Alongside the MGS: Delta announcement, Konami announced they’ll be doing (presumably) multiple volumes of Metal Gear remasters, beginning with Volume 1. Volume 1 will not include only MGS1, 2 and 3 remasters, but also the MSX titles Metal Gear and Metal Gear 2.
Undoubtedly, MGS2 looks probably the most aesthetically pleasing of all those screenshots - but for PS5 (and potentially PS4?) owners, we’ll have access to the back catalogue of classic games again at ease.
Anybody particularly excited for this? I’ve actually had a bit of an itch recently to replay the franchise, and I think I’ll still do so on the PS Vita - but I look forward to having the opportunity to do so on the PS5 eventually as well when I have one. Maybe this will also kick my ass into gear to play MG1 and 2!
Absolutely! The fact this is the first volume is intriguing. I can’t lie, despite my problems with MGS4, knowing it’s potentially down the road is exciting.
I’ve probably played MGS4 the least (not counting MGO), and I’d like to go back and play it again with fresh eyes and a more mature mind. Alas, my original disc is fucked beyond repair from numerous rage quits due to box popping cock mongers.
They’ve really made it hard for us to enjoy the series over the years, haven’t they?
Won’t be getting it as I’ve already been playing through the series again on Vita but glad it’s coming for anyone that’s been waiting for it.
For anyone hoping for MGS4 in a future collection though, Jez Corden (one of the people that leaked this collection’s existence before the showcase) said it won’t be getting remastered at any point. I think it may be forever locked on the PS3 at this stage due to it’s complicated build (“THE CEEEEELLL” but in The Fear’s voice). People have also pointed out that this might not definitely mean we get future collections despite the wording on the official site and it being listed as “Vol 1” as Konami released a Silent Hill and I think a different franchise Vol 1 collection and never followed up with a Vol 2.
I’m lowkey more excited for this than I am the Snake Eater remake haha. Especially that MGS1 includes the Special Missions. Haven’t played any of those since I was a wee lad, never managed to unlock Gray Fox either.
The thing Im worrying about…hopefully all the archival footage is still intact. i dont want this version to be edited. But yes, i still have a ps3 hooked up just to play bits of mgs when i have the urge, lol.
Hmmm hard to know. The war footage licence had expired right, that was the reason the games and HD collection were delisted from digital platforms? Maybe it was never renewed or it wasn’t possible to do so, so perhaps they’ve had to work the dialogue in those scenes over something different. Could also be smaller stuff, like I remember seeing the posters of women in lockers in MGS2 were originally from FHM (or at least it was in the PAL version), but in the HD collection they were generic images with no branding and including men.
