Back in April it was announced that Konami would be bringing the Metal Gear Solid franchise together in one simple bundle for fans of the series or newcomers to purchase. However at the time only a vague release window was given and it seems that Konami won’t be able to make it within that window. However they did announce today that Metal Gear Solid: The Legacy Collection will be released in North America and South America on July 9th.
For those who don’t know, The Legacy Collection is celebrating the 25th anniversary of the Metal Gear Solid franchise and it contains the original Metal Gear Solid, the HD versions of Metal Gear Solid 2, 3 and Peace Walker, the Metal Gear Solid: VR Missions and last but not least, the Metal Gear Solid 4: Trophy Edition. To top all that off, it also will come with two Ashley Wood digital graphic novels and a brand new 100 page art book which highlights the various art that has been used to market the franchise throughout its 25 year history.
