Earlier this month, we reported on a widely circulated rumor that Metal Gear Solid may be coming to the Xbox 360. Variations of this rumor suggested that Konami had, not an Xbox 360 title in store for the gaming world, but an iPhone/iPod Touch version as evidenced by the “mgst” in the teaser URL at Konami’s website. Those perceptive rumors ended up being spot on as Konami announced today the future availability of four new titles, including Metal Gear Solid Touch for the iPhone and iPod Touch. The four titles: Dance Dance Revolution S Lite, Frogger, Silent Hill The Escape and Metal Gear Solid Touch. The games are expected to be released according to the following schedule:
- Dance Dance Revolution S Lite : From Late December, 2008 in Japan and North America
- Frogger : From Late December, 2008 in Japan, North America, and Europe
- Silent Hill The Escape : From Late December,2008 in Japan, North America, and Europe
- Metal Gear Solid Touch : Spring, 2009 in Japan, North America, and Europe
This is great news for Apple and PS3 fans alike. PS3 owners can also take some consolation in knowing that their exclusive title, Metal Gear Solid, has not defected to the Xbox 360 platform while Apple fans can look forward to some hot new games hitting the iPhone and iPod Touch.
