Metal Gear’s 25th anniversary event will include “exciting announcements” and something which will cause the industry to “be shook,” according to the latest Kojima Productions Report podcast.

The promise of something big was announced by Kojima Productions Report podcaster Ken Mendoza, who said the Tokyo Midtown event would contain “a lot of exciting announcements.”

Chris Johns added during the podcast: “A lot of things to look forward to next week, not just for fans, but I think the industry’s gonna be shook by what we’re going to be able to present here.”

The event will contain an announcement in relation to a game idea Hideo Kojima has which “connects people,” and a demo of the Fox Engine will be presented using a new game in the works by the man himself at the event on August 30.

Kojima will then fly to the US to attend Pax Prime where he will be part of an hour long panel hosted by Spike TV’s Geoff Keighley.

The panel is scheduled for 1.00pm PDT on September 1 at the Paramount Theatre, and it will be open to all PAX attendees.

PAX Prime takes place in Seattle from August 31 to September 2.

Thanks, Gematsu.
