It’s been years since Konami and Kojima Productions talked about adding trophy support to Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots. But finally, four years after the game’s original launch with all clamoring for such a patch having long since subsided, MGS4 is actually getting trophies.
The Konami and Metal Gear Solid Facebook pages have confirmed rumor reports that sprang up this morning stating trophy support would be introduced in a budget-priced MGS4 re-release coming out later this year. Alongside this new version, a downloadable update will be released to reward existing owners with the shiny virtual trophies they’ve been waiting so long for. Additional details about trophies and the budget re-release will be announced soon.
I don’t think the old saying “better late than never” could be any more appropriate. I’ve been wanting to go back for another MGS4 replay for a year or two now, and this will give me the perfect excuse to finally do so. Now if only we could get other developers to update trophy-deprived games. My most-wanted trophy list looks a little something like this (though I’m resigned to the fact that none of these will ever happen): Heavenly Sword, Folklore, Eternal Sonata, The Bourne Conspiracy, The Club, Viking: Battle for Asgard, Condemned 2 and Valkyria Chronicles.
