Zone of Enders' Jehuty Bust Rises over Tokyo's Akihabara
posted on by Egan Loo
To mark Thursday's release of Konami's Zone of the Enders HD Edition game set in Japan, a Jehuty bust will rise over the roof of a building in Tokyo's Akihabara shopping district. The bust will be perched on the Shimura Musen building, just blocks away from the Japan Railways Akihabara station, from October 25 to November 4. Konami's official website and Kojima Production's official Twitter and Facebook accounts will post updates on the bust.
On Thursday, a prize drawing will be held at the nearby Softmap Akihabara Amusement building and the Konami Style Tokyo Midtown shop for people who buy the game set. The prizes include a poster signed by Zone of the Enders mechanical designer Yōji Shinkawa, a poster with a new piece of visual art of Jehuty, and a premium pamphlet.
Also from October 25 to November 4, there will be playable demos at those same locations as well as at Softmap's main Akihabara building, and the Yodobashi Camera Multimedia Akiba store. Softmap's main Akihabara building will have figures on display.
Twitter followers of Kojima Production's official Twitter account can send photos of the Jehuty bust with the hashtag "#ZOE再起動" for a chance to win one of five posters signed by Shinkawa. The winner will be announced on November 8 and contacted via direct messages.
The same Zone of the Enders HD Edition will arrive in the United States on October 30.
