The rumors surrounding the remake of Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater continue to grow. Video game leaker Millie A recently Tweeted that series creator Hideo Kojima will act as a consultant on the remake. She adds that this advisory role also means Kojima will not directly work on the game himself. Instead, the plan is for him to provide input to the developers.
This decision, according to Millie A, stems from Konami president Hideki Haykawa’s belief that the game will sell better with Kojima’s name attached. As the creator of the original Metal Gear, Kojima developed a legendary reputation within the gaming community throughout his career. However, even in a small advisory role, Haykawa believes his name alone will help attribute to the remake’s success.
The rumors also state that Konami will outsource the Metal Gear Solid 3 remake to a third-party developer. The company speculated is Singapore-based studio Virtuos. The original rumor comes from a report made by Video Games Chronicle. The article also mentions how Konami restructured their company with plans to revive their largest franchises.
In addition to the Metal Gear Solid remake, the rumor also implies Konami has projects planned for Silent Hill and Castlevania. The new games will reportedly utilize both internal and external studios. As of now, however, Konami has not confirmed any of the rumored leaks. If they truly are working on these titles, we are likely quite a ways off from hearing anything official.
