Originally scheduled for June, Metal Gear Solid: The Legacy Collection will arrive via cardboard boxes to North and South America on July 9, publisher Konami announced this afternoon. The PlayStation 3 exclusive bundle includes Metal Gear Solids (or Metal Gears Solid?) 1-4, Peace Walker and VR Missions. The package is priced at $ 49.99.
The bundle also includes two Ashley Wood “digital graphic novels” and the 100-page art book featuring the series’ marketing art over the past 25 years. The Legacy Collection was previously dated July 11 for Japan, and it appears to include the same items now announced for the Americas.
Series creator Hideo Kojima announced Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance is coming to the PC. Speaking on his HideRadio podcast, Kojima revealed the upcoming port. The news was then confirmed by Platinum Games creative producer Jean Pierre Kellams.
We’ll have further details as we learn them.
The official Japanese site for the Metal Gear Solid Legacy Collection includes a few more details than was seen in the bundle’s initial announcement. For starters, the pack will include “a 100-page artbook filled with [series artist Yoji] Shinkawa’s work,” according to a translation by MetalGearSolid.nl. The official Japanese site also lists a July 11 release date for Japan.
The English site for the Metal Gear Solid Legacy Collection also notes that the inclusion of both Metal Gear Solid 1 and Metal Gear Solid: VR Missions are via PSN download vouchers packed in to the bundle. The 100-page artbook isn’t listed for the North American version of the collection.
The Japanese website for Metal Gear Solid The Legacy Collection, which gathers almost every Metal Gear game into one package on the PlayStation 3, has launched revealing a number of details. The collection was announced late last month.
The package will be available for 7,980 yen, roughly $ 80 U.S. dollars, and it will be available on July 11.
The collection gathers Metal Gear, Metal Gear 2, Metal Gear Solid and Metal Gear Solid: VR Missions (via download codes), Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty HD, Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater HD, Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker HD, Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots, two digital graphic novels, and a 100-page art book with work from series artist Yoji Shinkawa.
The collection is supposed to be coming to North America next month, but Konami has not revealed a specific release date or price yet.
The latest DLC for Painkiller Hell & Damnation is now available for purchase on Steam.

Painkiller Hell & Damnation is the HD remake of the original Painkiller, which launched for the PC in 2004. Console ports for Painkiller HD are currently in the works, while ports for Mac and Linux are expected to drop this spring.

Metal Gear Rising’s Blade Wolf character will take center stage on May 14 in North America, and will probably take a few nerve centers while he’s at it, given the usual flow of that game’s action. The Blade Wolf DLC will be released on PSN in North America and Xbox Live in North America and Europe that day, with a European PS3 release following the next day.
Don’t expect a buddy comedy between Blade Wolf (formal name: LQ-84i) and Raiden; the story takes place before the two cyborgs face off, with Blade Wolf still working under Mistral. You probably didn’t even think about what his life was like before he started yelling “COMBINATION ATTACK” at Raiden, but now you’ll know.
