Kojima and Konami friends at gamescom

Seabass! Greyhound! Men without nicknames!

Konami has announced that PES 2010 producer Shingo "Seabass" Takatsuka, PES 2010 Wii producer Akiyoshi "Greyhound" Chosokabe and Metal Gear Solid's dad Hideo "Hideo Kojima" Kojima will all be at gamescom flogging their wares.

PES 2010, Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker and Silent Hill: Shattered Memories will all be presented to the public at the consumer event, which takes place in Cologne between 19th and 23rd August.

Konami also plans to show off its latest Bemani music games and Mercury Steam's upcoming Castlevania: Lords of Shadow, and promises special presentations of all its games, plus hopefully some press interviews. Please.

Look out for lots of gamescom coverage this time next month.
