    'Shadow Moses' is the remake of the classic 1998 Metal Gear Solid in Unreal Engine 4 by some dedicated fans. The first trailer for the game was released just yesterday, entitled 'First Trailer' and it is visually impressive and aims to be the HD remake we never had. See it by yourself:


    Speaking of official stuff, the team does not have carte blanche from Konami to release the remake. However they are aware that some talks need to take place and have posted the following on their Facebook page:

    Konami hasn't made any move as of yet, so we can still keep our hopes up. Hopefully things won't turn out to be as in the case of this Metal Gear remake by team Outer Heaven.

    With Airam Hernandez at the helm, he says that it all started as a project to recreate MGS environments and make a "museum game" for those who wanted to explore the base with current technology. Following increasing support and interest for the project from people all over the internet, he decided to make an entire remake of the game.

    For more info, updates, artworks and videos, check out their Facebook page, Twitter account and Youtube channel.

    "Please, respect this decision."

    My poor fellow, Konami and respect go together like Castlevania and pachinko.

    This won't totally get a C&D and its development won't at all get halted

    I understand these guys are hungry for attention, hype and e-penis stroking but when there is a 100% chance of your work getting shut down, you should probably hold out with the announcements until the game is released.

    Wow! That is impressive to say the least.
    The work done especially in those environments and the details alone takes a lot of work.

    This looks really interesting, I'd be interested in possibly finally getting started with MGS with this remake. I wouldn't be too quick to assume this will be shut down. Konami needs good PR these days real bad and endorsing this remake would be a good place to start. Also, several fan remakes have survived in the past-- Black Mesa is even sold on Steam now.

    I like the way he thinks but he's forgetting that Konami only thinks of ways to make money from their games and what better way than pachinko machines? It combines popular franchises and the addictiveness of keep popping coins into it.

    Idiot, the way you do this sort of thing is to just release it when it's done, so it's out there (once something's out there, it's out there) not some ridiculous hope that Konami will be so pleased with your openness that out of the kindness of their hearts they'll just miraculously decide to grant permission.

    No. No more than I respect the decision of someone who gets drunk and plays russian roulette.

    While the choice of words is rather harsh, I agree. You can't get something off the internet once it's been uploaded. Until then, a C&D can completely kill a project with legal repercussions. After release, you can delete the file from your server, it'll circulate as it pleases.

    You owe it to yourself to play the original PS1 title in all its glory. It's completely playable as it has aged well, do it!

    Wish someone would do this for Mega Man Legends. If we can't get the 3rd one, having an HD remake of the first doesnt seem like too much to ask.

    I'm sorry, but all these UE4 demonstrations simply show that people just don't have ideas of their own anymore. Why make up something original when you can use someone else's property and pray to the Almighty that the owners of said property won't take negative action towards you?
