Metal Gear Solid Δ: Snake Eater

Recommended Posts

Finally officially official:

Quote

METAL GEAR SOLID A: SNAKE EATER is a faithful remake of Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater. A new generation of players and loyal fans alike can experience the origin story of the famed Big Boss, and witness how his legend was forged in the crucible of Operation Snake Eate.

METAL GEAR SOLID A: SNAKE EATER will be available for PlayStation®5, Xbox Series X|S, and Steam®.

Sorely needed gameplay imho.

Would love to hear H-o-T's thoughts on this, because that trailer - especially after all the leaks! - just felt super flat.

That trailer does not inspire confidence…

MGS sans Kojima is something I do not want.

More interested in the MGS Master Collection than this so far.

It's going to be weird playing a MGS game without any Kojima input, Snake Eater is my favourite of the whole franchise.

New in-engine footage from today's Xbox Partner Preview:

Yep, that's MGS3 in UE5 alright...

Looks artless.  Like one of those Mario In Unreal Engine videos, but with a budget.

Might as well be AI generated.

Honestly, even that bloody awful MGS3 Pachislot machine respects the original game's art direction far more than this generic looking slop...

First look at the main menu from today's Production Hotline video:

This game has been marketed so weirdly.

Trailer from the weekend:

Hayter also turned up in Part 2 of the MGS Legacy Series...

...which also includes the first look at the Deluxe and Collector's Editions of the game:

Anyways, still not really sure how I feel about this. I think that this is the best that this remake of Snake Eater has looked - bit of a facelift from it's last showing - but a lot of the animation work definitely still looks like it's following the original just a bit too closely. 

Also, as someone who played Snake Eater for the first time just a few years ago - he says, refusing to acknowledge that it's already been 4 years since 2020 and that miserable lockdown - I just struggle to see what the pull is of this remake. Is this new coat of paint really going to be enough to get new fans onboard? I have my doubts.

This is where I'm at with the game. Snake Eater is my favourite MGS game, as well as being one of my favourite games of all time, but judging what we've seen so far, this version doesn't seem to be needed at all. It doesn't seem to be like the recent Resident Evil 4 remake where everything across the board got a huge upgrade. I'll obviously still play pick this up and play it but at the moment I still wondering why Konami decided to go down this route. Still, it looks lovely though and it's great to hear Hayter back as Snake. As much as I love Kojima, him casting Sutherland in Phantom Pain never sat right with me at all.
