The Nintendo Direct of June 2023 gave fans a lot to look forward to for the future of the Switch. With a remake of Mario RPG, a brand new 2.5D Mario game, and more information on Pikmin 4, fans can rest assured that Nintendo has many plans lined up. One of the best Nintendo Direct announcements was the confirmation that Metal Gear Solid would appear on the handheld console. Actually, there is more than one Metal Gear Solid game coming! Here are all the Metal Gear Solid games launching on the Nintendo Switch.
Every Metal Gear Solid Game Coming to the Nintendo Switch
Nintendo Direct confirmed that the Metal Gear Solid: Master Collection Vol. 1 arrives on October 24, 2023. This collection will include Metal Gear Solid, Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty, and Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater. Besides these heavy hitters, the package will include more classics such as Metal Gear and Metal Gear 2: Solid Snake — the entries that started and made the series famous.
The list goes on. The package will also include the NES versions of Metal Gear and Snakes Revenge. So, there will be 7 Metal Gear games coming to the Nintendo Switch in 2023.
The three mainline MGS games will be available separately in the Nintendo Eshop if you want to purchase them alone instead of the whole package.
