Hideo Kojima may be long gone, but that isn’t going to stop Konami from squeezing what’s left out of the Metal Gear franchise. According to listings spotted on the Taiwan Digital Game Rating Committee’s official website (via Gematsu), Metal Gear (1987), Metal Gear Solid (1998), and Metal Gear Solid 2: Substance (2002) are coming to the PC.

Metal Gear Solid and Metal Gear Solid 2: Substance actually received PC ports years ago, but they’re pretty much impossible to find. We’re also reading that Substance was plagued with graphical issues, so the re-releases will definitely be welcome – assuming that they aren’t effortless cash-grabs by Konami, that is.

RedGamingTech also claims that Konami is working on a Metal Gear Solid remake, which will be exclusive to the PlayStation 5. GameCube users already got something similar in 2004 courtesy of Silicon Knights (Metal Gear Solid: The Twin Snakes), but this second retread should really bring Shadow Moses Island to life.

Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater (2004) and Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots (2008) are supposedly getting re-releases, too, but they’ll simply be remasters.
