Konami's line-up

Metal Gear Solid 3, Silent Hill 4, Suikoden IV, Gradius V, Boktai 2 and lots of other games from Konami's Tokyo and Japan studios.

For some reason we can't be bothered to go into, Konami's Tokyo (TYO) and Japan (JPN) studios have announced separate line-ups for this year's E3 trade show, which unite in a manner not unlike Devastator to stomp on their enemies and bring chaos and disorder to the planet.

Heading up the combined line-up are Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater (expected to be playable) and Silent Hill 4: The Room, with the likes of Suikoden IV, Gradius V, Neo Contra, Nanobreaker and Boktai 2 occupying areas of the torso and lower body. In fact, in a rare break with protocol, Boktai 2 will be positioned on the derriere so that the sun can shine in through the publisher's [that's enough of that -Ed].

Elsewhere on the list there's no sign of a new Pro Evolution game - not of the PS2, PC or even Xbox variety. Don't be too surprised if it's nowhere to be seen, given that football/soccer isn't exactly the chosen sport of most of the show's attendees, although if it does pitch up we'll be sure to give it a thorough going over.
