Snake's rugged good looks aren't the thing getting an upgrade for the Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker HD remake. Andriasang today spotted tweets from director Hideo Kojima confirming the third game in the upcoming Metal Gear Solid HD collection will clock in at 60fps, outpacing the PSP original by double.
"60 frames per second in HD... it's the best! Say peace!" wrote Kojima, later adding, “Ooh, HD, 60 fps, and vibrancy! Moves smoothly! Recoil of the gun is fun! It seems she wants to have a word as well.”
The tweets came with two new character screenshots from the Japanese build:
Earlier this year year, Kojima announced Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater would also sport 60fps speeds, and in a tweet this month he noted it had also received some fresh voice work. Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty, the third and oldest game in the forthcoming value pack, was originally developed at 60fps, and will therefore be left as is.
Due November 2011, the Metal Gear Solid HD Collection is being developed by Bluepoint Games and Kojima Productions for the PS3 and Xbox 360. The added 'transfarring' feature will also allow PSP owners to swap their Metal Gear Solid Peace Walker games between the PS3 and the handheld.
