In addition, the collection will also include two Ashley Wood digital graphic novels.”

Konami president Tomoyuki Tsuboi, had the following statement, “We wanted to give Metal Gear Solid fans the opportunity to experience the series from beginning to end, all on one console, With the collection’s multiple titles, players can truly see how Metal Gear Solid evolved into the critically acclaimed and beloved franchise it is today.”

The collection will be hitting stores in June of this year. This will be a worthy addition to a collection with the amazing library of Metal Gear all in the one place.

Hideo Kojima Pipes Up About MGS5

Legendary game designer and creator, Hideo Kojima, responsible for Zone of the Enders and the Metal Gear Solid series has spoken up about the possibility of Metal Gear Solid 5 being worked on anytime soon.

Speaking about out about MGS5 which will be running the new Fox Engine developed by Kojima Productions had this to say.

About Metal Gear Solid 5, I can tell you two things. There will be much question of infiltration, espionage, and convincing people to give you ‘a favor’ like in the last Metal Gear Solid.

Something may be lost in translation as the above was translated from Japanese to French and then to English so with “earning favor”, he may be referring to the recruitment and loyalty aspect of Peace Walker, which was a key element of that title.

Snake “recruiting” new staff

With the future of MGS games and possible directions for influences affecting those games, Kojima had the following to say.

I liked the idea of social interactions in Deus Ex: Human Revolution, but we’ll see.

Another bit of great news is that he also mentioned that he was definitely not done with Solid Snake even though he did want him to die at the end of MGS4: Guns of the Patriots.

More Metal Gear and possible more Solid Snake? Japandaman says, “yes please!”

Metal Gear Solid 2 & 3 HD Edition For PS Vita Trailer

Some new information has just come to hand regarding the imminent release of Metal Gear Solid 2 & 3 HD Edition for the Sony PS Vita. Hitting Japan on June 28, this re-imaging sees new features exclusive to the Vita platform, features that utilise the touch screen in innovative ways.

Check out the video below which shows off some amazing footage from the game and also shows the unique ways that you can drag on the screen to interact with the game, pretty sweet. Dragging to select items and peer stealthily around corner, brilliant also now with integrated trophy support.

I can’t do this title enough as a MGS fanboy, roll the tape.

Play Arts Solid Snake Figure

One of the best figure makers has scored a major coup by developing a figure on the main protagonist from the Metal Gear Solid franchise, Solid Snake.

The figure comes with its own SOCOM pistol with suppressor plus a FAMAS rifle which he carries over his shoulder. Great detail in the figure, just check out the pics below…stunning. Looks like he’s fully posable with tons of photo ops available.
