We heard rumors back in September about a potential remake of Hideo Kojima’s legendary PS1-era stealth title, Metal Gear Solid, and now, additional tidbits are beginning to come out about a next-gen revisit to Shadow Moses Island.

In his latest episode of Broken Silicon, Moore’s Law Is Dead confirmed that a Metal Gear Solid remake is indeed coming, and not only that, it’s being developed by Bluepoint Games—the very same studio that gave us those fantastic PS4 remasters of Shadow of the Colossus and the Uncharted trilogy (i.e., Uncharted, Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception).

This is also the same outfit responsible for the recently launched and critically acclaimed remake of Demon’s Souls, which early PlayStation 5 adopters are having a ton of fun with. According to Moore’s sources, Bluepoint Games has actually been working on the Metal Gear Solid remake alongside Demon Soul’s for three years now, so we should expect something equally as incredible in terms of visuals.

The original Metal Gear Solid was released in 1998 but still holds up very well to this day, as its characters and cinematics have become nothing short of iconic. Bluepoint Games’ rumored project would mark the second time that the title has been remastered, following Silicon Knights’ Metal Gear Solid: The Twin Snakes (2004) on Nintendo Gamecube.

  1. I imagine that weird UltraTaco character will be shedding tears of joy over this announcement (if it becomes true).

    No it doesn’t, its a PSX port that looks like a PSX game, just sharper (which actually works against it). The Gamecube version is a huge uplift though.
    I don’t think its the best idea. While I’d love the gfx improvement, the gameplay is quite simplistic by today standards.
    Maybe a reboot?

  3. You know I’m surprised Twin Snakes never got a remaster/modern port. That’d be a great game to throw up on GOG.

    Twin Snakes IS the remaster, unfortunately it was exclusive to the Gamecube, so no PC port.

    I think this is the game that should be the basis for a 4k remaster for the PC.

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA that is [I]very[/I] true. I guess I meant a remaster of a remaster. But yeah, a PC port for that game would’ve been cool. The Gamecube remake of RE1 did eventually make it to PC after all. Of course Capcom likes PC more than Konami does.

    Yeah I would agree with that.

    Actually, isn’t Twin Snakes a remake?
    [/QUOTE]
    I guess you could say that. The gameplay changes makes it more like to MGS2. Not a bad thing IMO.
