Metal Gear Production Manager Ken-ichiro Imaizumi has shot down rumours of a PS3 exclusive game to be announced by Kojima at this September’s Tokyo Games Show.

Responding to the rumour which appeared on CVG yesterday, Imaizumi tweeted: “I say it is just a rumour. I have no idea who made it up such a story”. This was quickly re-tweeted by Mr. Kojima himself.

The rumour originated from a “senior US publishing source”, who claimed the demo was originally for E3 but was pulled to ensure it was “bulletproof”.

This would have left Kojima Production’s E3 schedule quite busy indeed, having already unveiled a Snake Eater re-release for the 3DS and in-game footage of Metal Gear Solid: Rising.

It would have presumably given the company a reveal at the Sony press conference, the only platform without Metal Gear footage this year. Make of this what you will.
