During PlayStation's digital showcase earlier today, Konami announced the return of the Metal Gear Solid series.
After ongoing rumours, the Japanese company confirmed a remake of the third game. While the platforms for this title have already been revealed (it's coming to PlayStation, Xbox and PC), Konami also announced the Metal Gear Solid Master Collection Vol. 1, arriving in Autumn 2023.
It will feature HD remasters of the first, second, and third games - with more games and volumes seemingly on the way. As highlighted by our friends at Push Square, MGS2 and MGS3 are the same PS3 remasters taken from the HD collection release back in 2011.
Apart from PlayStation, no other platforms have been confirmed just yet, but in a message from the development team on the official teaser website, it's mentioned how this 35th anniversary collection will be coming to the "latest platforms".
"Currently, the development team are working together to create an environment where fans can experience and enjoy the METAL GEAR series on the latest platforms.
"...we will deliver the METAL GEAR SOLID: MASTER COLLECTION series, the most complete compilation that celebrates the 35th anniversary of the series. The METAL GEAR SOLID: MASTER COLLECTION allows fans to play the games as they were, as first released on the latest platforms."
While there's no mention of a Nintendo release, many Switch fans on social media are already getting their hopes up. If the Master Collection is based on the older HD remasters, this shouldn't be a problem to get it up and running on the Switch. Konami has also released a lot of other collections on the hybrid platform in recent years.
Nintendo's systems have a long history with Metal Gear Solid games - with certain entries released on platforms like the GameCube and more recent platforms such as the 3DS. Snake has also been featured as a character in Nintendo's popular fighting series Super Smash Bros. over the years.
Would you like to see this Metal Gear Solid: Master Collection released on Switch? Comment below.
I have never played anything in this series and I would love to start. So I'm really hoping they do arrive on switch 🙏
Sadly, I don’t think they will come to switch, nor the remake. I would very much like them to, however. I have never played a Metal Gear title. I’m gonna be double disappointed if they snub the PS4 as well, I only own that and a switch.
I wouldn't worry about this not coming to Switch at this time. As far as I know this is just volume 1, I would wait until they had volume 2 ready too before they decided to bring it to Switch. Also it's close to that time when Nintendo is preparing another Direct soon, the collection may likely had been save for that direct announcement. Also the next Nintendo console may be around the corner too and the chance of these releasing for that instead of Switch is likely as well. In other words it's no big deal and the Metal Gear Solid series is now dead anyways so even if they won't release for Nintendo now, they still got next gen to do so anyways.
I'm 99% sure switch will get cucked.
Would love to see these come to Switch. Haven’t played one of these games since like the PS2 days.
No reason they shouldn't come to Switch if "latest platforms" are mentioned. I'll definitely buy the collection if it is on Switch.
@TheBigBlue the remake obviously won’t be on Switch but this collection has a higher chance of being on Switch. The Castlevania Collections made it on Switch.
I very much want the collection to come to the Switch. With Twin Snakes included would be even better.
And seeing as this is vol 1, we might finally see MGS4 make its way off the PS3.
MGS1 (or the ps1 mgs) is one of my best games of all time, amazing memories. Not sure I want to play it again and risk tampering with my memories?
@locky-mavo I'm honestly happy that they chose the original Metal Gear Solid over Twin Snakes (I hate the over the top scenes from that version) but I wouldn't mind if they include it too.
On another note I'm not sure why some people think that the collection is unlikely to happen on Switch. I think that it has a good chance, even if it's released later as usual.
It's my favourite franchise, so I'm just happy to see more of it. Getting Peace Walker on a second collection would be fantastic.
Really should've gone for Twin Snakes over the original-original but maybe that'll be a Volume 2 thing.
Either way I have 2 and 3 on the Xbox so dunno if I'll spring for this but maybe, I've been wanting to make more of an attempt to get into the series.
I’ll be pretty angry if this doesn’t come to Switch.
I got the collection for PS3 back then as I'd never played a MGS game and wanted to get started... To this day I still haven't played any of them. xd
If all three are on cartridge, then this would be a Day 1 for me.
Remember people. Last year Xbox had their big moment when they announce that Persona 3, 4, and 5 are coming to their platforms. Then two days later. Atlas announced that’s it also coming to PS4 and PS5. Then Nintendo had a DIRECT and announced that it’s also coming. There is yet to be a summer Nintendo Direct…..
Given Sony's inseverable tone throughout the entire presentation, I wouldn't be surprised if this is a PlayStation exclusive because the other baby consoles for babies don't count as the "latest".
Konami has been playing relatively nice with the Switch. And if Snake Eater can be ported to the 3DS of all things, the Switch should be a slam dunk.
Also, I know it's a different company, but this rubs salt on the wound, remembering how dirty the Switch was done in regards to the Kingdom Hearts collections...
@Lizuka People HATE The Twin Snakes, tho.
Honestly I’d pre-order without hesitation
I haven’t played these games since the original PS1/2 era, and remember my time with all of them fondly (especially MGS2)
In the age of miracle ports, and considering the Switch can just about run Witcher 3(!), surely this isn’t a stretch? Xeno3 and TOTK put the machine through its paces, but still run relatively smooth …. These MGS remasters shouldn’t be an issue?
I think they would sell remarkably well on Switch, and probably also be a ‘solid’ opportunity to introduce a lot of Nintendo-only owners to a fantastic franchise
If the 3DS could run 3, the Switch should be able to run these just fine.
This ain’t coming to Switch. That’s just an opinion of course, and is based purely on the fact that Konami chose not to release Castlevania Requiem: Symphony of the Night/Rondo of Blood on Switch, for literally no reason whatsoever.
This MGS collection will be PS5, Xbox and PC only.
@Sequel I replayed all the mainline MGS games earlier this year. I was impressed by how well MGS1 holds up.
@DTFaux The collection sure, but the new Snake Eater is another thing. As far as I know this version is for the PS5 and Series X so if it isn't coming to PS4 it's unlikely that there would be a Switch version. The Snake Eater version on 3DS was completely possible because it was a pretty much a PS2 game with slightly better graphics and a few changes on the gameplay. The 3DS was on par with the GameCube/PS2, even a bit stronger if I recall correctly.
People can’t seriously be asking for The Twin Snakes over the original. That’s like asking for the 1997 Shining miniseries over the Kubrick movie.
@nessisonett Exactly! I suppose that many were introduced to the franchise with that version on the GameCube but yeah, It's almost unbearable for me to watch those cutscenes.
Edit: Just so people have an idea of how bad that version is, these are some of the changes that were made for the worst:
1. Gameplay. Yes, it's supposedly improved as it's more similar to MGS2. The thing is that the game was designed with the gameplay limitations that MGS had and this affected in a negative way instead of being a positive change, particularly in boss fights, making them easier and not as engaging.
2. Soundtrack was changed. I don't recall correctly but I do remember many iconic themes being changed or completely different. It was also laughably bad in certain story moments that I don't want to spoil. I think that there were changes in the voice acting too, which was great and ended up being inferior.
3. Many war commentaries were removed. Metal Gear is such an insightful series that distances itself from other games with "war themes" by actually reflecting on it and offering gameplay alternatives to avoid killing and destroying everything. Removing those epic discourses was like removing a good part of the essence of the franchise.
4. As mentioned, the cutscenes. Sure, Metal Gear always had over the top stuff, but this is another kind of thing. It felt like the game was trying to be more like an anime or I don't know what the hell were they thinking. It ruined many key moments in the story.
To be fair, as far as I know Kojima wanted those changes. He wanted a "crazier version". I love the man but that was definitely the wrong direction. Maybe he wanted to sabotage it so that his version reigned supreme haha.
Minority input here, apparently, but I absolutely love Twin Snakes and would take it in a heartbeat. I mean, I imported and played the original MGS on PSX and loved it, played the heck out of the US release and ate it up, and, well, Twin Snakes is my favorite way to go. Love the Kitamura cutscenes and the gameplay updates, so…to each their own!
Though I don’t expect it, and would still be thrilled to get any of these on Switch at all, especially 3.
I'll expect the worst and hope for the best in this case.
Besides MGS4, I have the entire collection on Steam Deck, but I'd still buy the collection for a 3rd time if it meant having the mainline games on my Switch.
I'd be floored if MGS2 and MGS3 somehow still included skateboard mode and monkey mode.
Now that would be a ridiculous thing to hope for.
I played the heck outta MGS1, MGS3, MGS: Twin Snakes, and MGS3D. Never really cared for MGS2 much, nor Peace Walker, and I’ve been waiting forever for an MGS4 port to more modern systems as I no longer have my PS3 and never got around to finishing it.
I’d totally get this and an MGS4 port on Switch, and MGSV just to complete the collection. Hopefully we get all volumes
From a business perspective, it would behoove Konami to release this on Switch to show/reintroduce the entire Switch base, which is massive, the Metal Gear series. Then once the fan base get a taste, they’ll want the 3 remake and have to purchase a PS5 to do it, and possibly double-dip on the master collection again. Money over fist (I never quite made sense of that saying.)
Essentially, it’s almost like a chance to advertise if they port it to Switch.
Anyway, I’ll preorder so fast if this gets announced in a direct!
It should be doable.
Granted they might only have MGS 1 on a cart with the rest being a download but I see no issues.
Think the real question is what would volume 2 contain?
4's a given. But the rest? The PSP games? The NES/MSX games? Both MGS V Parts again? Twin Snakes?
I wonder how they might be able to port the fourth game. I think MGS 4 was developed for PS4 and used the hard drive and blu ray disc format to improve the game. Which is probably a big reason for not bringing it to Xbox 360 later on.
And it did not get a re-release on PS4 or Xbox One either. Maybe it is trickier to bring it to other platforms if it was kind of tailor made for PS3.
They could always make a completely new build though. Just use old assets and some code from the previous PS4 version, but a new game engine. But then it could turn out to be a bad port.
Konami is playing their cards right. Metal Gear Solid and Silent Hill are some of their more modern hits and maybe better to bet money on than Castlevania, Gradius, Contra, Track n field or other old school games with a more limited target audience.
A new track n field game for cell phones might be cool.
@nessisonett I like your analogy as I'm quite fond of The Shining book and Kubrick's film (not the miniseries, naturally). With that said, and this is probably an unpopular opinion since fewer people have played Twin Snakes, it seems more accurate to compare Twin Snakes and MGS1 to the original Resident Evil on the PS1 versus the RE1 Remake on the Gamecube.
If a gamer started with the PS1 version, that's the version they know and love, despite the chunky graphics, dated soundscape, and more limited/frustrating combat abilities and enemy AI. It was absolutely revolutionary for 1998 and that's a big part of why people love it to this day.
However, if a gamer played both games around the same time or even if they just started with Twin Snakes first, I think it's reasonable to conclude Twin Snakes is just a bit easier to play since it is more similar to MGS2 and the other future titles, in both mechanics and the more egregious cinematics, which often seems to be the main complaint towards Twin Snakes. Kojima has always stated his passion for movies and cinematics, and I think if the PS1 could handle it at the time, he would have wedged in much more over-the-top cutscenes like those found in Twin Snakes.
For the same reasons that people will always compare RE1 to RE1 Remake, I think it's just a matter of preference, not that one is obviously better than the other. Both are excellent games.
I don’t know… are we certain the Switch can handle PS2 games? 😅
@Astral-Grain I can't believe folk prefer the original to Twin Snakes? I guess it's like people preferring Metroid Prime over Metroid Prime Remaster.
switch cannot run so advanced titles like those one
Probably just get them on PC, I like my cloud saves too much and Nintendo putting that feature behind a paywall bothers me.
Crossing my fingers for a Switch version of the collection but if not I'll get it on PC
Konami are going to want to make a such money as possible from this so it will of course be on the Switch. The remake won't though
People acting like Twin Snakes is comparable to REmake or Metroid Prime Remastered... no, it's a different game. It doesn't even feel like a game from the same series as the others. The cut scenes are goofy, the voice acting and music is terrible, while the mechanics they added from MGS2, while sticking to the original MGS map just break the gameplay.
Maybe the the collection has a chance of hitting the Switch but I’m doubtful of the remake for 3.
Twin snakes is good just different from the original due to alot of changes but I don't think it will come back.
Collection could come to Switch but snake eater I suspect won't leave ps5 (presumably Sony paid for at least timed exclusivity)
Watch it somehow STILL not come to PC
No reason to not come to Switch TBH, provided Konami ain't THAT dumb... god it's been 8 years since MGS V.
@GrailUK @Astral-Grain Not at all. It's not a matter of prefering the original just for the sake of nostalgia. It's that Twin Snakes feels out of place in the franchise for many long time fans because it has a different tone. The other games did have the technology to be as and even more "cinematic" that Twin Snakes and yet they never were as absurd as that one. I even consider MGS more cinematic simply because as mentioned, it had actual hours of reflexion on war that aren't included in that entry and it's not only that, it's how certain interactions and cutscenes were handled. I really recommend you guys to see how different cutscenes played in both games. From voice acting to soundtrack, they were really weird changes.They removed classic, defining tunes from the game and exaggerated the actions and abilities of certain characters while the original felt more grounded and made sense to what you knew about them. The voice acting in the original game is among the best and wouldn't be topped easily... and it wasn't. I'm not saying that you'll prefer the original, but you'd see that there are many significant differences.
As for gameplay, it should be better...on paper. I clarify that I have received positively almost every gameplay change on every new entry and not just on Metal Gear but other franchises as well. However, the reason why this game didn't work is because boss fights weren't planned around certain mechanics like first person aiming, practically ruining them by making them devoid of challenge as you didn't need to "figure out" certain aspects. For me, MGS 2 was an improvement over MGS with those same gameplay changes because the game was designed with them in mind.
Just to clarify, I love Metroid prime Remastered and MGS isn't my favourite entry, it's actually a tie between Metal Gear 3 and 5. I would have loved if they had tweaked the game around the improved gameplay and kept how the original cutscenes happened but with those upgraded visuals. I really liked the 3DS version of Snake Eater despite of the frame rate issues and would have loved to see the same treatment in Twin Snakes instead of what happened.
Don't get me wrong, it's fine if you like that game more, but I wanted to explain the reason why many of us prefer the original entry because you have a completely different idea.
Never played an MGS game before in my life and have always wanted to start with the originals before anything else so this was unironically probably the announcement of last night's PS Showcase for me. Praying this gets brought to Switch or even PS4!🤞
That will be awesome Metal gear solid on the Nintendo Switch but it is better if it is a new game. New Metal gear solid game.
80% chance this won't come to Switch
15% chance it will come to Switch as a cloud game.
4,9% chance it will be a download-only release (full price per game)
0,1% chance it will be a physicial release.
Just announce the platforms. I don't like playing the waiting game like this. Getting people potentially excited only to later announce it's not coming to your platform of choice.
Well whatever. I'll get it if it comes to Switch, otherwise I won't bother.
Why you reporting this? It has nothing to do, with our Switch!
Not to be negative, but these games aren't anything that Switch couldn't handle
Wait another 3 months. Then they will say it‘ll arrive in November.
It's ok, I have a RTX 4090
Switch will easily run the original titles so I’ve got hope that we will see them. Forget the remake, absolutely no chance 🤣.
Personally, I think the switch version should include Twin Snakes as it was a GameCube exclusive. But we’ll see
I’d love this on the switch. Won’t hold my breath but I’d buy it in a heartbeat.
@LiquidNinja I can't see why the collection can't run on Switch... Even MGS4 should be doable (though way more complicated to port due to never having a 360 or PC port). But, the only way I see this not coming to Switch is Konami being Konami as the Castlevania, Contra and Arcade collections sold really well on Switch. But, on a technical level a a PSOne game and two 360 remasters of PS2 games should be more than portable.
Not sure about Twin Snakes ever getting rereleased due to the amount of Nintendo easter eggs (and the portraits of Nintendo, Kojima and Silicon Knights staff)... Plus do we know if Nintendo has the source code as SK has been defunct for over a decade... It would be a difficult project to greenlit. The only way I see the game seeing the light of day is Nintendo Online if GCN ever gets added on Switch 2.
This will have four possible responses from Konami.
Either. Cloud version, with a you’ll like it or lump it type reply.
Or Some kind of metal gear related free but pay to win game.
Or Konami has head in sand.
Most likely Surprise release of the games but in less polished state with no chance of a patch . Konami acts incredulous as no one buys the games they decide to patch the games way after the damage is done. Meanwhile saber interactive or panic manage to get some insane current gen port running on the switch 30 fps and 900 dynamic docked and 30fp 540 dynamic handheld.
@PessitheMystic That collection used sony translations
Thats why it was ps exclusive, because ps paid for transolations
@SlySnake0407 starting with the MSX?
btw i don't think we'll be getting this, the word latest suggest xbsx and ps5 to me..
Would guess all will be emulated on the PS5/XB in-line with recent PS Plus Plus releases. A Nintendo focused release with the NES/GBC/GC MGS releases would be nice. Suspect there will be complaints when the price is announced.
RE to REmake and MGS to Twin Snakes is not comparable in the slightest. I say this as someone who played all of these when they originally came out. REmake completely captured the essence of the original and improved on it significantly. Twin Snakes did not. It is one of the most divisive remakes, and in my opinion, one of the worst.
@Roibeard64 MGS∆ is confirms to be coming to PS5 XSX/S and PC. I don't think a Switch port will happen till next gen. Silent Hill 2 is confirmed PS console exclusive
@HeadPirate Sony's recent comments on Nintendo make me wonder what happened to the all the love. They seem annoyed the Switch surpassed PS4 sales in half the time and possibly could overtake the PS2. But, Microsoft seems the most keen to work with Nintendo. Probably to diversify their portfolio and profit margins.
Sony moved it's leadership to the US.
There is no room for respecting your competitors in US philosophy. Overnight they went from a positive driving force in game development as a whole to a company that recently said no to Microsoft's offer to give every PS+ member all COD game made over the next 10 years FOR FREE just so they could challenge the Activision acquisition.
Most of Nintendo's infrastructure runs on Azure, so they can't really be openly hostile towards MS. At the same time, given that Xbox has about 2% market share in Japan and doesn't seem overly interested in the same verticals Nintendo focuses on (portable, value and low end, family friendly gaming), I don't think the two even really think of each other as competitors.
They very comfortable co-exist in the same space.
What a thrill.
@Vortexeo I can’t imagine owning a console other than a Nintendo one, and haven’t for years. However MGS1+2 are such incredible games. I replayed the first one last year and the story still holds up
@HeadPirate Sony has always been arrogant p***** though. This is just the Sony I remember from the PS3 generation (go back and read interviews about the launch price and the cell). Though this current attitude is a stark contrast compared to how Sony talked about the Wii U and the Switch early-on. I just think they believe they own the gaming market and now see Nintendo as a rival again so need to knock Nintendo down a peg.
Obviously I wouldn't hold my breath for the MGS3make coming to Switch, unless it arrives in a hideous-Cloud format.... but surely the MGS remaster pack should/could land on Switch?
I'd genuinely get this day 1, probably even pre-order. I think Konami/Sony would be missing a real trick here... Look how well the GTA remasters sold on Switch (irrespective of port quality).
This remaster pack would basically print money.
Just remaster the gamecube version.
Nice! That thing supposedly has the power of 10 PS5's. If i could run all of my games at 120fps(or at least 90) I'd be a happy camper. Plus, I wouldn't want the remade MGS trilogy on Switch anyways, if it means(And it does mean) they'll be compromised up the ying yang in terms of core visuals, frame rate and resolution etc.
I saw a friend play through the whole of solid 1, can't wait to play it myself!
I've got three loaded on the 3ds, but wow those controls! I'm really open to playing it with my trusty pro controller!!
I'd love to finally be able to play the Metal Gear series at all and even more so fully (I missed both Twin Snakes on GameCube and Snake Eater on 3DS and even if I got both of those I'd still be missing out) so fingers crossed this comes to Switch and/or its successor!
These are must plays for anyone who has never played them before. What would they do for a vol. 2 exactly? I know there’s peacewalker and there are different versions of 3, of course 4 and 5 if they are thinking of those, then VR missions. 4 I’ve always wanted to play.
I think a Switch release is a safe bet. I'm still waiting on the DS Castlevanias, though.
I would rather have this collection on Switch than PS5. So hopefully it gets announced for the Switch.
By the way, speaking as a PlayStation fan, that showcase was lame as hell. Except for MGS and Spider-Man 2. Everything else was so middling or just terrible.
The Switch has no Analog buttons, which were used a lot in MGS2 and MGS3.
I'm not sad it's not coming to Switch. I'll get it on XBox or PS
Removed - offensive remarks
Bring it to physical and I might look into it, otherwise, meh.
Also how are you able to unplug your controller and put it in port 2 for Psycho Mantis when you are wireless?
I don't see why they would not release them on Switch. Would it make sense to skip the best selling console?
Then again, even if they come I'd likely skip. I have a feeling my gaming hobby will end for a long time after I've finished Tears of the Kingdom. It was the game I have waited for 6 years and so far has been worth it. I don't think any game will be able to top it in a long, long time. Could take decades, just like in the case of OOT.
Well, maybe I could get Metroid Prime 4 if it comes to Switch, but after that I don't see anything interesting in the horizon.
there is the metal gear solid collection for the vita. people are forgetting about that one.(even though it excludes MGS1)
I can see them porting that version to the switch easily. since the switch can emulate vita games and they already ported over some other vita games to the switch. I'd like to finally have a 8 bit metal gear collection. that would be nice. with the MSX games translated in the way kojima meant them to be instead of fan releases. which are well done regardless, but sometimes I feel like I'm playing someone's fan fiction. so an official release of the msx games would be awesome for the 35th. even snakes revenge. 😉
I still own the Legacy collection that came with basically all the Metal Gear games on PS3. Was never a big fan of the series though but cool that they're trying to revive it after years of doing nothing with the series.
@Sequel I played MGS1 the year MGS3 made its way to 3DS and it still holds up. I think it's the only PS1 game that still feels modern. Give it a shot, I'm thinking you'll be pleased.
It will come to Switch, surely. Konami has enjoyed a lot of success in the console, it's a no brainer. Vol 2. seems like the one that will have MGS4 on it, so, I'd buy that day one!
It should be ports of twin snakes, substance, and subsistence.
WHAT A THRILL
I would like to see it on switch I just don't want it on xbox they don't deserve metal gear solid
Is it just me or is this smaller than the collection released on PS3? so less value?
Mgs 1 is using the ps4/5 ps1 emulator so unless Nintendo has a fully licensed ps1 emulator up and running mgs1 is not happening. 2 and 3 are ports of the HD remaster so those two would be more likely to come to switch, unless they’re running on an unannounced PS3 or vita emulator. MGS2 and 3 are already backwards compatible with Xbox 0/s/x but aren’t available for purchase due to licensing issues but that looks like that has been straightened out with the announcement of this collection.
Need on Switch now
@romanista No, I skipped them on this playthrough. I said MGS vs. just Metal Gear very much intentionally. I have finished them in the past though.
I love the Metal Gear games and all I can say is; I NEED!
@Angelic_Lapras_King Metal Gear Rising!!!
@Ryu_Niiyama You mean the Legacy Collection? They got lucky that generation, since everything was already ported and backwards compatible on Playstation. Even MGS1 is just using the official PS store emulator.
You can practically play through Kojima's entire life's work with just a PS3 alone, if you don't mind a janky version of MGSV. But I'd rather have these games on the go.
I’d like to see this come to Switch. These are great games and the more systems it’s on, the more people will get to play them. The only thing I can think of that might hold the Switch from getting this is because what might follow “volume 1.” I don’t know what would be on future volume(s) but maybe it’s something the current Switch can’t handle? Konami might look at that and decide if it can’t run all the volumes, then it gets none of them. Either way, I’m keeping my fingers crossed for this to come to the Switch.
Collection I'm sure is coming to Switch, remake likely not. Konami has made a lot of money on retro collections for the Switch, and I'm sure they would again with Metal Gear solid. Plus, it would be odd to have Snake on Smash but none of his games on the Switch platform.
@roy130390 I would like to say, your opinion is respected
@roy130390 I'm sorry if I gave the impression that MGS1 is only loved because it's nostalgic, and I hoped to drive this home when I concluded that "both are excellent games".
Both MGS1 and Twin Snakes are excellent games, neither one does everything perfectly, but as you and a couple of others demonstrated, the one you like is based purely on personal preference. You prefer the tone of MGS1 because you compare Twin Snakes to the original and see what is lacking, and not the other way around.
It's okay to conclude both are good games, that's why so many other comments are simply saying they wish it was Twin Snakes - no matter which version is included in this collection, there would always be a group of people unhappy that their preferred version wasn't chosen. The same thing happened when they chose to port Persona 3 Portable over Persona 3 FES, they're both great, and neither one is perfect when compared to each other.
Even if I preferred MGS1 over Twin Snakes, after playing all games in the franchise, it's clear to me both are excellent games.
If they weren't both great games, we wouldn't even be talking about it.
It was confirmed a while ago that MGSV could run on switch and seeing as it ran on PS3, that’s not surprising. I want this so bad, MGS3 is one of my favourite games and would love to play it on switch. Dammit, time to get the PS3 out of retirement.
@OrtadragoonX Same here, I would love to see this collection on the Switch.
@NeonPizza Nintendo devices had been my sole gaming use since the SNES but I've gotten sick of the compromise Switch gamers have to make. Still use the Switch for exlusives though (but the new Zelda running on Yuzu at 4K 60fps does look tempting).
@Nintendo4Sonic Neither do the PS4, PS5, Xbox One and Xbox Series.
60fps? I'm tired of 60. I wish 90fps would become the default standard, and 120 being the luxury which might be the case for something like a PS5 Pro. 120fps gives you 4 upgrades in one. You cut motion blur down by half which makes for a night and day difference, you double up on motion clarity,(300 to 600p) latency drops down to 5ms from 10ms(Closer to a CRT) and you get smoother life like motion. I'll never understand the desire for 4K+60, when 1080p @120fps completely obliterates it for the 4 following reasons i mentioned above.
60fps looks fantastic on CRT, but not sample and hold displays like OLED. Too much motion blur(High motion persistence at 16ms) and very low motion clarity. OLED Black frame insertion can do wonders in regards to reducing blur and gaining higher motion clarity but input lag either doubles or triples, you cream more than half your TV's brightness and there's noticeable flicker on whites, depending. Brute forcing higher frame rates, at this point, is the only way to get greater motion persistence & clarity, plus low latency with zero compromises.
Vol 2 MGS4 , Rising , MGS V+GZ
I'm at a point with Switch where I'd rather games wait for Switch 2. MGS should wait.
I honestly would have preferred TotK to have waited too. The game doesn't look good enough. The small field of vision (particularly when using the scope) is a huge flaw.
FF7 Remake is another good example. It looks so dated already because of the PS4. The PS5 version is clearly held back.
@NeonPizza After 2 generations of sub HD, 30fps, I'm happy with anything 1080p 60fps. I'm maxing out my 120hz and 144hz screens with max detail with the 4090 though. I was using Vuzu (Switch emulator) for the 4K60 comment - maybe it can go even higher with a 4090. Zelda at 4K144 maybe?
A series I’ve never played
Includes Metal Gear 1 & 2 according to the playstation store page Think they might have slipped up and leaked that info
Edit: The originals, not the Solid series
Metal Gear 2: Solid Snake
Metal Gear Solid (Including VR Missions/Special Missions)
Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty (HD Collection version)
Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater (HD Collection version)
@Sequel you definitely should. Trust me, you won't be disappointed. I played through it again last year and it's as good as you remember it being.
The facts are the switch is a tired old man and people cannot be bothered to spend the required time trying to get games to run on it. I love the system dearly, but the sooner we get an upgrade the better. Unfortunately, as long as kids who have no grasp of the possible technical flaws of a game continue to buy the system, Nintendo's analysts will blindly assume that it's still perfect. Although, I'm still certain we'll either see it or hear about the replacement this year.
If it doesn't get released on Switch, it'll be purely on Konami's whim, since the previous remasters are available on the Vita and work quite well, other than the occasional slowdown during more complex cutscenes im MGS3.
Someone mentioned analog triggers - the Vita doesn't have those either. It used motions on the touchpad in the back, could be easily translated to the touchscreen on Switch.
I don't see the mgs 3 remake coming, not nearly enough power.
For me i kind of liken twin snakes to something like REm4ke as in its a different enough experience that the original game still holds value.
@Mgalens Yeah, that's probably a better way of looking at it to be fair.
Wow. Never played the games, but I am wanting for a switch release, like most of you!
Im hoping for a Switch release but im doubtful. I would be surprised if it's available for The Switch, but fingers crossed.
