Metal Gear franchise sells more than 31 million since its inception

It's been 25 years since the original Metal Gear spawned from the mind of Hideo Kojima and launched on the MSX2. From then through right up until last year, the series has surpassed more than 31 million units sold. That's a whole lot of solid snaking, and Konami, Kojima and co. definitely deserve a nice round of applause and congratulations.

Of course, that number doesn't include sales for the recently released Metal Gear Solid: Snake Eater 3D, which launched on Nintendo's 3DS earlier this month. Also, I'm sure plenty more folks have purchased some copies of the Metal Gear Solid: HD Collection since Dec. 31 of last year, considering it only came out in November.

Konami included this nugget of info on its Japanese website, in a post detailing the series' inclusion in the Smithsonian's "Art of Video Games" exhibit, which is running from March 16 to Sept. 30 at the American Art Museum in Washington D.C. (More applause!)

Since Metal Gear is one of my favorite franchises of all time, I think I'll celebrate this bit of news by taking a drive up to D.C. to check out the exhibit... in a Shagohod.
