Solid Snake's next adventure will sidestep the "Xbox 360 versus PlayStation 3" debate by appearing on neither platform; instead, Konami's anthropomorphized Cold War allegory will be sneaking his way onto Apple's iPhone.
Metal Gear Solid Touch is scheduled for release in Spring 2009, reports Kotaku. The game is a completely original adventure set in the latter-day world of Metal Gear Solid 4 (read: Snake is a geriatric), and consists of 8 stages.
What would a Metal Gear Solid game be without unlockable content? Earning bonus points through gameplay will allow players to download special Metal Gear-themed iPhone wallpapers.
No price has been established for the title, though we expect to hear more details from Konami soon.
