    Kojima Won't Remake MGS1 or 2

    The iconic Metal Gear Franchise has spanned over a dozen games across 20 years. Most gamers, however, have only followed the franchise since it's reemergence on the PlayStation in 1998.

    And though the original 2 games were rereleased in the limited edition of Metal Gear Solid 3: Subsistence, many still haven't played the original games, leaving them clamoring for some sort of a remake. Metal Gear game designer Hideo Kojima addressed the subject of a remake.
    "I think creating that now wouldn't really be 'cool'. I'm not saying that I shouldn't do it, but I think that I probably won't," admits Kojima. "I personally don't think it's on the cards."

    However, he does go on to say that if a third party wanted to remake the games, similar to how Silicon Knights handled the GameCube remake of Metal Gear Solid, that could be a possibility. " If I get an offer from an overseas company saying they really want to do it, that could be an option".
