Kojima Productions revealed via Twitter yesterday that Metal Gear Solid Snake Eater would be released as part of a 3DS hardware bundle. But they did not say if the included 3DS system would be a special design or just stock hardware.
Hideo Kojima himself clarified today. Responding to a follower query on Twitter, Kojima confirmed that the system will have a unique design. It will be the industry's first snake pattern embossed design, he said. He also shared a teaser image.
Pricing and other specifics will be announced on January 20.
