Kojima: NES Metal Gear was “pitiful”

Hideo Kojima reveals his disdain for the NES port of his 1987 MSX original: “I had absolutely no participation in the development of the NES version. The NES version was a pitiful title developed cheaply and simply by a small team in Tokyo… Even though it was an abomination, it was during the bubble economy and it sold millions overseas. That title has only soiled my reputation.”
