This particular game plan was about war, and was partly inspired by the Capcom game Commando , with Konami requesting he make a similar game, only for the MSX consoles. This decision was questioned by his bosses. This, along with the cancellation of his previous game, nearly led Kojima to leave Konami.
However, one of his bosses encouraged him to stay and convinced him to continue the development of the game. For the English version, Konami edited a number of the game's radio messages and removed others entirely. Some of the removed messages include almost all of Big Boss's comments regarding an item and weapon, some of Schneider's messages, and all of Steve 's calls.
Reportedly, only 86 of the game's messages were kept. In addition, some of the dialogue was also altered to accompany more European-based terms. For example, when boarding a movable truck, Snake says, "I goofed! The lorry started to move! Many substantial changes were made to the game during the conversion process, resulting in a drastically different game. A mobile phone version of Metal Gear was released only in Japan on August 18, The game is based on the original MSX2 version, but includes several additional features and changes.
The game includes all the changes made in the mobile phone version, as well as further enhancements. The English version contains a rewritten script as well, with a more complete translation than the earlier European MSX2 version. The North American version also has an optional Spanish script. It also includes some sound effects that were originally present in the MSX2 version of Metal Gear 2 , including the high pitched squeak that's uttered when a boss is hit, as well as the higher pitched version when their health is dangerously low upon being hit.
It also contains descriptions for the various weapons which had been left out of the original localization. Metal Gear itself makes a brief audio-only appearance in Act 3 of Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots , where the " Theme of Tara " is briefly and faintly heard in one of the houses in Midtown.
According to the Integral Podcast , the addition of the theme, besides as an Easter egg, was also meant to imply that the occupant of the house was playing Metal Gear. Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain retcons the final boss fight and ending of the game, as the character defeated within Outer Heaven is actually a body double of Big Boss, thus explaining how the latter was able to escape the fortress's destruction.
The ending also has Snake playing a cassette tape titled "Operation Intrude N", although its connection to the events of Metal Gear , if any, are not made clear. When interviewed following the development of The Twin Snakes , Kojima stated that he had no plans to develop remakes of the MSX2 games, although he did not dismiss the possibility of having a third party develop them.
Kojima later reiterated this on March 23, , feeling that it would necessitate that he rewrite most of the game's story. On May 31, , a fan-made 2. One reason is rumored to have been that the project wasn't as far enough along as Konami had hoped. Another rumored reason is that the developers had written the character Roy Campbell into the game without approval from Konami.
