Mondo presses Metal Gear original NES vinyl soundtrack
A departure from the MSX2 edition, the 8-bit console port for the military stealth game was developed without the involvement of series designer Hideo Kojima. Solid Snake of the high-tech special forces unit Foxhound is tasked with infiltrating a fortified nationstate named Outer Heaven to destroy a mechanized bipedal weapon armed with nuclear weaponry, dubbed "Metal Gear."
A port of Metal Gear for Windows launched this week through GOG.com, as part of the distributor's showcase of classic Konami titles. From the Mondo product page:
