Metal Gear, the first game designed by Hideo Kojima, originally released in 1987 for the MSX2 home computer in Japan. The first game in the Metal Gear Solid franchise launched in 1998 for the PlayStation.
The latest game in the long-running franchise, Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain, was officially announced last month after months of speculation involving the trailer for The Phantom Pain.
Metal Gear Solid: The Legacy Collection is expected to launch in June in North America and South America. Pricing details have yet to be revealed.
