Konami Digital Entertainment announced that May 25th, 2010 is the official street date for Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker, on the PSP (PlayStation Portable) system in North America.

In the game the players take control of the famed Naked Snake to battles mercenaries in the Costa Rica of 1974.

Developed and directed by legendary Hideo Kojima - this latest PSP system installment picks up where Metal Gear Solid 3 for the PlayStation 2 computer entertainment system leaves off.

Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker features original game design, story and scenario by Kojima and is scheduled to launch in March 2010 in Japan. The game takes the series in an exciting new direction with its incredible visuals and its unique new game system designed specifically with the PSP in mind.

Note: I have seen the demo trailer for this game and it looks amazing. It definitely will be a must-buy for PSP owners and Metal Gear Solid fans all around the world. Having said that, I have to say that the Costa Rica depicted in the video game is nothing like the Costa Rica of those years, and the story of the game will simply make no sense to us Ticos. At least they do mention that Costa Rica doesn't have an army because it was "abolished as a permanent institution". Nonetheless, this will be a great game, so just make sure you grab it as soon as it hits the market.
