We were around when Metal Gear Solid hit the PS1 first-time around (how old do we feel? – ed) but the idea of playing with Snake and the rest on the Vita in HD really, really appeals…
Konami Digital Entertainment GmbH today confirmed its Metal Gear Solid HD Collection title for PlayStation®Vita will be released on June 29th.
Created by critically acclaimed director, Hideo Kojima, Metal Gear Solid HD Collection includes two beloved classics: Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty and Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater.
Both enjoy upgraded graphics from the original PlayStation®2 versions, and also make use of Kojima Productions’ proprietary Transfarring system, where players can transfer save data from their PlayStation®3 Metal Gear Solid HD Collection to their PlayStation®Vita system and start the action from where they left off.
Metal Gear Solid HD Collection for the PlayStation®Vita allows fans to experience the series like never before with bespoke control mechanisms that take full advantage of the handheld’s unique touch-screen and rear touchpad systems.
Using just their fingers, gamers can zoom in to the game’s cut-scenes, peek around corners, interrogate enemies, cycle through weapons/items, and perform quick attacks with their knife.
