Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater remake has officially been announced by Konami during the PlayStation Showcase.

Originally released in 2004 for the PS2, Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater is considered by many to be the finest instalment of Hideo Kojima’s beloved action-stealth series. Though it’s a shame that Kojima-san isn't involved in this remake, that’s a topic for a different day.

The original MGS3 improved on its predecessor in almost every way, introducing a variety of camouflage to keep you hidden from the enemy in the dense Tajikistan jungle, an injury-and-treatment system, enhanced CQC and much more. Yet, this modern remake looks to make a great game even greater.

"We are working hard for METAL GEAR SOLID Δ: SNAKE EATER to be a faithful recreation of the original story and game design, while evolving the gameplay with stunning visuals and a seamless user experience," said Konami in a statement.

When Konami announced the Silent Hill 2 remake, it felt a little odd that they skipped the first Silent Hill game. Yes, we know the OG game was technically remade for the PS2, PSP and Wii with Silent Hill: Shattered Memories, but let’s face it, while that game had some decent ideas, it wasn't great and it certainly wasn't a proper Silent Hill game. I think most of us could agree that we’d love to see the original game receive a proper remake.

However, remaking Metal Gear Solid 3 for this generation makes a lot of sense, mostly because it’s actually a prequel to the mainline series set in 1964 during the midst of the Cold War.

So in theory, with MGS3 taking place 31 years before Metal Gear Solid, perhaps we could eventually see the original game receive another remake, and go from there. It's also interesting that the number '3' hasnt been used in the title, instead we get a triangle. So could the removal of a number indiacte that Konami is considering this to be the new MGS1 of sorts? Only time will tell.

Oh, and we’re also getting a Metal Gear Solid Master Collection Vol.1 which includes MGS1, MGS2 and MGS3 coming this August. As this is a Vol.1, it's probably safe to assume that further collections will be on the way at some point. No exact platforms have been announced, but Konami said in a statement that it will be available "on the latest platforms."

Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater remake will be released on PC, PlayStation 5, and Xbox Series X|S. No release date has been revealed at the time of writing.
