Metal Gear Solid remade with shiny modern graphics. Wouldn’t say no.

Shadow Moses is a fan remake of Metal Gear Solid built in Unreal Engine 4. Creator Airam Hernandez has released first video footage of the project, and it’s looking pretty damn special.

I didn’t realise how much I wanted this till I saw it. Both Metal Gear Solid 2 and Metal Gear Solid 3 have been remastered, but the original Metal Gear Solid has gone without an updated re-release, despite strong fan demand, because it needs a full overhaul rather than an HD brush up.

We know that Metal Gear will continue even now that Hideo Kojima has left Konami. Maybe a remake of the 1998 classic would be a good warm up for the new development team? Just sayin’.

In the meantime, if you’d like to follow Hernandez’s progress and check out screenshots and other assets, your best bet is the Shadow Moses Facebook page.

Edit: Oh yeah, Metal Gear Solid was remastered – for GameCube, as Twin Snakes. I guess my brain doesn’t consider re-releases that I can’t play on current or last-gen consoles. Certainly there was plenty of clamour for a more modern re-release with Sons of Liberty and Snake Eater hit PlayStation 3.
