Metal Gear Solid 3D: Snake Eater demo coming this week

"Snake? Snake?! Snaaaaaaaaaaaaake?" ... is just one of the things you may be screaming into your 3DS this week, as Nintendo has confirmed a free demo for Metal Gear Solid 3D: Snake Eater will slither its way onto the Nintendo eShop sometime over the next few days.

The free demo is courtesy of Konami and Nintendo, and is said to contain a “taste of the classic stealth action, bespoke Nintendo 3DS controls and the famous cut scenes that only Hideo Kojima could make."

GR bespoke of the Metal Gear Solid 3's controls in our hands-on review of the 3DS's Circle Pad Pro, and earlier during our E3 2011 preview. You too can bespeak your opinions of the full game when it releases on February 21 in North America, and March 8 in the UK and Japan.

Along with the Metal Gear Solid 3D demo, Nintendo also announced a handful of other goodies out on the eShop this week. Highlights include the Game Boy classic Wario Land: Super Mario Land 3, the undead DSiWare title GO Series: Undead Storm, and a WiiWare demo of Aya and the Cubes of Light. New Nintendo Videos, such as the second installment of Kirby's animated “Right back at Ya!” series and the next episode of Circus 3D, will also be available.

    I would be all over this if I had a 3DS. Just one of those games where I don't really care how many copies I own, I'm always ready to buy it again.

    I forgot about the make-your-own camo feature. That could be hilarious. Looks like I need to finally get a Circle Pad Pro.

    Finally the waiting is going to be over for this! Metal Gear 3's jungle environment in 3D is going to be good. Just playing through the HD collection atm, then this is out. So much Metal Gear, all at once, loll.

    Damn, the Eshop just keeps adding awesome stuff, I just finished Mutant Mudds, Such a freaking HARD game Damnit, and I still got Samurai Samurai(Best Eshop game since Pushmo) Now Warioland? Awesome! MGSSE Demo? Great, I'm still enjoying the demos of Resident evil and MandSLondon. Speaking of which, why arnt the 3DS originals not reviewed yet? Especially the Nintendo IP's Pushmo and Sakura Samurai, one of which is a brand new Concept and the other a rebirth of an old Japan NES game.

    I'm buying the game anyway. The demo is just extra for me.

    Is the demo compatible with the circle pad pro?
