What did I tell you? Metal Gear Solid for the iPhone is indeed in the works. And not only that, in a press release issued by Konami today, it was revealed that aside from MGS Touch, Silent Hill Escape, Dance Dance Revolution and a game called Frogger was also scheduled for release on the iPhone platform very soon.
Starting late this month, Konami will make a total of 4 titles available for the iPhone, including the latest Metal Gear Solid, which will be Metal Gear Solid Touch (described by Konami as “an original game that brings to life the world and characters of METAL GEAR SOLID 4 GUNS OF THE PATRIOTS (MGS4)”.
The game Metal Gear Solid Touch will have 8 stages initially, providing users with direct control through the touch panel, and additional stages are to be added later.
Meanwhile, a first-person-shooter in the form of “SILENT HILL The Escape,” a Tap Tap Revenge competitor in the form of DanceDanceRevolution S Lite, and a simple game about frogs crossing roads called Frogger are also lined up for release.
All these games will be made available starting late December in Japan, North America, and Europe (except DanceDanceRevolution S Lite which will only be made available in Japan and North America). We’ll certainly be looking forward to making reviews of these new iPhone games from Konami, and so should you. See you in a few weeks, then.
