Vita Version of MGS HD Collection Gets Summer Release in Europe, No Peace Walker, Screenshots Inside

Konami has announced the official release date of Metal Gear Solid HD Collection for the PlayStation Vita in Japan and gave a general release window for European gamers.

Japanese consumers will be able to get their hands on this portable version starting June 28th, while those in Europe must settle with a more ambiguous summer release window. Strangely enough, there was no mention of when the game would arrive in North America, though we can hope that the game will likely be arriving stateside this summer as well.

Konami also released a bit of unfortunate news, confirming that the collection, unlike its console counterparts, will not include Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker. Despite this notable absence, Martin Schneider of Konami Europe shared his high hopes for the title’s launch.

The PlayStation Vita system will provide fans with an exciting new way to enjoy the Metal Gear Solid HD Collection.

We’re confident that users will be pleased with the new innovations Kojima Productions have implemented with the new PlayStation Vita iterations, offering a truly unique experience for this exciting new format.

The first batch of screenshots has also been released, which you can check out in the gallery below.
