MGS4 finally gets Japanese launch event

By Patrick Garratt, Wednesday, 25 June 2008 13:26 GMT

Konami’s announced that there’s going to be Tokyo dates in the Kojima World Tour added for this weekend, June 28 and 29.

Hideo’s not going to be there, from the look of it, but fans may be able to get art director Yoji Shinkawa’s autograph if they’re fast enough. That’s a sketchy translation, but it seems as though he’s only going to doing 50 signings at each event.

If you recall, the Japanese MGS4 launch events were cancelled in the wake of a murder spree in Akihabara.
