Hideo Kojima, Yuji Horii and More Will Celebrate PlayStation’s 20th Anniversary With Livestream Tomorrow

on December 2, 2014 5:52 AM

Tomorrow is PlayStation’s 20th anniversary, and the two biggest gaming magazines in Japan (Famitsu and Dengeki PlayStation) will celebrate the event directly from the venue of the PlayStation Awards with a livestream available on Nico Nico or YouTube.

The livestream will start just after the PlayStation Awards at 6:30 PM local time, and will run for an hour, hosted by Famitsu’s Editor in Chief Katsuhiko Hayashi and Dengeki PlayStation’s Editor in Chief Yoshimichi Nishioka.

What’s even more interesting is that there will be a star-spangled cast of developers in attendance at the livestream: Metal Gear Solid Creator Hideo Kojima and Character Designer Yoji Shinkawa, Tales of Producer Hideo Baba, Resident Evil Developer and Producer Hiroyuki Kobayashi, Dragon Quest Creator Yuji Horii and PlayStation Japan President Atsushi Morita.

It’s unknown whether they’ll come with announcements, or they’ll show gameplay or anything of the sort, but that’s definitely a great cast of guests.
