Metal Gear Solid HD Collection for the PS Vita is finally upon us and Konami’s put together a rather snazzy release trailer.
While Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker is absent, you still Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty and Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater. If random snippets like MGS2 entering the Guinness Book of World Records for “Biggest Selling Stealth Game on the Playstation 2” don’t catch your fancy, then the gameplay will. Everything appears faithfully translated and bumped up in visual magnitude.
The trailer also helpfully outlines the various new Touch features. How this will work in actual gameplay situations remains to be seen, but it appears quite easy and intuitive.
One of the more awesome features, though, is “Transfarring”. If you have a copy of Metal Gear Solid HD Collection for your Playstation 3, you can transfer your save files to the PS Vita (and vice versa) to continue where you left off. It’s the ultimate continuous play experience, though it’s limited to Sony consoles.
And if that’s not enough, you can also play the original MSX versions of Metal Gear and Metal Gear 2: Solid Snake, along with all 5 Snake’s Tales missions from MGS2: Subsistence.
