Metal Gear Solid 4 will at last receive a patch that will introduce support for PS3's Trophy system.
Andriasang reports that the news was broken by Metal Gear creator Hideo Kojima in an interview in this week's issue of Japanese weekly Famitsu.
Trophies will be integrated into disc copies of the game's budget re-release in August in Japan. Owners of the current game will be able to download a patch that adds Trophy support.
Metal Gear Solid 4 was released in June 2008. Sony didn't add Trophy support to PS3 until the following month.
Most games that had been recently released on the system saw their developers patch in support but – despite the calls of fans – Kojima productions never made it happen.
