Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker did not start as a Hideo Kojima game. Originally, Kojima intended to lay out the overall concepts and guidelines, then let the rest of the development team take the reins. But when the themes of Peace Walker started coming together, such as nuclear deterrence and the Cold War, Kojima worried it may be too confusing and alienating for a younger audience, which was the target demographic. As a result, Kojima became more involved, serving as the director, producer, and writer, in an effort to keep the narrative as clear as possible.

The color yellow and butterflies are prominent themes in the game because Konami wanted to have more of a pop-feel in Peace Walker that would appeal to the younger school aged kids, which were the target demographic.

Hideo Kojima revealed in an interview that Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker had a major inspiration. At the time, Kojima's son was fascinated with Pokemon: Gold and Silver and Kojima didn't understand why until he started to play them. He loved playing them so much, that he ended up playing through them twice and became addicted. In Pokemon: Gold and Silver, after you play through the main area of the game, Joto, you gain access to a redone version of Canto, from Pokemon: Red and Blue, the two preceding games. Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker also features vital story sequences after the credits for players who fulfilled specific requirements. At the time of Peace Walker's release, it was the most involved post-credit content for a Metal Gear game and it was inspired by Kojima's experience with Pokemon.

A recurring theme in the Metal Gear series is to show the danger of pursuing something at the cost of everything else. This is present in the game, as Dr. Strangelove is shown to idolize The Boss so much, that she agrees to develop the mammal pod in an attempt to resurrect The Boss, even though it will directly lead to a nuclear attack.

In Japan, Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker sold over 570,000 copies during it's first two weeks. Despite internal hopes that the game would be an international hit, sales were very poor outside of Japan, failing to chart in most countries. According to Hideo Kojima, weak sales of Peace Walker, are what caused Kazuhiro Miller to be removed from the covers of the international versions of Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes.

Peace Walker was remastered for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 as part the Metal Gear Solid HD Collection. This remaster features HD visuals, 60fps framerate, touched up textures, and improved controls. Although this HD collection was also released on the PS Vita, Peace Walker was not included. Series creator Hideo Kojima explained that the original PSP version was backwards compatible with the Vita, and the Vita did a great job upscaling the visuals along with being able to override code to improve controls. e.g. Allow the Vita's second joystick to control the camera whereas the PSP had the face buttons control the camera.

Before Peace Walker, Metal Gear games were largely about traveling along a linear path toward a single objective preferably through the use of stealth. Although that's also true in Peace Walker, players have much more freedom with their type of play style and smaller decisions, made when controlling Mother Base, could impact something else quite differently.

The first time in a Metal Gear game where the player has freedom of choice in the boss battles. This is due to having specific parts from the mechs intact after you defeat them, as it will allow players to have access to the later parts of the story due the mech parts being used to develop your own Metal Gear, Zeke.
