Classic Konami Games Released on GOG with Modern Controller Support

Now you can play Metal Gear with PS5's DualSense!

If you enjoyed Konami games in older consoles, you’ll definitely be delighted to know that you can now download some of these classic games and play them with controllers from modern gaming consoles.

This is because, as Games Radar reported, some of these games are now available in the website GOG and configured to support bindings with current-gen console controllers. These updates mean that you can play using the Sony DualSense controllers, the controllers for Microsoft Xbox One, Xbox Series S/X, and the Nintendo Switch Pro.

What games are up for grabs? According to the article, the games include the classic Metal Gear on MSX2, Metal Gear Solid on Sony PlayStation One, and Metal Gear 2: Substance.

Modern controller support is also extended to the Konami Collector’s Series: Castlevania and Contra package.

Last but not least of the classic Konami games is Silent Hill 4: The Room, the last Silent Hill game released to date.

Fans of Silent Hill may appreciate the gesture, especially after a fiasco involving Abandoned, which fans suspect is a new Silent Hill title being disguised as something else.

Rumors went up after Blue Box Studios’ failed to launch a demo for Abandoned as scheduled on August 10. Two days after the failed launch through its PS5 app, Metal Gear director Hideo Kojima posted a cryptic tweet that featured an animatronic rabbit in front of an amusement park.

Theories rose online after fans recognized the rabbit as Robbie the Rabbit from the Silent Hill franchise. Some fans also found the timing dubious, as Kojima made the post on 12 midnight of August 12 in the US. The timing coincided with the 7th anniversary of the release of P.T., a playable demo for the cancelled Silent Hills.

Blue Box Studios eventually released a demo, which players found to be devoid of substance.
