Kojima shares Metal Gear Solid HD and 3DS details

Regional differences and photo camouflage

Hideo Kojima shared on Twitter today new details surrounding the Metal Gear Solid HD Collection and 3DS remake of Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater.

Kojima first cleared up a few questions surrounding the Metal Gear Solid HD Collection. The Japanese version of the collection includes Metal Gear Solid 2 and Metal Gear Solid 3. There is also a product code to download Metal Gear Solid 1. Metal Gear Solid 3 is the Subsistence version, so both Metal Gear 1 and Metal Gear 2 (the MSX versions) are also included. Metal Gear Solid 2 is the Substance version, though, there are only Japanese voice-overs (there were many questions about this, according to Kojima). In total, the Japanese collection includes Metal Gear 1, Metal Gear 2, a product code for Metal Gear Solid 1, Metal Gear Solid 2, and Metal Gear Solid 3. Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker HD is sold as a separate package.

The western version of the collection includes Metal Gear Solid 2, Metal Gear Solid 3, and Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker. Metal Gear Solid 3 is the Subsistence version in the west, as well, so Metal Gear 1 and Metal Gear 2 are also included. And, like Japan, Metal Gear Solid 2 is the Substance version. There is no product code for Metal Gear Solid 1, however. You’ll have to buy that on the PlayStation Store yourself. In total, the western collection includes Metal Gear 1, Metal Gear 2, Metal Gear Solid 2, Metal Gear Solid 3, and Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker.

Kojima shared a sneak peak at some of the trophy / achievement icons for Metal Gear Solid 2 and 3:

Metal Gear Solid: Snake Eater 3D includes a photo camouflage function. It allows you to take a photo with the 3DS camera and wear it in-game as camouflage. To demonstrate, Kojima took a picture of a shopping bag. He also shared a look at the game’s touchscreen controls.

Metal Gear Solid HD Collection launches November for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. Metal Gear Solid: Snake Eater 3D launches in 2012 for Nintendo 3DS.
