Metal Gear Solid 1: PS3 Remake and new story could be possibility

By Posted 13 Jun 2011, 06:49

If you tuned into this year’s E3 event, you would have seen Konami announce a HD collections for Metal Gear Solid, although the original Metal Gear Solid was missing from the lineup. However, we have some exciting news for you now, as Kojima Productions has recently stated that they aim to remake it separately.

Metal Gear Solid HD Collection will feature Metal Gear Solid 2, MGS3: Snake Eater and also Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker, which was previously a PSP-only game. Those titles are all on the way to the Xbox 360 and PS3 at some point, but the one title that gamers want remade is the original, and arguably the best.

In an interview with Eurogamer, Yoshikazu Matsuhana, creative producer with Kojima Productions revealed that the studio has plans to ‘re-imagine’ Metal Gear Solid, with all new content, HD visuals of course and possibly even change the storyline too – which would be a mouth-watering prospect for die-hard fans of the franchise.

Check out a portion of his interview bleow:

‘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.”

He added that they definitely want to do it at somepoint ‘down the road’, but confirmed that it isn’t in their plans at this current stage. Either way, his comments are going to bring a sigh of relief to fans who thought the chances of an orignal remake in HD were dead and buried after the HD collections announcement at E3.

Are you waiting for the first game to be remade? What are your thoughts on a storyline change?

    This called “remake” was already done for the GameCube, its Metal Gear Solid Twin Snakes.  Probably they will take that game, add some stuff and transform it into PS3 format.

    MGS has already been updated and remade with the phenomenal Metal Gear Solid: Twin Snakes on the Gamecube. I’d be happy with a nearly identical HD port of that, since most people probably never played it anyway….
