As if Konami didn’t get Metal Gear Solid fans excited enough with the earlier announcements at their pre-E3 press conference that a Metal Gear Solid HD Collection is forthcoming,during the Nintendo press conference, more details regarding Metal Gear Solid 3D Snake Eater were revealed, along with a brand new trailer and a clutch of new screenshots. Hideo Kojima and his team have been working hard to transfer the stealth action experience into the third dimension, and with a raft of new features and control methods added to the game, this looks like it will be a whole new way to experience a classic title.
The newly-remastered game will include:
• Experience an all-new re-interpretation of Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater, previously released on PlayStation 2 with over 4 million copies sold, in 3D for the first time ever.
• Auto-stereoscopic 3D viewing capability that endeavors to create a rich jungle world with natural depth in settings of trees, rock/stone, water and more.
• ‘Photo Camo’ system utilizing the built-in camera technology of the hardware bringing customized stealth and camouflage options to the player. By snapping a photo in the real world, players will be able to use the same image as a camouflage pattern applied to Snake’s uniform within the game.
• Utilizing the Gyro Sensor, players will become one with Snake through specialized tilt mechanics throughout the game design. As Snake climbs trees, or traverses bridges and other environmental obstacles, players will be in danger of falling based on the balancing of the system.
• An intuitive menu utilizes the touch screen for quick and easy equipping of items and weapons.
If you can even manage to contain your excitement any longer, before running away from the computer screen joyously, check out the new images and trailer below, for more of the game in action:
Metal Gear Solid 3D Snake Eater will release sometime in winter 2011, exclusively on Nintendo 3DS.

If I'm not playing on a good Adventure Game - still longing for the long-past Golden Age of the genre, when Lucasarts and Sierra ruled supreme - you might find me searching for a local arcade, in the hopes that it still houses titles such as Sunset Riders or WindJammers.
