Konami revealed at a pre-E3 press conference just moments ago that beloved franchises Zone of Enders and Metal Gear Solid will be getting the HD remake treatment that’s ever-so popular in the gaming industry nowadays.
The Metal Gear Solid HD Collection comes bundled with HD re-releases of Metal Gear Solid 2, Metal Gear Solid 3 and an HD port of the previously PSP-exclusive Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker. Bizarrely, the original Metal Gear Solid that started the craze to begin with is noticeably absent from the compilation. The collection will be available for both the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, but PlayStation 3 users will get the added benefit of a “transferring feature”, although just what feature will bring is unknown at this time.
The Zone of Enders HD Collection includes remakes of Zone of Enders and Zone of Enders 2. Little is known about this compilation beyond that it will also launch on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 and will, like the Metal Gear Solid HD Collection, have some form of a transfer feature involving the PSP. Both compilations will include new art, remastered audio and, of course, achievements and trophies to go along with the new HD look.
Konami also teased plans for a Silent Hill HD Collection, but little to no details were shared; just that it would, at the least, include Silent Hill 2 and Silent Hill 3 in HD.
Both compilations are scheduled for a November launch window. E3 is just around the bend, so it’s likely we’ll have more details for you when the big event kicks off.
