There’s no word on a PAL territory release yet, but Konami will bring Metal Gear Solid: The Legacy Collection to North and South America in a few months.

The Legacy Collection includes Metal Gear Solid, Metal Gear Solid 2: HD Edition, Metal Gear Solid 3: HD Edition, Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker HD Edition, Metal Gear Solid: VR Missions and Metal Gear Solid 4: Trophy Edition.

It also bundles in two graphic novels by Ashley Wood and, as a bonus for MGS 3, the MSX originals Metal Gear and Metal Gear 2. The collection does not include Portable Ops, the only console game released under the Solid title which did not make the cut.

A PlayStation 3 exclusive, The Legacy Collection is apparently designed to give you “the opportunity to experience the series from beginning to end, all on one console”. It is due in June.

We can probably expect announcements for other territories soon; the collection was spotted on the Korean classification database last week.

The Metal Gear Solid series has sold 33 million units to date, Konami noted. The next instalment is Metal Gear Solid 5, which includes Ground Zeroes and The Phantom Pain.
