Konami is reportedly remastering classic Metal Gear Solid games. According to a new leak, the company will make the remasters announcement at Tokyo Game Show 2022 following a report by Video Games Chronicle’s Andy Robinson who suggested that it won’t be a huge announcement, but will surely excite fans.
The information was pieced together by a recent Reddit post. Leaker Dusk Golem added to the rumour mill stating that it’s likely remasters for Metal Gear Solid 1-3, but not remakes. Furthermore, each will be released separately which will be followed by a collection/bundle that will include the original Metal Gear 1 and 2 as a bonus.
The Metal Gear series was originally developed by Hideo Kojima and was followed by the more popular Metal Gear Solid for PlayStation 1. Two sequels, Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty and Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater, released on PlayStation 2 in the early 2000s.
A previous report by VGC revealed that the upcoming Konami announcement at TGS 2022 will not be related to Silent Hill, Castlevania or Metal Gear Solid. However, this slightly contradicts Dusk Golem’s report which states that it’s related to Metal Gear Solid after all. Robinson posted a follow-up tweet revealing that it’s “likely remasters“, though it’s hard to imagine any other Konami property that will “excite fans” quite like Metal Gear Solid.
As with all rumours, take this with a grain of salt until we have confirmation from Konami. Tokyo Game Show will kick off on 15 September and feature publishers and developers from the likes of Square Enix, Bandai Namco, Sega, Capcom and more. Konami will also be in attendance.
In related news, a new Silent Hill game is reportedly set to be revealed this September according to an exchange between Robinson and GamesBeat journalist Jeff Grubb on Twitter. While it’s unlikely to be at Tokyo Game Show, fans speculate that it could be announced at a rumoured September PlayStation showcase.
