Konami has announced the first volume of the Metal Gear Solid: Master Collection will release for PS5 on 24th October 2023. As confirmed in today's Nintendo Direct, the compilation brings the original PS1 version of Metal Gear Solid along with the PS3 remasters of Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty and Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater to Sony's current-gen system. The MSX and NES versions of Metal Gear, Metal Gear 2: Solid Snake, and Metal Gear: Snake's Revenge will also be included.

A new trailer embedded above features footage from all three Metal Gear Solid titles to give you a proper idea of what to expect from the collection, and you're even getting some graphic novels and a soundtrack bundled in too! Pre-orders are going live today, with the price set at £49.99 / $59.99.

A physical version of the Master Collection has been confirmed, which will cost the same as the digital edition: £59.99. Pre-ordering the game nets you a digital soundtrack containing "newly recorded, orchestral renditions of the iconic themes from the Metal Gear Solid series including The Best Is Yet to Come, Can't Say Goodbye to Yesterday, and Snake Eater".

The obvious elephant in the room here is the Master Collection is releasing during a very busy period. The likes of Alan Wake 2 and Marvel's Spider-Man 2 release meer days before it. Will you make room to revisit these classics? Let us know in the comments below.
