 2: Solid Snake included as well, released as the Metal Gear Solid Master Collection Volume 1. The rerelease of the originals has so far only been announced for PlayStation 5, but Metal Gear Solid Delta: Snake Eater will be coming to PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X and S, and Steam.
Kept You Waiting, Huh?
It had been over ten years since we have gotten any sort of rerelease of the older Metal Gear games. Metal Gear Solid 5 is even creeping up on ten years, and we don’t need to talk about Metal Gear Survive or that Pachinko game. People would have to resort to their PlayStation 3’s if they wanted to get the full Metal Gear experience. But now, in 2023, that doesn’t seem to be as big of an issue as the Metal Gear Solid Master Collection Volume 1 will be coming to PlayStation 5 this Fall.
Though it’s so far a PS5 exclusive, it seems inevitable that it will come to other platforms, given how big of a rerelease this is. It also says it’s “Volume 1” so maybe we’ll be getting Peace Walker and possibly even Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots, which has been stuck on PS3, in a future volume.
It Gets Better
As for Metal Gear Solid Delta: Snake Eater, it seems to be a from the ground up remake in the same vein as the Resident Evil remakes and Konami’s own upcoming Silent Hill 2 remake. From the looks of the photos that we’ve provided from Konami’s website, the graphics seem to have gotten a big overall but still manage to retain a lot of the original game’s look. Fans were worried that the original cast might not be returning, but Konami confirmed that they would be. David Hayter will finally be returning to the series as Snake as he was left out of Metal Gear Solid 5 with Kiefer Sutherland taking over.
Metal Gear Solid Master Collection Volume 1 will be released this Fall on PlayStation 5. Metal Gear Solid Delta: Snake Eater has yet to get a release date and will be coming to PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X and S, and Steam.
