Kojima Wants Someone To Remake Metal Gear Solid, But That’s All

Kojima Wants Someone To Remake Metal Gear Solid, But That’s All

There was a rumour earlier this week that Metal Gear creator Hideo Kojima was trying to sign up a developer to handle a remake of Metal Gear Solid using Konami’s new Fox Engine. It’s not true, though there are the very best intentions behind it.

Kojima first said this yesterday morning:

He was addressing this article, from Swedish site Gamereactor, which reported (via an E3 roundtable) that Kojima “was actually in the process of searching out a studio he could task with adapting the first game to the Fox Engine”.

Later, however, having gone through the audio recordings of the roundtable discussion the quote supposedly originated from, he learned there’d been a mistranslation on the part of Konami’s staff.

Ah. So, case closed! For what it’s worth, he really would love it if someone could remake the game. So if you’ve got a dream developer who’s, you know, just sitting around, nothing to do, email them and see if they’ll help out. Maybe not Silicon Knights though. One Metal Gear remake is enough for one studio, thanks very much.
