Some quick mod-post-ish stuff: Starting later this week, I will be away for about a week due to travel and moving. As a result, mgsnews will be on a two-week hiatus and will return to its normal updating schedule on July 8. Thank you for understanding.

  • Happy birthday to Revolver Ocelot, who turns 63 this week, on Thursday, June 6.
  • Konami Japan has big plans to celebrate the Metal Gear franchise's 20th anniversary this summer. Further details here; official site (Japanese-only) here. No word yet on whether North America, Europe, or Australia will get anything similar, but here's what Japan's getting:
    • A special bundle, set for release on July 26, containing the PS2 versions of the MSX games, the PS1 version of MGS1, the original PS2 versions of MGS2 and MGS3, Portable Ops, Document of MGS2, and the Metal Gear Saga DVD, with a list price of 5910 yen. [Edit: This week's KP Report podcast suggests that the PS2 games are Substance and Subsistence rather than Sons of Liberty and Snake Eater, despite the website indicating otherwise.]
    • A "Metal Gear 20th Anniversary Music Collection," with a release date of July 18 and a list price of 2800 yen.
    • Individual re-releases of MGS1-3 and PortOps (ranging from 1280 to 2400 yen), also on July 26.
  • Episodes 9 and 10 of the metalgearsolid.org podcast will be a retrospective of the entire MGS franchise to celebrate its upcoming 20th anniversary. You can be part of these podcasts by submitting your memories and impressions of various games in the franchise, including the MSX games and non-canon games like Ghost Babel and the Acid series.
  • Transcript of metalgearsolid.org's interview with the director of MGS:Philanthropy.
