Konami held a big Metal Gear Solid event today, as part of the gameâ€™s 25th Anniversary celebrations, during which it revealed that it will be launching a Metal Gear Solid game for smartphones and tablets later in the year, called Metal Gear Solid: Social Ops. Pocket Gamer reports that the game is a fully 3D game for the GREE platform, and is powered by the Unity engine. In typical Konami fashion, the legendary company is not giving too much away about the game yet, save to say that you will have to cooperate with other players if you want to vanquish Metal Gear. However, the art accompanying the announcement will make a lot of Metal Gear Solid fans very happy, as it reveals who will be in the game, and clearly features all the fan favourites that you can think of, such as Snake of course, old Solid Snake, Raiden, Meryl, Olga, Eva, and a few others I can spot there too, possibly Liquid. This is going to be fantastic! As Pocket Gamer notes, specific mobile platforms have yet to be announced by Konami for the game, but I think we can safely assume that iOS will be one of the main platforms that the game will be designed for.
