Metal Gear Solid: The Legacy Collection has been announced a few days ago: this new collection will allow Ps3 owners to experience the whole series on their Sony consoles. The Legacy Collection includes Metal Gear Solid Vr Missions, Metal Gear Solid 2 HD, Metal Gear Solid 3 HD, Metal Gear Solid 4: Gun Of The Patriots and Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker. Metal Gear and Metal Gear 2, the first entries of the series, will also be available for play since they’re included as bonuses in Metal Gear Solid 3. Together with the games more goodies will be included, making it the definitive Metal Gear Solid collection.
Aside from the contents, not much else has been revealed about the Legacy Collection: pricing and release date are still unknown for the North American and European versions. This morning Konami has announced that the Legacy Collection will be available in Japan on July 11 and it will cost 7980 yen, around 80 dollars. While the price may look high, we have to consider that most new releases in Japan cost around 7000/7500 yen: this probably means that the Legacy Collection will not cost more than a regular new release in North America and Europe. Not bad at all, considering everything that’s included in the package.
Metal Gear Solid: The Legacy will launch later this year as a Ps3 exclusive.
