On of the Nintendo 3DS’ most eagerly awaited releases, Metal Gear Solid 3D: Snake Eater, is finally available throughout Europe. The Nintendo 3DS exclusive remake of the PlayStation2 classic Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater was unveiled alongside the console itself back in 2010, and has since been one of the titles most regularly used as an example of the system’s core gaming audience appeal.
Metal Gear Solid 3D: Snake Eater is set during the Cold War of the ‘60s, and sees series hero Snake infiltrating the Soviet jungle to bring back a scientist being held against his will. Starting on the outskirts of a military base, the player must use Snake’s stealth skills along with the foliage and shade that the jungle offers as cover to infiltrate unseen. As the videogame progresses, old faces make unwelcome appearances and a series of terrifying boss characters must be defeated before leading up to a dramatic twist that brings Snake face to face with a key figure from his past…
This new vision of the videogame springs to life in stereoscopic 3D, with the jungle’s dense foliage and craggy outcrops acting as cover as the player works their way through the verdant setting. The videogame also takes full advantage of the split-screen format, enabling easier access to Snake’s inventory, which is now located below the main action. Similarly, targeting enemies is now made simpler with the addition of Circle Pad Pro-compatibility, with the second Circle Pad allowing users to target distant foes with ease.
Available for the Nintendo 3DS system from today, Metal Gear Solid 3D: Snake Eater is exclusive to Nintendo’s newest handheld format.
