Metal Gear Solid: The Twin Snakes Impressions

We see a new video of the MGS remake. See what we thought.


Metal Gear Solid: The Twin Snakes

At Konami's press event today, we saw a brief presentation on Metal Gear Solid: The Twin Snakes, the upcoming GameCube remake of the original Metal Gear Solid. The game seems to be coming along fairly well on Nintendo's hardware, although we didn't see much that really surprised us. The Twin Snakes does look more or less like the original Metal Gear Solid with upgraded graphics, which is of course exactly what it is.

We got some new info on the game to go along with the brief video clip. For one, the game's "polygon demos," or cinematic scenes, are being directed by established Japanese film director Ryuhei Kitamura. Kitamura is working with motion-capture actors to make the scenes even more dramatic and movielike than they were in the original game. Also, the game will be integrating some of the gameplay concepts seen in Metal Gear Solid 2, like first-person shooting and hiding bodies in lockers.

We'll be playing The Twin Snakes tomorrow morning on the show floor, and we'll bring you impressions of that experience as soon as possible.
