Kojima To Reveal Peace Walker For PSP Or Lords Of Shadow?
Okay, so after recovering from the shock wave that was Metal Gear Solid: Rising, there may be more news on the way...
First of all, we've been hearing rumors that Hideo Kojima has one more game to announce, and everyone assumes he's going to do so at Sony's press conference tomorrow. Now, it likely won't be a PlayStation 3 exclusive title, especially with Rising going multiplatform, but it might be a game called "Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker" for the PSP. As this exhibitor info chart shows, Peace Walker should be on display at some point. We do figure it'll get unveiled at Sony's conference today but there's the other possibility that it's Castlevania: Lords of Shadow, which may have been hinted at with the appearance of the "mask" on Kojima's teaser site. Basically, either/or should get announced tomorrow and we'll be all over it; you can count on that. However, it could be some other surprise that we're not expecting, and one that Konami purposely left off their exhibitor list, although this may be nothing more than some wishful thinking. Whatever it is, one can be assured of this fact: if it's related to Kojima, it'll be big news. That's just the way of the world.
PSP owners could certainly use a nice announcement like this, what with all the PS3-related rumors flooding across the Internet. Yeah, we've got the PSP Go!, even if it's isn't entirely official just yet, but the software is always the most important.
