So perhaps you’re reading all the stories about Metal Gear and the series’ 25th anniversary and thinking, “You know, the Metal Gear games are great, but I really wish I could play them while slacking off at my desk at work” or “in the drive-thru line at McDonald’s” or “on the can.” Don’t worry, you gamer who knows no boundaries, for GREE has you covered.
GREE, the Korean mobile gaming platform recently introduced in the States, has been knocking them out of the park upon their arrival here, with titles like a mobile version of Metal Slug and Resident Evil Vs. The platform has announced that it will develop a mobile Metal Gear game for a late 2012 or early 2013 release, titled Metal Gear Solid: Social Ops.
From what is known of the game, as reported by G4TV, it will pull different parts of storylines from previous games in the Metal Gear series. As is popular in Asian markets, a card-battling style will be used for portions of the game, as well as a section requiring you to build and protect Mother Base.
Metal Gear Solid: Social Ops will be designed by Kojima Productions and playable for the first time at this year’s Tokyo Game Show.
