Metal Gear Solid HD Collection for PS Vita release date set for summer

Shares

Konami announced it will be porting its 2011 Metal Gear Solid HD Collection to the PlayStation Vita sometime this summer. The studio said the collection will include PS Vita-fied versions of Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty and Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater. As to the absence of Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker – which was included in the North American version of the collection – Konami confirmed to GR that only the second and third titles in the series would make the PS Vita leap, and that more details would be announced shortly. Perhaps that means other downloads are in store?

Konami's general manager Martin Shneider also pitched the collection's PS Vita features in today's announcement, saying, “We’re confident that users will be pleased with the new innovations Kojima Productions have implemented with the new PlayStation Vita iterations, offering a truly unique experience for this exciting new format.”

Snake made the trip to another “exciting new format” earlier this year with Metal Gear Solid: Snake Eater 3D on 3DS. Read our luke-warm review of that portable entry here.

    I would honestly rather they JUST port peace walker, i mean i want to play that game with a second analog stick on a portable device.

    Wait, is that a mistake or are you telling me the Psvita version will only contain Sons of liberty and Snake eater? It sounds, odd, and really MGS3 will just be MGS3 and not the 3DS one which has its features, but what the heck. Lets hope for new games in the series specifically one for PSvita and another for 3DS.

    well I wanted more portable MGS but since this doesnt have peace walker(I beat it already but wanted to replay on vita) I guess I will just get the 3ds version of 3 since that was remade with the unique 3ds features in mind.

    Sucks that Peace Walker isn't coming with it, but It's still a great buy.

    If it came with Peace Walker it would need an entire Memory Card for the game itself - and with the price of the Memory for the Vita, they would sell less with it. The 360 version needed a separate disc for Peace Walker, but the 360 isn't really a tech beast.
