Kojima confirmed for conference appearance at E3

Hideo Kojima, creator of the Metal Gear Solid series, will be at the Electronic Entertainment Expo this year. Unfortunately, you won’t see many interviews come out of him – none at all, actually. What you will see is Kojima-san on stage at the Sony and/or Microsoft conferences, most likely showing off Metal Gear Solid: Rising.

“Mr. Kojima is on a very tight schedule, and will not be doing any interviews,” a Konami rep told Dualshockers when trying to schedule interview time with the legendary game developer. “He will be going to E3 and appearing at the conference for the 1st party publishers and that’s it. I don’t even think he’ll make it to our [Konami] own conference. Afterwards, he starts a world tour for Peace Walker.”

There you have it. Maybe we’ll get the first gameplay out of the show? I’d love to see how Rising plays out.
