Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance Rocks Los Angeles at CityWalk Launch Party
Early Monday afternoon, fans were already lined up in the hundreds in anticipation for the release of Kojima Productions/Platinum Games' newest title, Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance. GamerHub arrived on the scene after departing from Loews Hollywood Hotel not too far away, where we sat down with Atsushi Inaba and Yuji Korekado (coming soon!), the game's producers. By the time the producers arrived and began the event, the line had tripled in length, and cosplayers were stepping out for photos to keep fans entertained. Sheer excitement spanned the area that bridged the gap between Universal CityWalk's GameStop and the Hard Rock Hotel.
As fans entered, they were greeted by a stoic, quiet assassin who was kind enough to take photos with the fans. The Raiden cosplayer was just the beginning -- guests were invited to chat for a moment with Producers Korekado and Inaba, and take home their autographed copy of the game.
