Will Metal Gear Solid: Snake Eater 3D Be An Actual Game?



The Metal Gear Solid: Snake Eater 3D – Naked Sample tech demo running on the Nintendo 3DS at E3, as we speak, is just that: a tech demo to show off the device’s stereoscopic abilities. Does this mean we’ll never see an actual Metal Gear game on the 3DS?


Not quite, according to Kojima Productions.


In a live stream where series director Hideo Kojima and other members of Konami answered fan questions, they replied in answer to that very question: “We’re going to see what people think and feel. What [Kojima] is going to do, is decide the right direction. This was more of a 3D depth presentation. The real game won’t be like that. Your eyes get tired.”


So a Metal Gear on 3DS isn’t quite confirmed just yet, but it isn’t off the table either.
