Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker Gets a Monster of a Surprise

1 min read


Announced in a press conference by in Tokyo – and let out of the bag a little earlier by Famitsu – is news of a rather interesting cross-overs that’ll be crossing over your PSP soon.

The first is done that’s been done before – there’ll be a collaboration with Assassin’s Creed’s Altair in the portable stealth game, as well as some Assassin’s Creed -styled mission for our moustachioed, uni-ocular hero. The second cross-over just seems to be a little out of place.

Monster Hunter is coming to Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker. Yeah, that’s what i thought too. The cross-over will see Snake takes on giant beasts from Capcom’s popular franchise like Tigrex, Velocriprey and more. It’ll also see a cameo from the series’ mascot, Felyne.

While I’m not quite an MGS fan, what i do like about the series – and Hideo Kojima’s warped brain – is that it never takes itself too seriously, and is always host to some rather off-the-wall ideas. Of course, the inclusion of Monster Hunter has guaranteed that Peace Walker will sell at least eleventy billion copies in Japan.

Editor. I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.
