Konami has released its long-awaited Metal Gear Solid Touch game for the iPhone and iPod touch. Despite the company’s prior indication that it would offer a special “advance release” edition of the game that would offer only the first half of the game, the App Store description of the game makes only a passing reference to its advance release nature. The final release version will include both halves of the game, and purchasers of the advance release edition will receive a free update to the final release, with the ability to carry over game save information. MGST is based on the Playstation 3 title Metal Gear Solid 4, and gameplay is handled via a multi-touch interface, with the ability to slide a finger for aiming, pinch gestures for zooming in and out, and taps for firing a weapon. Metal Gear Solid Touch is available now from the App Store and sells for $8.
