Konami has finalized the American release date for Metal Gear Solid: Snake Eater 3D. The game will come to the US on February 21st and hit stores in Japan on March 8th.

Snake Eater 3D won't be the first game to be compatible with Nintendo's Circle Pad Pro accessory, but it's definitely one of the earliest adopters. The extra circle pad and shoulder buttons will almost certainly be essential to playing a game with such complex controls.
