While the latest trailer for Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker just being shown at the Konami Press Conference at GamesCom, we’ve caught wind that the game will see its first playable debut at Tokyo Game Show 2009. This isn’t all too surprising, however. Historically, a Metal Gear Solid game will see a short trailer debut at E3, then at Games Convention in Leipzig (now which is GamesCom in Cologne) see an expanded trailer, and then the following Tokyo Game Show that same game will be playable. History will most likely repeat itself again this year.
Walking through the business center today I ran into Mr. Kojima, and told him I heard that the game would be playable at Tokyo Game Show next month, and he laughed, and said, “Yes. If it’s ready.”
Will history repeat itself at Tokyo Game Show? I’ll put 1,000 yen that not only will the demo be on the show floor, but we’ll probably get to try out the new cooperative play. Personally, as a huge Metal Gear Solid fan, I cannot wait.
G4 will be in full force at this year’s Tokyo Game Show at the Makuhari Messe, in Chiba Japan from September 24-27, 2009.
