Konami has officially confirmed the long-awaited Metal Gear Solid 3 remake. Unveiled during the recent PlayStation Showcase event, the publisher released a cinematic trailer for the game, titled ‘Metal Gear Solid Δ: Snake Eater,’ promising a faithful recreation of Hideo Kojima’s original masterpiece while incorporating modern visuals and a seamless user experience. Interestingly, this installment will break away from its Sony ties and be made available on PC (via Steam) and Xbox Series S/X. This marks the first entry in the franchise since Metal Gear Solid 5, which also coincided with Kojima’s departure from the company.
The trailer showcases stunning computer-generated imagery, featuring the protagonist Naked Snake exploring swamps and observing a thrilling battle between an alligator and a massive serpent. Further details about the Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater remake were revealed through subsequent tweets from Konami. They emphasized their commitment to preserving the original narrative, which served as an origin story for Naked Snake. While no specific developer was mentioned, a report from Video Games Chronicle in 2021 suggested that Virtuous, a renowned external studio known for its work on Horizon Zero Dawn and Uncharted 4, was leading the project. It is intriguing that Konami refers to the studio merely as ‘Development Team’ instead of its actual name, leaving us wondering about the reasons behind this decision.
The remake is aptly named Metal Gear Solid Δ: Snake Eater, with the Delta symbol representing change while maintaining the core structure. Konami explained their choice, stating, “The Delta symbol (Δ) was chosen because its meaning fits the concept of the remake project.” The original PS2 game followed FOX operative Naked Snake on a clandestine mission to rescue Russian weapon designer Nikolai Stepanovich Sokolov and sabotage a powerful experimental weapon called the Shagohod. Gameplay primarily revolved around stealth, featuring a clever camouflage ability useful in forest environments and close-quarters combat known as CQC (close-quarters combat).
In addition to co-writing the story, Kojima also served as the director of Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater. However, it is highly unlikely that he will be involved in the remake, considering his acrimonious departure from Konami. Following his exit, Kojima’s name was removed from all marketing material related to the Metal Gear series. Therefore, it will be intriguing to see if his name is mentioned in any future promotional material for the game, given the claim of a faithful reproduction. After all, this is his story.
Furthermore, alongside the remake, Konami is set to release the Metal Gear Solid: Master Collection Vol. 1, which includes the original trilogy – Metal Gear Solid, Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty, and the aforementioned Snake Eater. The release is scheduled for this autumn, marking the series’ return to the latest platforms (specific platforms not specified).
Metal Gear Solid Δ: Snake Eater will be available on PC, PS5, and Xbox Series S/X.
