Konami has released a ton of information on Zone of the Enders HD Collection’s Japanese release – sharing the date, first screenshots and information of a ‘Premium Package’ release.

The HD collection will launch on October 25th and will be available for PS3 and 360 both either on a disc or as a download. The PS3 download will land day-and-date with the retail version, but the 360 download release date hasn’t yet been determined.

In addition to the standard retail edition Konami will release a special edition ‘Premium Package’ version of the game. That comes with a special box, a remix CD and two booklets commemorating the original releases and remake respectively. There’s a ‘Konami Style’ version of this special edition too which will only be sold at the Konami Style online store.

Zone of the Enders HD includes HD versions of the original title and its sequel updated with 720p HD visuals and running at a smooth 60 frames per second. Other aspects of the game including the visual effects, music, sound and UI elements have all been improved, too.

The announcement comes on the same day that Hideo Kojima teased a first look at artwork from a new “Enders Project.”
