Kojima wouldn’t mind if a “foreign developer” remade the original Metal Gear

Wednesday, 30th September 2009 03:45 GMT By Nathan Grayson


Not the original Metal Gear Solid, mind you. That sort of already happened. No – Kojima’s all for a remake of Metal Gear’s humble, comparatively cutscene-free beginnings. One teensy problem, though: Kojima’s booked solid for – oh – the rest of his life at the moment.

“It doesn’t have to be me who makes it,” Kojima suggested in an interview with Kotaku. “I made it a long time ago. It could be somebody young that maybe has more abilities than I do….It would even be good if a foreign production team even did it.”

So, who would you like to see give 8-bit Snake a modern makeover? We’re thinking Rocksteady. After Arkham Asylum, just imagine what the developer could do with Metal Gear’s blend of stealth and action.

    Problem is by todays standards the 2 original Metal Gear games are pretty ridiculous, it would need a MASSIVE overhaul including the story.

    Naughty Dog or Team Ninja would do nicely.

    It’d never happen, but hey, a man can dream.

    Yes, Rockstar, someone socially aware, becuase Metal Gear Solid completely isn’t, and to handle the game well, it would be great to see them handle it.

    Wouldn’t a western made MGS just end up Being another Splinter Cell? Unless they went 2D, but then you would end up with something akin to Shadow Complex(awesome game btw). But i don’t know, seems a mute point.

    Hell, even if they simply re-envisioned original MG using MGS4 engine, that would be cool enough for me. No need to over complicate it.
