Metal Gear Online Celebrates Ga-Ko and Kerotan Birthdays

Konami is holding four online events, two for each character, in the upcoming months.

Fans of Metal Gear Online will be excited to know Konami plans to hold four 24-hour survival events to promote the birthdays of Ga-Ko, the duck, and Kerotan, the frog.

Players who participate will be able to earn RWD points and bonus content, including Ghillie Suits in Ga-Ko's yellow or Kerotan's green. The players who participate in both birthday events for one of the characters will also receive an extra 1500 RWD points, as well as a felt hat in yellow or green, which, like the Ghillie Suit, is based on which character is being celebrated.

The first and second events are for Ga-Ko, and are March 27th and April 24th. The second two are for Kerotan, and are May 22nd and June 26th. All events begin at 10am PDT, and conclude at 10am PDT the following day.

I remember seeing Kerotan all over Metal Gear Solid 3, IIRC. Chris was playing, and he'd croak whenever you'd hit him. Ga-Ko, I only know from the camouflage, though.
