Konami's mech action title Zone of the Enders is delayed.
We have some bad news for those awaiting Konami's upcoming mech-action title Zone of the Enders (Z.O.E.) for the PlayStation 2, as the title is being delayed. Before the announcement, Z.O.E. was planned for a February 1, 2001 release, but now has been pushed back to appear on the shelves in Japan on February 22.
Konami's Zone of the Enders will also be packaged with a demo of the company's much anticipated Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty; the sequel to the insanely popular adventure title on the PlayStation. Metal Gear Solid 2 is scheduled to drop in Japan in Fall of 2001. Konami's first wave of games on the PlayStation 2 are shaping up quite nicely, and Konami is in a great position to be a real factor in the console's growth over time. Many gamers are no doubt disappointed as to the title's delay, but Konami hopes that Z.O.E. will be worth the wait to game players.
