All Articles: Metal Gear Solid: Snake Eater 3D
Nintendo is saving the majority of their eShop surprises for Christmas Day, but there are a few interesting odds and ends making their way to the company’s digital storefront today.
For example, Wii U owners can now tackle Mega Man Zero through the Virtual Console. Mega Man Zero was originally released for the Game Boy Advance in 2002 and is considered by fans to be one of the hardest games in the entire series. Retro gaming fans who own a Wii U might also want to check out Natsume Championship Wrestling, a Super NES game that was also added to the Virtual Console service today.
Elsewhere on the eShop, Konami has finally made Metal Gear Solid: Snake Eater 3D available to download. The 3DS port of Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater was originally released for the handheld in 2012.
More details on all of these games (as well as a few more) can be found after the break. (more…)
After appearing on the NES, Super NES, Game Boy Color, Game Boy Advance, and the Wii, Mario’s first super adventure is making the jump to the 3DS. That’s right, Super Mario Bros. is available to download from the 3DS eShop today.
Also available on the 3DS eShop today is a free demo of Metal Gear Solid: Snake Eater 3D.
Another classic game invades the Wii Shop as the Sega Genesis version of Strider has been added to the Virtual Console. And in non-game news, a Hulu Plus app is now available for the Wii. After signing up for a $7.99 a month subscription, Wii owners will have access to current season episodes of a ton of great TV shows, along with classic movies and shows.
Finally, there’s iSpot Japan, a DSiWare title that “takes you on a journey across the Land of the Rising Sun, explaining facts and curiosities about Japanese culture while you play a classic “spot the difference” game in the country’s most beautiful locations.”
Naked Snake returns for his first ever 3DS adventure, Metal Gear Solid: Snake Eater 3D, on February 21.
More or less a straight port, the 3DS remake of Metal Gear Solid 3 features an exclusive “camouflage photography system” that will allow players to create their own camo patterns for Snake. Using the 3DS’ camera, these patterns can also be taken from real world pictures.
In other words, how long do you think it’ll be before Naked Snake becomes, quite literally, a naked Snake?
Metal Gear Solid: Snake Eater 3D will also support the upcoming 3DS Circle Pad Pro. The add-on’s second stick will be used to assist players with targeting the minions of Cobra Unit.
While it didn’t get a mention during their 3DS Conference, Nintendo has confirmed the 3DS Slide Pad will be released in Japan on December 1. The add-on analog stick will carry a $19 pricetag by itself with a Monster Hunter Tri G bundle rumored to be available as well. An American release date and pricing have yet to be announced.
However, a quick look at the list of games that support the world’s weirdest peripheral makes a Pacific crossing for the 3DS Slide Pad a very definite possibility:
- Ace Combat 3D: Cross Rumble
- Dynasty Warriors Vs
- Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance
- Metal Gear Solid 3D: Snake Eater
- Monster Hunter Tri G
- Resident Evil Revelations
The only question is, will the 3DS Slide Pad be required to play any or all of these games or will it be optional? And if it is required, what kind of “we’re sorry” program is Nintendo going to roll out then?
