Metal Gear Solid Touch hit the App Store yesterday in Japan, a day earlier than previously announced. In celebration of its release there was a presentation event held by Kojima and some Metal Gear fans. Those in attendance included (from left to right) Kojima, fashion model Akina Minami, US born (now Japanese) actor Dante Carver and MGST producer Watanabe Yasuyo.
Minami and Dante both tried out the game for the first time and had some positive things to say about it. They felt Metal Gear Touch was easy to play and a lot of fun. Minami went on to say that she felt even girls would be able to enjoy the game. Everyone seemed to think the game’s combat system was easy to understand, perhaps in contrast to the more complicated PS3 installment.
On a side note, Watanabe is the first female producer to work for Kojima Studios. I think that is pretty cool, and MGST is looking like it will be popular so hopefully she’ll be around for a while.
I have been wanting a damn iPhone for a while now, but really just cannot afford it. Metal Gear Solid Touch of course makes me want one even more, but no… Kojima couldn’t stop there. He had to release a bunch of awesome MGS inspired air jackets:

I am not sure when these are coming out or if I would even be able to find them. If so I may buy one in anticipation of eventual iPhone ownership.
