[Happy Birthday!] Snake’s Revenge

Hello old games lovers,

What happens when you have a successful game like Metal Gear and you’re uncertain about the road you have to take for the sequel? It’s easy, you do it “Konami way”, you develop two sequels! But while Metal Gear 2: Solid Snake came out only in July and only for MSX, Snake’s Revenge came out in April 1990 on the par excellence platform, the NES and developed by the same guys behind Castlevania: a real seal of quality. Snake’s Revenge is actually considered a spin-off in Metal Gear series while Solid Snake is the official sequel, but for us western players this has always been the spiritual successor to the first immortal Metal Gear, so why don’t you pop it into your NES for Easter?

Buongiorno retroamici,

Cosa succede quando si ha un gioco di successo come Metal Gear e si è indecisi sulla strada da intraprendere per il seguito? Semplice, si fa “alla Konami”, si fanno due seguiti! Ma mentre Metal Gear 2: Solid Snake uscì solo in Luglio e solo per MSX, Snake’s revenge uscì nell’Aprile 1990 sulla piattaforma per eccellenza, il NES e sviluppato dallo stesso team dietro a Castlevania: insomma, una garanzia di qualità. Snake’s Revenge è in realtà considerato uno spin-off della serie e Solid Snake è il sequel ufficiale, ma per noi occidentali è sempre stato questo il vero seguito del primo immortale Metal Gear, quindi perchè non riprenderlo in mano per Pasqua???
