Metal Gear Solid HD collection for PS Vita gets release date

May 24th, 2012 by Marc Comments

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.

Press release:
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.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
