Konami Has Big Plans For E3

Exciting news has emerged with Konami's plans for E3, which is only a little over a month out. Some very impressive games are getting ready for the pre-E3 show, but it's not just the games that are worth noting with Konami's pre-E3 event.

The Electronics Entertainment Expo (E3) has been a big deal for some time. When E3 shows up, all the big names put on a big show--with varying degrees of big, of course--but the common thread is that the upcoming titles for most every console get trotted out. Konami looks to be no exception on this front with several titles prepared.

Not only will Konami have footage for the new Pro Evolution Soccer game--always a must for soccer fans--but also, ther will be a new trailer for "Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2" as well as several "new announcements" coming in from Kojima Productions, which bodes well for new announcements on the Metal Gear Solid front. Considering that only recently the marketing for "Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain".

But that's not all the great news coming out this time: the pre-E3 event, Konami's third thus far, will be streamed live for those who want to see it. Starting at one P.M. Eastern time, the show can be seen on Gamespot, on Xbox Live's Gamespot app, and on Konami's events page as well.

It's interesting that Konami's putting on this kind of show just ahead of E3. The full array of new consoles are likely to be shown soon, but from the looks of it, Konami's show is going to have a bit of a lack when it comes to new console matter. However, it's still sufficiently early that anything else could be coming out. There's nothing to say there won't be a new console version of all these games listed, either, as well as any other titles that just plain aren't in play. Not seeing a Konami launch title for the new consoles would be a bit hard to swallow, in all honesty, but there's still a lot of ground to cover between here and there.

It's odd to not see some next generation stuff mentioned here, but then, it simply may be just not mentioned yet. Chances are there will be plenty more to see not only with Konami's pre-E3 show, but also with Konami's actual E3 presence. It's clear that this will be one of the bigger E3 events to take place in a long time, and with just under a month to go, there's plenty of anticipation to go around.
