Konami of Europe has announced the European release date for Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater. The game - which shipped last year in North America - will be hitting our retail stores on March 4th 2005.

This official release date announcement comes following recent news that the game will feature additional content not found in the US and Japanese versions of the game.

Kunio Neo, President for Konami of Europe, had this to say on the European release:

"This is the date Metal Gear Solid fans have been waiting for. We are delighted to be able to offer European players the chance to play a version of Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater that has a number of new elements over the US and Japanese games, and are certain that the new jungle environments and gameplay features will delight fans of Snake's stealth missions. It represents a new high for the series, and we have very high hopes for the latest stunning game from Hideo Kojima."
