Metal Gear Solid Touch this week

Firm European date for iPhone game.

Konami has confirmed that Metal Gear Solid Touch, its iPhone and iPod Touch game, will be released on the European App Store this Thursday, March 19th.

We reported last week that it wouldn't be available until April in Europe. We were wrong; simple as that.

The game will cost EUR 4.99, which will probably mean a GBP 2.99 price tag. It will be an Advance Edition featuring the first 12 levels of the game, with the rest to be offered in a free update some time in the second quarter of this year.

The update will also localise the game in French, German, Italian and Spanish - Advance Edition comes in English only.

Gameplay follows the plot and locations of Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots, as Old Snake "depletes his enemies' stamina with various short-range and long-range weapons ".
