KONAMI classics make their way to GOG today, where the Metal Gear series returns to PC with a restored Metal Gear Solid 2: Substance

From Press Release:

September 25th, 2020 – Today, three classic Metal Gear titles make a grand comeback on modern computers along with five other 8-bit classics!

The first title in the series is the all-time classic Metal Gear from 1987. Widely considered one of the first stealth games in history, Metal Gear is a stealth classic, and is an absolute must-play if you want to see the origins of the cult series. The second title in the series is a KONAMI hit from 1998 – Metal Gear Solid. This title continued to redefine the stealth genre with players taking the role of Solid Snake, on a mission to infiltrate a nuclear weapons facility to neutralise the terrorist threat called FOXHOUND, a renegade special forces unit.

After restoring classics like Blade Runner and Diablo, we bring you Metal Gear Solid 2: Substance in a version that is fully playable on modern computers. As an expanded version of Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty, Metal Gear Solid 2: Substance will find players can once again join Solid Snake and Raiden on their mission to stop the terrorist organisation “Sons of Liberty” from plunging the world into nuclear chaos!

Finally, we’ve prepared a real treat for retro gamers. With the Konami Collector’s Series: Castlevania & Contra now on GOG.COM, you have the unique opportunity to discover the roots of two classic series. This pack consists of five unique games from the 8-bit era: Castlevania, Castlevania II: Simon’s Quest, Castlevania III: Dracula’s Curse, Contra, and Super C. This means you receive five chances to save the universe in one!

Revisit and discover some of the best KONAMI classics now available on GOG.COM. Join Solid Snake, Simon Belmont, and other heroes on the quest to save mankind, while having many hours of fun in the process!
