We imagine this man will be signing a lot of Metal Gear merchandise on the 27th September

Eurogamer has confirmed that legendary game developer Hideo Kojima will be making a special appearance at this year's Eurogamer Expo to deliver a developer session and celebrate 25 years of Tactical Espionage Action.

Kojima will be speaking on the opening day of the expo, which is now officially the UK's biggest festival of gaming. As if that wasn't enough for rabid Solid Snake fans, every entry in the Metal Gear franchise will be playable at the event - including the forthcoming Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance, which is being developed by Platinum Games.

Konami's involvement with the expo doesn't end there, either - the company is showing a whole host of new titles, including Castlevania: Lords of Shadow - Mirror of Fate on the Nintendo 3DS.

The Eurogamer Expo takes place at London's Earls Court from 27th to 30th September 2012, and tickets are available now from the official expo site.
