Konami has announced it will release Metal Gear Solid HD Collection for PlayStation Vita in North America and Europe this summer. The news comes following today’s announcement of a June release date for the Japanese version.
“The new PlayStation Vita will provide fanatics with an exciting new way to enjoy Metal Gear Solid HD Collection,” said Tomoyuki Tsuboi, President of Konami Digital Entertainment, Inc. “We’re confident that gamers will be pleased with their experience and what the PlayStation Vita has to offer with its sleek design, HD graphics and unique controls.”
The PlayStation Vita version of the game, unlikes its PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 counterparts, only features two games, Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty and Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater. The collection is built upon high-definition visuals, offers optimized controls to “take advantage” of PlayStation Vita’s touchscreen capabilities, and can share save data with the PlayStation 3 version of the game using its built-in “Transfarring” system.
