We already knew that the Metal Gear Solid Collection would be making the jump to Vita next month but now we have a more specific window. Solid Snake will make his debut on Sony’s next generation portable on June 15th according to Konami.
The Vita version of Metal Gear Solid Collection will differ slightly from its console counterparts. For one it only includes Metal Gear Solid 2 and Metal Gear Solid 3 since Peace Walker can be purchased digital through the PSN already. Konami has also implemented some touch based controls in both games, giving you the ability to zoom with a sniper rifle or peak around corners, for example.
Check out the full press release after the jump.
Konami Digital Entertainment, Inc. today unveiled the launch date for METAL GEAR SOLID HD Collection, coming to the Playstation®Vita system on June 12. From the critically acclaimed director, Hideo Kojima, METAL GEAR SOLID HD Collection includes two beloved classics, METAL GEAR SOLID 2: Sons of Liberty and METAL GEAR SOLID 3: Snake Eater. Featuring stunning, upgraded graphics from the original releases on the PlayStation®2, both titles include Transfarring, where players can transfer save data from their PlayStation®3 METAL GEAR SOLID HD Collection to their PlayStation®Vita system and start the action from where they left off.
Metal Gear Solid HD Collection for the PlayStation®Vita allows fans to experience the series like never before with optimized controls that take full advantage of the Vita’s unique touch-screen and rear touchpad.
