Konami pre-E3 event tonight, Kojima E3 site to open tomorrow

The bombs start dropping tonight: Konami is hosting its pre-E3 event later this evening, where it’s already been confirmed that Kojima Productions will have a role to play. Alas, there’s more. KP’s E3 portal opens tomorrow.

Famitsu (via Andriasang) reports the portal will go list at 10am JPST tomorrow morning. It also claims that a video interview with Hideo Kojima will be shown at the event tonight.

This may have something to do with an interview he did on Monday with ex-1UP writer Mark MacDonald.

Kojima’s already said he won’t be in Los Angeles for the show next week.

Last week, KP confirmed it would have “some surprises” for Konami’s pre-E3 event, with a special episode of The Kojima Productions Report to go live afterwards.

A PS3 version of Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker is highly rumoured for a reveal, as is Kojima’s NGP title. Rising and MGS 3DS – shown off on Twitter yesterday – are pretty much guarantees for the show.

Konami’s pre-E3 event kicks off from 5pm PST (1am BST) tonight. Watch VG247 for updates later tonight.
