Metal Gear was originally developed and published by Konami for the MSX2. While it wasn’t the first game Hideo Kojima was involved with, it was the first he designed and produced. It was ported to the NES without his knowledge. The NES version is generally inferior to the MSX2 version, and features a distinctly different endgame. The manual of the US version is infamous for featuring a storyline that has nothing to do with the game.
