Konami Release New PS Vita Metal Gear Solid HD Collection TrailerKonami of Japan have released a new trailer that shows off some of the new features and statistics behind the high definition re-release of Metal Gear Solid two and three on PlayStation Vita. The Metal Gear Solid HD Collection may not feature Peace Walker or Metal Gear Solid 1, like other versions, but it still has some unique features of its own.

The trailer shows us that – like other versions – this collection will also include the original Metal Gear and Metal Gear 2 games from the 8-Bit era, but the main difference between this and other versions is the ability to save your progress on the PlayStation 3 and then save it to the Cloud – where you can use the PS Vita “Transfarring” method, and continue your gameplay into the PS Vita version of the MGS HD Collection, and play on the go.

The video also shows how the Vita touchscreen can be used to switch inventory items or lean out around corners, or to zoom your scope when sniping – a real first for the series. It might not offer much to those who already own the collection on another console, but the ability to play through the two classic games on the move is a hard one to resist. See the trailer for yourself below:

Metal Gear Solid HD Collection will be available on PlayStation Vita on June 28th in Japan. A worldwide release is expected sometime later in the Summer.
