We’ve always thought the iPhone was a bit of a dark horse when it came
to its gaming abilities, but we never thought a proper video game would
grace it with its presence. Step forward PS3 favourite Metal Gear Solid to prove us wrong.
The franchise looks set to debut on the Apple smartphone and also its phoneless sibling the Ipod Touch. The news follows a teaser website which gave hardly any clues away but sparked mass speculation that the game was heading to the Xbox 360.
Developers behind the game Konami revealed the new game and said that "Metal Gear Solid Touch focuses on
action elements of Hideo Kojima’s classic stealth series, and will see
series veteran Solid Snake embark on an all-new mission."
"Using locations and characters introduced in Konami’s Metal Gear Solid 4:
Guns of the Patriots, Metal Gear Solid Touch initially offers eight action-packed
stages, with more to be added at a later date. The new title gives the player
control via the Apple systems’ touch panel, and also allows users to pan in
and out of the action. Replay value is also enhanced via bonuses such as wallpapers
and images that are attained by completing key elements within the game."
We hope with all these games coming out, a 32GB iPhone won’t be too far behind.
