August 8th, 2012 by Marc Comments

Konami Digital Entertainment GmbH has announced that legendary Metal Gear Solid creator Hideo Kojima will return to London in September.

Mr Kojima,who will use the trip to host a developer session at this year’s Eurogamer Expo, has been celebrating the 25th anniversary of the seminal Metal Gear series.

Fittingly, the series and other Kojima Productions’ titles will be well represented at the Eurogamer Expo, which is being held between September 27-30 at London’s Earl’s Court venue.

Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance and Zone of the Enders HD Collection will both be playable at the event, and the series’ heritage will also be celebrated with a demonstration of every Metal Gear title within a special retro-themed area.

The Eurogamer Expo is the UK’s largest gathering of video games, and Mr Kojima will be attending to give the first of its hugely-popular Keynote Speeches on September 27.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
