E3 2011 is nearly upon us, and Metal Gear series creator Hideo Kojima is busy getting Konami's upcoming Metal Gear Solid: Snake Eater 3D ready for this year's expo extravaganza.

Kojima recently posted a few updates on his Japanese Twitter account, revealing that he has just finished checking through the playable demo of the game which will be showcased at E3. As translated by Andriasang, Kojima hints at what will be included in the demo, stating:

I at last crossed the suspension bridge using the gyro controls...

In a later tweet, Kojima spoke a little bit about the game's control scheme, saying that it's possible to change weapons simply by tapping the touch screen. Players will also be able to crouch walk too, making the art of sneaking around that much more convenient.

Although Kojima won't be going to E3, producer Yoshikazu Matsuhana will be there in attendance. Seems like Kojima's work is mainly being performed backstage, so to speak, as he's also been busy editing a Snake Eater 3D trailer to be shown at the expo.

As previously reported, Snake Eater 3D is scheduled for release by the end of the year.
