Rear Touch For MGS HD Collection Vita

Shooter Sony PS Vita News Konami Action

In addition to a tweet made by Hideo Kojima yesterday, some new details have emerged for the Playstation Vita version of the Metal Gear Solid HD Collection. Today, Kojima continued to reveal the amount of additional voice acting that will be present in the game, with today’s recordings including Ginga Banjou (Liquid Snake) and David Oh (Zero). One of those additional lines is the following:

“If you flick the rear touch pad, you can slice the enemy’s throat.”

That line will be said by Major Zero of Metal Gear Solid 3. But the line itself is interesting. It has revealed that the rear touch pad of the Playstation Vita will be used during the games. It seems that knifing enemies will be used via the rear touch pad. Whether it will be the only method of input or if this is in addition of a physical input is unknown at this time. In addition that that detail, zooming in first person mode will be taken care of on the touch screen. Players will pinch the screen left and right, although Kojima describes it as a “stretch.”

A couple of screenshots with the game running on the Vita were also posted. You can check them out below.

Josh is the name, writing is my game... well my degree will say that. But, when uni gets me down (and it does), there is no better way that to grab a chair, sit back and slicing up some Darkspawn I started my gaming interest back in the good old 16 bit era with the Sega Mega Drive and Sonic The Hedgehog 2. I was roughly five years old. To this day I still try to fire up the dusty companion and speed through the wacky and bright levels, jumping on some Badniks, collecting those damn Chaos Emeralds. Then I moved onto Sony's disk based console the Playstation (thanks to my uncle). Since then I have picked up each of Sony's consoles from the 5th to current generation that has been released in Australia (with more to come). In terms of writing about games, I am quite new to the field. I started out late last year with my own blog before deciding to move to greener pastures. I have written a few reviews for the Playstation 3 and Playstation Portable. Features as well. I hope I can flex my muscles while writing with Capsule Computers. If I'm not gaming, however, I'm writing narratives. I am currently trying to kickstart a high fantasy novel (which, hopefully, turns into a complex RPG) that I want done in five years or so. My passion of writing has been there for a long time and has flourished as I grew. I'm into the fantasy genre, both games and novels, and thoroughly enjoy a deep and complex RPG, whether it comes from the East or West. Oh and anime is awesome!
