Kojima Productions have today announced that tomorrow’s Kojima Station update will be bringing with it a look at the TGS trailer for Metal Gear Solid V The Phantom Pain. But on top of that amazing revelation is the news of what they’ll be bringing to TGS around this game. From guests, goods, stage events and more at the Konami TGS booth, all will be revealed tomorrow.
Konami will also be hosting a “Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain Stage” on Saturday 20th September which will see various voice actors attending. Akio Otsuka (Snake), Stefanie Joosten (Quiet) and Satoshi Mikami (Ocelot) will all be appearing. More voice actors will be showing up on Sunday 21st September as well. As soon as the news breaks, we’ll have it up here. We can’t wait!
Hyrule Warriors has already released in Japan but that hasn’t stopped Koei Tecmo from releasing news around an update at Tokyo Game Show. They plan to hold a competition during one of the days open to the public, namely Saturday 20th September. That’s all they’ve announced so far with more news in their next Twitter update.
The game has already received a hefty update in Japan which brought to it an 8-bit NES-style sword and shield for Link while also addressing some bugs and installing the Challenge Mode.
I wasn’t going to post this being that I’m not the biggest Microsoft fan but then I thought that there may be a couple of readers who may want to know what Microsoft will be bringing to next week’s Tokyo Game Show.
Haruka Tomatsu is a Japanese voice actress and singer, she’s also the voice behind Asuna on Sword Art Online. She’s currently making a debut of sorts by starring in a commercial for Furuta candy which you can check out below.
A new powerhouse from Japan has jumped into the fray to help promote the 3DS launch of Super Smash Bros. Japanese girl group AKB48 features in the new commercial screening on Japanese TV in a cute Mii style. The ad also serves to show exactly how the Miis can be used in the game and what kind of action you can expect from the game when it releases.
Just in time for the sweltering Autumn season that Japan is well known for is this tasty new treat from McDonald’s Japan. It’s a Purple Sweet Potato McShake and yes, it really is purple. The shake landed in Japan today and will be around until the end of October. A small sized shake will set you back ¥100 while the medium sized one is only ¥195 so very affordable and cheap indeed!
So you’re going to Tokyo Game Show for the first time, or the fourth, and you aren’t sure where everything is and don’t want to miss out on anything? Then this super duper handy floor map will come in handy.
Another big hitter in the gaming world, Sony have revealed what they’re bringing to the table for this year’s Tokyo Game Show and boy, it is good! There’s quite a few games in there that I’d love to get my hands on, in particular, Dengeki Bunko Fighting Climax on the PS Vita, being more of a handheld gamer. The Order: 1886 on the PS4 has a lot of tongues wagging as does The Evil Within, the latest opus from the father of Resident Evil, Shinji Mikami.
