Game Reactor reported that Kojima was searching for a studio to remake the “first” Metal Gear Solid game. The website reports it is not Metal Gear, but Metal Gear Solid that plans to be remade.
A fan from Turkey infiltrated an E3 2013 press room to ask Kojima a few questions. One being that the Metal Gear Solid film that’s currently being produced by Avi Arad, to never be made - because it “could not live up to the narrative of the games.” Second, he “requested remakes using Fox Engine for the first two Metal Gear Solid titles.”
Kojima assured that the upcoming Metal Gear Solid film with be a great experience with his close involvement. He also “explained that he was actually in the process of searching out a studio he could task with adapting the first game to the Fox Engine. He noted that some of the mechanics would need updating, but apparently he’s keen on a second remake following Silicon Knights’ Gamecube adapation Twin Snakes and HD releases of the original game.”
The first Metal Gear Solid has been a lot of focus as of late. With new Play Arts figures being distributed, and Solid Snake’s Shadow Moses model getting an HD makeover for the Metal Gear Solid Legacy Collection.
Keep in mind that Kojima has stated before that he wished to “re-imagine” Metal Gear Solid 1 in full High Definition.
“If we were going to do Metal Gear Solid 1 we’d want to take more time with it. Not just up-res the textures, not just make things look pretty and polished, but go back and tweak some of the gameplay, tweak the story to update things and do it properly. Not just a re-master but a re-imagining almost.
“We do want to do that sometime down the road but it will take more time. It’s not something we’re looking at doing right now.”
