Konami has had an strange fascination with Pachinko games over the past decade, but the game developer is finally beginning to regain its senses to better leverage the untapped potential of some of its legendary franchises. This is according to a new report from VGC, whose sources claim that Konami is genuinely dusting off Metal Gear, Castlevania, and Silent Hill with a series of exciting projects.

According to VGC’s report, one of Konami’s biggest upcoming games will be a remake of Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater. This is contrary to previous rumors that suggested Bluepoint Games is working on a remake of the original Metal Gear Solid. Sources claim that the remake is actually being helmed by a studio called Virtuos.

Per VGC:

Established in 2004, Virtuos is one of the largest game developers in the world and focuses on supporting the development of major triple-A games or bringing existing games to new platforms.

Recently it worked on the Switch ports of Dark Souls Remastered, The Outer Worlds and The BioShock Collection, as well as contributing art and content to blockbusters such as Battlefield 1, Uncharted 4 and Horizon Zero Dawn.

Konami is also said to be working on a new Castlevania game. This is supposedly a “reimagining” of the series that is currently in development internally at Konami with assistance from local external studios.

As for Silent Hill, there are reportedly multiple games in development. VGC was told that one of these projects was outsourced to a “prominent” Japanese developer this year.
