Hideo Kojima took the stage at Sony’s E3 2016 press briefing to unveil his new project: Death Stranding. The title reunites the renowned game director with actor Norman Reedus, who were previously set to work together on Silent Hills before Konami unceremoniously cancelled that game.
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?
