Nintendo to Release Snakeskin 3DS for Metal Gear Solid 3D

Nintendo to Release Snakeskin 3DS for Metal Gear Solid 3D on Nintendo gaming news, videos and discussion

Earlier this week Kojima Productions teased a new 3DS Metal Gear Solid hardware bundle and today revealed a little more.

Series creator Hideo Kojima today tweeted fans with a snippet of what to expect from the new hardware. Instead of being a regular 3DS with a standard logo slapped on the front, Kojima and the team are taking the branding a step further with a snakeskin 3DS.

Fortunately no actual snakes were harmed in the production of the new look hardware, instead it will take on a snake pattern embossed shell like the image below. Further details are expected on January 20th.

I can already see it coming, PETA making a website called "Snake kills Snakes!!". Smilie

I can forsee a worse headline "NINTENDO Kills Snakes" or "Nintendo Kids Subject to Snake Skin Torture".

Are you sure PETA cares about a snake? They're not that popular amongst the general population I don't think. Nobody trusts a snake. And they're not even fluffy.

Yep I am all over this!
