Konami Announces Metal Gear Solid HD Collection, More

Zone of the Enders and Silent Hill games also getting upgrade

Konami went ahead and blew the doors off some announcements in advance of E3. Headlining their reveals is the Metal Gear Solid HD Collection, but don't let that overshadow upcoming revamps from both the Zone of the Enders and Silent Hill series. 

 

The Metal Gear Solid HD Collection will bring Metal Gear Solid 2, 3, and Peace Walker to both Playstation 3 and Xbox 360. All three will be playable in 1080p, with many of the series' 2D assets reworked to match the higher resolution.

 

One of the most interesting features comes with Peace Walker, which was previously a PSP-only title. It allows for PS3/PSP save game interoperability with a feature series mastermind Hideo Kojima has dubbed "transfarring." This essentially means you'll be able to hook your PSP to your PS3 and transfer saves between the two platforms. MGS HD Collection is scheduled for release in November.

Not to be outdone by the big daddy of Konami franchises, one of Kojima's other fan-favorite series is also getting an upgrade with the Zone of the Enders HD Collection for Xbox 360 and Playstation 3. This one bundles Zone of the Enders 1 and 2 together with visual upgrades similar to MGS's, including a "transfarring" feature that has yet to be thoroughly detailed. 

 

Finally, we come to the Silent Hill HD collection, which features Silent Hill 2 and 3 in HD. Platforms and release date for the collection haven't been specified, but PS3 and 360 are a safe bet for now.
