How about a midnight launch of Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance, with gaming legends Hideo Kojima and Yoji Shinkawa standing behind the till and physically serving you the game, interested? I thought you might be.
On February 22nd, GAME at Westfield White City will kick off the UK launch of Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance. Hideo Kojima will personally be in attendance, and you’ll have the chance to attend a Q and A with him before grabbing your copy of the game, when twelve strikes. Not only that! Hideo Kojima and Yoji Shinkawa will personally serve the first 200 people in the queue, and if that wasn’t enough, you’ll also be able to have your photo taken with the pair, the ultimate photo to pin up in your gaming crib!
Hideo Kojima and Yoji Shinkawa are encouraging all fans turning up to the midnight launch to dust off their cosplay gear and arrive in full exoskeleton suit.
Dave Howard, Stores Director at GAME said:
If you pop over to twitter and follow @GAMEdigital you can tweet your questions using the hashtag #GAMEAsksKojima, make sure it’s an awesome question, so it’s picked to be answered on launch night!
So how many of you have now read this news and are planning on going? Don’t forget to tweet me a picture of your exoskeleton suit if you’re going, and tweet us at @GMuseOfficial on the night, or post tag a picture to our wall on Facebook Page.
Oh and before I let you all disappear to get working on your suits, if you pre-order from GAME before launch night, you’ll receive a GAME exclusive Steelbook Cover illustrated by Mr. Shinkawa, plus the download code for an in-game bonus: Raiden’s Inferno Armour, which will increase the amount of throwing weapons your character can carry. This in game bonus won’t be available at any other European retailer. All copies of Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance purchased at GAME will also include the character Gray Fox, the original Cyborg Ninja, from the hugely popular Metal Gear Solid, as downloadable content.
So let’s recap on this, for attending the midnight launch you’re getting:
- A Q and A with Hideo Kojima
- Hideo Kojima and Yoji Shinkawa personally serving you your game (if you’re one of the first 200 in line)
- A photo taken with Hideo Kojima and Yoji Shinkawa
- GAME exclusive Steelbook Cover illustrated by Mr. Shinkawa (pre-order before launch night to get this)
- Raiden’s Inferno Armour
… and Gray Fox, the original Cyborg Ninja from the hugely popular Metal Gear Solid, (DLC)
Can you think of any reason not to go???
