Metal Gear Solid Board Game is Real and It’s Coming

Metal Gear Solid Board Game is Real and It's Coming

When you think of Metal Gear Solid, chances are that you’re thinking of espionage, an enthralling soundtrack, and a storyline so convoluted, you don’t even know where to start. Soon, you’ll be able to bring that fun out of the digital realm as a Metal Gear Solid board game is in the works.

IDW Games announced in a blog post that the famed tabletop game maker is working with Konami to create Metal Gear Solid: The Board Game, which will adapt the iconic franchise into a miniatures game based on the first Metal Gear Solid game.

Specifically, IDW Games mentioned that the game would be “fully cooperative” among players as they take on the roles of Solid Snake, Meryl Silverburgh, Dr. Hal “Otacon” Emmerich, and Gray Fox. Each of the characters for each player will have their own unique skillsets and abilities as they “complete objectives across multiple campaign scenarios.”

Outside of that, the game will also feature “a highly dynamic A.I. system and sandbox gameplay,” and IDW Games also added that the game will allow players to take on missions in a variety of ways, with each encounter playing out differently.

While there is no specific release date for the game just yet other than a broad timeframe of 2019, IDW Games did mention that Metal Gear Solid: The Board Game will be showcased at E3 2019 and several other events afterward. This includes the likes of Origins Game Fair, Dice Tower Con, San Diego Comic Con, and Gen Con.

Pokdepinion: I’m not a big fan of adaptations mostly because it loses a lot of the charm from its original form. In this case, I am more curious than anything else. I definitely want to try it out if I could.
