Metal Gear Solid Master Collection Vol. 1 will be released on October 24, revealing the upcoming bundle’s added features. The news was revealed during the June 21 Nintendo Direct, which also included the shadow-dropping of two iconic GameCube games for the Switch, as well as nearly two dozen additional announcements.
The Metal Gear Solid Master Collection Vol. 1 set was first revealed during the latest PlayStation Showcase. Konami initially stated that the bundle would only be available for PC, Sony, and Microsoft’s current-gen systems. However, its debut in Nintendo Direct confirms that Metal Gear Solid Master Collection Vol. 1 will also be released for the Switch in late October.
Furthermore, the brief trailer during the June 21 broadcast summarised the bundle’s several extra features. An NES port of Metal Gear—not to be mistaken with the vastly different MSX original included in the collection—and Snake’s Revenge are among these additional content highlights.
Both of those games were created without the cooperation of Hideo Kojima and are thus marketed as supplementary content rather than alongside the five primary games in Metal Gear Solid Master Collection Vol. 1, the 1987 NES port was so different that Kojima openly blasted it as not meeting his standards back in 2001, so it’s an exciting piece of history to witness.

The Metal Gear Solid Master Collection Vol. 1 bundle will be followed by MGS Delta: Snake Eater, a remake of MGS3 that has yet to be released but could arrive as early as 2024. Aside from that, Konami has already stated that it is willing to remake more Metal Gear games.
