Konami has confirmed its attendance of gamescom 2012 and will bring along Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance, PES 2013 and two new instalments in the Castlevania: Lords of Shadow series.

The publisher will also be using a dedicated virtual studio on its stand to deliver a series of events to gamers. The studio will host interviews with the leading talents behind Konami's games, and promises a steady stream of coverage through the publisher's many social media channels.

The studio will be staged at Konami's stand in Hall 7.

Users of social networks will also have the chance to interact and leave direct feedback, while show attendees can also be more directly involved.

"Innovation and strong brands - that is what Konami is all about at this year's gamescom," explained Martin Schneider, general manager of Konami Digital Entertainment GmbH. "With new versions of Pro Evolution Soccer, Metal Gear and Castlevania: Lords of Shadow, fans and gamers are introduced to our best brands. And via Konami onAir, we can connect directly with our community and bring Konami's gamescom attractions to gamers all over the world - an exciting interaction that has never been at the show before."

gamescom runs August 15-19 in Cologne, Germany.
