Bluepoint Games' strange tweet teases a possible Metal Gear Solid remake

By Sean Carey, 12 days ago
While everyone was out trick or treating and celebrating the spookiest day of the year, Bluepoint Games posted a cryptic tweet that went mostly unnoticed. The strange tweet teases what we think could be a number of possible remakes or remasters. Bluepoint brought the HD versions of Metal Gear Solid 2 and 3 to consoles, and this bizarre tweet could be suggesting something to do with another Metal Gear Solid game.

The tweet reads: "So calm this spooky night. A symphony of rumors - not one, but two - return from shadow. A resistance to dart home as black monsters escape twisted hills to wander lands and syphon souls. Filter your candy collections, soft from solid, and be eco-friendly. Have a metal Halloween."


Many are speculating that this tweet points to a number of possible games. Some think it could be remasters or remakes for Castlevania Symphony of the Night or possibly the PlayStation exclusives, Demon's Souls, Syphon Filter or Shadow of the Colossus.

Bluepoint has been responsible for a number of different PlayStation ports and remakes. Bluepoint brought the God of War Collection and The Ico & Shadow of the Colossus Collection to the PlayStation 3. More recently, Bluepoint remastered the three PS3 releases of the Uncharted series bringing them to the PS4 in the form of Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection, and they managed a spectacular ground-up rebuild of Shadow of the Colossus on PS4 too.

Bluepoint's president Marco Thrush spoke with Wired as part of its story about the upcoming PS5. Thrush said to Wired, "We're working on a big one right now. I'll let you figure out the rest." It's likely that the tweet mentioned above and that quote hints towards a release for the PS5, but what that is, nobody knows and we can only speculate. This new tweet certainly fuels more speculation about a possible Metal Gear Solid remaster.

What games do you think Bluepoint is hinting act? And what would you like to see remastered for the PS5? Let us know in the comments below.

its...Demon Souls guys. The devs name was attached to a rumor to it earlier in the year. This fits the bill more than Metal Gear. Konami would have it be multiplatform. The first hint they gave is it was BIG, the second it was an exclusive PS5 title.

So it could be any of the following

Ape Escape (unlikely but website updated and trademark got renewed)
Demon Souls
Legend of Dragoon
Syphon Filter (Why if Bend Studios is still around and hot after Days Gone?)

A Legend of Dragoon remake would absolutely be a day 1 buy for me

It is kind of odd we’ve never seen a Twin Snakes port...

I would be ok with just that as well.

I'll eat my hat if it is MGS.

It'll more likely to be Demon's Soul. BUT I would love to be wrong in this case!

I don't think it will be a port of Twin Snakes, as it seems to be a locked Nintendo exclusive.

I feel like it's Castlevania Lords of The Shadow 1 and 2 ... I dunno ... probably wrong but that would be nice.
There are three kinds of people in this world. People who can count and people who can't.
