Konami releases new Metal Gear Solid Touch screen shots; wait almost over

With Metal Gear Solid Touch dropping next Wednesday, Konami decided to push out one more round of screen shots in an effort to rekindle interest as the company prepares to finally release its first crack at MGS for Apple handsets. Konami also reiterated release details as follows:

A special ‘Advance Edition’ of Metal Gear Solid Touch containing the first 12 stages of the game is scheduled for release on the Apple iPhone and iPod Touch in March of 2009. The final release will follow with eight additional stages of gameplay, and will be available to existing players via a free update on the Apple App Store.

Metal Gear Solid Touch, officially announced back in December, had plenty of MGS fans excited until gameplay details were released. For one reason or another, interest quickly faded. Judging from the game trailer and screen caps however, MGST is going to be a pretty solid display of the iPhone / iPod Touch’s gaming capabilities as the title is fairly graphics-intensive for a mobile game. It will be interesting to see how MGST is received, especially at $9.99 a pop, when it finally drops next week. Recap: Metal Gear Solid Touch, meh, 12 levels on March 18th, eight more later, $9.99. Anyone excited or has the ship already sailed? Hit the jump for more screen shots.
