Hideo Kojima, Metal Gear auteur and director of the upcoming PSP adventure Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker, has got Solid Snake fans all hot and bothered in the space of 140 characters.

Writing on his Twitter, Kojima said that "On Wednesday, there will be a big Peace Walker announcement". The announcement will presumably coincide with Konami and Kojima Productions's 'Completion Ceremony', which will be held on Wednesday to celebrate Peace Walker going gold.

Despite its portable nature, Peace Walker is considered the next true instalment in the Metal Gear saga. It will be released in American on June 8th, and in the UK on June 18th.
