When I woke up today, I had no idea I would not only see one, but two Zone of the Enders-related news today. Of course, the hottest news was that Kojima Productions has officially started working on the third entry in the series. Also making the rounds today is a handful of Zone of the Enders HD Collection screenshots.
As it stands, I think both Zone of the Enders titles still look fantastic, but that visual boost to 720p with replaced visual effects makes them just that much better. ZoE HD Collection will also boast 60 frames per second and come with much higher quality sound effects and music. Sunrise has put together a brand-new opening animation for the collection as well. A premium version of the collection will come in a special case with a remix CD and two booklets (one that encompasses the booklets from the original releases, and the other which covers the development of the HD release).
It was a good day to be a Zone of the Enders fan. Anyone else have their fingers crossed for a worldwide release of October 25th? To celebrate, I think I might dust off my copy of the original Zone of the Enders and pop it in tonight. It's been far too long.
