Kojima Production’s secret PSP title has been revealed to be another Metal Gear Solid game for the PSP – this time around, however, it is not based on Acid but will be a real-time action-stealth game.
Dubbed Metal Gear Solid: Portable Ops, the new game will feature an original storyline that follows the events of MGS3: Snake Eater, as Naked Snake establishes FOXHOUND to hunt down the FOX unit. Set in 1970, the game will be the missing link in the ongoing Metal Gear saga, as players get to learn more about returning characters like Para-Medic, Major Zero and Sigint. The story of the game will feature fully voiced cinmeatics and original artwork by acclaimed illustrator Ashley Wood.
Portable Ops will use an intuitive third-person camera mode optimized for handheld play. This time around, players will be able to recruit comrades to create their own fighting unit. Unique NPCs can be recruited depending on their actions in key situations. Bringing good news to on-the-go gamers, Portable Ops will feature wireless multiplayer, offering various modes and many levels. The multiplayer will see the introduction of a new “White Flag” system that will let players choose to surrender and live to fight again in each round or fight to the death until the next game begins.
No release date for the title was announced.
