MGS 3DS now on for March 2012 in Japan

There’s a lot of confusion surrounding Metal Gear Solid Snake Eater 3D‘s delay, though it was thought that the game would still launch in Japan this year.

It would seem not however; (via Andriasang) reports that the game is now on for a March 8 release in the country. No reason was given for the slip but it’s a good guess that Konami wasn’t keen on releasing two remakes of MGS3 in as many months.

Does this mean we can expect to see Snake around these parts at the same time? We sure hope so.
