JUST ANNOUNCED: Konami’s Akira Yamaoka Coming to Saboten Con 2012

20 12 2011

Saboten Con representatives officially announced Monday night that longtime Konami composer Akira Yamaoka would be attending the event in 2012.

Yamaoka is a composer for the studio most widely known for his compositions featured in the Silent Hill series of video games, most notably Silent Hill 3. His most recent sound work includes the 2011 demon shoot’em up title Shadows of the Damned. Yamaoka will join fellow video game guests Phil LaMarr, the voice of Vamp in the Metal Gear series, and Troy Baker, voice of Vincent in the game Catherine, at the convention.

[UPDATE: Saboten Con officials further announced that Yamaoka, along with Troy Baker and Mary Elizabeth McGlynn, will be putting on a Silent Hill music concert on the Saturday of the event. Your mind blown yet?]

It appears that Saboten Con is bringing out the big guns for their venue move to the bigger (and hopefully better) Glendale Renaissance Hotel for the event on September 1st through the 3rd.

With that, why not check out our awesome (and recently recovered) interview with Reuben Langdon at the 2011 Sabo event?
