Metal Gear Solid HD sneaks onto Vita on June 12

Hiding inside a box isn't nearly as glamorous or exciting as video games might pretend, so if you need a spot of escapism in your cardboard cradle, you'll be able to play Metal Gear Solid HD Collection on PlayStation Vita in a few weeks. Having hit consoles back in November, it'll sneak onto the handheld on June 12, publisher Konami has announced.

The Collection packs Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty and Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater, jazzed up in the Vita screen's higher resolution. It also taps the touch-screen and touchpad, with gestures to let you, in Konami's words, "zoom in on captivating cut-scenes, peek around corners, interrogate enemies, cycle through weapons, and perform rapid attacks with their knife."

Plus, of course, there's that awkward buzzword 'Transfarring.' You'll be able to swap your save data from the PS3 edition to the Vita and vice versa, for truly dedicated agents.
