Metal Gear Solid: The Twin Snakes Update

Konami shows off a new trailer for its upcoming GameCube game.


Metal Gear Solid: The Twin Snakes

At a press event today, Konami showed off a new trailer for Metal Gear Solid: The Twin Snakes, the upcoming GameCube game based on the original Metal Gear Solid for the PlayStation. The lengthy clip differed dramatically from the first trailer shown at E3 which featured quick cuts and rather dark environments interspersed with a great deal of text.

The new trailer focused exclusively on gameplay and showed off the enhancements and tweaks that Konami, Silicon Knights, and Nintendo have been working on. The montage of footage was made up of a wealth of clips from different parts of the game that highlighted the new camera angles and improved graphical effects that the team will implement in Twin Snakes.

The framerate inconsistency that we saw at E3 was still apparent in a few sequences, but Silicon Knight's Denis Dyack, who was on hand to speak about the game, noted that optimization was being done to ensure a smooth framerate. He also stated that the game will ship on two discs and that it will feature Dolby Pro Logic II support. The enhanced audio should highlight the voice acting in the game which was completely re-recorded for the game. While extra game content such as the VR missions or Metal Gear Solid 2 won't be included in the game, despite rumors to the contrary, Dyack did mention the game would feature a comparable number of hidden features as the original game to reward diligent players.

Metal Gear Solid: The Twin Snakes is currently scheduled to ship this winter for the GameCube. We'll have more on the game shortly.
