Metal Gear Solid: Master Collection Vol. 1 Announced, Bringing Classic Titles to Latest Platforms
Playing the first four Metal Gear Solid adventures has become a challenge in recent times. Konami’s removal of Sons of Liberty and Snake Eater from digital stores in 2021 due to licensing issues only added to the difficulty. Fortunately, this situation is about to change.
Konami has announced the upcoming release of Metal Gear Solid: Master Collection Vol. 1 for “the latest platforms” in the fall. This initial installment, seemingly the first of several collections, will include Metal Gear Solid, Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty, and Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater.
While Konami’s press release doesn’t provide extensive details, it seems that the collection will not feature remasters or the Substance/ Subsistence versions. Instead, the emphasis is on allowing fans to play the games in their original form on the latest platforms. Hopefully, this doesn’t mean that Konami intends to release the second collection solely comprising Metal Gear Solid: Twin Snakes, Metal Gear Solid 2: Substance, and Metal Gear Solid 3: Subsistence or something similar. It’s hard to believe they would make such a misstep, especially considering the anticipation surrounding the Metal Gear Solid 3 remake.
Fans eagerly await further information and confirmation that Konami will deliver a comprehensive and satisfying experience with the Metal Gear Solid: Master Collection Vol. 1. The prospect of revisiting these beloved classics on modern platforms is undoubtedly exciting, and it is hoped that Konami will honor the legacy of the franchise while also providing enhancements and improvements that fans have been longing for.
