Metal Gear Solid 3D demo coming to 3DS eShop this week

We're intensely curious about how the 3DS port of Metal Gear Solid 3 turned out -- curious and worried -- and we're happy to have the chance to try it out without financial outlay. Nintendo is delivering on its promise of a Snake Eater 3D demo in North America this Thursday.

Players will get to experience the beginning of the "Virtuous Mission," in which Naked Snake sets out through the jungle on a rescue mission. If you have a Circle Pad Pro, you'll want to connect it for this.

Konami Digital Entertainment, Inc., has announced a playable demo version of its eagerly-awaited METAL GEAR SOLID SNAKE EATER 3D for Nintendo 3DS™ will be available as a free download via the Nintendo eShop across North America on February 16th.

With the full version scheduled to be released in North America on February 21st, 2012, the METAL GEAR SOLID SNAKE EATER 3D demo will allow users to experience the immersion of exploring its incredibly detailed jungle setting. The demo showcases the opening segment of the game, with series hero Snake picking a path through the swamps and foliage of a Soviet jungle in search of an imprisoned scientist.

Players will also be able to experiment with the unique camouflage elements that allow Snake to blend in with his surroundings, and familiarize themselves with the close-quarters combat techniques used to quietly neutralize guards.
