Konami announces Metal Gear Solid: The Legacy Collection
To celebrate the 25th anniversary of the Metal Gear Solid franchise, Konami has announced, Metal Gear Solid: The Legacy Edition. This PlayStation 3 only game will be released in June 2013.
The Legacy Collection will include: Metal Gear Solid, Metal Gear Solid 2: HD Edition, Metal Gear Solid 3: HD Edition (which includes the original MSX versions of metal gear and metal gear 2), Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker HD edition, Metal Gear Solid: VR missions and Metal Gear Solid 4: Trophy Edition. The collection will also include two Ashley Wood digital graphic novels.
Tomoyuki Tsuboi, President of Konami Digital Entertainment, Inc. had the following to say about the Legacy Collection.
“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 Metal Gear Solid series was created by Hideo Kojima, and the first game in the series was released in 1998. In this stealth focused series player controls a secret agent from an elite Special Forces unit who is sent on solo stealth missions through enemy installations, vast jungles, and sometimes even the thick of battle. Alone and surrounded by the enemy, even a Special Forces agent will find it tough to come out alive. But that is the secret behind the series’ popularity—the cerebral challenge of figuring out how to avoid combat, and the thrill of sneaking through enemy territory undetected.
