Practically sneaking onto Android today, Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty is now available on Android through the Nvidia Shield.
Originally released in 2001, Hideo Kojima’s sequel hit brought back fan favorite protagonist Solid Snake just to kick him out of the game after a few hours to tell the story of new recruit Raiden as he infiltrate’s an oil spill cleanup facility to save the U.S. President from a terrorist plot.
In case you were wondering, this is no port of the original PlayStation 2 classic that is running on Android technology. The recent release is from the HD Collection released back in 2012 for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PlayStation Vita. As such, this version runs at 60 FPS and 720p.
Recently in Metal Gear news, Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance, starring everyone’s favorite character Raiden, was revealed to be available through Xbox One’s Backwards Compatability feature.
