Konami Set For Gamescom 2012


Konami will be showing off their biggest titles at this year’s Gamescom. They will also break new ground with ‘KONAMI OnAir’ which will broadcast during the event.

Gamescom is held at Cologne from August 15th – 19th and comes as the premier European gaming event. Konami will be showing off games such as Metal Gear Rising: RevengeancePES 2013 and two new installments in the Castlevania: Lords of Shadow series. They will be using a dedicated virtual studio on its stand to deliver a series of events to enhance the exhibition experience. The studio will host interviews with the leading talents behind their games, and will offer a steady stream of coverage through the publisher’s many social media channels.

It will be housed on the Konami stand over at Hall 7. It will broadcast news, trailers, interviews, which will be available via live streams, Youtube, Facebook and Twitter. Users will have the chance to interact and leave direct feedback, while show attendees can also be more directly involved. A detailed schedule of the shows will be announced at a later date.
