Fable fans waiting for the HD remake of what is arguably the best game in the series are going to have to wait a little bit longer. Lionhead by way of Ted Timmins has stated that the studio needs a bit more time to provide the best Fable experience for fans. He even hinted at some “top secret announcements” for the game. So, it’s entirely possible that Lionhead is working on some new content for the decade old action RPG.
Developer of the recent Oddworld: Stranger’s Wrath remake as well as upcoming New ‘N’ Tasty Just Add Water is hoping to capitalize on Hideo Kojima’s desire to see the first game remade in Fox Engine. The developer has some past experience working with a highly regarded IP, Oddworld, and hopes that their respect for the existing property and the fact that they’re “huge Metal Gear fans, with very good knowledge of the source material” will land them the gig.
Whether or not an HD remake of the first MGS happens, the idea is certainly exciting. Do you think Just Add Water is up to the challenge? If not, what studio would be your dream choice to re-envision Metal Gear Solid?
