Konami got E3 off to a rollicking start last week during their first ever Pre-E3 Show. During the event, famed director Hideo Kojima announced his next two projects: Metal Gear Solid HD Collection and Zone of the Enders HD Collection. Both games will be coming to the PS3 and Xbox 360, but as the E3 Expo opens, Kojima Productions has another surprise in store for gamers on their E3 Special Site.
In addition to the retail releases, each remake package will be available to download from the PlayStation Network and Xbox Live Arcade as well. It’s unknown if the download versions will appear at the same time as the retail versions, but I’m sure Konami will announce more details about the compilations soon.
The Metal Gear Solid HD Collection, which contains Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Libery, Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater and Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker, will be released in November. Bluepoint Games, the same team responsible for the God of War Collection and the Team Ico Collection, will be handling the development.
Zone of the Enders HD Collection, which contains Zone of the Enders and Zone of the Enders: The 2nd Runner, will be released sometime in 2012.
