Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater is getting a modern remake. Revealed at today’s PlayStation Showcase, Metal Gear Solid Delta: Snake Eater is a new remake from Konami. It doesn’t have a release date yet, but a Metal Gear Solid remaster collection is coming this fall.

Rumors of a Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater began to pop up earlier this year, with some teasing that the game would be present at the PlayStation Showcase. Those rumors proved true as the project got a trailer during Sony’s big show. The game is also coming to Xbox and PC.


Metal Gear Solid 3′s remake appears to be a ground-up rebuild of the original Snake Eater for PS2, a game we recently hailed as one of the 50 best games of all timeThe trailer shown during PlayStation’s show didn’t give much information, though. All we saw was a cinematic trailer that showed Solid Snake hiding in the jungle. No gameplay was shown and details remain very sparse.

Not only is Konami giving fans a remake of this PS2 gem a new Metal Gear classic collection is also set to launch alongside it. The pack of games includes Metal Gear Solid 1, 2, and 3 in their original state, bringing newcomers an easy way to get into the series before the remake of 3 drops.

While this is the first time Metal Gear Solid 3 is being fully remade, it’s been remastered multiple times for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PlayStation Vita for the Metal Gear Solid HD Collection. It was also remastered in a 3D exclusive port for the Nintendo 3DS.

Metal Gear Solid: Snake Eater is set to launch on for the PlayStation 5, Xbox One, and PC.

Yesterday, publisher Konami officially confirmed Metal Gear Solid V: The Definitive Experience. Bundled with every piece of DLC across both Ground Zeroes and The Phantom Pain, it looks like the best way to experience Venom Snake's journey, but Konami has still not addressed the elephant in the room: the game's ending is almost nonexistent.
