Slice the enemy's throat.

Metal Gear Solid HD Collection for PlayStation Vita has touch controls, Kojima Productions boss Hideo Kojima has revealed.

Doing what he does best – posting images on Twitter, that is – Kojima confirmed the game will utilize the rear touch panel.

“New controls of PSvita. Major Zero’s line,” he wrote in one update. “You can slice enemy’s throat with knife if you flick the touch pad behind.”

Another update reads, “Major Zero. If you pinch out left & right on touch panel behind w/ 1st person camera, you can stretch up yourself.”
