Metal Gear Solid: The Legacy Collection

A Speed Run Through History

There are eight games in Metal Gear Solid: The Legacy. That's just about half of the titles that have been released under the Metal Gear banner. This new collection brings together some of the best in the series.

In addition to the eight games, two graphic novels from artist Ashley Wood are in the package. Here's what's included:

  • Metal Gear (NES)
  • Metal Gear 2: Solid Snake (MSX)
  • Metal Gear Solid (PlayStation)
  • Metal Gear Solid: VR Missions (PlayStation)
  • Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty (PlayStation 2)
  • Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater (PlayStation 2)
  • Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots (PlayStation 3)
  • Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker HD (PlayStation 3, Xbox 360)
  • Metal Gear Solid: Digital Graphic Novel
  • Metal Gear Solid 2: Digital Graphic Novel

Curious what's not included? Here's the list of the other Metal Gear title (excluding the mobile games):

  • Metal Gear Solid 2: Snake's Revenge (NES - North America Only)
  • Metal Gear Solid: Ghost Babel (Game Boy Color)
  • Metal Gear Solid: The Twin Snakes (GameCube)
  • Metal Gear Solid: Acid (PlayStation Portable)
  • Metal Gear Solid: Acid 2 (PlayStation Portable)
  • Metal Gear Solid: Portable Ops
  • Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance

This trailer comes hot on the heels of news this week that series creator Hideo Kojima would entertain an outside studio remaking Metal Gear Solid. This morning, Just Add Water (responsible for the delightful remake of Oddworld: Stranger's Wrath) stepped up and offered its services

Metal Gear Solid: The Legacy Collection arrives on July 9, 2013 only on PlayStation 3.

Comments
  • Pre-ordered!
  • Snakes revenge was not kojima's work.

    The twin snakes was actually metal gear solid 1 remade for the gamecube

  • If Kojima san really loved us, he'd port this and MGS4 to the xbox.
  • This is one of my favorite series. The deep and complex stories make it unrivaled. Even if you don't get this Legacy collection, you need to play MGS3. It is by far the best in the series imo. Seeing how Snake (not Solid) becomes Big Boss is just an amazing journey.
  • so many metal gear games i wish i played them all

  • *** ***, why can't they make this multiplatform? If they are doing that with the series, they need to start already. Why are 2,3, and PW HD on 360 but no other collection is? Ah well, here's to the potential MGS HD remake coming to multiple systems.
  • As Naked Snake once said after eating a snake: That's damn good.

  • For people complaining....METAL GEAR RISING iiisssss a MG Title!!! If you dnt like to play other stories then thats your problem people. Raiden in MGR does the same things he did on MGS4, nothing is different. Is just his own story after that.

  • I'd like a console version or port of Ac!d. I really also liked Ghost Babel a lot (sans the conveyor belt maze).

    I own everything in those lists in some form with the exception of portable ops.

  • Even though I am stoked as hell to get this, it saddens me that Kojima will never make another iteration of this theme again.

  • Very cool MGS collection.  I'll have to pick this up sometime when its a tad cheaper.

  • I already have mine pre-ordered now I just need to play the waiting game or The Last Of Us. I haven't decided yet

  • I have the hd collection for 360 and I've heard tell that metal gear 1 and 2 are unlockable in mgs2 substance and, therefore, mgs2 hd. Does anyone know how to unlock it? I can't find it anywhere in the menus and I've checked countless websites looking for answers.
  • That will be money will spent

  • Even though I already have these games I'll still pick this up to add to my collection. I kinda wished it included portable ops since it has important plot points.

  • Its not the NES version, its the MSX one. C'mon Mike, get your head in the game

  • I would've liked to see Twin Snakes and Portable Ops as well, but one can hardly complain with this great showing. And Revengeance just came out not too long ago, so I'm not surprised that it wasn't included. With V and Ground Zeroes on the horizon- things are looking strong for MG.

  • really wish this would come to xbox I already bought the "other" MGS Collection.

  • gonna get that game.

  • "Metal Gear Solid 2: Snake's Revenge"

    "Metal Gear Solid: Acid"

    "Metal Gear Solid: Acid 2"

    Hah very clever, Futter...or am I giving you too much credit?
