Metal Gear Solid: Snake Eater 3D heads to 3DS

One of the most popular Konami game franchises that has been around for a long time is Metal Gear Solid. A new version of one of the older PS2 titles is ready to head to the Nintendo 3DS game console soon. The game is called Metal Gear Solid: Snake Eater 3D. The game is an updated version of a PS2 classic, and it has some interesting features.

The game will support the 3DS Circle Pad Pro accessory, and it is set in the jungles of the 60s. Naturally, the graphics are tweaked from the PS2 version with 3D jungles and settings. The game is also made to take advantage of the split screen format. The inventory that Snake carries is now on the bottom screen, below the action for easy access.

The game makes stealth a key need for completing missions. To support that need for stealth the game allows the user to use a camouflage photography system. The player can take photos of things in their environment and use them to make camo clothing for Snake in the game. How well the camo will work will depend on how well it blends with the game environment. The game is set to launch on February 21 in the US and March 8 in the UK.
