Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater remake ‘Delta’ confirmed for PS5
Sony has announced Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater remaster during the PlayStation Showcase.
In a very brief teaser trailer during the live stream on May 24, Sony revealed the revamping of the Kojima Productions game, which first arrived on the PS2 nearly 20-years ago in 2004.
The game will be marketed at Metal Gear Solid Delta (hence the green triangle) and the release will see the return of the franchise following a five year hiatus following Metal Gear Survive which arrived all the way back in 2018.
Reports prior to the PlayStation Showcase had tipped the reveal, but also suggested it would be a multi-platform release rather than a PlayStation exclusive. We’ll have to wait and see on that front.
UPDATE: After the event the publisher Konami confirmed the game would also be available on Xbox Series S/X and on PC via Steam.
The trailer for the game only offers a brief look at the game’s legendary protagonist at the end of a sequence embodying the food chain from ant to giant terrifying river monster of some kind. The trailer ends showing Snake appearing from the shadows as the game’s theme tune plays in the back ground.
The game will be accompanied by the release of the Metal Gear Solid: Master Collection Vol. 1, which features the first three games. Launch is planned for this autumn. You can see the reveal trailer below, but there’s no actual gameplay footage just yet.
In a post on the teaser site, the description reads: “The story that tells the beginning of the epic saga. It covers the events of both Virtuous Mission and Operation Snake Eater, detailing how the man code-named Naked Snake earned the title of Big Boss. While previous games in the Metal Gear series took place in more urban settings and involved infiltrating buildings, this game is set in an unforgiving jungle. In addition to hiding in the shadows, players can use uniforms and face paint as camouflage to blend in with their surroundings. This gameplay system was expanded upon in Metal Gear Solid 4. An edition boasting the ultimate survival experience called “Subsistence” was released later. This title was the fifth game released in the official history of the Metal Gear franchise.”
