Metal Gear Solid 3 Snake Eater Remake, Metal Gear Solid Collection Revealed

Welcome to the jungle, we've got fun and Naked Snake.


During the PlayStation Showcase earlier today, Konami confirmed the long-rumored remake of Metal Gear Solid 3, which is now called Metal Gear Solid Delta: Snake Eater.

The trailer started with a close-up of ants crawling toward a dead frog, which was then taken by a bird. Eventually, the bird lands on a log, where it is attacked by snakes and crocodiles. The camera then pans away from the fracas to a tree in the background, where Naked Snake emerges from the water. A press release confirms the "original voice characters" will star in the game, which should mean the return of David Hayter as Snake.

In addition, at the end of the trailer, a teaser screen for the Metal Gear Solid Master Collection Volume 1 appeared on the screen, which confirms Metal Gear Solid, MGS2: Sons of Liberty, and MGS 3: Snake Eater will be coming to PlayStation 5 in Fall 2023. No specific date was provided.

Konami has released a statement on the game's official website, which states the team is "working hard" to make Snake Eater a "faithful recreation of the original story and game design, while evolving the gameplay with stunning visuals and a seamless user experience." The statement also confirms that the MGS Master Collection will not only commemorate the franchise's 35th anniversary, but that it will "allow fans to play the games as they were, as first released on the latest platforms."

Reports of a Metal Gear Solid 3 remake began to intensify in February this year, with rumors that Konami was planning to have a big presence at E3. After E3 was canceled, new rumors claimed that the Metal Gear Solid 3 remake would first be shown off at the PlayStation Showcase, but that the game wouldn't be exclusive to that platform. In addition to the rumored Snake Eater remake, Konami is said to be working on a new Castlevania title.

Metal Gear Solid 3 is generally considered to be one of the best games in the series, as it featured inventive boss fights, innovative survival mechanics for its time, and sharp writing that told the origin story of Big Boss. The Subsistence version of the game significantly improved and fine-tuned the experience, turning it into an unmissable showcase of stealth, espionage, and cunning tactics.

Metal Gear Solid Delta: Snake Eater will launch for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC.
