mgstouchA while ago we have reported an official website that offered solid hints regarding an upcoming release of a Metal Gear Solid game on Xbox 360 consoles – it was certainly something Konami enjoyed, since the internet went instantly crazy. However, the truth has been revealed now: there will be no Metal Gear Solid game for Xbox 360 consoles (at least not for now). However, there is a new MGS title in the works: Metal Gear Solid Touch, an iPhone title.

Website Kotaku has the official confirmation from Konami, as well as a few details to start with. First of all, the game will be released pretty soon – in Spring 2009. Metal Gear Solid Touch will be an original, 8-stages title set in the MGS4 universe which will use the touchpad.

Although Konami decided against giving fans too many details, they did state that MGS Touch will offer gamers the chance to win bonus points and unlock extra goodies, like Metal Gear iPhone wallpapers. Finally, the developers released two screenshots you can check out in the upper left corner. More details as we’ll have them.
