Hideo Kojima heading to London for MGS: Peace Walker tour

Konami has revealed that Metal Gear Solid creator Hideo Kojima and art director Yoji Shinkawa will be visiting London for two days next month in celebration of the launch of PSP exclusive stealth ‘em up, MGS: Peace Walker.

The duo’s first stop will be at the HMV store in Oxford Street on June 18 (the day Peace Walker is released in the UK), where Kojima and Shinkawa will be in attendance from 4.00-6.00pm signing exclusive inlays.

Next, the pair will hit the UNIQLO store in Oxford Street the following day on June 19 for a second signing, which will last from 11.00am-1.00pm. Here, the duo will be signing copies of Peace Walker or a limited edition postcard.

Furthermore, UNIQLO will be flogging exclusive MGS: Peace Walker T-shirts, and will also be giving away a redeemable code with each shirt to unlock the same item in game.

North American gamers will be getting Peace Walker ten days earlier than us folks across the pond, with the game due out in the U.S. on June 8.
