Konami devs discuss Metal Gear Solid Delta: Snake Eater

One of the biggest surprises at the PlayStation Showcase was the announcement of Metal Gear Solid Delta: Snake Eater – a remake of the iconic PS2 game from Hideo Kojima. That said, all we have seen so far is a CG teaser trailer offering little in the way of information. Fortunately, the developers have now come out to answer many of the fans’ most pertinent questions.

In an interview conducted by IGN, the publication spoke to the Konami devs behind Metal Gear Solid Delta: Snake Eater. One of the first questions asked was whether Kojima is involved in the project. Unsurprisingly, the team confirmed that he is not. Likewise, series artist Yoji Shinkawa will not return for this remake.

No specific studio was named as being responsible for the remake, leading fans to wonder who is actually involved in this project. Asking this very question, the team responded to IGN claiming that the central role has been handed to internal Konami developers who have been “involved in the production of the past [games in the] Metal Gear series” – with Virtuos assisting development.

When asked about the remake’s name change, a spokesperson stated “The Delta symbol (Δ) was chosen because its meaning fits the concept of the remake project. Delta is a character from the Greek alphabet that means ‘change’ or ‘difference’ in mathematics and variables, and also has the meaning of changing an amount without changing the structure.”

Based on what has been said it seems as though Konami are going for a faithful remake of MGS3, not wanting to mess with Kojima’s work. Hopefully we get to see actual gameplay sooner rather than later.
