Last week Konami put up a teaser on the MGS HD site.
Well, Konami has now unveiled their big ‘surprise.’ Are you sure you’re ready?
Konami has announced that Haruna Kojima, member of pop group AKB48, will be the face of Metal Gear Solid HD Collection’s promotional campaign.
The whole play on the Spring theme? Well Haru means Spring in Japanese and was just a play on Haruna’s name.
Here’s some extra inside info from our pop correspondent, Tuffcub:
AKB48 are named after Akihabara, the area in Tokyo where the band’s own theater is located. The group consists of four Teams with Teams A, K and B having 16 girls and Team 4 having eleven members making 59 girls in the entire group. Since 2009 the have had ten number one singles in Japan and are ridiculously popular.
Outside of their country they are virtually unheard of so Kojima’s big reveal has had less of an impact.
He’s also unearthed this video of them in action.
