During the Konami Pre-E3 showcase, Hideo Kojima spoke briefly about the development process required to complete the Zone of the Enders HD Collection. Along with the production footage, Konami also debuted an all-new animated opening for the released, produced by famed anime studio Sunrise.
In particular, it interesting to note that Zone of the Enders‘ move to a high-resolution format outright requires a lot of elements, such as the animation clips in Zone of the Enders: 2nd Runner, to be subtly redrawn and touched-up. Even the decals on the robots had to be completely redrawn, as the higher resolution allowed their models to show a lot more detail.
Check out both videos below, straight from Konami’s YouTube page. Be a little wary of the animated intro, though—it gets a little risqué at the 2:59 mark.
