Today, Kojima productions have announced 2 HD Collections for the PS3 and 360. Metal Gear Solid HD Collection and Zone of the Enders HD Collection.
First of all, Kojima himself announced Metal Gear Solid HD Collection! Its been rumored for a while and its finally coming true. This collection will include MGS2, MGS3 and MGSPW HD Edition. In Japan, the game will be MGS2+MGS3 along with an MGS1 download code included in one box and MGSPW HD Edition in another box. These game will retail in November this year.
Next is Zone of the Enders HD Collection! Yes, a HD Remake of both games for the PS3 and 360 too! It will be ZOE and Anubis ZOE (aka ZOE2) remade in HD an released in 2012. Both Japan and overseas will get the same version of games.
Here’s some info on the HD Collections:
- These games are optimized for play on the PS3/360 .
- New UI (User interface)
- Redrawn high-res 2D art, effects, fonts
- New trophies/achievements
- Right analog stick and force feedback usage
- Transfarring system (save management system that locks PS3/PSP save sharing)
- Improved audio quality
This Transfarring system is exclusive to the PS3,PSP and NGP. It allows you to transfer data over from your PS3 to your PSP while you go out and it locks your PS3 save so that when you return from playing with your PSP, you can transfer your save data back to the PS3. This same system may work with MGS2 and MGS3 with PS3 and NGP in the future.
So are you guys excited for MGS and ZOE HD Collection? I know I sure am! Consider them already purchased, both the Japanese and English version on the PS3 and maybe the 360 version in English =)
