Kojima Seeking Studio to Recreate Metal Gear Solid Using the Fox Engine
Metal Gear mastermind, Hideo Kojima, revealed in an interview with GameReactor, that he is looking for a studio interested in remaking the PSOne classic, Metal Gear Solid, using the Fox Engine.
Kojima said in the interview that he would like to see a complete overhaul of the game from the ground up, noting that the mechanics would need updating.
Metal Gear Solid released on the PlayStation in 1998 to critical success. The game helped spawn several sequels, as well as spin-offs on mobile platforms. The game saw a revamp in 2004 when developer Silicon Knights released it as Metal Gear Solid: The Twin Snakes for GameCube. The release featured enhanced graphics, new cutscenes and additional gameplay options.
The Fox Engine was developed by Kojima Productions with the goal of creating multiplatform games under a shorter development span. The first game that will utilize the engine is the upcoming Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain.
