Metal Gear Arcade is a game developed by Kojima Productions and published by Konami. The game was announced at Konami's E3 2009 conference, where it was revealed that the game would be a reworked, networked, coin-op iteration of Metal Gear Online.[1] It has a special interface that utilizes 3D goggles and tickets to unlock jewelry and other weapons.[2] It was released in Japan on December 20, 2010. It was removed from many arcades due to a lack of popularity,[3] although the arcade service itself did not end until December 1, 2016.

Development

Metal Gear Arcade was first hinted at in 2009 when Konami filed the trademarks Metal Gear and Tactial Online Action with the description "arcade games, namely, amusement game machines, coin-operated video games, electronic game machines."[4] Konami had released a list of titles that it would be showing at the 2010 AOU arcade game expo, though Metal Gear Arcade was not included on the list. Kojima Productions declined to comment to Kotaku on the status of the game.[5] The game was added to the list in mid February 2010 and the game's official website was also updated. The game was playable at AOU 2010 and featured 5.1 sound, a gun controller, and 3D head tracking goggles.

Unreleased and Unplayable Maps

Metal Gear Arcade's files contain two maps which were not playable. Both of these maps seem to be mostly finished, other than missing some elements such as AI paths. Icebound Inferno, which was featured in Metal Gear Online 2, was not available for play. Eastern Europe, a previously unseen map, is based on Act 3 in Metal Gear Solid 4. The lighting in this map is poor, which suggests that it wasn't quite finished.
