Konami has announced that Metal Gear Solid Touch, its iPhone spin-off of MGS4: Guns of the Patriots, will be released on the App Store this month in the US. A Konami representative told Eurogamer that it will follow in April in Europe.
The US release comes in the form of an 'Advance Edition' consisting of only twelve of the game's 20 levels. The remaining eight will follow later in a free update - how much later, we don't know.
Metal Gear Solid Touch is a simple shooter revisiting characters and locations from the last PS3 instalment of the series. "This commercial warfare adventure follows Old Snake across the Middle East, South America, Eastern Europe, and Shadow Moses as he depletes his enemies' stamina with various short-range and long-range weapons," says the press release.
