Konami releases Hideo Kojima's original design for Metal Gear Solid 2

Konami has released Hideo Kojima's original draft design document for Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty. The document is 38 pages long and completely translated into English by Marc Laidlaw and is a fascinating read into the early development ideas and strategies. The document was originally written on the 8th of January 1999.

I was reading through a SH2 FAQ and came across ‘the letter’ from SH2. I really loved it and wanted more readers to have a chance to see it. The scene where Maria [sic] reads it, if you have never seen it, is one of the three most emotional moments I have ever had with the actors. The actress cried after she read it and many of us were getting a little misty-eyed. Try to listen to it on Youtube if you can. It was a great moment.

If reviewers want to give us a hard time about it because they're misunderstanding the game we made, it's not for me to tell them that they're wrong, absolutely not. But I wish people would get it out of their head that we made a Mario competitor, because we didn't.
