Some guy from Konami had a Q&A with a game site. Here are the transcripts of that Q&A.

www.geocities.com/jaxoreturned/mgs3.txt

"Is Konami going to release some kind of Official port of the MSX port of
Metal Gear 1 & 2 in English?"
You're best bet will be with MGS:Twin Snakes. I don't know what kind of
connectivity Twin Snakes wil have, but doing something similar to what Retro
did with Metroid Prime and Fusion is definitely a possibility.

I'm not entirely sure if it's real or not, but the guy sounds like he knows quite some inside info.

we heard about these rumors as well and decided not to post about it yet. However, it would not surprise me if MG1 and MG2 were re-released sooner or later.

In Day of the Tentacle you can play the awfully bad first version of the game 'Maniac Mansion' when you find an old computer somewhere in the game. Maybe Konami will do something similar. However, especially in the case of MG2 I would be surprised if they did a direct MSX2 conversion, as the ending is quite MSX-only

(spoiler)

finding a Konami MSX cartridge which boots with VRAM: 01K (or Kio Marv when you read it upside down!! Tongue) isn't something Nintendo people would understand Smile

There are rumours Konami will create Metalgear 1 and 2 for GBA
This game will have a connection with Metal Gear: Twin Snakes just like Metriod on gamecube/gameboy has.

If you notice Konami recently re enacted IDSA copyright restrictions on Solid Snake, but did not
also re enact them on Metal Gear, Does this mean the upcoming GBA title Metal Gear Advance will in fact be a port of Solid Snake, lets all hope so Big smile

That still sounds strange to me because

- Many of the puzzles and jokes from Metal Geal 2: Solid Snake were re-used in MGS1 and MGS2
- The story is quite outdated right now
- The story contains some strong references to the MSX computer system,
