Konami UK states in a press release:
Konami Digital Entertainment B.V. has announced that Hideo Kojima, the world famous creator of the METAL GEAR saga, will be in Paris for the promotion of METAL GEAR SOLID V: GROUND ZEROES on March 18th.
Mr. Kojima will be visiting Paris, France to promote METAL GEAR SOLID V: GROUND ZEROES during its launch week. His Parisian tour starts with a private signing session at a select Micromania Store, where he will act as an honorary General Manager for the morning. 150 guests will be selected through an online contest on the Micromania website and will have the opportunity to be the first to get their hands on a copy of METAL GEAR SOLID V: GROUND ZEROES. Entrants must hold a Micromania card, have pre-ordered METAL GEAR SOLID V: GROUND ZEROES and answer a round of questions about the game. Promotional items will also be offered aside to the signature session for the lucky few.
In order to meet the incredible demand to see Mr. Kojima, in the late afternoon, the MK2 quai de Loire will host an open signing session for an hour. Mr. Kojima will be available to sign copies of the game that will be sold in advance for the duration of the event.
To conclude his visit, Mr. Kojima – a well-known lover of cinema – has selected a movie that inspired his work that will be displayed in the MK2 quai de Loire cinema. He will attend its screening and host a short Q&A session with those who will have booked their tickets.
For more information on the signing session in the Micromania Store, go here. For more information on the movie screening, go here.
Unfortunately Paris and London seem to be the only cities Kojima is visiting this time around. But it’s interesting to speculate on what his BAFTA presentation will be about.
Update: Kojima will present the Academy Fellowship to Rockstar Games. Go here for more info.
