This is Snake in 2D. Snake in 3D? Uh, snak...ier.
This is Snake in 2D. Snake in 3D? Uh, snak...ier.

It's a rough time as a news guy right now, with rumors flying fast and furious as E3 fast approaches-- and few companies willing to address them. The latest issue of MCV UK, for example, listed Metal Gear Solid: Snake Eater 3D, a game we haven't heard much about since it debuted at E3 last year, as a November release. Konami hasn't made anything official yet, so I asked the company about the date.

Time to clip a coin on Konami's answer, folks!

"Konami hasn’t officially announced a ship date for that title yet," said a spokesperson to me.

Swing...and a miss. Naturally, such an answer comes as Konami begins sending out invitations to its pre-E3 press conference, taking place June 2, several days prior to E3. In all likelihood, Metal Gear Solid: Snake Eater 3D will make an appearance there, right alongside a date. November? We'll see.

I think it's kinda lame that the 3DS games I'm most interested in are remakes of games I already own.

@Grissefar: Well you did deserve it for being clever with it, but random nonsense takes the win.

No one cares about your friggin quest duder. Comment on the news instead of going offtopic.

Was looking forward to this game but it's taking it's time to come out... and will it be worth it ?

This would be awesome if it came out in November but I highly doubt it.

NGP hadn't been announced last year at E3. Since this was in the lineup of 3DS games when it was revealed it'd be a shitty move to pull out of it.

@Agent47:  Apparently, they are making  a proper sequel for the NGP along the lines of Port Ops and PW.

It's not, Metal Gear Solid 2: Substance is..

 

And this is not the route I want the 3DS to go down at all, its just making games that are funner to play on consoles

Looks better than the PS2 version for the most part. Then again it's Kojima Prod. doing the game.

I never played Snake Eater on the PS2, but always wanted to. This might actually give me a reason to be interested in the 3DS.


Also, nowhere in that article does it mention this is for the 3DS :(

Snake Eater in 3D sounds great. I haven't played the original yet, but I will definitely play the original before the 3D version.

i thought they never "officially" announced this as a game? didnt they keep on saying it was just a tech demo of what konami could do on the 3DS?

@kingcopper:  its still considered canon for Big Boss' story, and it was still a good game if you could get past the d-pad camera movement

MGS3 is one of the best narrative-driven games I've ever played. I literally got a 3DS to play this again. I know, I'm friggin' stupid.

So when Big Boss losses his eye, does the game turn off the 3D?
