Praise Be, Konami's Doing Another Pre-E3 Press Conference

Because there has to be, right?

Yes, friends, it’s true: Konami is holding another pre-E3 press conference. This is amazing news. It’s happening on Thursday, May 31 at 10:30 p.m PST and will be streamed live on Konami’s website.

No details on what the company will actually show, with the press release only teasing “advance showings of the new releases, exclusive game trailers and insightful interviews of key titles.” So, E3 stuff.

It remains unclear whether Konami knows the real reason people watch their pre-E3 (or during E3, as is the case with the video above) press conference, but we’ve gotten at least one really amazing moment each year, so you, me, and everyone else will be tuning in. What will be this year’s transfarring, this year’s one meeeeeeellion troops?

It’s a good bet Metal Gear Rising: Revengence will be shown in some capacity, but what about Hideo Kojima’s secretive Project Ogre? What happened to that WayForward-developed Silent Hill game for Vita that was supposed to come out in March? Konami has been teasing out what might very well be a sequel to Castlevania: Lords of Shadow, and details on the Lords of Shadow-connected spin-off on 3DS have started making the rounds.

If nothing else, we’ll probably get some good tweets from ol’ Tak Fujii. Are you following him on Twitter? You should.
