Metal Gear Solid Master Collection Is Only $20 For Switch At Amazon


Metal Gear Solid: Master Collection Vol. 1 is on sale for only $20 at Amazon. This deal only applies to the Nintendo Switch version. The compilation released last October. Solid deals up until now dropped the price to $40 (list price is $60). However, it’s worth noting that the Switch version runs at 30fps, while other platforms offer 60fps. Otherwise, the included content and bonus materials are identical between all versions. Target already sold out of the $20 deal, so we wouldn’t be surprised if Amazon sold out, too.

Heads up for PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X owners: Amazon-owned retailer Woot is selling the compilation for $25. The Switch version is also $25 at Woot, so if the Amazon deal sells out, Woot’s offer is a good alternative.

The Metal Gear Solid: Master Collection Vol. 1 includes seven games: Metal Gear Solid, Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty, and Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater alongside the classic MSX2 and NES versions of the original Metal Gear, as well as Snake’s Revenge for NES and Metal Gear 2 for MSX2.

This isn’t just a treasure trove of stealth action gameplay but also a convenient collection that is enhanced with the addition of extra content. It also comes with the motion comics Metal Gear Solid: Digital Graphic Novel (2006) and Metal Gear Solid 2: Bande Dessinée, strategy guides, screenplay books, and a curated in-game soundtrack.

“Konami has still put together a comprehensive bundle, collecting five highly influential games (and multiple variations) from a period spanning 24 years,” Jason Fanelli wrote in GameSpot’s Metal Gear Solid: Master Collection review. “There are other ways to play these games, but I think we often undersell the appeal of convenience. Being able to easily access them all on a modern console is a major selling point.” While some of these titles might show their age mechanically, the overarching Metal Gear Solid narrative holds up remarkably, and many of its themes like digital surveillance, artificial intelligence, and weaponized misinformation feel more relevant than ever. Be sure to grab the collection while the deal is still available.
