The official disclosure of a solid metal gear 3 remake was one of Sony’s headliners recent PlayStation 5 showcase, but it is likely that it will not be finished for some time. Fortunately, a collection of Metal Gear classics is coming to modern platforms this fall, and it will include more games than originally expected.

announced together Solid Metal Gear 3 Deltaby Konami Metal Gear Solid: Master Collection Vol. 1 is coming to PS5, Xbox Series X/S, and PC via Steam in just a few months, and the PlayStation store page (through eurogamer) now shows that the original metal gear 1 and 2 will also be part of the package, which laid the foundation for a sprawling framework of political intrigue, Cold War paranoia, and a super-complex family tree of boys called snake.

That means it will all house the first games in the spy and stealth series:

  • metal gear
  • Metal Gear 2: Solid Snake
  • solid metal gear (Including VR missions/special missions)
  • Metal Gear Solid 2: Children of Liberty (HD Collection Version)
  • Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater (HD Collection Version)

The first two games were in the MSX2, Solid was on ps1and sons of liberty and snake eater they were on PS2. This is essentially 2012 Metal Gear Solid HD Collection who brought these same games (minus walker for peace on the PSP) to PS3 and Xbox 360, but is currently not available on modern platforms. The only game not included metal gearThe initial run of 20 years is The Serpent’s Revengethe first sequel to the original game that wasn’t actually directed by writer-creator Hideo Kojima.

All of these games were previously removed from older storefronts in 2021 about issues related to “licenses for select historical archival footage used in the game.” Konami says the new collection will contain the original versions of the games with “minimal edits to copyrighted content.”

In any case, it is a lot metal gear, and if it’s on par with other classic Konami collections, hopefully it’ll be a decent tribute and preservation of the franchise. We don’t have an exact price or specific release date yet, but it should keep fans busy until snake eater RedoFor better or worse, it’s finally here.
