Metal Gear Solid HD Collection launch trailer commemorates US release

The news we have today may cause a mixed reaction amongst Metal Gear Solid fans, as the HD Collection was recently released to gamers in the US and to commemorate the launch Konami has also released a trailer teasing some of the improved graphics. This could be seen as rubbing it in the face of UK gamers, who might find themselves a little jealous as they will not get to experience the revamped collection until February next year.

The Metal Gear Solid HD Collection includes visually enhanced versions of Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater, Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty and Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker. The trailer which can be viewed below shows us clips from all three new versions. It introduces each game individually in a sort of PowerPoint presentation style before comparing the new graphics to the old and allowing us to revisit the first ever experiences of Metal Gear Solid.

Earlier in the week Siliconera brought us a clip that was released by Konami and is typically epic. It is over nine minutes long and shows us a sneak peek of the brand new HD visuals that feature in the HD Collection, specifically in this case the Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker remake. From what we have seen we are more than impressed with the graphics, especially when you consider the original game was released on the PSP over a year ago.

We previously brought you news of the limited edition bundles that were available at Zavvi, the electronics retailers. Only 4,000were obtainable and they featured all the content that comes with the console HD collection, except also included Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots as well as a PSN code that allow access to the download of the PSOne game Metal Gear Solid. Will you be getting the Metal Gear Solid HD Collection?
