You know that I have this on pre-order. My complete Metal Gear Collection wouldn’t be complete without it. The full press release is below:
Konami announced that METAL GEAR SOLID HD COLLECTION for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 will be available in stores on November 8th, 2011.
From the critically acclaimed director, Hideo Kojima, METAL GEAR SOLID HD COLLECTION offers a handful of the most popular Metal Gear Solid titles from the past in true HD for the first time ever. Featuring a total of 5 complete games including METAL GEAR SOLID 2: SONS OF LIBERTY, METAL GEAR SOLID 3: SNAKE EATER, METAL GEAR SOLID: PEACE WALKER in HD, and the original MSX2 classics, METAL GEAR and METAL GEAR 2: SOLID SNAKE. The HD Collection offers old and new fans a chance to experience the epic game play, design and storytelling of the MGS franchise.
The ” METAL GEAR SOLID (MGS)” series is the seminal work of Hideo Kojima, Japan’s master game creator, and the progenitor of the stealth action game genre. The player controls numerous legendary characters from the METAL GEAR SOLID universe from elite special forces units who are sent on solo sneaking missions through enemy installations, vast jungles, and sometimes even the thick of battle. Alone and surrounded by the enemy, even a special forces agent will find it tough to come out alive. But that is the secret behind the series’ popularity-the cerebral challenge of figuring out how to avoid combat, and the thrill of sneaking through enemy territory undetected.
The MGS series is also known for its storyline, which blends seamlessly with the gameplay. The scenarios are based on extensive research and incorporate the drama of actual developments in society.
