Just Add Water would love the opportunity to re-make the classic Metal Gear Solid using the Fox Engine, and have penned an open letter to Hideo Kojima expressing such interest.

While Kojima has acknowledged that his comments regarding his wish for a third-party to remake the game were mistranslated, he has said he wouldn’t mind it.

“If there’s some creator or team in this world who has love and passion to remake “MGS1″, I would love to ask for it,” he tweeted.

Well, JAW is one. Here’s the studio’s letter in full:

We read with great excitement on VG247 that you were looking for a studio to work with to develop a Metal Gear Solid remake using the Fox Engine, that your team has been hard at work creating.

We at Just Add Water feel ideally positioned to do the remake justice for several reasons:

  • We have experience working with legendary IP (Oddworld Inhabitants) and treating the subject matter with the respect it deserves.
  • Many members of our team are huge Metal Gear fans, with very good knowledge of the source material.
  • We really, really want to do it.

For evidence of our abilities, please check out not only the HD treatment of Oddworld: Stranger’s Wrath, released on PlayStation3, VITA and PC, but the current re-creation of Abe’s Oddysee, titled Oddworld: New ‘n’ Tasty.

We eagerly await your response.

Love and cuddles,
The JAW Team.

Hopefully Kojima will see JAW’s letter and respond. We wish them the best of luck with it.
