Konami has brought Armature Studio onboard the Vita version of the Metal Gear Solid HD Collection.
The Vita port of the Metal Gear Solid Collection will be the developer's first major release, a collaboration with the Collection's original developers, BluePoint Games.
Armature Studio was founded in 2008 by Mark Pacini, Todd Keller and Jack Mathews. All three had held senior roles at Retro Studios, the western developer which has become a Nintendo favourite with the Metroid Prime trilogy, Donkey Kong Returns, and Mario Kart 7.
The Metal Gear Solid HD Collection is expected on Vita in northern summer.
