Konami just can’t keep a secret. For the second year in a row, the Japanese developer/publisher will hold a “Pre-E3 Show,” that will showcase trailers and announcements concerning their new games, developer interviews and more.
“Konami’s [second] annual Pre-E3 show underscores the company’s commitment to providing the biggest and best content that fans have been waiting for throughout the year, in advance of the world’s marquee video game conference,” saidTomoyuki Tsuboi, President of Konami Digital Entertainment, Inc.
The show will take place on May 31st at 10:30pm PST. No word has been given at this point as to how the show will be broadcast, but an attached image in the press release includes the company’s E3 website, so it would be a safe bet that they’ll be streaming it from there at least.
With the recent reveal of a Zone of the Enders sequel and rumblings that Metal Gear Solid: Revengeance will be playable on the show floor, Konami may be prepping for a big year. What do you think? Let us know in the comments section below.
