Better Late That Never
Just when all hope of it ever happening had died out without so much as a whimper, Hideo Kojima has let slip that Metal Gear Solid 4 will be getting Trophy support in the near future. The news emerged from an interview with Famitsu, with the ever-dependable Andriasaag posting the report online.
The move will apparently coincide with the planned release of a new budget version of MGS4 in August. Fret not if you already own a copy of the game, as a patch will provide trophy support to previous buyers. It has not been confirmed if the trophies will be retroactive, so be prepared to do that 5-hour “The Boss” run all over again.
It was also revealed in the report that Konami plans to hold a special event on August 30th to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the Metal Gear franchise, with a special announcement on the cards. Kojima has hinted that this announcement will relate to previously shared vision of connecting people through a game, and that his “Transfarring” system will play a part in it all. We’ll be sure to keep you posted on any further news as it emerges.
