As gamers will recall, the Metal Gear Solid series is no stranger to the concept of re-releases. Its first three incarnations featured either supplemental content – VR Missions, Substance, and Subsistence, respectively – while the Gamecube got a full-on remake, in the form of Metal Gear Solid: The Twin Snakes for the Gamecube. Now, it seems that Hideo Kojima is interested in re-revisiting the original Metal Gear Solid.
Joystiq reports that MGS creator is currently seeking a studio to handle development of the project. While nothing is set in stone, developer Just Add Water has expressed interest over Twitter. The studio is no stranger to remakes, having headed the HD release of Oddworld: Munch’s Oddysee in 2011. Should Kojima & Co. give the green light, the project would utilize the Fox Engine, which will be used to provide the visual loveliness for Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain. Kojima didn’t divulge what enhancements might be in store – The Twin Snakes, while a remake, did borrow some gameplay elements (such as being able to shoot in first-person mode) from Metal Gear Solid 2 – but we’ll keep you up to date as things develop.
What to you think gamers? Are you itching for a next-gen remake of Metal Gear Solid, or is this simply Hideo Kojima shaking his personal money tree? Sound off in the comments section below!
