Metal Gear Solid Hideo Kojima is to keynote next month's Game Developers Conference in San Francisco.
He will talk to the assembled developers - in his first ever GDC talk - in a session called 'Solid Game Design: Making the ‘Impossible’ Possible'.
GDC takes place from March 23rd to March 27th - Kojima's talk takes place on the 26th at 10.30am.
Kojima's career doesn't just span countless Metal Gear titles but also innovative games such as Boktai, Zone of the Enders and Snatcher.
“The Game Developers Conference has invited Hideo Kojima to keynote every year for as long as I can remember, so we couldn't be more excited that, at long last, he feels that it is time for him to address the game development community,” said Meggan Scavio, event director of the GDC.
“The anticipation is already huge to see how one of the community’s most revered and elusive creators will inspire attendees to further push the limits of game development.”
