After 16 years, the “lost” Metal Gear Solid mobile game has been discovered – it was exclusive to several phones

A “lost” 2008 mobile game based on the Metal Gear Solid franchise has been found and posted online for saving.


As reported by Time Extension, Metal Gear Solid Mobile has been revived by several Twitter users who have managed to revive the game, originally released back in 2008, by making it playable via emulation.

Interestingly, this is not a game from Kojima or Konami, but rather a strange spin-off made by the London studio Ideaworks, which closed down just a few years after the game’s release. It was completely created for mobile devices, including, for example, the Nokia N-Gage gaming phone.


Moreover, Metal Gear Solid Mobile is not a port of the original Metal Gear Solid, but a full-fledged original part, which takes place between Metal Gear Solid and Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty. The game features Snake and Otacon attempting to disable Metal Gear around the world once and for all.

It’s without a doubt one of the least known Metal Gear games, so even big fans might not be aware of its existence considering it’s a 2008 mobile exclusive. If you don’t feel like delving into history for a new Metal Gear game, don’t worry, Metal Gear Solid Delta: Snake Eater, a full-fledged remake of MGS 3, is due out this year, according to PlayStation.
