Maybe you weren't aware, but it didn't all begin with Metal Gear Solid on the PlayStation; the official start began way back in 1987 on the old MSX in the form of just plain ol' Metal Gear . Then it jumped through the roof when it arrived on the NES.
And now that everyone has gone a little remake crazy, perhaps it was inevitable that somebody would ask Hideo Kojima if he had any plans of revisiting and entirely overhauling the 22-year-old game. His response may actually surprise you… This came from a recent interview with Kotaku Japan :
"It doesn't have to be me who makes it. I made it a long time ago. It could be somebody young that maybe has more abilities than I do… It would even be good if a foreign production team even did it."
A "foreign production team?" As in, a team from the West? Well, that might not be a terrible idea, actually, as the concept of Metal Gear may be well-suited for designers in this neck of the woods. It would be disappointing to have Kojima play no role in the production whatsoever, although with a project this old, it may not be a requirement. After all, just about no aspect of the original title would remain, right? What do you think? Should we see a new, remade Metal Gear for the new generation?
