Metal Gear Solid 1 and 2 Have Officially Re-Released on PC Today
Konami has also brought over some classic Contra and Castlevania titles to join the Metal Gear Solid lineup on PC.
Rumors began swirling earlier this week that Konami was looking to bring some of its classic titles, most notably the first two Metal Gear Solid entries, to PC at some point in the future. Fortunately, it hasn’t taken long for us to learn that those rumors were indeed true.
Releasing via GOG today, Konami has now brought forward the original Metal Gear, Metal Gear Solid, and Metal Gear Solid 2: Substance to PC. While these titles have been on PC in the past, they haven’t been compatible with modern PC setups for quite some time.
In addition to these Metal Gear titles finally returning to PC, Konami has also thrown a bone to fans of its other franchises. KONAMI Collector’s Series: Castlevania & Contra has also landed on GOG today and contains five games in total across the two iconic series. The first three Castlevania games along with Contra and Super C can be found in this bundle if you’re looking to snag it.

All in all, none of these ports have been drastically upgraded or remastered, but it’s nice to see that Konami is showing love to its back catalog. In the case of the first two Metal Gear Solid games, I’m sure many will happily add them to their own PC library.
If you’re looking to snag these games for yourself today, Metal Gear Solid 1 and 2 will set you back $9.99. Conversely, Metal Gear and KONAMI Collector’s Series: Castlevania & Contra will cost $5.99.
