Konami announced earlier today that a number of their titles will be playable at gamescom this August.
The games that will be available to demo include Platinum Games’ Metal Gear spin-off Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance, Pro Evolution Soccer 2013, Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 and Castlevania: Lords of Shadow – Mirror of Fate. While Revengeance was playable at E3, it was only available behind closed doors, so gamescom will serve as the first public venue to check out this Metal Gear action game.
According to Konami head Martin Schneider:
Innovation and strong brands – that is what Konami is all about at this year’s Gamescom.
With new versions of Pro Evolution Soccer, Metal Gear and Castlevania: Lords of Shadow, fans and gamers are introduced to our best brands. And via Konami onAir, we can connect directly with our community and bring Konami’s Gamescom attractions to gamers all over the world – an exciting interaction that has never been at the show before.
Gamescom kicks off mid-August in Cologne, Germany.
