Konami and Nintendo announced today that Metal Gear Solid: Twin Snakes for the Gamecube is being developed at Silicon Knights under the supervision of Konami's Hideo Kojima and Nintendo's Shigeru Miyamoto.
To be released later this year, Gamespot.com has reported the game will include the story of the original MGS title, though will include an updated graphics engine and play mechanics.
I never did enjoy the Playstation's graphics and controller much. Having bought one specifically to play Final Fantasy VII when it was released back in Sept, 1997, I gave it away soon afterwards because I disliked the graphics and the controller's cryptic, non-intuitive button arrangement (square, circle, triangle, X -- their rather arbitrary placement made absolutely no sense to me at all). So when the original MGS was released back in 1998, I never had the opportunity to play. I am looking forward to the experience, especially since it will have the "Miyamoto touch".
