Konami: Expect Metal Gear Announcements This Week
Last week, Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots turned one year old, and not coincidentally, Konami has revealed that some related announcements are coming our way.
According to Kotaku, Konami plans to reveal multiple announcements this week, and all of them pertain to Hideo Kojima's legendary franchise. Of course, Konami already unveiled their trio of big games during the week of E3: Metal Gear Solid: Rising for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker for the PSP, and Castlevania: Lords of Shadow for the PS3 and 360. Hence, you can probably expect game updates of some sort for MGS4, or perhaps the announcement of a special anniversary edition of some kind. The problem with such news is that we could theorize all day and all night, and in the end, we might never stumble upon the correct answer. We have to assume that the fireworks concluded after E3, but Konami has a history of saying, "yes, expect big announcements soon!" thereby causing a series of discussions and arguments. So before y'all get worked up, let's just adopt the "wait and see" stance; there's no knowing what Konami has up its sleeve in regards to MGS. We have a few ideas - and we're certain you do, too - but we'll keep them to ourselves for now...
Guess we'll be scoping out the Internet for these announcements this week. Just about anything related to Metal Gear Solid ranks high on our priority list, as it should.
