In a reveal stacking on top of a reveal, the news of Metal Gear Solid: Snake Eater‘s return was punctuated with the announcement of Metal Gear Solid Master Collection Vol 1. This splash screen promised that we can “sneak back into the original games on PlayStation 5” this autumn.
So far, we know that the Metal Gear Solid Master Collection Vol 1 will contain the following games:
- Metal Gear Solid
- Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty
- Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater
The second and third titles will be based off the HD Collection versions of each game. Otherwise, we await more details about any extra features this compilation may bring.
A new promotional website for Metal Gear Solid Master Collection Vol 1 promises the compilation will “allow fans to play the games as they were, as first released on the latest platforms.” However, we have yet to receive official word on which platforms this collection will appear on. We’ll keep you posted as we learn more.
Konami has pumped out retro compilations of its glory day games at a consistent pace. In other words, it’s reasonable to believe that Metal Gear Solid Master Collection Vol 1 will follow a similar trend. Even more intriguing is the “Vol 1” part of the title, implying that a second collection will eventually appear. We’ll have to see how these games look on modern hardware later this year.
