Legendary Metal Gear Solid Duo Set to Infiltrate London

May 20, 2010Written by Kyle P.

Aside from Japan, the rest of the world is patiently waiting for legendary game creator, producer and designer, Hideo Kojima’s latest entry into the Metal Gear Solid series, Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker. Tagging along with Kojima has been Yoji Shinkawa, the lead artist who is best known for creating a multitude of characters, including Solid Snake; environments and weapons. Now, advent fans of the series, who happen to live in England, will have an opportunity within the coming month to meet their favorite video game duo.

Beginning the day of the game’s launch in Europe, June 18th, Kojima and Shinkawa will be autographing exclusive game in-lays at the London HMV store. Then, the next day, the duo will be at autographing again, only this time, at the London UNIQLO store, where they will be autographing actual copies of the game, or a limited edition postcard. Fans of the series will remember UNIQLO massively produced MGS4 t-shirts, and it looks like they are back at it again, as they will be selling Peace Walker t-shirts, with an exclusive code inside all of them, that will unlock that specific t-shirt within the game.

Diehard fans of the series may remember the worldwide signing tour Kojima and his team did, during the release of Metal Gear Solid 4. While this is not worldwide, and restricted to one city, it still goes to show the amount of respect and admiration Kojima and Shinkawa have for their fans.
