MGS launch date set for PS Vita

The PSV version of Metal Gear Solid HD Collection is set to slither out this Summer.

Both Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty and Metal Gear Solid: Snake Eater will be released in a combo pack for Sony's new portable this June the 12th.

Though the collection will only pack together the two games (and leave out the console edition's third game Peace Walker) it will host a bevy of new features the fans might want to take for a spin. The PS Vita's touchscreen will be heavily factored into the control schemes and should, at the very least, be neat to play around with.
METAL GEAR SOLID HD Collection for the PlayStation®Vita allows fans to experience the series like never before with optimized controls that take full advantage of the Vita's unique touch-screen and rear touchpad. Using just their fingers, gamers can zoom in on captivating cut-scenes, peek around corners, interrogate enemies, cycle through weapons, and perform rapid attacks with their knife.

There's a lot of cool stuff wrapped up in that little paragraph. If you're new to the series, Metal Gear Solid HD Collection seems like it'll be a solid deal. Will it be enough for long time fans who've already played these games on other systems though? I don't know- how much do you like tactical espionage action?
