Video: Metal Gear Solid Arcade 3D in action

We’ve covered Metal Gear Solid 3D (whose first playable version was announced by Konami last week) twice so far, and now it’s time to look at the game in more detail. Konami is still in the middle of optimizing the gameplay (which is based on Metal Gear Online) and hasn’t fixed a release date yet.

In the video embedded below, you can see a model holding a gun in her hands and wearing the “VR” 3D goggles, the main selling point of the title. Your viewpoint in the game changes in line with the direction your head (in reality) is facing. There’s an analog stick on the gun, which allows you to move in the game independent of where you look in reality, too.

As we reported before, you need to cooperate and communicate with other players to advance in the game, which offers 5.1 sound to give you that extra-realistic feeling of being engaged in combat.
