IGN: Now there were a few things that fans of the series have easily picked up on in footage released of the game, such as Policenauts posters. Even the Mark II is reminiscent of Snatcher. I have a two part question. First, how many elements of previous games, such as Zone of the Enders or Snatcher, have helped to influence or shape game elements of MGS4? Secondly, would you return to Zone of the Enders or Snatcher possibly once you've put Metal Gear Solid 4 to rest?

Kojima: You might think that I might pass away because I'm putting everything into this past series! (laughs)

To answer your first question, none, actually – that's just a service to the fans, the genuine fans of Kojima Productions. Policenauts and Snatcher wasn't probably released in America and some other parts of the world outside of Japan. In Japan, there are still a lot of core fans who really love all of the series. Even Meryl – she used to appear in Policenauts – so it's a kind of service to say thank you to the fans, actually.

Finally, it's the end of Snake, so I'd really want to start something really fresh and new when I create the game for the next one. However, maybe the sequel to ZOE, or a remake of Snatcher, for instance, if I just participate as a producer, yeah, that could be possible.Cool, is this actually the first time he mentions a Snatcher remake himself? Smile

I had heard rumours of this before, but it's a good thing that The Master[tm] himself talks about it now. If he's ever about doing a remake of (SD-)Snatcher, I'll be the first one to buy that PlayStation 4 Wink

[Although, I did say the same for the MGS series... I should still buy a PS2, argh!]

IF he would do a remake/follow up of (SD-)Snatcher I hope he will use some of the original scc music!!!

Well, I guess MK Petit isn't introduced in MGS4 for nothing, so I'm optimistic Smile
