For quite some time, there have been whispers of a remake of Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater. Konami has officially declared that the beloved PS2 classic is set to be reimagined for PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S and PC.
During the PlayStation Showcase, a remake of Metal Gear Solid 3 titled Metal Gear Solid Delta: Snake Eater was revealed. Please be aware that the “Delta” in the title is symbolized by the “Δ.”
The teaser trailer presented a recognizable jungle scenery and culminated with a close-up of Snake, all to the tune of Cynthia Harrell’s renowned theme song. The game promises to be a “faithful remake” of Hideo Kojima’s original masterpiece.
“In our development of Metal Gear Solid Delta: Snake Eater, we’re striving to stay true to the original narrative and game design while enhancing the gameplay with exceptional visuals and a fluid user experience,” expressed the team behind the remake in a public statement.
Snake Eater, the fifth installment in the Metal Gear series, unfolds first in the series timeline. It narrates the story of Big Boss, also known as Naked Snake, amid the Cold War of the 1960s. Initially launched on the PS2 in 2004, it was subsequently broadened into a version named Metal Gear Solid 3: Subsistence and released on the PS3 and Xbox 360 in high definition.
