Metal Gear Solid Peace Walker World Tour Detailed
Find out where you need to be to see Kojima and Shinkawa speak.
Konami has shared final details on its upcoming Metal Gear Solid Peace Walker World Tour event. The promotional tour was first announced at the Peace Walker completion ceremony press conference a couple of weeks back.
The World Tour will see Hideo Kojima and other staff members travel the world to promote Peace Walker's release. Konami held a similar tour for Metal Gear Solid 4's release two years ago.
As Peace Walker arrives first in Japan, the tour kicks off in Japan too. On April 29, Peace Walker's release day, Kojima and crew will appear at multiple shops in Tokyo. They'll travel to the Kansai area in the coming days, then head out to Korea, Taiwan and Hong Kong the following week. The tour's North American and European legs are set for June, timed with Peace Walker's release in those territories.
