Earlier this week we spoke about the lack of games on the PS Vita, but the good news is that there are some great titles on the way for Sony’s new handheld that should breath a new lease of life back into the system.
One of these games is undoubtedly the highly anticipated Metal Gear Solid HD Collection which is set to release at the end of June. The game will include full versions of Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty and Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater and it is the latter which we have some gameplay to show you.
Konami has generously provided an preview walkthrough of what you can expect to see when the Metal Gear Collection lands and we have to say that it looks like Konami has done a good job of not only bringing a PS3 game to the Vita, but enhancing it as well.
They emphasise that the team isn’t cutting corners with the collection just because it’s on a portable machine. All the original cutscenes are included with the game, while we finally get to see some of the unique touchscreen features that Konami has implemented into the collection as well. One example is being able to zoom into cutscenes at free will – it’s not overly amazing, but a very nice touch nevertheless.
Enjoy almost 10 minutes of unedited gameplay courtesy of Konami’s Kevin Vlaming below. Are you still planning to pick this up, or are you confused that the original Metal Gear Solid game isn’t included in this? It should at least come with a PSN download voucher if they couldn’t include it on the PS Vita card.
