June 29th launch for METAL GEAR SOLID HD Collection on PlayStation®Vita

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.
