A few days ago, we learned that Hideo Kojima is seeking an outside studio to work on a new Metal Gear Solid remake .
The idea is that a talented team would utilize Kojima's next-gen Fox Engine to create a re-imagining of the PlayStation classic. Well, somebody has already volunteered for the job: It's Oddworld: Stranger's Wrath HD developer Just Add Water.
In an open letter addressed to the MGS guru himself, the studio explains why they're "ideally positioned" to deliver the goods. Here's their list of reasons why:
"1: We have experience working with legendary IP (Oddworld Inhabitants) and treating the subject matter with the respect it deserves.
2: Many members of our team are huge Metal Gear fans, with very good knowledge of the source material.
3: We really, really want to do it."
Just Add Water is also working on a remake of the original Oddworld: Abe's Oddysee , which was recently unveiled and entitled, Oddworld: New 'n' Tasty . They also want to make it clear that they're not just pulling a prank; they're sincere in the offer and they "eagerly await" a response from Kojima-san. So, what do you think? Good fit?
