Konami seems to be slowly restarting its game production, and finally (FINALLY) we might see Metal Gear Solid again.
Konami recently announced that 35 of their “classic” games will return to Steam through their Konami store. Listed in games, the likes of Silent Hill and the Metal Gear Collection are making a comeback. Metal Gear was removed from all digital storefronts some time ago due to Konami failing to retain their license for historical game footage. Unfortunately, this announcement only included Steam, other storefronts such as PlayStation and Xbox haven’t seen anything yet.
According to a Reddit post and several tweets, it looks like there’s something else afoot. Rumor has it that Metal Gear Solid 1-3 is going to be remastered for a new generation. Think along the lines of the “HD Collection”, where games are brought to new consoles. The entire franchise, except for MGSV, and one spin-off title we won’t even mention (Survive….), skipped the entire last gen with no releases or ports.
The announcement is rumored for TGS later this month.
Rumor has it that all of the games will be released on their own and then bundled into one collection. However, the collection notes that it will come with MG1 and 2, instead of Peace Walker, which would be a total shame. Peace Walker being one of the best games in the series, we hope it will be included. It should be noted that the HD collection included Peace Walker outside of Japan, and this is to be announced at TGS, this could be the reason.
Konami is also said to be working on total overhauls of Castlevania, Silent Hill (2 games) and MGS3. However, while people are excited about TGS, it’s worth noting that these announcements probably won’t happen there and instead at a later event, either at a PlayStation showcase or at the awards show. game of the year.
