Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker Dated For North America

Konami has made a date with Naked Snake for his next North American outing, penciling in Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker for the PlayStation Portable, expected to arrive on these shores May 25, 2010.

Snake's '70s era sneak attack will hit North American PSPs just a few days before Europe gets a crack at it, a little more than two months after the game launches in Japan. The follow-up to Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater features an original scenario from Metal Gear creator Hideo Kojima and a "unique new game system designed specifically with the PSP in mind," according to Konami.

We've already checked in with Konami USA to see what the publisher's plans are for PSPgo owners who may want to download the game at launch. Quick Update: Konami reps say "There will be a download sku as well as a UMD sku available at launch." Yay!
