Carry Snake in your trousers: Metal Gear Solid confirmed for iPhone

Metal Gear Solid for the iPhone has been confirmed. It’s called Metal Gear Solid Touch and will be based on the characters and story from Metal Gear Solid 4. There will be eight levels included in the release, with more levels to be added later on. Controls will be based on the touch screen (duh), and players will be able to unlock images and wallpapers with points earned from the game. Metal Gear Solid Touch will be out worldwide in the Spring of 2009.

Konami has also announced three other major franchises coming to the iPhone:

  • Frogger: It’s Frogger.
  • Dance Dance Revolution S Lite: It’s a game designed for people’s feet, but now for your thumbs. 
  • Silent Hill: The Escape: Port of a year-old cell phone game.

All three of these games will be out worldwide by the end of December. Some screens have been released on all the games, which you can check out in the gallery above. There’s no word yet on pricing, but keep an eye out on Touch.Konami for that and other details on all of these games.  

iPhone owners, are you excited for any of these games? Metal Gear Solid Touch looks really impressive. Hopefully it won’t have any four-hour cut-scenes, as that would totally kill the unit’s battery life.
