A Next Metal Gear Is… Metal Gear Solid Touch!

Remember that teaser site Konami and Kojima Productions launched earlier this month teasing a new Metal Gear game? Well it’s been activated this morning to officially unveil what “A Next Metal Gear Is,” and as many gamers guessed early on (myself included) the next Metal Gear is indeed Metal Gear Solid Touch for iPhone and iPod touch. Metal Gear Solid Touch will be released in Japan, North America and Europe in Spring 2009 as the final release in a series of four titles Konami will begin rolling out starting later this month, the other three titles being DanceDanceRevolution S Lite, Frogger and Silent Hill: The Escape.

MGST is an original game based in the MGS4 universe, featuring 8 initial stages and plans for additional stage add-ons after launch, a reward system for unlocking art and wallpapers, touch panel controls, and surprisingly impressive graphics as can be seen in the early screenshots you’re looking at right now.

Don’t own an iPhone, not an iPhone gamer, and have no plans to ever be one, but this game sure gives me the urge to take the plunge.

4 titles, including the newest in the METAL GEAR series will be progressively made available for download for the iPhone and iPod touch from late this month. [Konami]
