According to NintendoLife, when the game was tried out the game for a preview, the game ran only at 720p. The reason for this display resolution was due to the bundle was based on the PS3’s classic Metal Gear Solid HD Collection, which ran only at 720p at its time. On Nintendo Switch, it only ran at 30fps even though the original HD collection ran at 60fps.
Aside from the resolution, it was also revealed that the collection will open with a warning message when it starts up. It informed players that each game’s content is unchanged and some scenes might be considered to be outdated to others.
“This game contains expressions and themes which may be considered outdated,” the disclaimer said. “However, these elements have been included without alteration to preserve the historical context in which the game was made and the creator’s original vision. Player discretion is advised.”
The disclaimer did not specify which scenes were considered outdated, but it could be the ones that are considered bad or insulting to society in current times.
While the original versions of the series might not be fazed by these various scenes, this might become a culture shock for the current generation.
Metal Gear Solid Master Collection Vol. 1 launches on October 24, 2023 on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox Series X/S, and Nintendo Switch.
