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

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.
