Metal Gear Acid Mobile is a video game developed by Kojima Productions for mobile phones. Although it is part of the Metal Gear series, it is not canonical. There are two versions of the game; a 2D version called Metal Gear Acid Mobile and a 3D version called Metal Gear Acid Mobile 3D. The game is a cut-down remake of the Metal Gear Acid on the PSP, with some missions and characters removed.

AC!D Place in the series

Although Acid is part of the Metal Gear series, it does not follow the same continuity as the Metal Gear Solid games released for the home consoles, but instead follows on from Metal Gear: Ghost Babel, another non-canonical entry into the Metal Gear series. The game features a new cast, but characters, weapons, items and game mechanics from previous games are depicted on the cards. There are three card packs available that cover each of the major Metal Gear games; Metal Gear Solid, Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty and Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater. A fourth set is also available featuring cards based on the classic Metal Gear titles and miscellaneous Kojima games

AC!D Title Significance

According to an interview originally published by Electronic Gaming Monthly with the game's producer, Masahiro Hinami, the 'Acid' part of the title actually has three different meanings. The first meaning refers to Acid's departure from the previous Metal Gear games in terms of style, which is an analogue to acid's ability to dissolve metal. The second is a reference to vecuronium bromide, the chemical used by Elsie and Frances to hijack Flight 326. The third is stated to be an acronym for Active Command Intelligence Duel, a reference to the game's mixture of turn-based tactics with card-based gameplay.
