Metal Gear Solid debuted a gorgeous brush-stroke style art style which later went on to become one of the series’s defining characteristics, linking artist Yoji Shinkawa with the franchise forevermore. For the 25th anniversary of the very first Metal Gear, the series’s Facebook page has promised the artist is preparing a “very special surprise”. Obviously we have no idea what it is, but the post calls for questions, so perhaps an interview or video profile, or even a livestream of a work in progress.
Thanks, All Games Beta.

The game is the next chapter in Snake’s story and a direct sequel to Snake Eater.
“Metal Gear Solid fans should prepare themselves for the next chapter of Snake’s story,” said Hideo Kojima in the PR. “[The game] will answer many of the series’ unanswered questions and showcase a different, more collaborative side to tactical espionage. May is when Snake’s story continues…”

According to a post on ShockTillYouDrop, Resident Evil movie director Paul W.S. Anderson is still cracking the whip on the Castlevania movie. Or at least, he’s trying to. Apparently, directing a movie’s a bit of a stretch without a script, or so we’ve heard.
“Producer Jeremy Bolt told us this morning that Paul W.S. Anderson is still circling video game adaptation Castlevania at Rogue Pictures and that they are waiting on a script,” said the site.
Meanwhile, Anderson’s also expressed interest in helping Solid Snake infiltrate the big screen. If “directing” in this case means “letting David Hayter write the script, choreograph all the scenes, choose the cast, and play Solid Snake,” then we’re cool with this.
How about you?

Not the original Metal Gear Solid, mind you. That sort of already happened. No – Kojima’s all for a remake of Metal Gear’s humble, comparatively cutscene-free beginnings. One teensy problem, though: Kojima’s booked solid for – oh – the rest of his life at the moment.
“It doesn’t have to be me who makes it,” Kojima suggested in an interview with Kotaku. “I made it a long time ago. It could be somebody young that maybe has more abilities than I do….It would even be good if a foreign production team even did it.”
So, who would you like to see give 8-bit Snake a modern makeover? We’re thinking Rocksteady. After Arkham Asylum, just imagine what the developer could do with Metal Gear’s blend of stealth and action.

Konami announced today that Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots has joined the PS3 Greatest Hits Collection.
On June 16, the game will be made available at retail for the new price of $29.99.
Press release is after the break.

The teaser site over at Kojima Productions is scheduled to reveal what is in store for us later this evening, but that has not stopped a Japanese 7-Eleven e-Commerce database from claiming it’s a Metal Gear game.
Its listing mentions upcoming issues of trade magazines offering coverage of the MGS games, specifically pointing out Famitsu PSP+PS3.
Other than implying that the game is Sony only, the listing also mentions that the magazines are slated to hit retail on May 30.
Over on the Kojima site, there’s just over six hours left before another bit of tease is added, or we get a full reveal.
Maybe it will at least shed light on the “5″ that pops up with the lightening. Or it could be an “S”.
We don’t know, really. But it’s killing us.
