E3 2011 – Konami Press Conference: Zone of the Enders HD Collection Announced

leave a comment »

Alongside the undeniable awesomeness and nerdgasm triggering news of the Metal Gear Solid HD collection, comes further news from Konami that their cult favourite PS2 sci-fi mecha series Zone of the Enders is heading down the same route.

The Zone of the Enders HD Collection is due out on 360 and PS3 platforms in 2012 and like the MGS3/Peace Walker precedent that was set before it, marks the first time that either title will be playable on a Microsoft console.

Just like the aforementioned MGS HD collection, the Zone of the Enders HD collection will boast all the trimmings too including higher resolution visuals, new user interface, remastered audio and trophy/achievement support among other things.

Indeed, one of those ‘other’ things that the ZOE collection has is the save transference feature that the MGS: Peace Walker in the MGS collection supports. Strangely though, there are no plans for any of the ZOE games in the collection to be released on the PSP; perhaps hinting toward a ZOE title for the NGP?

The mind boggles.

It’s also quite likely one would imagine, that any chance of Zone of the Enders 3 turning into a reality would be based heavily upon the performance of the ZOE collection at retail.

So if all you folks want Zone of the Enders 3 to happen, vote with your wallets.

It’s a good day to be Konami fan it seems.
