Konami have this morning announced the release date for the upcoming Metal Gear Solid HD Collection, which bundles together a heap of classic Metal Gear content. The package is headed to retail on February 2nd, for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
Interested in the contents? We certainly were, which is why we recently previewed it. There's even more stuff in the final version than we thought, though - check out the list of stuff remastered in "full HD":
• Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty
• Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater
• Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker
And there's also a couple of bonus games included:
• Metal Gear
• Metal Gear 2: Solid Snake
The compilation represents a rare opportunity to fill in some of the back story that many of today's gamers may well have missed out on first time around (Metal Gear and Metal Gear 2 were both released more than 20 years ago, and on a system - the MSX - that most people have never heard of).
