Ok so my header image is actually one for wishful thinking as the article I’m referring to in this piece is about Kojima actually talking about looking for a 3rd party studio to recreate MGS1 on the FOX Engine. This is great news and all, though MGS1 has already been rebooted once before. Nintendo had the fortune of MGS1 being remade by Silicon Knights using the MGS2 engine which gave us The Twin Snakes. Great game on all accounts.
What would be even better is if Kojima chooses to remake Metal Gear and Metal Gear 2: Solid Snake instead. Kojima has said he’d have to retool the story for MGS1 anyway to fit it into today’s standards and practices of gaming.
Why not go balls deep and just redo those initial MSX games? It’d be totally worth it for MGS fans, Konami, and for all gamers alike. And shit, imagine Solid Snake infiltrating Outer Heaven during Operation Intrude N313… ON THE FUCKING FOX ENGINE!!
Kojima, MAKE IT HAPPEN!!
