Coming in October apparently, according to Konami - who should know these things, really

Konami has revealed that Metal Gear Solid 3: Subsistence - Hideo Kojima's MGS rejig with online shenanigans - is set for release in Europe this October.

Coming on three discs, the game will include an enhanced version of MGS3: Snake Eater on disc one while disc two sports a bunch of new modes, including a fully-online version of the game and recreations of the original MSX Metal Gear titles. There's also a three-and-a-half hour movie recut based on the game's cinematics on disc three.

Enhancements to the original game include a new 3D camera based on the system from upcoming MGS4, enabling gamers to view the action from any angle, while online modes on disc two range from Sneaking Missions, Capture Missions and Rescue Missions to the more traditional Death Matches and Team Death Matches.

Elsewhere on the discs, you'll find the Demo Theatre, enabling you to watch any of the games cut-scenes on a whim, a Duel Mode where you can take on Boss characters from MGS3 head-to-head and a Secret Theatre showcasing a bunch of spoof movies, including the return of Raiden.

So yes, all this can be yours this October in Europe. The jig of feverish anticipation shall now commence.
