There's Nothing Sneaky About Snake Eater 3D's 2011 Release

Posted by Trevor Chan

Metal Gear Solid assigned with a 3DS release this year

In Hideo Kojima's latest podcast, a new segment sees the Metal Gear series creator simply answering "Yes" or "No" to various rumours that are currently floating about, one of which pertains to the release of Metal Gear Solid: Snake Eater 3D.

One of the rumours that Kojima's co-host read out: "MGS 3DS will go on sale by the end of 2011" was met with a "Yes" from Kojima.

It was last July when Kojima clarified what the 3DS instalment is all about, explaining that Snake Eater 3D should be viewed as a revisit to Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater on the PlayStation 2. Exactly how different the final product will be to the game it's based on is unclear, but Kojima stated that a cooperative mode was being looked into. He admitted that getting the game ready in time for the 3DS's launch would be a difficult task, but getting the game out within the system's first year on the market was a more important goal.

Earlier in the month, MCV's source claimed that Konami is aiming for a European release this November, so hopefully we're looking at a worldwide launch by the end of the year. Whatever the scenario, most of it should be cleared up at E3.

I can't believe E3 is so close again. It doesn't feel like it's been a year.

I've just put my Nintendo 3DS on eBay UK (item number 180673334552), so I will not be playing this or any other game throughout the handheld's life cycle. I just hope Project Cafe delivers, not long until E3.

"This will be my first MGS game."
:D And boy will it be a great one for ya'! MGS3 is considered one of the best titles in the MGS series... it often competes with MGS1 as being the best of the series. (each title has differing fans)

I, personally, love MGS3 the most out of the entire series. LOVED the boss battles and cinematics. :D

I think I'm the only one in the world that favors MGS2 over the others. In fact, I'd put MGS1 at the bottom.

The complaints over Raiden in MGS2 are silly. Yeah, Snake is badass. Yeah, we all want to be Snake. But, come on...the story was awesome (if not often convoluted) and the gameplay was stellar.

D: But Raiden's so whiny...
I did like fighting alongside Snake though. And MGS2 was my first MGS, so I got no hate towards it. I just say MGS3's the best. :P

Konami's E3 press conference is actually on June 2nd, not June 6-9 like the other companies. You should be able to catch it live June 2nd on the web. It's guaranteed to be chock full of Snake love, meaning Snake Eater 3DS gameplay, and a couple secret announcements. Snake? Snake?? Snaaaaaaaake?????

SSame 3DS is awesome :D still don't see why a person who bought it would sell it so soon. I mean, you could have tried it out at GS first y'know.

Having played & finished all 4 MGS games, I can say without a doubt that Snake Eater was easily the best of the bunch.
Snake Eater has the perfect balance of stealth, action, and story. It also doesnt let the cut scenes drag on too long, which was a HUGE plus for me. I also found the story much easier to follow than other MGS games. And the boss battles are fantastic! Fun & epic, without any frustration:)
Sorry to carry on so much, but as you can tell I'm definetly excited for this!!!

@17 I doubt it the sequels to Snake Eater are T so I dont see why this one would be different

Well, at least we know it's still in development.

On a semi-unrelated note, Kojima is probably one of the most stylish Japanese game designers I've ever seen. Just look at those duds. :D

@Otaku the original was M so if this is the same thing with some new modes and little new things in the story it could be rated M.
Either way can't wait for this it's going to ROCK!
