Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater HD Receives Nvidia Shield Release

Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater HD has officially sneaked its way on to the Nvidia Shield TV, Konami announced today.

The action-adventure stealth title is a 4.1 GB download on the Google Play Store and its launch price is set at $9.99 (£7.50).

Snake Eater HD requires a Nvidia Shield and Shield controller, as well as a 720p HD resolution to support the title’s display.

It follows on from the release of Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty HD for Nvidia Shield earlier this year.

Metal Gear Solid 3 first launched in North America and Japan in 2004, which was soon followed by a release in Europe and Australia in 2005.

Originally an exclusive for the PlayStation 2, Snake Eater took fans of the series back to the 1960s and had them take control of FOX agent Naked Snake.

Metal Gear Solid 3 received universal acclaim from critics, along with becoming an instant fan-favorite title for many fans of Hideo Kojima’s stealth series.

It has since been re-released in multiple variations over the past decade, from being part of the Metal Gear Solid HD Collection and Metal Gear Solid: The Legacy Collection to its Nintendo counterpart of Metal Gear Solid: Snake Eater 3D.

Last year, images surfaced of Metal Gear Solid 3 running on a pachinko machine. Konami rebuilt the Metal Gear Solid 3 pachinko visuals using the Fox Engine, the same engine that powered Hideo Kojima’s Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes and Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain.
