Do you love the Metal Gear Solid series but wish it came with more little plastic figurines and dice that your dog can eat? You're in luck. Today Konami announced a Metal Gear Solid version of the popular board game Risk.

If your childhood was marred by multi-day Risk sessions with your family like mine was, you'll be happy to know that the MGS-themed Risk is based on a streamlined version of the game introduced in 2008 -- though we doubt that will stop your siblings from cheating every time you get up to use the bathroom. The board game will introduce a few interesting twists to the classic Risk formula, including the mobile battleship, Outer Haven, which can attack from new locations on the map, reducing the importance of traditional bottlenecks found in the game. Risk: Metal Gear Solid Limited Edition will be available for presale on October 3 for $49.95.
