Twin Snakes to come bundled
Konami to offer gamers in Japan two ways to buy Metal Gear; as a stand-alone game or bundled with a limited-edition Cube.
TOKYO--It's not as if Japanese gamers will need much of an incentive this March when Metal Gear: The Twin Snakes is released, but Konami is taking no chances. Today, the company said it would release the title in a limited-edition bundle, which will see the game paired with a silver Game Cube (with a Fox-Hound logo on its top). A matching controller is included in the package. In addition, the package will come with a disc that contains special visuals of the game and a GameCube port of the Famicom edition of Metal Gear. A collectors booklet will also be included.
The bundle is scheduled for release simultaneously with the stand-alone game on March 11 (in Japan). The bundle will retail for 21,000 yen ($198) while the game will go for 6,980 yen ($65.80).
