Our Perceptions of 3DS Metal Gear Further Solidify

May not be what we saw at E3

The latest Kojima Productions podcast revealed more detail regarding the upcoming 3DS Metal Gear title. It seems that the publishers are paying attention to the feedback from E3 in shaping the new release and in deciding whether the series comes to the potent portable at all. Judging by the buzz, it seems quite likely that it will – though we'll still have to wait and see. Still, the broadcast mentioned that they were satisfied with the comments that they received.

The show's host, Sean Eyestone, also commented on the fact that what we've seen is simply a tech demo and may not resemble the final product.

Of course, I think we talked about the fact that it is a sample. So you know, not saying that we won’t bring it out in the future or anything like that. We can’t say one way or the other whether or not something like that will come out on the 3DS at this point. But what we did show at E3 was a sample of what we could do with the 3DS.

Also revealed in the podcast were that Konami was pleased with the lighting and shading in the demo, that it was based on Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater, and that the phrase "Naked Snake" used throughout refers to the naked eye 3D visuals.
