The Metal Gear Solid HD Collection for PlayStation Vita will release on June 28 in Japan, with Konami confirming a European summer release.

The Japanese release date came from a video series from Sony announcing new titles for the system this morning.

The Vita version of the pack, which came to consoles in Europe last month, will feature Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty and Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater.

Peace Walker won’t be included in the handheld collection compared to its console counterparts.

“The PlayStation Vita system will provide fans with an exciting new way to enjoy the Metal Gear Solid HD Collection,” said Konami European GM Martin Schneider.

“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.”

MGS HD Vita will come with touch-screen and touchpad controls, Konami confirmed.

MGS creator Hideo Kojima has teased pictures of the Vita version running before, but never shown any footage of it until now. You can get that below, as well as an interview with the man himself on it, plus more on Transfarring.
