based in humanity's expansion into space and the conflicts that result. Features include: the full classic games,
dramatic and action-oriented flying/floating mecha (robot anime) combat, new opening animations, Playstation trophy
support, and a demo for the upcoming 2013 Konami release, Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance.

Zone of Enders
The population has exploded, pollution has grown steadily worse, and natural resources are drying up. Unable to
continue life on such a small planet as Earth, mankind pushes out into space. The Moon and Mars are incapable of
supporting the entire population, so man eventually extends its reach to Jupiter. A torus space colony called Antilia is
built at the L5 Lagrangian point of Jupiter and Europa to support mining operations. Man's farthest outpost in its
sphere of existence, Antilia houses approximately 100,000 residents involved in mining and transport. It also serves as
a development outpost for BAHRAM, the military organization of the Martian anti-Earth state, Vascilia County.

franchise come to the PS3 in a single collection.

never-before-seen aerial gameplay.
View larger Antilia is mankind's farthest outpost, and allies itself neither with nor against Earth. Since Nereidum
Universal Technology (NUT) and BAHRAM lost their development outpost during the Deimos Incident, they see Antilia as a
perfect opportunity to establish an R&D facility for Orbital Frames, humanoid weapons surpassing LEV mecha. Their two
most advanced Orbital Frames, Jehuty and Anubis, conceal incredible offensive capabilities plus a certain something of
even greater importance.
What if there were an action game that let you dart through the air in any direction? This was the inspiration behind
mecha anime simulator Zone of the Enders. The "Orbital Frame," as the game's primary mecha is known, does everything
that might be expected of a humanoid machine - grabbing enemies, unleashing a whirlwind of blade strikes up close, and
firing off guns from a distance, all while spiraling freely in the open air. With its seamless transitions between
omnidirectional battles and story sequences, the game is like diving into a mecha anime where the fate of outer space
lies in the player's hands.
Zone of the Enders: The 2nd Runner
Mankind expands into the depths of space in a search for new land. The terraformed Mars is home to colonies from
various Earth countries, and mankind's push continues on to Jupiter. However, with new resources and new territory come
new problems. Mars consists of 16 counties, which are equivalent to the "states" comprising many Earth nations. Martians
and the colonists of the Jovian system are ruled by Earth with an iron fist. Such people living on the frontier of
civilization are called "Enders". An irreparable rift forms between those bound by the chains of Earth's gravity and
those floating free in space, and over time the hostility between the governors and the governed grows.
In the course of exploring space, man discovers a new ore called Metatron. It gains attention not only for its use as
an energy source but also for a multitude of other purposes. However, the incredible energy it provides also comes to be
used for military designs, as anti-Earth forces on Mars employ it to secretly develop the giant humanoid weapons known
as Orbital Frames. The Orbital Frames possess overwhelming mobility compared to Earth's LEVs, similar humanoid weapons.
Once unable to compete against Earth's sheer numbers, Martian anti-Earth forces finally have a weapon with which they
can fight back.
Released two years after the first Zone of the Enders, The 2nd Runner upgrades the mechanics of
the original in every way. Its intuitive controls make each action even more exhilarating than
before. Anime and CG come together to create a visual style like no other, and the stage layouts and story
offer a nonstop entertainment experience. The game also boasts incredible sound effects, a pumping
soundtrack, memorable voice performances, and topnotch production values in every detail. This is the next
level of high speed robot action.
