Metal Gear Solid was released 20 years ago today in Japan. Today’s track of the Day is the closing track of the game, titled ‘The Best Is Yet To Come’. Written and produced by Rika Muranaka, the song is sung in Irish by Aoife Ní Fhearraigh with a traditional Irish accompaniment:
Metal Gear Solid was a huge success as it garnered high sales and critical success. It spawned several sequels and can be credited with pioneering story-driven narrative and adult themes in modern video games. This can be attributed to creator and director Hideo Kojoma and his team.
The Metal Gear franchise is in a a state of transition at the minute since Kojima left Konami, but there have been talks of a MGS remake.
The Tokyo Game Show takes place between September 20-23. Will we see an announcement there? Either way, the original Metal Gear Solid is an absolute classic, even to this day.
