Kojima seeking developer for MGS 1/2 Fox Engine remakes

MGS creator keen to see classics running on new tech

Metal Gear creator Hideo Kojima is reportedly looking for a development team to remake Metal Gear Solid 1 and 2 using Kojima Productions' new Fox Engine.


According to GameReactor, the designer made the revelation at a roundtable interview at E3, during which he said he was seeking out a developer to remake both Metal Gear Solid 1 and 2 with the next-gen-ready 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," reports GameReactor.

Twin Snakes was a remake of PlayStation 1 classic, Metal Gear Solid, with enhanced visuals and improved controls, released in 2004.

The original MGS has since been digitally via the PlayStation Store, and will feature as part of the Metal Gear Solid: The Legacy Collection, which hits retail in July.

The Fox Engine is a new high-end engine built by Kojima Productions, which will power Metal Gear Solid: The Phantom Pain and other major Konami titles including future editions of PES.
