Snakeskin 3DS to be bundled with MGS: Snake Eater 3D

Hideo Kojima has been stirring rumors of a bundled 3DS release to accompany Snake Eater 3DS. Today, the designer tweeted the first teaser image of the custom console that would accompany his remade jungle-stealth thriller, and it's one of the more stylish first-party mods we've seen in quite some time. Take a look at the Snakeskin 3DS below.

Above: Feast your eyes (not your belly, as this is far too square and WiFi-compatible to be an actual snake)

Kojima claims this is the games industry's “first snake pattern-embossed design” – which it probably is, come to that. Even in the '70s when consoles were decked out in wood-panel, no one thought to make a games machine out of faux freakin' snakeskin. Expect cowboys, pimps, and anyone else known for outfitting themselves in snake-leather to crowd the internet come Jan 20, when further details on the bundle will be made public.

    So, wait, real snakes DON'T connect to the internet!? D: Man, if this comes to the UK, I would DEFINITELY think about buying a 3DS.

    Why does everyone think there's going to be a 3DS redesign? Yes, it needs to be redesigned but that in no way shape or form means it's going to get a redesign. When Nintendo wants to make a dual-analog controlled game they will make it for the Wii-U. The Wii-U is basically a big DS anyways and the 3DS (even though I love it) is not profitable. You don't sink money into unprofitable ventures. You only redesign something when it was profitable and you're looking to rejuvenate sales.

    personally I prefer the Zelda one to this - looks a bit too much like a lady's handbag to me!

    Why would you bother with MGS3 when you could have MGS2, MGS3 and MGSPW on one cartridge for vita?
  • Cyberninja - January 4, 2012 3:50 a.m.

    for 2 reasons one the vita version isn't out anywhere and two you assume people don't have the other games because out of this all i want is 3 because i have the other ones

    I haven't played any of them myself -- but I can understand only wanting the one you don't have.

    I'm not going to trade in my current black 3DS or buy another one for this, but damn that is really badass.

    And...cue PETA.

    I think your obscenity is misspelled there. As I said before funny how they chose Mario over.. I don't know.. Red Dead Redemption. You know the game where you actually shoot and skin critters?

    HOLY FUCK! I'm glad I passed on the Zelda 3DS, this is badass!
