Metal Gear, Silent Hill and Castlevania remakes on the way

Tech Highlights:

  • The first of these revivals is said to be a new Castlevania game, which is now under production internally at Konami in Japan with help from other Japanese firms, according to sources.

  • Castlevania, Metal Gear Solid, and Silent Hill titles are all being revived by Konami.

Virtuos, a Singapore-based studio, is purportedly working on a Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater remake, and Konami plans to release upgraded versions of the original Metal Gear Solid games ahead of the remake.

Finally, VGC reports multiple Silent Hill games are in development at various external development studios—one of which was outsourced to a prominent Japanese developer earlier this year.

Eurogamer has corroborated this report, noting that Konami has mulled over a Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater remake for some time, with one earlier, canned idea being a remake in Fox Engine with cutscenes repurposed from the Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater pachinko machine.

Back in February, Silent Hill series composer teased a project announcement—“the one you’ve been waiting for”—coming this summer in an interview with Al-Hub, which was taken down at the request of an unspecified party. While Konami has denied that it asked Al-Hub to remove its interview, Eurogamer noted that the company was not happy with Yamaoka’s tease.

Gematsu has also heard that a new Silent Hill is in development at a prominent Japanese developer. That studio is Kojima Productions, according to a publishing source that wishes to remain anonymous, who also said that the game is funded by Sony Interactive Entertainment.
