The MSX, the console where Metal Gear made its first appearance, got off to a rocky start on the Virtual Console in Japan. Nintendo revealed Japan would get MSX games in 2007. The first MSX game was Aleste and it didn’t come out until May 27, 2008. D4 Enterprise handles MSX and Neo Geo Virtual Console distribution in Japan isn’t fazed. There are plans to commemorate EGGY, the second MSX Virtual Console release at Comiket with a limited edition EGGY toy. Only 1,000 poseable figures will be made and each one costs 500 yen ($4.50). Obscure, but very neat.
