Japanese gamers will get Metal Gear Solid: Snake Eater 3D on March 8, but North American fans can pick the title up earlier. Today, Konami announced Metal Gear Solid: Snake Eater 3D will arrive in North America on February 21, with a European debut scheduled for March 8.

In addition to announcing North American and European release dates for the game, Konami also confirmed that the title will be compatible with the 3DS Circle Pad Pro accessory.

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.

[CORRECTION] The original version of this story reported the European date as the North American date. The actual North American release date for Metal Gear Solid: Snake Eater 3D is February 21. GameSpot regrets the error.

there's always a 3d movie in the theatres, stores now have blu ray sections of just 3d movies, there's 3d games, both on console and handheld, there's 3d phones and soon to be 3d networks. face it, 3d is here to stay, so take your baseless "fad" argument somewhere else.

I already have the HD Collection, so I won't be getting this, but I hope it sells well. They should have remade Twin Snakes instead.

I've purchased like 5 copies of MGS3, I still own two (Subsistence on PS2 and the HD version on HD Collection.) and I still plan on buying this. I think I like Metal Gear too much.

This game actually seems like a total rip off. It actually costs more than the MGS HD collection, which has the entire MGS 3 game on the disc as well as two other full games, and doesn't even have the online multiplayer from Subsistence? And that's to say nothing of the gimped controls. Such a terrible deal.

Great... First you leave out MGS in the HD pack. Now you are releasing the worst of the series for the 4th time in the last 7 years. (plus a vita version is coming right?) Castlevania has been kojima's only redeeming contribution since MGS 4 (which wasn't as good as the fist one, because you have to play as an old fart)

This 3D fad really needs to die. The technology is over 50 years old.

I already have both Snake Eater and Subsistence for PS2, and the MGS HD Collection, so no go for me. Also, MGS3 is my least favourite in the series.

Good for those with a 3DS, personally not interested since I'm getting the HD collection on PS3. Anyway, good to hear some good news about the series after "Rising" went downhill...
