When the Steel Gear Stable 3 remake was revealed again in Might, all we received had been some photographs of a swamp and Bare Snake popping out of the water. A brand new trailer that debuted in the present day through the newest Xbox mini-showcase lastly offers us a have a look at the sport in motion, if solely briefly. And you recognize what? It seems actually good.
The remake will take the 2004 PlayStation 2 sport and overhaul it in Unreal Engine 5. Whereas that would run the danger of drastically altering the fashion and really feel of the unique Fox Engine model of the stealth motion sport, Snake’s environmental sneaking and silent takedowns look as characteristically Steel Gear as ever, and the graphics look manner higher.
Right here’s the brand new trailer:
The “first in-engine look” begins with Bare Snake trudging by a muddy river subsequent to a crocodile. Later we see him crouching close to some tall grass because the mud flicks off his garments and boots. From there we see him aiming a pistol, climbing throughout a cliff, grabbing a man from behind, and much and many glimpses of wildlife. As some followers famous, the brand new footage seems to verify that Snake can lastly transfer whereas crouching, not like within the authentic sport.
The sooner reveal trailer had the potential to be principally smoke and mirrors, however now this complete challenge is trying much more promising and actual. We nonetheless don’t have a agency launch date but, or a transparent concept of precisely who at Konami is engaged on it. Singaore-based artwork and outsource growth studio Virtuos helps with manufacturing. Konami additionally confirmed the remake will use the unique voice performances, however that authentic director Hideo Kojima and authentic artist Yoji Shinkawa are usually not concerned in any manner.
The corporate stated it needed to begin with remaking Steel Gear Stable 3 because it’s the origin story for Large Boss. If all goes will, it might imply we’ll ultimately get Unreal Engine remakes of Steel Gear Stable 1 and 2 as nicely. All three video games can at the moment be performed on the brand new Steel Gear Stable: Grasp Assortment, although the remaster anthology leaves loads to be desired.
