The man behind Solid Snake, Hideo Kojima, is heading stateside, ready to pound American pavement to drum up support for his latest game, Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker. The benefit to you? You can rub elbows with the man.
Kojima will be visiting New York City and Los Angeles in June, armed with Sharpies and a very supple wrist, ready to sign his name to whatever trinket or body part you request. Actually, he'd probably prefer you hand him a new copy of Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker to sign, so ignore that more fleshy suggestion.
The Metal Gear man will, as previously noted, make an appearance at Uniqlo SOHO for the launch of the Peace Walker t-shirt line. For the man's other rare North American appearance, check the details below.
