The next Metal Gear is…for the iPhone apparently


Ok, I was wrong. A lot of you thought I was wrong at the time and you were right, I was wrong. Now that I’m done writing that wrong, let’s get down to business. The next Metal Gear is Metal Gear Solid Touch, presumably for the iPod Touch as well as the Jobs blower 2.0 itself.

Konami made the announcement in some sort of unreadable script rather reminding me of the import version of the original MGS game I had for a chipped PlayStation. Luckily, this time someone has been able to work out what the hell’s going on and apparently this is it…

“METAL GEAR SOLID TOUCH is an original game that brings to life the world and characters of MTAL (sic) GEAR SOLID 4 GUNS OF THE PATRIOTS (MGS4).

With direct control through the touch panel, it’s simple for anyone to move their alignment or switch to zoom mode.

Each stage’s location and characters are based on the story of MGS4. The initial download will contain 8 stages, with additional stages to be added later.

There are many ways to enjoy the game as points earned by clearing stages unlocks images and wallpapers from the METAL GEAR series.”

So there you go. Of course, there is still the danger that this translation is a lie and someone’s just been mucking around with Wingdings but then, I’m getting quite good at admitting I’m wrong. I’m sure I can manage it again.
