KONAMI REVEALS IGROMIR LINE-UP, AS METAL GEAR SOLID V: THE PHANTOM PAIN AND PES 2015 MAKE MOSCOW DEBUTS
Konami Digital Entertainment B.V. has announced it will use Igromir – Russia’s largest consumer computer and video gaming event – to show its METAL GEAR SOLID V: THE PHANTOM PAIN and PES 2015 titles.

Since its inception in 2006, Igromir has become the key date in the Russian gaming calendar. The Moscow-based event runs from October 2nd-5th and will be attended by over 150,000 guests. It is held across four halls and will play host to all major global publishers and the October event will also play host to the world-renowned Comicon event for the first time. As such, it is fitting that KONAMI and its local partner, SoftClub, will use a dedicated area to showcase both titles.

METAL GEAR SOLID V: THE PHANTOM PAIN will be represented by a themed display that recreates a military installation as seen in the game. Within this is a 50-seater cinema area where visitors will be greeted by a specially-filmed presentation that features stunning footage from the game, showing updated content and a new location. KONAMI is also planning a series of Igromir-specific announcements regarding the series, which are certain to delight local fans of the series.

KONAMI will also be showing the most recent build of its highly-anticipated PES 2015 at the show. PES 2015 hails a stunning return to form for the football series and was awarded ‘Sports Game of the Show’ at Europe’s gamescom event in August.

PES 2015 marks a concerted return to core PES values of total control, utterly responsive controls and unrestricted gameplay, where the user has complete control over how they play. Every pass, shot or run is finely balanced to give maximum player satisfaction within PES 2015’s on-field action. Visitors will also be able to experience how close control has stepped up a gear as the game’s November 13th launch gets nearer, with the player governing both the positioning of a player, but with greater options of how to dribble into space or beat a marker.

Igromir will represent a fantastic opportunity for visitors to get up to date with the huge advances in both METAL GEAR SOLID V: THE PHANTOM PAIN and PES 2015. KONAMI can be found on Booth G2, Hall 3, and will be running a number of fun activities and competitions throughout the four-day show.
