Metal Gear Solid: Snake Eater is getting a 3D makeover early this year, and so is the hardware that will run it. Over the holiday break, Metal Gear creator Hideo Kojima released a teaser picture of a new version of the 3DS featuring an embossed snake skin pattern on the lid.

Kojima posted this picture of the system to Twitter.

Kojima posted the picture to his Twitter account, along with a note calling the snake skin hardware an industry first. He also noted that more information about the system, including pricing, should be revealed January 20.

Set for release March 8 in Japan and sometime in the first quarter in North America, Metal Gear Solid: Snake Eater 3D is a port of the PlayStation 2 stealth game with tweaks designed to take advantage of the 3DS hardware. These include 3D visuals, as well as touch pad and camera support.

@HeeroYuy0905 No, it's mock embossed, not that it will make any difference to some at that wacky organisation.

I bet the fools at PETA are lying in wait... I doubt we'll see this on Western shores.
