Media Molecule Was Worried About Metal Gear Solid Content

Media Molecule boss Mark Healy has revealed the developer was a little worried how Hideo Kojima would see their take on Metal Gear Solid content in LittleBigPlanet:
“We were slightly worried that our first attempts weren’t going to go down too well."

“We see Metal Gear Solid as quite serious, a hardcore, intense thing. Obviously, what we did was quite cute, almost satirical. But they loved it. They’ve got a great sense of humour and they really embraced it.”
Co-founder Kareem Ettouney added the collaboration worked out well:
“It was really great. We met Mr Kojima in America, and he was telling us how excited he was, how much he liked the results."

“We got a lot of support from the Metal Gear Solid team – beautiful assets. Everyone was really excited. It was a very smooth example of collaboration which celebrated the two brands and retained the identity of the two.”
