The Metal Gear Solid HD Collection might have arrived in both the US and Japan this week, but the rest of the world has to wait (im)patiently until February. Still, Konami has offered us a little something to help soothe the pain.
Here is a nine-minute long trailer from Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker HD, just one of the games included in the compilation. And in case you think you’ve seen it before, this one’s been translated into English, just for you.
Peace Walker stars Big Boss, and was originally released on PSP. Compared to the other games in the compilation, Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty and Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater, it’s somewhat lacking in cult popularity. It does fill an important role in the storyline though, fleshing out a few details that affect the rest of the series, so we’re not complaining about its inclusion.
Oh! And we’re not the only ones who have to wait, completely. Downloadable versions of the Metal Gear Solid HD Collection won’t be arriving on Xbox LIVE Arcade until “mid 2012” – so if you’d planned on doing away with discs, you may wish to reconsider.
