Sources claim Konami is working on a Metal Gear Solid 3 remake, new Silent Hill, Castlevania reboot

Konami was once one of the most beloved video game publishers, home to blockbuster franchises like Castlevania, Metal Gear, and Silent Hill. In recent years, however, the company has been content to sit on its IPs while raking in cash through casino and mobile games. Losing Hideo Kojima following the release of Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, along with the dramatic removal of PT from the PlayStation Store as well as the cancellation of the working title Silent Hills was yet another disappointment to fans. The idea that Konami would one day return to form has been a fantasy of many for years, but for once, there might be a little substance to the idea.

Video Games Chronicle is no stranger to reporting on rumors, having a solid track record of leaking insider information and just as much of a reputation for news that went absolutely nowhere. In the past, they've accurately reported on the existence of what would become Super Mario 3D All-Stars months before it was revealed, were among the first to leak that Horizon Forbidden West would be delayed, but were also highly certain of both The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess and Wind Waker HD both coming to the Nintendo Switch prior to the end of 2021, which does not appear to be the case.

Now, VGC has come forward, saying it has multiple insider, anonymous sources claiming that Konami has big plans for the future. These claims include the existence of a brand new Castlevania title, which would be a "reimagining" of the series. Another source says that a remake of a Metal Gear Solid game is in the works, though it will not involve studio Bluepoint Games, nor will it be the first entry as other rumors have stated. Rather, the project is supposedly a remake of Metal Gear Solid 3, with Virtuos, the team behind the Nintendo Switch versions of Dark Souls Remastered, The Outer Worlds, and The BioShock Collection in charge. VGC also believes that a more general remaster of the original Metal Gear Solid games is in the works for modern consoles. similar to 2011's Metal Gear Solid HD Collection.

Following up on a report VGC made at the start of the year, there's also a new Silent Hill game in the works--in fact, there are "multiple" ones in development. Supposedly one of the titles is being made by "a prominent Japanese developer", though they've also claimed that The Medium developers Bloober Team could also possibly be working on another Silent Hill game as well.

No Hideo Kojima, no Metal Gear.
No Team Silent, No Silent Hill.
No Koji Igarashi, No Castlevania.

Simple as that.

Even if the rumors are true, New games or remakes, those games are going to fail and fail badly with Konami in charge without the original creators.
that didn't stop them from releasing that turd of a Castlevania gacha game on Apple Arcade just last month :P

I'm hoping we get a proper Silent Hill. Something like 1 or 2 with modern camera and controls. As in mysterious setting with monsters reflecting the characters' experiences and puzzles, don't want it to devolve into modern Resident Evil, especially after all the mediocre games SH already has
You doubt, but they'll have their best monkeys working on it.
Doesn't matter how many monkeys you put in front of a type writer, what good is getting them to write Shakespeare if they just write a bunch of out of context quotes?

MGS3 was my absolute favorite. I can't count the number of times I've played it!
at some point I even wrote a guide on how to locate the little frogs (the ones that you had to shoot to get the bonus items) which took me several weeks and a capture card back then haha

I would love a remaster with 4K and improved stuff, like Mass Effect Legendary but perhaps with more content.

You can now play the pachinko games in 4k, 120hz directly to your home. Don't forget that you need real money to buy the balls. You can redeem prizes such as 3d models, artwork a d listen to the soundtrack /s

why remake mgs3 when the original mgs is the one needing a remake the most? makes no sense imo, seems they have a hard on with big boss and dont care about snake...

In this day and age it shows people love retro and play original games roughly from the 2nd gen onwards and the playstation if no different... remakes and remasters are becoming quite common especially when you can go back to classic titles that people loved to play and bring them up to date so the original & new fans can get a taste of amazing wholesome games.

If this is all true with the metal gear series i would personally be so happy and i could imagine millions would feel the same..

lets hope it is real and they remaster MGS 1-4 and have a complete new package of 1-5 (as 5 is on last gen)

I don't see the point in "remaking" mgs3, it was a good game at its time, but do we really need a remake of snake running from map a to b avoiding enemies then facing a boss, then going from here to there and face another boss.

I played it again recently and i didnt notice until then that it really is very basic, you go through a few maps and all the bosses are lines up waiting to die.

And as for zelda, its no shit that yet again nintendo will be lazy and port more of its old games, not that i was a fan of either ww and tp as they both got boring, botw gkt boring within the first hour.

I hope they dont port the wii u version of ww, its over use of bloom effecf was terrible, if they're going to port, then i hope its the pube version.

Tho i wouldn't pay for them as i already own them, i don't see the point in buying a new console to play and pay full price again for games i already own.

Nintendont are getting as bad as cashcom, lets see how many times we can get away with porting the same old shit.

Tho saying that, nintendo games rarely change, its always the same shit rehashed and recycled.

Mario bros
Mario
Zelda
Kirby
Pikmin
Pokemon
Luigi manshion
Smash brothers
Mario kart
Metroid (tho its fps by another company is yet to be seen, never know, if Nintendont give them freedom, it could end up not been the same shit recycled)
Mario "insert activity", just waiting on fucking football.
Mario party

With nintendo its the same shit, very little difference, or if it does (botw) it's a very shit attempt at doing what others have already done.

Now sit back and wait for the loyal Nintendont fanboys to rush in defence of their beloved Nintendont and try tell me i am wrong for why i dislike buying the same old recycled shit and ports of games i already own.

The excuse of it been portible is irrelevant to me as i dont game on the bus or train.

Then the, ohh but what if you "missed" it first time, whicn again is another fanboy in denial, if you didn't buy it back then, then why would you now pay nearly £200 for a console and full price for a game, you could pay £5-10 on a console you already own.

I just know for a fact with them phasing out the 3ds, the switch will be its replacement as they will need a new console to remain in the market with the ps5/SX coming out, in order to keep the so called "third party" support.

But what we will get is yet again, nintendont promise better third party support, but they will restrict this by releasing again inferior hardware with bs gimmicks, cutting their costs but fooling the sheep theyre getting something great.

When what you're getting is a sunlar ps4/xbx1 with some new bs gimmicks to make it sound better than what it is.

And then commence nintendonts "better" third party support in that third party devs port all its ps4/xbx1 titles they didnt get when its titles was new.

But it will still fail to get all the new titles that the next gens are getting.

For proof, look at how the wii u failed, devs was done with fhe last gen hardware and didnt want to pay a separate dev studio to develop said game solely for nintendont as they learned it doesnt bring in the return, as shown on the wii m, when devs tried to make a version just for the wii, that soon ended.

All nintendont care about is making sure they have the gimmicks to make its inferior hardware sell and they do so, to dominate the market in that third parties are put off paying a dedicated team to make an inferior port of its new title to run on old inferior hardware.

Thus leaving the playing field open to nintendonts same old recycled titles, dominating the market.

But its devoted sheep are happy to keep rebuying the same shit and call people out as been wrong when it's all there in front of you, been the case since the cube.

Now this is a gamer who started off as nintendont been his only console in the house.

But nintendont are too ignorant to see how the gaming industry has changed, all they see is how can we profit by spending less.

I know..... tablets, kids are loving tablets, lets make a tablet console, they failed first timr, only succeed 2nd time thanks to copying nvidia shield.

But the switch has ended up been a port wh0re and shitty indy apps you'd normally get for free on other devices, but pay full whack for because its nintendont.

But anyway sit back and watch it happen, i remember the fanboys quoting me before the switch came out, about if becoming a port wh0re, and look at it, even dating back to ps2 that they missed out on.

So enjoy your "4k" nintendont console, which won't be a switch, it'll be a new inferior console likely tied to support the seitch.

Now try hold back fanboys, we all know this post is goijg to upset you, but your going to be quoting a guy who has been playing nintendont from day one, while most of you was still in your dads nutsack.

I dont care if you are a beloved fan and want to try demand i am wrong, all i can say tell me all these ports do not exist.

Night all.
