Metal Gear Arcade, Kojima Productions's coin-op/light gun adaptation of PS3's Metal Gear Online with stereoscopic 3D visuals and head-tracking, will finally hit Japan next week. Ahead of that launch, the studio and parent company Konami have posted the game's arcade mode online.

This is a Japan-only release for now, but importers will probably be able to secure a machine, so long as they don't mind spending around $22,000 per unit before taxes and shipping! You didn't think all that technology came cheap, did you?

Since the above Metal Gear Arcade video doesn't show any actual gameplay, I've embedded a clip of someone playing through the online title after the break:
