The existence of a Metallic Gear Strong 3: Snake Eater remake was first reported on by VGC again in 2021 and the information immediately received individuals speaking. Since then varied little rumours and whispers have circulated, however they’ve ramped up significantly over the previous few months. Now, Windows Central’s Jez Corden says he’s managed to “hard-confirm” that it’s real and coming soon.
Corden talked about on his Xbox podcast a couple of weeks in the past that he had been listening to that the Metallic Gear Strong 3 remake was going to be multiplatform, going towards hypothesis that it might really be a Ps unique attributable to Sony working with Konami already on a Silent Hill 2 remake headed up by Bloober Workforce.
After that, Insider Gaming published a report saying that it had received phrase that the MGS3 remake was not unique to Ps, however that it might be proven on the upcoming Ps Showcase occasion. This would appear to point at the very least some kind of deal between Sony and Konami, equivalent to timed exclusivity, advertising or one thing else.
Going again to Jez Corden, he says that he has now been capable of “hard-confirm” the rumours he heard beforehand which he didn’t need to formally report as a result of he “wasn’t 100% positive on the time,”.
In response to Corden, “it’s coming to Xbox and PC in addition to PlayStation, regardless of a advertising deal.” which actually traces up with the assumption that the sport will debut within the Showcase fairly than a extra impartial occasion.
It’s not the one Konami property rumoured to be coming again, both, with quite a few rumours a few new Castlevania sport additionally being within the works. That’d make sense contemplating the Castlevania title has been surprisingly energetic currently, what with each an animated present on Netflix and particular Lifeless Cells DLC.
As for Metallic Gear Strong 3, it has managed to look in fairly a couple of articles discussing the perfect video games of all time. It’s nonetheless technically playable, however getting it may be difficult. It was a part of the Metallic Gear Strong HD Assortment which works by way of Xbox’s Backwards Compatibility program however you possibly can’t really purchase it digitally. Which means it’s essential personal the disc model which nonetheless often sells for round £30 on Ebay. I reviewed it waaaay again in 2012 and it was a variety of enjoyable, however I’d nonetheless like to see it being introduced again in both a correct remaster or full-blown remake.
That HD assortment was labored on by Bluepoint Video games who’ve made a reputation for themselves engaged on varied remasters, together with 2021’s Demon’s Souls. Many individuals have speculated that they is perhaps engaged on a remake of Ps icon Bloodborne, however proper now I’m questioning if they’re answerable for bringing Metallic Gear Strong 3 again to our screens. With it having been 3 years since Demon’s Souls, it might be about time for them to disclose their subsequent challenge, in spite of everything.
Now if solely Konami and Kojima might patch issues up so we might get a correct Metallic Gear Strong sequel.
