A Konami press release today showed a couple of high definition photos and video of the upcoming game Castlevania game. On a side note, make sure to keep it lock as we will be attending the San Diego Comic-Con covering all of the game industry booths and games that will be present there! Konami will host a special autograph signing by Hideo Kojima, as well as Yoji Shinkawa on Thursday, July 21. They will also hold a Costume contest with yours truly participating. You have to wait and see what I am bringing to the table! Peace!
It’s about that time again. For those of you who may not be familiar with the San Diego Comic-Con here’s a brief rundown. SDCC has been around for 40 years and it is a non profit organization. It was first established as a comic book convention but now has grown to everything pop culture including video games. You guy’s are probably thinking “nerd alert” right?.. Well you’re wrong my friends. Last year we saw the likes of Marvel Vs. Capcom 3 character reveals, Street Fighter x Tekken reveal, and a Konami costume contest overseen by Hideo Kojima himself. Lets not forget the crazy Marvel Vs. Capcom party last year that was attended by yours truly and the likes of Seth Rogen and Kelly Hu. This year should be filled with over the top presentations from the top names of the industry. The games and publishers booths may not be as elaborate as E3 but they get the job done.
Oly1Kenobi will be at Comic-Con 2010 Friday – Sunday. He’ll be Live Blogging as well, starting at 10 a.m. PDT on Friday, July 23rd. So be sure to check back tomorrow!
