Metal Gear Solid HD on PS VITA has new touch controls
Apparently you can slash people’s throats with the back pad and zoom the camera using the front one. The info came out in a couple of recent tweets, along with two screens (titles screens admittedly but hey, it’s definitely on the Vita)
Pinching in and out on the front touchscreen will zoom the camera accordingly in first person mode while flicking across the rear touchpad will slice enemies – I am so doing that with my thumb. Kojima has described the conversion process as “difficult” due to the number of new control options.
He’s also been re-recording new audio. That’s Ginga Banjou, voice of Liquid Snake and Zero in the booth in one of the pictures.
Here’s some Metal Gear Solid HD gameplay in action.
