Hideo Kojima, creator of the Metal Gear series, is looking for a studio to remake the original Metal Gear Solid.
The game was originally updated in 2004 for the GameCube with Metal Gear Solid: Twin Snakes by developer Silicon Knights. Any new version would be made with Fox Engine, Gamereactor reports. He also noted that some of the mechanics of the original would need updating. Notably the original game was absent from the Metal Gear Solid: HD Collection that was released last year.
It has been a big month for Kojima, with Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain wowing many fans at E3. After his recent comments about MGSV possibly incorporating Kinect and SmartGlass, coupled with the famous Psycho Mantis section in the original, it’s always exciting to hear talk of Kojima’s plans. Any update of the original would most likely incorporate some of the next-gen’s new technology as well.
Kojima also talked about the Metal Gear Solid movie, confirming his involvement and his ambition to make it, “a great experience.”
