Upcoming Famitsu To Have Metal Gear Surprise

Word’s coming out of Japan that the next issue of gaming publication, Famitsu Weekly, will have some kind of surprise for fans of Metal Gear Solid.


No solid facts on what it is but rumours are aplenty that it may have something to do with the recently announced “The Phantom Pain” which has everyone speculating that it is in fact, Metal Gear Solid 5.

We’ll keep you posted.

“New 7 Days” Teaser Reveal At End Of iOS Port

Following the recent uproar by dedicated fans of Square Enix cult classic, The World Ends With You, over the port of the game to the iOS platform instead of the sequel that everyone was clamouring for, there are reports that there may be a silver lining, however faint it may be.

The ending for the iOS port apparently has a secret ending which can be seen above, which could be hinting at the possibility of a new game or just fanboy wishful thinking? But when you couple it with recent article in Famitsu Weekly, where they had a sit down with the director, Tatsuya Kando, he also mentioned the following: “We are in the middle of working on various things, but for now please enjoySolo Remix.”

Who knows, maybe the door hasn’t entirely closed on a sequel for TWEWY, just hopefully not on iOS again, please Square Enix.

PS3 Gets BlazBlue Chrono Phantasma

We’ve only just finished posting about BlazBlue Chrono Phantasma receiving it’s very own arcade cabinet now Ar System Works keeps the ball rolling with the announcement that the same game will be coming to the PS3.

The port was mentioned by Famitsu Weekly and doesn’t have a release date as yet, the PS3 release schedule merely says TBA but it should be a Winter release.

There is no mention of an Xbox 360 release but we’ll keep you posted.

Famitsu Metal Gear Solid Anniversary Cover

Yoji Shinkawa, the art director for the Metal Gear series, has designed an amazing cover for the current edition of Famitsu Weekly in Japan.

The cover is to commemorate Famitsu Weekly’s coverage for the Metal Gear Solid series reaching its 25th anniversary, feast your eyes on the amazing cover below.

Speaking through Enterbrain’s CEO in the article, Shinkawa said that he chose Cyborg Ninja and Solid Snake for the front cover as he believes they’re the two characters that really encapsulate the series and represent the games. The article also mentions how MGS4 will be receiving a Trophy update which has long been asked for by fans.

There is a budget version of MGS4 that will be released to stores in August and has the patch already built into the game so its thought that a download patch can’t be too far away for existing copies of MGS4.

The shot above shows another image from the feature article which illustrates the MGS timeline…what does it say for 2012? Could it be a new game? It could be a reference to Metal Gear Revengeance, we’ll have to wait and see.

Japandaman is trying to get a copy of this eagerly snapped up copy so fingers crossed we get lucky and get our own piece of history.
