Metal Gear Solid 3 Remake: Voice cast, trailers, gameplay & platforms
What a thrill, the Metal Gear Solid 3 Remake has finally been announced after so much speculation, and there is plenty to be excited about if you're a fan of the original or have been dying to play it. The PlayStation 2 exclusive title has been relatively out of reach for nearly a decade at this point, but now we will soon have the opportunity to play the game all over again in remake form.
As arguably the most acclaimed of the Metal Gear Solid series - which is incredibly high praise - Snake Eater takes Big Boss back to his origins in the Soviet Jungle of the 1960s, with the heightened tensions of the Cold War and geopolitical defections at the forefront.
So, make sure to check out the rest of this guide below to find out everything we know so far about the Metal Gear Solid 3 Remake, including all of the latest trailers, voice cast details, platforms, and more.

Is there a release window for Metal Gear Solid 3 Remake?
Unfortunately, there is currently no information regarding a release window for Metal Gear Solid 3 Remake.
While the rumours have been circulating for quite a while now, that is still no indication of how soon the game is going to come out, and we might be waiting at the very least until late 2024 if no date has been shown yet.
At least we have the Metal Gear Solid Master Collection to tide us over soon, so you'll be able to catch up on the original before you jump into the remake.

Are there any Metal Gear Solid 3 Remake trailers?
There has been one trailer released so far for Metal Gear Solid 3 Remake, which is the one that was shown at the PlayStation Showcase in May 2023.
This is only a short trailer that takes us on a journey through the jungle, with animals progressively getting eaten by their larger prey, with the eventual reveal of Naked Snake's face within the shadows.
Hopefully, we will be able to get a more detailed cinematic trailer soon, and some gameplay footage too which shows off the graphical advancements of the remake. Unfortunately, this is all we have to work off of at this point in time.

Metal Gear Solid 3 Remake gameplay details
According to the official website, the development team of the Metal Gear Solid 3 Remake are working hard to 'make the game a faithful recreation of the original story and game design, while evolving the gameplay with stunning visuals and a seamless user experience.'
From this, we can infer that the tactical espionage action of the original will remain intact, with various quality-of-life improvements that will 'modernise' the game. This might not be to the taste of some fans of the original, but we will have to wait and see the extent of the changes once more gameplay details become available.
If you've never played Metal Gear Solid 3 before, however, its general gameplay structure is split between stealth sections and large set pieces. You will spend a fair amount of your time sneaking through the forests and jungles, silently taking down enemies or avoiding them altogether by using special tricks. There are also quite a few boss fights in the game, with some offering a more non-traditional experience than you might expect.
