Retro gamers rejoice!

Japanese video game developer and publisher Konami has stealthily released many of its classic games to the PC via digital distribution platform GOG.com.

Konami announced the re-release of some of its classic games during the virtual 2020 Tokyo Game Show. Likewise, a release from GOG.com promises all of the games have been updated for modern PC hardware.

Stealth genre forerunner Metal Gear (1987), Metal Gear Solid (2000), and Metal Gear Solid 2: Substance (2003) are available through GOG. The first game costs $5.99 (P290) while the second and third installments cost $9.99 (P484) each.

Joining the three Metal Gears will be the Konami Collector’s Series: Castlevania and Contra, which bundles five games: Castlevania, Castlevania 2: Simon’s Quest, Castlevania 3: Dracula’s Curse, plus Contra and its sequel, Super C. All of the franchises’ 8-bit games come in an affordable bundle that will set you back $5.99 (P290).

For now, these re-releases have only been made available for the PC through GOG.
