Metal Gear and Zone of the Enders HD Collections Hitting PS3
Today Kotaku (linked above) and [Register or Login to view links] report that both Metal Gear and Zone of the Enders HD Collections are now slated to hit Sony's PS3 entertainment system.
To quote: Metal Gear, Zone of the Enders Return With HD Collections Konami announced today that two of its most popular franchises, Metal Gear Solid and Zone of the Enders, will be getting HD compilation re-releases on the PlayStation 3 and, for the first time, will also see action on the Xbox 360.
The Metal Gear pack, due in November, will include Metal Gear Solid 2, Metal Gear Solid 3 and Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker. These games will now feature HD graphics, new art, remastered audio and achievements.
The Zone of the Enders collection, meanwhile, includes Zone of the Enders and Zone of the Enders 2 (and will boast the same improved/added features as the MGS pack). It'll be out in 2012.
Both packs will also boast a similar feature to the recently-unveiled PSP Remaster series, which Konami is calling "Transfarring". This will allow users to, when playing a game like Peace Walker that will be available on both handheld and console, transfer their saves between the two.
The company also unveiled plans for a Silent Hill HD collection.
Kojima noted that the two collections do not run under emulation. The games are optimized and rebuilt specifically for the PS3 and 360 and feature new interfaces specifically for HD resolutions, redrawn high res 2D art, effects and fonts, improved audio quality, right analogue stick and force feedback, and trophies and achievements. And, of course, on the PS3, Transfarring.
So does this mean there MIGHT be chance for a Final Fantasy X remake? I think RPG games have a lot to offer when it comes to earning trophies and possibly adding new content. On topic though, I'll definitely be getting the MTGS collection.
It's one of my favorite series. I've played Zone of the Enders once back when it first came out and love it so I think I'l' end up with that collection as well.
