Metal Gear Solid 1 included in MGS HD Collection (but only in Japan… well, maybe)

Posted By | On 12th, Aug. 2011

Hideo Kojima announced (Twitter) a while back that in the upcoming Metal Gear Solid HD Collection, the PSOne Metal Gear Solid will also be included along with MGS2, MGS3 and MGS: Peace Walker, the PSP game that was released last year.

“Metal Gear HD series. The domestic version is a package of MGS2 and MGS3,” he wrote.

“But, there is also a product code for MGS1, and MGS3 is subsistence specification, so MG1 and MG2 which were sold on MSX are included.

“This means, you can enjoy MG1, MG2, MGS1, MGS2 and MGS3 with this one!”

However, it is not clear if this specific collection will be available outside of Japan, meaning regions outside of Japan might have access to just MGS2, MGS3 and MGS: Peace Walker.

Andriasang reports that the Japanese HD Collection will include HD remakes of Metal Gear Solid 2 and 3, and a code for Game Archives version of Metal Gear Solid. The MGS3 version included in the collection will be Subsistence, meaning fans will also have access to the MSX originals- Metal Gear 1 and 2. So, in total, the collection will include Metal Gear, Metal Gear 2, Metal Gear Solid, Metal Gear Solid 2 and Metal Gear Solid 3.

The HD remake of Peace Walker will be sold separately in Japan.

Outside of Japan, according to Adriasang’s report, the HD Collection will include MGS2, MGS3 and MGS: Peace Walker, and the Subsistence version of MGS3 will be included in the collection, meaning, again, we will also get Metal Gear 1 and 2 (which are exactly in their original form, not remastered. Even the menus aren’t changed- the devs wanted to keep it retro). MGS1, apparently, will not be included.

So, we aren’t exactly sure yet just what the hell is going on. But stay tuned, and we will keep you updated and keep hitting you with more info on this as it comes our way.
