Hideo Kojima, designer of the very popular Metal Gear Solid series, posted on his English Twitter account the regional differences between the two versions of the upcoming Metal Gear Solid HD Collection. The collection is an updated compilation of the Metal Gear Solid series and will be available for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.

The Metal Gear Solid HD Collection will include Metal Gear Solid 2 and 3, which will have graphical upgrades and will run at 60 frames per second and will have a 1080p resolution.

On @HIDEO_KOJIMA_EN, Kojima first announced what Japan will get. The Japanese version of the collection will include the Metal Gear Solid 2 and 3, as it was first announced at E3 2011. It will also include a download code for the original game of the series, Metal Gear Solid.

Kojima also tweeted that MGS 2 and 3 are the Substance and Subsistence versions, which are the director’s cut versions of the series. Since MGS 3: Subsistence is shipped with the 8-bit versions of Metal Gear 1 and 2, the collection will be including both games as well.

The North American version of the game, which Kojima described as the “overseas” version, has both the MGS 2 and 3 games. The only difference is, instead of having a download code for the original Metal Gear Solid game, it will be including an upgraded version of Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker.

The Metal Gear Solid HD Collection is scheduled to be released in November.
