Fans of the Metal Gear Solid series feared for the worst when it was announced that Hideo Kojima was leaving Konami in a high-profile departure. Luckily, the company has announced that they will not be abandoning the series, which will live on in their new line of premium pachinko machines.

The Fox EngineTM was BUILT for this!!! We made a significant investment in its development and definitely weren’t going to let that go to waste. Just wait till you see the indoor lighting effects produced. Not only that, but we’ve learned the value of establishing a foundation of strong mechanics and interactions with our recent releases, and this entry will have more new and unique gameplay mechanics and multipliers than any other MGS in the past.

We don't have a firm release date yet, but you can see what to expect in this MGS3 Pachinko Review Video.

Leaks reveal the latest installment will feature a new protagonist, Lucky Snake.
