Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance Launch Event

At midnight on Thursday 21st February 2013 GAME in White City, London are holding an event for the release of Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance – but this one’s a little bit special.

Legendary videogames director Hideo Kojima, together with lead artist and series creative director Yoji Shinkawa, will be taking part in a live Q & A session about the Metal Gear franchise at the store, taking photos with fans, and even better – serving the first 200 people in the queue!

“200 lucky gamers will receive their copy of Revengeance straight from the hands of the two men who created it!”

GAME are encouraging fans to make this an event to remember by cosplaying as their favourite characters from the franchise – and yes, you can even disguise yourself as a cardboard box. Fans can also tweet @GAMEdigital with any questions they have in the run-up to the event – just remember to add #GAMEasksKojima. The best questions will be answered the great man himself during the live Q & A at the White City store.

Pre-ordering the game will net you a steelbook cover illustrated by Yoji Shinkawa, and a GAME-only exclusive – the download code for Raiden’s Inferno Armour!

To celebrate the launch of Metal Gear Rising we will be holding we will be giving away a copy of the game to one lucky winner! Tune in to The Geek Show from 5 – 7 pm on Sunday 17th February to find out how you can win this exclusive prize. The competition will run for one week, and the winner will be announced live on Sunday 24th February.

Remember folks Рtweet your questions to @GAMEdigital using #GAMEasksKojima, and if you can, get yourself to GAME in White City at midnight on Thursday 21st February for the chance to meet the man behind one of the most iconic gaming franchises of all time.

Co-founder of The Geek Show Podcast Network. Chief Editor and Executive Producer of, and tangentially overburdened host/co-presenter of several shows on the network. When I'm not engaged in production, journalistic shenanigans or the quagmire that is media criticism I watch movies, interesting TV shows and anime, I also enjoy the arts (you know, classical music and stuff), write many, many things, play and collect a lot of video games, read lots of manga, comics and books, and generally enjoy wallowing in the mass of entertainment media like a hippo in mud. I can also cook.
