As a launch title for Playstation 2, Zone of the Enders impressed gamers with its mind-blowing gameplay and giant mechanized robots. Only one sequel, Zone of the Enders: The 2nd Runner, was released years later and was received with much fanfare. Both Silent Hill and Metal Gear have received the HD treatment, so it seemed like a natural progression for Konami to re-release Zone of the Enders in a similar collection.
Zone of The Enders places you in the role of a young Leo Stenbuck, a colonist from the planet Jupiter. As Leo’s colony is attacked by the forces of BAHRAM, he stumbles across the Orbital Frame Jehuty. Against his better judgment, Leo quickly learns how to pilot Jehuty and engages the enemy.
