The Definitive METAL GEAR SOLID set

Konami Digital Entertainment B.V. has announced it is to release the definitive METAL GEAR SOLID collection across Europe, in the form of the desirable METAL GEAR SOLID: THE LEGACY COLLECTION compilation.

Acting as the ultimate collation of METAL GEAR SOLID titles, the compilation is available exclusively for PlayStation®3. It spans every METAL GEAR SOLID created by Hideo Kojima to date, and also includes rare items which have not been available for several years.

METAL GEAR SOLID: THE LEGACY COLLECTION includes METAL GEAR SOLID, METAL GEAR SOLID 2: HD Edition, METAL GEAR SOLID 3: HD Edition (featuring the original MSX versions of METAL GEAR and METAL GEAR 2), METAL GEAR SOLID: Peace Walker HD Edition, METAL GEAR SOLID: SPECIAL MISSIONS and METAL GEAR SOLID 4: Trophy Edition. The collection also includes both METAL GEAR SOLID DIGITAL GRAPHIC NOVELS which are illustrated by acclaimed artist, Ashley Wood, and the second of which was never released in Europe.

METAL GEAR SOLID: THE LEGACY COLLECTION celebrates the seminal work of Hideo Kojima, Japan’s master game creator, and creator of the stealth action game genre. Mr Kojima’s vision and art for story-telling has seen the METAL GEAR SOLID series become a global phenomenon. The player controls a secret agent from an elite special forces unit who is sent on solo stealth missions through enemy installations, vast jungles, and the thick of battle. Mixing action, stealth, and set within a stunning universe inhabited by a wide range of sympathetic and utterly evil villains, METAL GEAR SOLID: THE LEGACY COLLECTION marks a perfect chance to reacquaint with, or sample for the first time, the METAL GEAR SOLID universe ahead of the release of METAL GEAR SOLID V: THE PHANTOM PAIN.

METAL GEAR SOLID: THE LEGACY COLLECTION will be released for PlayStation®3 in September. For more information, please contact Steve Merrett at Voltage PR on 020 7502 4462, or email steve@voltagepr.com.
