Konami announces HD remakes of Metal Gear Solid, Zone of the Enders, and Silent Hill

Yes... you’re reading that headline correctly.

To much surprise, tucked in the middle of Konami’s Pre-E3 Conference video was the reveal of the “Metal Gear Solid HD Collection.” The package will feature MGS 2, MGS 3: Snake Eater and MGS: Peace Walker. Oddly enough, Metal Gear Solid wasn’t included, so Twin Snakes might be the most “HD” experience for players. Leaving that fact aside, the collection will not only be available for the PS3, but the 360 as well and will support 1080p graphics. Don’t worry though MGS purists; PS3 looks to be the system to own it on. The PS3 will get an exclusive feature, labeled “Transfarring,” which allows players to stop a game in progress, transfer their Peace Walker game file to a PSP, and continue where they left off.

“Zone of the Enders HD collection” was also announced featuring both Zone of the Enders and Zone of the Enders 2. Not much else was said except that it’ll also be available for both PS3 and 360, with the PS3 version supporting the new Transfarring feature as well. Whether or not there would be a ZOE game for the PSP/NGP wasn’t exactly mentioned but it’s safe to assume something related is coming out for it.

The Silent Hill Collection also received little clarification, but will include HD "touch-ups" of both Silent Hill 2 and 3, without a mention of a potential release date or consoles it would be appearing on.

The Metal Gear Solid HD Collection will be available this November, while the Zone of the Enders HD Collection will be released sometime in 2012.

This is a crazy bit of news. Zone of the Enders HD remake is total hotness. Peace Walker now actually playable? Unpossible! Maybe they'll make MGS 2 less sucky in the process. Hey, I can dream.
