Konami’s slow step towards relevance?
Man, we really miss Metal Gear Solid, especially the bits where you sneak around and finish a stage undetected without any fatalities. How far has Konami gone off the deep end with their latest Metal Gear game I wonder?
If you miss those days, you can re-enact them when Konami’s Metal Gear Solid-themed real-life stealth game opens 12th September in Shinjuku, Tokyo (via Mystery Circus, Anime News Network). Basically, players sneak into Shadow Moses and avoid detection to destroy a Metal Gear. A team of up to three players have access to the patented Codec to get mission briefings and clues to tackle the scenario.
But beware: if the guards spot you, they will raise the alarm and shoot you on sight. Your vest will register the hits; if you get hit, the duration of play gets shorter and shorter. And if you run out of time: mission failure!
We have more details:
- Playtimes for this range from 15 to 45 minutes.
- Tickets are 3,800 yen per person. Continues are 800 yen; they amount to an additional 10 minutes of play.
