The Metal Gear franchise is headed to the PlayStation Vita this summer, as Konami has taken the wraps off of the Metal Gear Solid HD Collection, with some PS Vita-exclusive features. The PS Vita game is being directed by Hideo Kojima.
“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.”
Metal Gear Solid HD Collection features two complete games, Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty and Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater. The Metal Gear Solid HD Collection includes high-definition graphics (as you likely gathered from the title), optimized controls designed to take full advantage of the Vita’s touchscreen capabilities, and trophies that are shared via “Transfarring” (save data sharing) with the PlayStation 3 system.
We still think “Transfarring” is about the most ridiculous name ever.
