Kojima Keeps Coins-Ops Alive With 'Metal Gear Arcade'

by John Constantine

Konami knows which side its bread is buttered on. The Hideo Kojima side! Kojima Productions fourth project announced at Konami’s press conference is “Metal Gear Arcade”, a brand new cabinet amusement based on “Metal Gear Online”. The game is currently only set to release in Japan but Konami hopes to release the game worldwide.

The cabinets were only shown in an incredibly small picture, but Kojima said that they would be networked across the country and feature specialized controls to reproduce the “Metal Gear Online” experience. Not only that, but the cabinets will be equipped with specialized goggles because the game will be 3D. 3D like sci-fi movies in the 1950s, not like polygons. Neat!
