Sony Europe has confirmed that the platform holder will reveal an all-new Heavy Rain character at the forthcoming GamesCom event in Cologne, Germany later this month.

The company was responding to an enquiry made by, who were digging dirt on a story posted by PS3Center, which claimed Sony was to unveil a new character from the Quantic Dream thriller at the European-based event, before lifting the lid on the final protagonist at the Tokyo Game Show.

Fortunately, the scoop turned out to be the real deal, with a SCEE representative telling VG247: “Yes, that is true.” GamesCom takes place from August 19 – 22, while the Tokyo Game Show kicks off on September 24.

PSU had the chance to go hands-on with the game at E3, so be sure to check out our impressions here if you have yet to do so. Heavy Rain is due out exclusively on PlayStation 3 in 2010.
