Out of all the games that gamers might want a remake of, 1998’s Metal Gear Solid has to be on top of the list, minus the Final Fantasy VII Remake of course.
Konami’s PlayStation masterpiece is one of the most influential releases the industry has ever seen, yet Konami has been quiet on whether or not a re-release would ever happen.
Well, some clever fellow took it upon himself to make his own Metal Gear Solid using new technology, so to speak.
Shadow Moses is an in-development project by Airam Hernandez, a part-time game designer and YouTuber, and by the looks of the first trailer, the game is anything but “amateur”.
And the weirdest thing has happened: Konami has been totally silent on the matter.
It’s weird because fans, gaming media and everyone in between has suggested that Konami would shut down the project immediately, but no such action has been taken.
Following up his initial reveal (and all the hype surrounding it), Hernandez then tweeted from the Shadow Moses account, saying that a “huge announcement” was coming on March 14, 2016. A release date announcement? Confirming Konami’s involvement? We’ll have to see…

Whether this game gets cancelled or not, it just goes to show the impact MGS has made on fans. Making a game is no small task, as it requires tremendous talent, money and time.
Doing something like this just proves that the world just can’t get enough of MGS. However, what’s truly interesting is Konami’s silence on the matter.
