Speaking in a Famitsu iPhone special, Hideo Kojima’s confirmed Metal Gear Solid Touch will have an initial launch, topped up with more free levels afterwards.
The game will have, according to this AndriaSang summary of the interview, “20 stages. Of these, 12 stages will be available initially. After a while, Konami will distribute a full version of the game. Those who purchased the initial 12 stage version will be able to upgrade to the full version for free.”
The developer described the game as “simple, but solidly playable.”
There’s more through there, including first details of the iPhone version of Assassin’s Creed.
