At the recent PlayStation Showcase, Konami revealed that it is not only remaking Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater for modern platforms but that it will also be releasing a new compilation called Metal Gear Solid: Master Collection Vol. 1.

The compilation will contain the first three Metal Gear Solid games (Metal Gear Solid, Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty, and Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater), and comes nearly two years after the removal of the HD Collection from digital storefronts due to licensing issues related to the use of historical footage.

As spotted by Destructoid, it appears these aren't the only games the compilation will contain either, as a recent PlayStation store listing revealed the collection will also feature the 1987 MSX2 title Metal Gear that started it all, as well as the 1990 follow-up Metal Gear 2: Solid Snake.

The two MSX2 games were previously featured as a playable bonus in Metal Gear Solid 3: Subsistence in the mid-2000s, as well as in the Metal Gear Solid: HD Collection released in 2011, so it's not entirely surprising to see them included here. Nevertheless, it's great to have some confirmation about their inclusion.

Metal Gear Solid: Master Collection Vol. 1 will go on sale later this year in Autumn 2023.
