Konami will use this year’s gamescom event to showcase its forthcoming titles, and will also break new ground with ‘Konami OnAir’, which will be broadcast during the five-day event.
Held in Cologne from August 15th-19th, gamescom is the premier European gaming event. Konami will be using the event to show titles such as Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance, PES 2013 and two new installments in the Castlevania: Lords of Shadow series. Furthermore, Konami will be using a dedicated virtual studio on its stand to deliver a series of events to enhance the exhibition experience. The studio will host interviews with the leading talents behind Konami’s games, and will offer a steady stream of coverage through the publisher’s many social media channels.
The studio will be housed on the Konami stand in Hall 7, and will broadcast news, trailers, interviews, which will be available via live streams, Youtube, Facebook and Twitter. Users of social networks will also have the chance to interact and leave direct feedback, while show attendees can also be more directly involved. A detailed schedule of the shows will be announced at a later date.
