The highly anticipated Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance, developed by Platinum Games in association with Kojima Productions, will be one of the stars of the show, putting players back in control of cyborg ninja Raiden.
What's more, every existing Metal Gear game will be playable on the slow floor as part of a special commemoration of the series' 25th anniversary.
Fans of Pro Evolution Soccer will have much to look forward to as well, with a huge playable show floor presence as well as freestyle football displays to help mark the series' biggest instalment to date.
Zone of the Enders HD Collection will also be present, allowing old fans to reacquaint themselves and new players to get to know Hideo Kojima's futuristic mech adventure ahead of its HD release. Similarly, Castlevania: Lords of Shadow - Mirror of Fate will be available to play on 3DS.
Konami will also run a competition throughout the Eurogamer Expo, with clues sewn throughout the show guide and venue, giving away amazing prizes.
"We can't wait to play Metal Gear Rising, PES 2013, ZOE HD and Castlevania. It's an absolutely amazing line-up," said Eurogamer Operations Director Tom Bramwell. "There's more to come from Konami, too. Watch this space..."
