Released exclusively on the GameCube in 2004, the remake of the original Metal Gear Solid , subtitled The Twin Snakes , may be re-released on modern platforms. This was hinted at by well-known insider Nick Baker .
Shortly after publishing the news about the upcoming remasters of the first Metal Gear Solid , he posted a pair of emoji with snakes on his social networks.
Recall that Metal Gear Solid: The Twin Snakes was developed for the GameCube by Konami and the now disbanded Silicon Knights studio with the support of Nintendo . The project was overseen by Metal Gear father Hideo Kojima and Super Mario creator Shigeru Miyamoto .
The idea was to release a remake of the first Metal Gear Solid with gameplay elements from Metal Gear Solid 2. One of the features of the game was the cutscenes from the Japanese director Ryuhei Kitamura – originally he was going to follow the original approach of Kojima, but he asked that everything be done in a proprietary director’s style.
The game received good ratings, but fans argued about Kitamura’s cutscenes for a long time – some liked them, while others considered the director’s style inappropriate for Metal Gear Solid. Kitamura made extensive use of the Bullet Time technique , inspired by The Matrix.
The Twin Snakes came out in 2004 and has never been reissued.
