metal gear solid: twin snakes

Nintendo Co. Ltd. and Konami Corp. today jointly announced Metal Gear Solid: The Twin Snakes exclusively for Nintendo GameCube. Under the guidance of Konami's Hideo Kojima and Nintendo's Shigeru Miyamoto, Twin Snakes is currently being developed by Silicon Knights. Nintendo fans will remember the second-party developer's award-winning Eternal Darkness: Sanity's Requiem for Nintendo GameCube. While featuring an updated graphics engine, Twin Snakes will stay true to the epic storyline of the original Metal Gear Solid.

Commenting on Nintendo's new relationship with Konami, Shigeru Miyamoto stated, "Mr. Kojima and I have spoken about this project for some time, and I'm excited our ideas have matched so perfectly. It's this shared passion for game creation that has allowed us to collaborate to bring a special Metal Gear project exclusively for Nintendo GameCube." Hideo Kojima, Vice President of Konami added, "I am tremendously excited to introduce a unique Metal Gear Solid experience to a new audience of gamers as well as collaborate with my mentor in game design, Mr. Miyamoto, on Metal Gear Solid The Twin Snakes for Nintendo GameCube."

The Metal Gear Solid series has continually set new benchmarks for the action videogame genre. In a deep plot of espionage and intrigue, players take on the role of agent Solid Snake,  using an arsenal of high-tech weapons, gadgets and supplies to stealthily maneuver through hostile territory while meeting objectives and defeating adversaries. Since the series' inception, Metal Gear Solid has sold more than 11 million units worldwide. The latest in the Metal Gear Solid series, Twin Snakes will be on display at the Electronic Entertainment Expo in May. The game is scheduled to ship later this year in North America and Europe, followed by the Japanese launch in early 2004. Twin Snakes will be published by Konami.
