No Stranger To Smart Remakes, Just Add Water Wants To Tackle Metal Gear

Recently, Metal Gear mastermind Hideo Kojima mentioned that he'd love to see a remake of Metal Gear Solid. His Twitter invitation didn't go unheard, it seems.

Just Add Water, the studio behind the remake of Oddworld: Stranger's Wrath and the upcoming Abe's Oddysee remake Oddworld: New 'n' Tasty wants in. In a statement on the company's website today, Stewart Gilray and company have laid out their bona fides.

Dear Mr Kojima,

We read with great excitement on VG247 that you were looking for a studio to work with to develop a Metal Gear Solid remake using the Fox Engine, that your team has been hard at work creating.

We at Just Add Water feel ideally positioned to do the remake justice for several reasons

  1. We have experience working with legendary IP (Oddworld Inhabitants) and treating the subject matter with the respect it deserves.
  2. Many members of our team are huge Metal Gear fans, with very good knowledge of the source material.
  3. We really, really want to do it.

For evidence of our abilities, please check out not only the HD treatment of Oddworld: Stranger’s Wrath, released on PlayStation3, VITA and PC, but the current re-creation of Abe’s Oddysee, titled Oddworld: New ‘n’ Tasty.

We eagerly await your response.

Love and cuddles,

The JAW Team.

We're with you, Just Add Water. We are very eager to hear what Kojima-san has to say about your generous offer.
