With Metal Gear: Rising having gone quiet, Metal Gear fans are likely wondering when they can expect the next franchise outing. While it might not be an entirely new game, reports from French website JVN seem to indicate that the next Metal Gear game will be a re-release of Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker for the PlayStation 3.
Originally released on the PlayStation Portable, and widely considered one of the best games for the platform, Peace Walker follows legendary soldier Big Boss as he establishes the legacy that would live through Solid Snake's saga. If true, this re-release would include controls adapted to the Dual Shock 3 controller, as well as upgraded visuals.
While this might rate as a rumour for the time being, the gossip coincides with the announcement of Monster Hunter Portable 3rd HD and Sony's plans to run a line of software known as PlayStation Portable Remastered, which would include 1080p versions of popular PlayStation Portable titles re-released on PlayStation 3.
Could Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker for PlayStation 3 be on the way? We'll no doubt find out more at E3 2011.
