Metal Gear's TGS showing
MGS4 and Online playable. Plus the rest of Konami's line-up.
Metal Gear Solid 4 and Metal Gear Solid Online will both be playable at Tokyo Game Show this week. Konami has also prepared new trailers for both, which it showed off at a Japanese press conference earlier today.
MGS4 (which will ship with an Online starter pack) is still down for "early 2008", creator Hideo Kojima told assembled fans and press. TGS attendees will be able to play it along with six-versus-six MG Online.
Pro Evolution Soccer's Japanese cousin Winning Eleven will also be on hand following a similar showing at Leipzig's Games Convention, and Konami reiterated a spring 2008 date for the Wii version. PES 2008's due out on PS3, 360, PS2 and PC on 26th October.
Konami also said that Silent Hill 5 - due on 360 and PS3 - will be released in fiscal year 2008.
Also in the publisher's TGS line-up are DS title Time Hollow, Metal Gear Solid Portable Ops Plus and Silent Hill Origins for PSP, the new Metal Gear Solid 2 Bande Desinee PSP digital graphic novel, along with DS titles Pilates, Yoga and Skin Basic, Wii fitness-'em-up Dance Dance Revolution Hottest Party, and a couple of baseball games.
We'll be making a box-covered crawl for MGS4 just as soon as our Soliton radars permit, so watch out for our impressions later in the week.
