If you’re a proud Vita owner and have been eagerly anticipating the chance to play the Metal Gear Solid HD Collection on that gorgeous OLED screen, you’ll soon be getting that chance.

Konami has announced that the collection—which remasters Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty and Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater with “stunning, upgraded graphics”—will be hitting store shelves in North America on June 12th.

It won’t just be the visuals that get an upgrade, as both games will offer up some new Vita-specific features. For example, Konami boasts that “using just their fingers, gamers can zoom in on captivating cut-scenes, peek around corners, interrogate enemies, cycle through weapons, and perform rapid attacks with their knife.”

Interrogating enemies via a touch screen—for when you absolutely, positively need to get information from your captive by punching him in an exact spot over and over at the touch of a finger!
