EL SEGUNDO, Calif. - Feb. 23, 2009 - Konami Mobile has released the first look at gameplay for the highly anticipated Metal Gear Solid® Touch, the next installment from the top-selling videogame franchise. Developed by Kojima Productions and designed exclusively for the iPhone™ and iPod® Touch, Metal Gear Solid Touch covers the final chapter in the legendary saga of Solid Snake.

In Metal Gear Solid Touch, players join forces with Old Snake as he battles the money-driven mercenaries of Private Military Companies (PMCs), Haven Troopers, Gekko, and the beautiful yet terrifying bosses of the B&B Corps. This commercial warfare adventure follows Old Snake across the Middle East, South America, Eastern Europe, and Shadow Moses as he depletes his enemies' stamina with various short-range and long-range weapons. Featuring twenty levels of gameplay and well-known antagonists from past Metal Gear Solid titles, Metal Gear Solid Touch brings the stealth-action franchise to the iPhone and iPod Touch for the first time.

A special 'Advance Edition' of Metal Gear Solid Touch containing the first 12 stages of the game is scheduled for release on the Apple iPhone and iPod Touch in the spring of 2009. The final release will follow with eight additional stages of gameplay, and will be available to existing players via a free update on the Apple App Store.
