Metal Gear Solid 3 Remake: here’s what Delta means in the title.
Following the announcement of the Metal Gear Solid 3 remake, many wondered what Delta in the title meant. The full name of the title is in fact Metal Gear Solid Delta: Snake Eater, where the Delta replaces the number 3. To clarify the matter, Konami has published a tweet where it clearly explains why it was chosen to remove the number 3 in favor of inserting the Delta.
The Delta (Δ) symbol was chosen because its meaning corresponds to the very concept of the remake project,” wrote the official Metal Gear Solid Twitter account. “Delta means change or difference , but without changing the structure”
The Delta, in fact, in mathematical language, is used as an operator symbol and as a finite difference symbol . The symbol is often used to indicate an increase and a difference with respect to a situation, therefore it is a meaning that is linked to the very concept of a remake and of a work that therefore includes differences and changes with respect to the original work.
Before leaving you, we remind you that Metal Gear Solid was also announced at the PlayStation Showcase on May 24th. Master Collection Vol.1. The collection will contain 5 games and not 3 as originally thought.
As for, however, Metal Gear Solid Delta: Snake Eater we do not have a release date yet. We are therefore waiting for more information.
