Konami has said Metal Gear Solid: The Essential Collection is yet to be confirmed for Europe.
The publisher told vigilant blog videogaming247 that until it officially outs the PS2 collection for our lands there's nothing to say.
Inside the collection is MGS, MGS2 (director's cut) and MGS3. It all comes wrapped up in fancy artwork, costs USD 29.99 or thereabouts, and should be out in the States before Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots.
That, if you remember, is pipped for a second quarter release this year. It's a date assistant producer Ryan Payton is committing to, claiming you can already play the game from start to finish.
And play it we did towards the end of January. We were left in "no doubt it will be a dream come true to MGS fans". Looks to be the best of the bunch from our perspective, too.
Pop over to our first impressions of Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots to find out why. Hint: flashback button.
