Gorgeous Metal Gear Solid 3 Slot Machine Continues to Break Hearts
Snake, Ocelot, and company are all here.
As was the case last time, it continues to be bizarrely upsetting. Moments from Snake Eater like the showdown with Ocelot have been remastered using the Fox engine (which powers Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain). This makes it look like a brand-new game--the quality of its visuals are far beyond what was included in the Metal Gear Solid HD Collection--only this is for what amounts to a casino game release in Japan, not a Snake Eater remaster.
More specifically, this is a pachislot machine, which is essentially a slot machine. It's set for release in Japan on October 17 and will feature a 32-inch HD screen for displaying the footage seen in the new trailer.
You can see some of these units in action below, which were being checked out by media members in Japan today.
A new entry in the Metal Gear series (or any further remasters) have not yet been announced. Konami has said discussions have taken place, but it's unclear what future entries will look like with series creator Hideo Kojima departing after the completion of The Phantom Pain.
