Konami has finally confirmed a release date for the PS Vita’s own version of the Metal Gear Solid HD Collection with the title slated for a late June release.
The collection, already available on PS3 and Xbox 360, updates two of Hideo Kojima’s legendary sneak-em-ups in the shape of MGS2: Sons of Liberty and MGS3: Snake Eater, though disappointingly Vita users won’t get the additional MGS: Peace Walker as part of the bundle – most likely because it’s already available via PSN and Konami wouldn’t want to be gifting away additional sales now would they?
As with previous iterations the games feature all-new graphical make-overs, trophies and bespoke controls systems designed to make the most of the PS Vita’s touch-screen capabilities.
The Vita version will also introduce a rebalanced user interface and Kojima Productions’ unique “Transfarring” system for data sharing with PS3 units.
