During their E3 press conference Konami showcased a small segments sorrounding the upcoming Zone of the Enders HD Collection. Combining ports of the first two Zone of the Enders games, originally realsed on the PlayStation 2, Z.O.E HD hopes to introduce a new set of Mech Fans to Kojima’s action packed mech universe.
The segment was rather short but did touch up on a few key points sorrounding this HD upgrade. Similar to what Konami did with the Metal Gear Solid HD Collection textures have been remastered and updated for 1080P displays.
