Kojima: Metal Gear Solid remake reports 'were a mistranslation'

Creator says he's still interested in MGS1 remake

Hideo Kojima is not seeking out studios to remake Metal Gear Solid and Metal Gear Solid 2 using the FOX Engine.

Posting on Twitter, Kojima said the reports about his alleged interest were the result of a mistranslation, and that the mistake was made by Kojima's interpreter.

Reports earlier in the week stated Kojima wanted both Metal Gear Solid and Metal Gear Solid 2 to be remade with updated mechanics. Although Kojima clarified that the studio isn't currently seeking out a developer, he indicated that he's still interested in remaking the PSone classic.

Metal Gear Solid 5 opened Microsoft's E3 2013 press conference. A lengthy trailer confirmed confirmed the much-anticipated cross-gen sequel will feature open-world gameplay, real-time weather, various modes of transport, realistic passage of time, deeper stealth action, and dynamic CQC.

CVG met with the legendary designer at E3 to discuss next-gen, open worlds and just who that great white Whale might be. Additionally, Kojima confirmed a new Metal Gear Online is in development alongside MGS5
