Metal Gear Solid 3 trailer
E3 trailer released for download. Available via Eurofiles.
It had been available for a while in streaming video format, but we thought you might like to know that Konami has finally popped up a 45MB Windows Media format video of its sterling Metal Gear Solid 3 trailer from E3 this year. It's about fourteen minutes long, and a must-watch for MGS fans keen to find out what's going on in the latest instalment in Hideo Kojima's sneaking series. We've mirrored it at Eurofiles. Download away.
The trailer, which is dissected in some detail as part of our massive E3 Trial Version write-up, introduces a few familiar and not-so-familiar faces, and demonstrates sections from later on in the game that we've yet to play - including a mountainside showdown with a missile-toting chopper. Watch it and you'll also catch first sight of the original Metal Gear, and see the chief bad guy in this story trying to figure out whether a young Raiden look-alike really is a bloke - something that harks back to an encounter midway through MGS2, for those who don't get it.
Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater is due out exclusively on PS2 in the States this year, although it appears that European gamers will have to wait until early 2005 to get their hands on it.
