When last did a gaming event made the entire games industry take notice? I can’t remember. Maybe when Final fantasy XIII was announced for Xbox 360 in 2008, remember that? Next week, however, games legend Hideo Kojima is promising to “shake up” the industry with some massive news.
The industry-rocking revelation will be announced at Metal Gear Solid’s 25th anniversary, happening in Tokyo, Japan, next week, according to Kojima Productions Report podcaster Ken Mendoza, speaking on the latest recording of the podcast. But while Mendoza’s comments were tamed, revealing that there’ll be “a lot of exciting announcements”, it was Chris Johns, Mendoza’s sidekick who let loose the stunner.
“A lot of things to look forward to next week, He said, “not just for fans, but I think the industry’s gonna be shook by what we’re going to be able to present here.”
Mark your calendars, the event happens on August 30th.
