Konami has announced that it will be releasing three games for the iPhone and iPod touch based on well-known franchises. Set for release are Metal Gear Solid Touch, an original game based on the Playstation 3 release Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots, which coincidentally featured an in-game, licensed iPod, DanceDanceRevolution S Lite, based on the popular dancing game, and Silent Hill: The Escape, a first-person 3D shooter based on the survival horror series. DanceDanceRevolution S Lite and Silent Hill: The Escape are set for release in late December 2008, while Metal Gear Solid Touch is expected to be released in Spring 2009.

Wow, the iPod changed the music game and now it is really about to completely change the video world.  What’s next?

I wonder how big the download for Metal Gear Solid is going to be considering 80% of the typical game is cut-scenes.

I don’t think it’ll be absolutely monstrous size…after all the PSP version didn’t have the ZOMGWOW cutscenes that its console big brother had. But it was still cool and had voice acting.

I only hope they get David Hayter to reprise his role as Snake…as a MGS fan since the beginning, I’m REALLY looking forward to this, and hoping they don’t foul it up somehow…
