[Update] Snake Eater 3D demo sheds its skin on 3DS this week

Nintendo today confirmed a Metal Gear Solid: Snake Eater 3D demo would slither its way to the 3DS' eShop this week.

Update: Nintendo of America confirmed today that North American 3DS owners will be able to download the Snake Eater 3D demo on Thursday, Feb. 16.

Nintendo today confirmed a Metal Gear Solid: Snake Eater 3D demo would slither its way to the 3DS' eShop this week. It sounds like a good time to see if the game is worth yet another purchase, after the initial PlayStation 2 version got a re-release only a year after launching (Subsistence) and the more recent Metal Gear Solid HD Collection included the game as well.

Of course, none of those versions could be played on handheld, Nintendo device (in 3D, no less), so, well, there's that. You already know about the circle pad pro compatibility and that gorgeous, limited edition, snakeskin 3DS, so, I guess there's nothing else to see here. One interesting thing to be on the lookout for, though: Will this Snake Eater 3D demo "feature" limited playthroughs, just like the Resident Evil: Revelations demo? We'll see.

Snake Eater 3D hits shelves on Feb. 21.

I mean, MGS3 is one of the best games ever released. And the 3DS is quickly getting my attention as a repository for great old games. Starfox, Ocarina of Time, and now Metal Gear Solid 3. If they get Banjo Kazooie on there, I'm sold. Yeah, I know it will never happen. Okay, if they get Mother 3 on there, I'm sold.

I'd be all over it if I hadn't already bought the HD collection. Might give it a GameFly rental just to check out the 3D though.

Yeah, same with me. Only I didn't buy the HD mix, but just the collection. The HD mix was announced, like, a week after I picked up the collection.
