All Things Metal Gear

Hideo Kojima and the rest of the MGS gang are back for not one, not two, but THREE Metal Gear Stuff for us hard pressed fans.

At the current E3 Gaming Summit, fans of the long time title witnessed new trailers for Metal Gear Arcade, Metal Gear Rising and Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker

Metal Gear Arcade:

(From CBR)

Coming to arcades in Japan later this year, “Metal Gear Arcade” will bring the “Metal Gear Online” experience to the coin-op crowd. The game will be presented in 3D, and players will don goggles inside enclosed arcade cabinets. The “eKonami” system will allow machines in different arcades to link to one another for competitive play. Sadly, no information was given about a US release. With the thriving arcade system over here, it's only a matter of time, though.

Metal Gear Solid Rising

A new “Metal Gear Solid” starring Raiden was announced by Kojima himself at the Microsoft keynote, finally bringing the franchise to the Xbox 360. The quick teaser shown didn't reveal much outside of Raiden, but Kojima did say this was a “completely new Metal Gear experience,” and he also said it's currently in development. There was no announcement of exclusivity, so this is likely to be a multiplatform release. Check out the trailer here.

Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker

During the Sony keynote, Kojima talked about the new MGS game that will be coming to the PSP, telling fans it was an all-new game set 10 years after “Metal Gear Solid 3,” and the story involves Outer Heaven. The game is slated for 2010. You can see the E3 trailer here.
