Classic Snake playable in Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes’ PlayStation-exclusive ‘Deja Vu’ mission

Hideo Kojima's shocking announcement during the PlayStation 4 All Access event last night is that PlayStation gamers will be receiving an exclusive mission in Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes.

"We’re proud to announce that Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes will be coming to PS3 and PS4 with the exclusive Déjà Vu throwback mission!" Konami confirmed on the PS Blog.

The mission allows players to play as "Classic Snake," an old-school polygonal version that resembles Snake from the original Metal Gear Solid. Konami posted the following description of the mission on its official site:

"Retracing 16 years of history, the PlayStation-Exclusive "Déjà Vu" mission brings players back to the 1998 PlayStation classic Metal Gear Solid. In an age when graphics were limited to blocky pixelated polygons, Metal Gear Solid set new standards in videogame storytelling with its memorable characters, cinematic presentation, and complex story. Relive the most memorable moments of the past with this Sony-exclusive mission on PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4. Past and present collide as the characters and camera angles you remember from the 16-year old classic are brought to life the high-fidelity world of MGS:GZ!"

Ground Zeroes is the prologue to Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain and will launch in Spring 2014 on PS3, PS4, Xbox One and Xbox 360. The current-gen version will be priced at $19.99, while the next-gen version will cost you $29.99.

So, is your mind blown?
