Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty Delayed

European gamers will have to wait a little longer for Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty. Konami today officially delayed the European launch of Metal Gear Solid 2 from February 22nd to March 8th.

"This is our biggest ever day one order," said a Konami spokesperson today. While the extra DVD is a serious bonus for Europe, the manufacturing of such enormous numbers of the two-disc set has forced the small delay. "We want to give the European consumer the extras for having to wait for the release of the game after Japan and America. We would have released it on the correct date, with all the additions intact, but demand has been nothing short of sensational."

Included in the game will be a "making of" disc as well as three bonus game modes, not seen in the American or Japanese releases: Extreme Difficulty Mode, Casting Theatre, and Boss Survival Mode.
