To celebrate the 35th anniversary of the Metal Gear series, Konami is continuing to re-sell classic games that were previously discontinued.
The Metal Gear series of games is widely regarded as one of the best stealth action titles the genre has to offer. They are classic games that have managed to attract a large number of die-hard fans even if they can be a bit silly at times. Silly moments in the Metal Gear games, such as turning a box into the ultimate hiding tool, have helped the series extend its 35-year lifespan. July 13, 2022 marks 35 years since the first Metal Gear game was released, and Konami is looking to celebrate the day.
It seems that the biggest thing Konami is trying to do to celebrate Metal Gear turning 35 is to reopen the sale of “suspended titles”. While Konami didn’t specifically say which titles will return, fans have assumed this means Metal Gear Solid 2 and Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater will once again be playable. Okay. This could also mean that the licensing issues that caused Metal Gear Solid 2 and 3 to be withdrawn from stores are over.
Everyone assumed the problem was temporary, but that didn’t stop fans of the series from worrying about not being able to play some of their favorite Metal Gear Solid titles anymore. Originally, all versions of both games were removed from digital stores in November 2021, meaning players had to wait eight months to see them again. Metal Gear Solid 2 and 3 are especially remembered by fans of the series, with both games being considered some of the best the series has to offer.
While many gamers will be happy to see the sale of these games resume, it is currently unknown when they will be available for sale from online stores. There was once a rumor about a Metal Gear Solid 3 remake that many fans will probably welcome since the final version of the game was released in 2011. With news of that, anyway. is still quiet and Konami has only confirmed older versions of the game will be available for purchase, it looks like we still have a long way to go before gamers get to see a remake of that game.
At least for now, many will be glad that Metal Gear Solid 2 and 3 probably won’t disappear from digital stores forever. While the fear of this seems to linger, with Ubisoft recently removing the online services for many of its games, a lot of gamers are now worried about the future of conservation. old video games.
