Metal Gear Solid Remake May Not Happen

Hideo Kojima tweeted recently that the rumor that he was looking for a studio to utilize the new Fox engine to recreate Metal Gear Solid 1 was a miss translation in an interview. He said that people have been asking for remakes for all the early titles of the series, but he replies, " I cannot do, I wish if only someone could make MGS1 on the Fox engine." (PS3, PS4)

Good ...don't ruin a classic The twins snakes already did.. Better graphics doesn't make the game better

What if its just a cosmetic upgrade a la Bionic Commando Rearmed™ ?

the atmosphere of the ps1 game is so perfect... why risk tainting it

Who cares if they offer both the original and updated version? I don't see how giving consumers the option of the original classic plus a remake matters.

Metal Gear Solid is still a masterpiece and does NOT need a remake. Twin Snakes is the sole example why remake of such game can be disastrous.

TTS could have been a great game without those meaningless matrix stunts and better voice acting.

I definitely agree. No one can come close to Greg Eagles' delivery as Gray Fox during the Metal Gear Rex fight.

I was going today that too. I'd rather play the original anyway of the week then have to suffer through another twin snakes. Granted a remake could come out stellar if they so it right, it should stay as is because fans will tear it apart if one tiny thing changes (again I use twin snakes as a reference.)

I agree with you but TTS wasnt only cosmetic, if I can recall they added a FPS mode.

It's too soon anyway. But never say never. Besides, Kojima said the Big Boss saga might have at least 3 more games before it's done. I'd rather he focus on that instead. IF ever he gets to the mgs 1 remake, he can give it to another team. The main game is already made, just needs a fresh new coat of Fox Engine paint, and some slightly modernized (but not too much) additions to the gameplay.

Remember most the levels are in closed rooms unlike MGSV open world. The game would certainly look amazing and great performance wise without worrying about draw distances and such. It could look almost real

I played twin snakes and I thought it was awesome game. That was my first entry into Metal Gear series it combined the excellent graphics and gameplay of part 2 into the best metal gear story in my opinion.

I don't want a remake of Metal Gear solid. I want a remake of Metal Gear and Metal Gear 2. I wanna see big boss meet solid snake.

I want a remake because theres no way im gonna play MGS1 with ps1 graphics i refuse too. I know theres twins snakes but i want HD graphics.
johny5  +   836d ago
it is possible to have MGS1 translate well as a next gen title if they just stick close to the original source "Design wise" and have all the original actors play there parts "if possible" but it also needs to be done with kojima's help this time to better fit his vision! which is going to be hard for any studio!

oh and one more thing don't be a hayter!!!

As a fan of the original MGS on PS1, I also like to see a remake using the FOX Engine with the ff:

- 3rd person free camera
- same cinematics, voices, and soundtrack
- overhauled facial and body, hair/bandana animation
- Vita integration (for inventory, codec, and Soliton radar map) as well as Psycho Mantis and Ocelot torture, and VR mission "mini-games"
- Kojima-directed = WIN.

But more than MGS1, I'd like to see Hideo Kojima remake MG1&2 (Outer Heaven Uprising and Zanzibar Land Incident) with the FOX Engine on PS4. That would be EPIC!

You know, back in 1998 when I bought this game ( Still own it ). I fell in love with it as it was. We didn't know of no better graphics and better engines at the time. I got a emotional connection with the game just how it was made back then. I mean I was really sad when Sniper Wolf died and her wolfs came around howling. Just the whole game was like this. So there's no reason to change what already had a huge impact.
