Hitman: HD Trilogy Confirmed for Release in 2013
Square Enix took this morning to announce Hitman: HD Trilogy. The publisher has confirmed the trilogy is headed to North America for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 on January 29th, 2013, while Europe and PAL territories will see it on February 1st.
This HD trifecta of goodness will contain Hitman 2: Silent Assassin, Hitman: Contracts, and Hitman: Blood Money. Square Enix also announced it will cost $39.99, though Amazon has quite the deal. For the same price, you can get the Premium Edition, which will include a 22-page art book that contains never-before-seen reinterpretations of the three Hitman games included in the trilogy. I can’t wait to see Agent 47’s bald head all HD-ified in Blood Money. Can’t wait.
