Kojima: Maybe A Foreign Studio Should Re-Make Metal Gear

One last bit from Kotaku's Hideo Kojima interview of last week. The gentleman asking questions for Kotaku Japan asked Kojima about remaking the original Metal Gear. Too busy, the developer said. But...

"It doesn't have to be me who makes it," he said, noting he may not enough years in his life to get to it. The top-down Solid Snake adventure that started it all was released in 1987 on the MSX and became world-famous on the Nintendo Entertainment System. "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."

That's all we got from him on the topic. So, we know that Kojima is too busy to re-make the game. We know that he's been willing in the past to let the foreigners at Silicon Knights re-make Metal Gear Solid.

So, Kotaku, which non-Japanese studio would you like to see re-make the original Metal Gear?

    About Metal Gear Remake, someone whose not busy, i'd rather everyone got on with their own IP's we have had enough rehashing atm.

    Oh if only GRIN Studios was still around!

    I wonder if Michel Biehn has ever tried to sue for infringement on his likeness?

    When I first saw this advertised in a Marvel comic some decades ago I thought it was an ad for an Aliens game.

      I'm with you man, I thought I was the only one who saw the rip off, but obviously not!

      "I like to keep this handy for close encounters..."

    Someone who is good at developing games with good controls. The Assassin's Creed team, maybe? The MGS series has the most pointlessly-complicated and clunky system imaginable, streamlining them into something more modern would be a welcome change.

      I think the team behind shadow complex would be the best suited for an old school remake.

      OH Puhleez. Don't get me started.

    Does it need to be re-made? They have re-released the PS1 version on the Japanese PS Store. How hard would an english version be?

      Metal Gear, not Metal Gear Solid. As the article says, the 1987 MSX/NES game.
