Are The First Two Metal Gear Solid Games Getting A PC Re-Release?

Multiple games are suspected to receive a new PC release.

The Taiwan Digital Game Rating Committee has rated Metal Gear, Metal Gear Solid, Metal Gear Solid 2: Substance, and Konami Collector’s Series: Castlevania and Contra for PC.

Metal Gear first launched on the MSX in 1987, Metal Gear Solid was one of the PS1 classics (launched in September 1998, followed by a PC port in 2000), Metal Gear Solid 2: Substance (which launched on November 2002 on Xbox, December 2002 on PlayStation 2, and March 2003 on PC, respectively) was the expanded version of Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty (November 2001 on PS2). Konami Collector’s Series: Castlevania and Contra (which arrived in November 2002 on PC) became somewhat redundant, though as most games in it can be accessed via Castlevania Anniversary Collection and Contra Anniversary Collection. (The collection contains Castlevania, Castlevania II Simon’s Quest, Castlevania III Dracula’s Curse, Contra, and Super C).

The listing is so serious that each game has a screenshot included (mostly showing their respective title screen), and you can see them below. The weird thing is that Metal Gear 2: Solid Snake (MSX2, July 1990) is nowhere, even though it’s also an important part of Hideo Kojima’s plot. But we’re talking about the same Konami that had only two games in Silent Hill HD Collection (the second and the third game). They could have considered Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots (June 2008, PlayStation 3) for the PC, but no, it continues to be available exclusively on PS3…

Nothing is official yet, but we suspect that Konami will announce everything via the Tokyo Game Show broadcast, and let’s hope that these releases will not be geoblocked to Japan and Asia only.
