Metal Gear Solid HD Collection Coming to PlayStation Vita This Summer

Konami confirmed today that the Metal Gear Solid HD Collection will be making its way to Sony’s recently-launched PlayStation Vita handheld this summer–most of it, at least.

As you may recall, the Metal Gear Solid HD Collection which saw a release on consoles included HD-ified remasters of Metal Gear Solid 2, Metal Gear Solid 3 and the previously PSP-exclusive Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker.

While the first two will be included in the PlayStation Vita port, Konami confirmed that the HD remaster of Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker will not be included in the PS Vita version of Metal Gear Solid HD Collection.

On a lighter note, Konami added that the PS Vita version of MGS HD comes with “optimized controls” for Sony’s handheld which Konami says “take full advantage of the PlayStation Vita system touchscreen capabilities”. Additionally, MGS HD for the Vita will include Kojima Production’s “Transfarring” feature, which allows for gamers to swap saves between their Vita and PS3.

“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.”
