Konami's upcoming PSP title Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker has been delayed over a month.

The game was originally penciled in for March 18 in Japan, but will not be released on April 29. The Western release dates will not be affected: the game will still be released on May 27 in Europe (May 28 in the UK) and on May 25 in the US.

According to Konami, the game has been delayed as additional time is needed to make final modifications so that the title meets consumer satisfaction.


Metal Gear creator Hideo Kojima has previously called Peace Walker a "MGS5 class" game.
