The Metal Gear Solid: Snake Eater 3D 3DS hardware bundle hitting Japan was revealed by a Kojima employee only a few days ago, and new details have already been leaked, this time by MGS creator Hideo Kojima himself.

Kojima tweeted a picture of the special edition 3DS shortly afterward, but to be honest, we didn't notice it until now. Maybe you didn't either, and this is news to you—the 3DS will be covered in snakeskin. Probably not real snakeskin, and who knows if we'll get it in the US, but still, that thing is awesome.

Is it the most badass handheld system ever or is it the most badass handheld system ever? Let usk now your thoughts in the comments or on Twitter.
