Solid Snake's 3D debut is being pushed to late 2011, according to MCV. Originally scheduled to sneak onto retail shelves this spring, Metal Gear Solid Snake Eater 3D is now expected to launch sometime in November.
First revealed alongside the Nintendo 3DS' playable debut at E3 2010, Metal Gear Solid for the 3DS is a retooled version of Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater. In the game, players take on the role of Codename: Naked Snake--known as Big Boss in later titles--during the Cold War era.
Shacknews has contacted Konami to confirm the new time frame has been extended to all regions, but has yet to hear back at the time of publishing.
