PlayStation Celebrates 28 Years Of Metal Gear Solid Games

We’re less than two weeks away from what may be the end of Metal Gear Solid games as we know it. With the well-documented departure between Hideo Kojima and Konami setting the gaming industry ablaze with fervor, Sony opted to go a different route. Perhaps entertaining Kojima-san with a show of admiration as he enters gaming auteurs’ free agency (where he stands alone), PlayStation Japan has released a special video titled, “A history of Metal Gear and PlayStation,” celebrating the games he’s brought to each of Sony’s main console platforms.

Unfortunately, the dialogue is in Japanese, meaning whatever is spoken remains a mystery outside of native speakers. That doesn’t mean that the Closed Captions translation won’t help with text, illustrating that it has been 28 years that have passed since the first Metal Gear title. The video covers all the fun aspects that make the Metal Gear Solid series unique, including the thrills that come from sneaking around inside and outside of cardboard boxes.

The main stinger is that one mystery remains: how a legendary hero like Big Boss can turn into a villainous source of evil. With the upcoming release of Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain on PS4 (also on PC and Xbox One), we should finally get some answers for that question. However, with Hideo Kojima and his penchant for retconning, convoluted storylines and triple-crossing characters, who knows if we will get all the answers we are looking for.

Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain hits stores on September 1st.
