Yes, Konami is still making games to show.
Konami might have gained a rightful reputation for their tone deaf pursuit of Pachinko earnings while they ruin their legendary franchises, but believe it or not, Konami is still ostensibly a game company. Via press release today, Konami even announced their plans to attend Gamescom 2018 in between their lucrative new pastime of turning the dreams of Metal Gear Solid 3 fans into so many tiny pachinko balls.
The four titles announced will all be available to attendees on the show floor in Cologne, Germany during the August 21 to 25 run. In its playable debut, the Switch exclusive Hyper Sports R will have several of the game’s events available to test drive. Zone of the Enders: The 2nd Runner MARS will also be available ahead of the September launch. They’ll also have a booth to continue to push their Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Links mobile title, and to the surprise of nobody at all, they’ll have Pro Evolution Soccer 2019 on the floor.
Of course, other game developers will be at GamesCom too, with Capcom, THQ Nordic, Bandai Namco and Microsoft all having made announcements as to what to expect from them at the August show. Which title are you most looking forward to? Let us know in the comments.
