In 2008, staff from Metroid Prime developer Retro Studios broke off to form a new company, now known as Armature. It was initially partnered with EA, although nothing has come of that deal, and at this point no projects have been released that are officially attached to Armature.
It’s quite a surprise, then, to see this studio’s name on this Japanese website for the PlayStation Vita version of Metal Gear Solid: HD Collection. Its name is listed as co-developer along with Bluepoint Games, which was responsible for the console versions, along with many other HD remakes this generation.
Those who decide to pick up Metal Gear Solid 2 and 3 this summer will be playing the first games by Armature Studio, and we hope that we will be seeing original content from them in the future.
