Hideo Kojima appearing at Gamescom

Metal Gear Solid mastermind Hideo Kojima will be making an appearance at the Gamescom event in Cologne, Germany next month, Konami has announced.

Kojima-san will be on hand to showcase the forthcoming stealth outing Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker for PSP, in addition to the excellent looking Castlevania: Lords of Shadow for PS3/Xbox 360.

Joining the Kojima Productions head will be Shingo Takatsuka (aka Seabass) of Team Pro Evolution Soccer fame, who will, as you may have guessed, be showing off PES 2010 to the masses.

Konami’s European marketing and PR boss, Martin Schneider, commented: “Visitors of this year’s gamescom will get the unique chance to meet Konami´s greatest talents from Overseas and Europe.”

“Likewise, for Konami´s developers this event marks a fascinating opportunity to discuss their games with their European fans and get firsthand feedback. Konami will be showing a line up of diversity and innovation at Europe´s premier gaming event.”

Gamescom runs through August 19 – 23.
