Want to get real with Solid Snake on a portable platform? You will not go wrong with Metal Gear Solid Snake Eater 3D that is headed for the Nintendo 3DS this coming February 21st. Hideo Kojima’s latest epic title is actually a reworked update of the original best-selling PlayStation 2 title, ensuring you get to enjoy home console-quality entertainment on the go on the Nintendo 3DS. I do wonder whether you might want to try playing this in a field somewhere during a warm night and let mosquitoes feed off your blood while you navigate Solid Snake through a jungle setting with literally eye-popping graphics. Not only that, Konami has ensured that Metal Gear Solid Snake Eater 3D will be supporting the new Circle Pad Pro accessory while revealing the packshot for the first time.
Here is some context – Metal Gear Solid Snake Eater 3D will see you roll back the clock to the height of the Cold War during the 1960s, where you will help Solid Snake infiltrate the Soviet jungle to bring back a scientist who is being held against his will. Stealth is key here, so don’t go in with guns blazing as that is the fastest way to end up frustrated with the game before you throw the Nintendo 3DS across the room. What is exclusive to Metal Gear Solid Snake Eater 3D would be an all-new camouflage photography system that allows you to match and blend Solid Snake’s suit with his immediate environment, as you snap a photo of real-life items in order to create a camo suit based on them. Effectiveness varies, that is one certainty. This looks set to be one solid (no pun intended) for Snake.
