Metal Gear (メタルギア) is a military-style stealth gaming franchise developed by Kojima Productions and published by Konami. Series creator Hideo Kojima and members of his development team played advisory roles in the development of Castlevania: Lords of Shadow.
Connections to the Castlevania seriesEdit
- The game Metal Gear Solid (Konami, 1998) for the PlayStation has a telepathic character, Psycho Mantis, who says the line: "You like Castlevania, don't you?" if the game finds a Castlevania: Symphony of the Night save file on the memory card.
- While traveling through a small tunnel in the Vampire Castle, Metal Gear theme music can be heard playing faintly.
- Players can unlock the "Solid Eye" and bandanna for Gabriel Belmont to wear once the game's story is completed. These items are worn by the series protagonist Solid Snake, in Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots.
- Many members of the Metal Gear Solid voice cast worked on the voiceovers for the Japanese release. Hideo Kojima provided the voiceovers for the Chupacabras in this version.
