Konami Giveaways at MCM This Weekend

October 22, 2012, Author: Matt Parker

As if getting to play Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance well before it comes out wasn’t good enough, Konami are upping the ante by giving away some exclusive freebies at this weekend’s MCM Expo.

You’re going to have to work for them though as you need to complete the Revengeance demo in under 10 minutes. Doing so will see you walk away with both a lenticular poster and a T-shirt. Result.

Konami aren’t just rewarding those that show their skill at Revengeance, but also those that come in cosplay. An announcement made said;

“Konami is also offering awesome limited edition Metal Gear prizes for fans who come dressed in Metal Gear themed cosplay. On Saturday and Sunday of the show, the publisher is giving away a rare Metal Gear 4 statue to the best Metal Gear cosplay, while runners-up will win extremely rare ‘Big Boss Wants You’ T-shirts, Metal Gear HD Collection Special Editions and a set of five hard-to-find Uniqlo Metal Gear 25th Anniversary T-shirts. They’ll also be giving away Metal Gear art books, Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance posters and T-shirts to all who come to the show in Metal Gear themed costumes.”

MCM Expo, taking place at London’s ExCel Centre this weekend, is one of the UK’s best movie, comic and manga get-togethers. Don’t be fooled though, I’ve been going to MCM Expo for a couple of years now and each time the gaming section has kept on getting bigger, with this year being no exception.
