Metal Gear Solid Delta: Snake Eater, the remake of the critically acclaimed Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater, is a highly anticipated title. In the following hours of its announcement, plenty of information has been revealed about the project itself.
While we’re still not sure who is developing it, we can at least answer plenty of questions that we had after watching the reveal trailer. Here’s everything we know about Metal Gear Solid Delta: Snake Eater.
Metal Gear Solid Delta Is a Faithful Remake
First and foremost, Konami confirmed that the title is a “faithful recreation of the original story and game design while evolving the gameplay with stunning visuals and a seamless user experience.” This is the most important aspect of most remakes, as it means that regardless of the developer the story, game design, and characters will not change.
We’re not going to open up the game and see it turn first-person or anything of the sort, which is a big check in the box for MGS Δ to start.
The Original Voice Cast Will Return
Konami has also confirmed that the remake will have the original voice cast. This most likely means they will just bring back the original recordings, but I think any fan of Snake Eater would agree that is what everyone wants.
Creating an emotional and gripping narrative isn’t possible without the use of the voice acting found in the original game. There’s no sense in recasting anyone or recording lines for the same voice cast, so I was very happy to hear about this confirmation.
The Delta Symbol Means “Change”
Clarified in a tweet from the official Metal Gear account, we now know the reasoning behind replacing the “3” with “Delta”.
“The Delta symbol (Δ) was chosen because its meaning fits the concept of the remake project. Delta means “change” or “difference” without changing structure.”
This change seemed pretty obvious considering that the team probably wanted all players to be able to approach this remake without any knowledge (though that would be a TERRIBLE idea).
The Game Is Coming to PS5, XSX, & PC
Lastly, we know that the game is confirmed to be released on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC via Steam. It will not release on last-generation consoles or the Nintendo Switch. This is great news to hear as the team will be able to fully realize their vision with the use of the hardware available.
You can tell by the screenshots that were released that Metal Gear Solid Delta is a fantastic-looking game with sharp graphics and faithful recreation of the original. Additionally, it’s great to see that a remake of such a beloved and iconic title will be available on all platforms.
As we approach 2024, hopefully, we’ll be able to receive a new trailer showcasing gameplay, cutscenes, and of course, a release date. Stay tuned to Final Weapon for all the latest on MGSΔ: Snake Eater
