The upcoming Zone of the Enders HD Collection for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 will also be available in a Limited Edition release, publisher Konami announced this week. In addition to the two classic PlayStation 2 games, the Limited Edition will include a 100-page art book and soundtrack CD, along with special packaging.
Both Zone of the Enders (above) and Zone of the Enders: The 2nd Runner (below) have been upgraded into high definition for the release, which will be sold in a standard version for $39.99, with the limited release priced higher at $59.99. Both games were fan favorites during the last console generation for their speedy giant robot battles and anime-influenced aesthetics, though the original is still best known for coming with a playable demo of Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty several months before the full game was released.
In an amusing twist of fate, both versions of Zone of the Enders HD Collection ship with a playable demo of next February's Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance, a hack-and-slash spinoff from the popular stealth-action franchise.
