Hideo Kojima announced during Konami’s pre-E3 show that HD collections of Metal Gear Solid and Zone of the Enders will be coming to PS3 and Xbox 360. The MGS collection features Metal Gear Solid 2, 3, and Peace Walker, while the Zone of the Enders collection features Zone of the Enders 1 and 2. The PS3 version of both titles will support Transfarring, a new feature created by Kojima to allow quick transferring of saves from the PS3 to the PSP, so that you can continue playing your game when you’re away from home. Kojima hopes to include Transfarring in his future titles and eventually support NGP/PS3 transfers.
The HD collections feature many improvements over the originals, including:
- Optimized and rebuilt for the PS3/360
- New user interface for HD resolutions
- Redrawn hi-res 2D art, effects, and fonts
- Trophies and achievements
- Right analog stick and force feedback support
- Improved audio quality
The Metal Gear Solid HD Collection will be available in November 2011. Zone of the Enders HD Collection will follow in 2012.
Konami also announced an HD collection of Silent Hill featuring the second and third games in the series, as well as Silent Hill: Book of Memories for NGP. No other details were given.
