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.

  • Thought Portable Ops was in it. Oh well, still getting it.

  • Must resist!! Why did I have to get the MGS games before this?!?!

  • Can't wait for MGS remake

  • Konami/Kojima, y u no put The Twin Snakes and Portable Ops?
  • Unfortunately already have most of these from the previous collection, but boy, that's a great steal for, what was it, jsut $40? Hopefully a lot more Metal Gear fans will result from such a prize package. Snake approves.

  • It's worth noting that even though a lot of Metal Gear games are excluded from the package, every canon release is included (Portable Ops' canon status is irrelevant at best, disputable at worst).

  • Can't wait Dammit!

  • Metal Gear Solid 1, 2, & 3 have probably the worst fixed camera since the original Resident Evil's; thus I refuse to beat them.

    Though Metal Gear Solid 4 was great.

  • TYPO: It's not "Metal Gear Solid 2: Snake's Revenge" It should be "Metal Gear 2: Solid Snake's Revenge"

  • Greatest videogame story ever told.....imho

  • I have just played MGS 4 so far and I have few questions.

    1. It's better to play MGS games from game with the oldest events in it to game with newest events, or from oldest release date to newest?
    2. Do you know any good web site about MGS?
    3. Is this complete list of digital software about Metal Gear?
    4. What does canon mean. That it's from official series or that has something from official series but it isn't from official developer?

    Thanks for answers.
  • That was beautiful! I think I got something in my eye, excuse me.

  • In a year of amazing games this coming collection makes me the happiest! :)

  • Those games bring back memories I never got the chance to play the original ones for the NES though, now at least there is something to keep me busy while I wait for MGS5.

  • I've never played a Metal Gear other than Revengeance. This seems like a steal.

  • Awesome

  • Awesome

  • Metal gear solid is still better than splinter cell!

  • Oh my God. That looks so sexy. I LOVE YOU, SNAKE!
