Upcoming Issue of Famitsu Confirms New MGS?
Konami has always gained a lot of attention at nearly every E3 they've been at for the past 10 years. And it's thanks to one game franchise: Metal Gear Solid. There's a new storm brewing for E3 2009, and with a countdown said to reveal an all new Metal Gear game, people are hard at work trying to uncover anything before the actual announcement. One such tidbit comes from Japan, a 7-11 store of all places.
Found on 7Andy's website, 7-11's Japanese name, is an entry for the May 30th issue of Famitsu. Spotted by a NeoGAF poster, the issue's contents are also listed on the Japanese website, with one entry translated literally to "New Metal Gear." Now, this wasn't printed on the multiplatform Famitsu magazine, but rather the PlayStation-centric one. The May 30th issue will arrive just two days short of E3 and all of its announcements and conferences. So we urge you to mark May 30th on your calendars, as well.
Whether or not this project is, indeed, a new Metal Gear game, remains to be seen. Because for all we know, it could just be a downloadable episode for MGS4, which would still be extremely awesome, albeit not quite the hardware seller a full game would be.
