Metal Gear Solid Delta: That’s why MGS 3: Snake Eater gets a remake first and not MGS1

metal gear solid delta: that's why mgs 3: snake eater

Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater is getting a remake called MGS Delta.

Metal Gear Solid Delta: Snake Eater was announced during the PlayStation Showcase last week. This means that fans of the series and everyone else can look forward to a remake of the third part. But why is Konami releasing Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater first and not the first Metal Gear Solid? Esports Extrasasked and we have the answer for you.

That’s what it’s about: As part of the PlayStation Showcase, the long and persistent rumors were confirmed. Konami is working on a remake of Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater. It’s called Metal Gear Solid Delta and will be released for PS5, Xbox Series S/X and PC. Here you can see the first trailer:

Why not a part 1 remake? Normally, the first part would be best suited for a remake as an introduction to the series. But Konami deliberately chose Metal Gear Solid 3 for the first reboot. There are two reasons for this, as has now been explained in response to a question from IGN:

  • Considered chronologically Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater is the first part, with it the plot of the series begins. The title takes place in the 1960s and we see the birth of the character Big Boss.
  • The fans wish apparently the strongest and most frequent remake of this installment – more than any other game in the series.

Why the delta? There was also an answer to the question about the name. Metal Gear Solid Delta: Snake Eater is so named because the delta fits the concept of a remake so well.

“The delta symbol (Δ) was chosen because its meaning fits the concept of the remake project. Delta is a letter from the Greek alphabet that represents ‘change’ or ‘difference’ in mathematics and variables, as well as meaning has to change something without changing the structure.”

Without Hideo Kojima: The creator of the series is not collaborating on the remake of his game Metal Gear Solid 3. Publisher/developer Konami and Hideo Kojima have been parting ways for a while. But some people are said to be involved in the remake who have also helped to develop other Metal Gear Solid games.


What do you think of the title and the reasons why Part 3 is getting a remake right away? What do you think of it being developed without Hideo Kojima?
