British Developers Just Add Water Looking to Remake Metal Gear Solid
After Snake got a vocal makeover a la Kiefer Sutherland, it now looks as if the entire first game might get a transformation of its own.
IGN reports that Konami’s Hideo Kojima is looking for a developer to remake the original Metal Gear Solid game using the Fox Engine, which powers the forthcoming fifth installment in the franchise, Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain.
Today, British developer Just Add Water penned a letter to Kojima, voicing their desire to helm the remake and listing their credentials.
The studio cited their “experience working with legendary IP (Oddworld Inhabitants),” the fact that many of the team’s members are fans of the Metal Gear franchise, their familiarity with the source material and that they just “really, really want to do it” as reasons for why they would make ideal candidates for the project.
Just Add Water has previously worked with already-released games, creating the HD version of Oddworld: Stranger’s Wrath and Oddworld: New ‘n’ Tasty. Metal Gear Solid could prove to be the next franchise they tackle, but we’ll have to wait and see if Kojima also sees them as the perfect fit.
