You can see below for the official statement but if this HD compilation disc is anything like the Metal Gear Solid HD Collection, I think this is something to be excited about. Granted, I played and still own both of these games already on PS2 but I do not think I would mind playing them again in HD.
In all honesty, I originally bought the first ZOE for the MGS2 demo (like everyone else). Having a decent game get bundled with it was just the icing on the cake. As for ZOE2, I remember it has the really crazy space war battles, especially towards the end of the game – something that should be special when seen in HD. Anyway, when Kojima releases something, the world should listen.
Konami announced the upcoming Zone of the Enders HD Collection, coming this Fall. Zone of the Enders HD Collection will feature the two main Zone of the Enders games in a special, fully remastered series. The collection will be playable for the PlayStation 3 and the Xbox 360.
Developed by Kojima Productions, Zone of the Enders HD Collection will include fan favorites Zone of the Enders and its sequel Zone of the Enders: The 2nd Runner. This will be the first time the games are featured on platforms other than the PlayStation2 system.
“We are looking forward to bringing the legendary Zone of the Enders series to fans old and new in a high definition format with the Zone of Enders HD Collection,” said Tomoyuki Tsuboi, President of Konami Digital Entertainment, Inc.
The essential Zone of the Enders series features the engrossing storytelling of Hideo Kojima, paired with thrilling robot fights in a futuristic interplanetary setting. Players control fast and powerful mechs (robots) known as Orbital Frames to blast their enemies into oblivion.
Konami also recently released the Metal Gear Solid HD Collection.
