The Metal Gear franchise was created by video game juggernaut, Hideo Kojima, and originally developed through Konami Group Corporation in 1987. The franchise has had an incredible history spanning every PlayStation and Xbox console and goes all the way back to the Commodore 64 8-bit home computer. While the PlayStation Showcase previewed a captivating trailer for the master collection, it was the Nintendo Direct event on June 21, which finally gave fans a release date of October 24.

The Metal Gear Solid franchise will likely benefit from this move, as the titles are all finally coming together to tell an entire story. It has been difficult for gamers to completely experience this series, since it has developed over more than 35 years of time. The Metal Gear Solid series is known to have a complex fictional story.

The storyline goes from 1964 in Snake Eater (Delta) to 2018 in Rising: Revengeance. This collection will hopefully provide the comprehensive plot that fans of the games have been wanting.

However, there is currently no word on when the second volume will be released.
