AKB48 Member Promotes Metal Gear Solid HD

This is the surprise Kojima Productions was teasing last week at the Metal Gear Solid HD Edition official site:

The girl in the video is Haruna Kojima, a member of pop group AKB48. Kojima Productions has tapped her for the Metal Gear Solid HD Edition promotional campaign.

All the "Spring has come to Kojima Productions" nonsense from the teaser site was just a play on Haruna's name. "Haru" is Japanese for Spring.

View the official site here for pics and, eventually, additional videos.

eff yeah. kojima endorsing kojima productions, it came full-circle.

How do you know if the girls know what the game is about or not?

Do they look like gamers to you?
They never talk about games. Usually we know when idol are gamers and AKB girls have said to like game like Zelda and Mario cart, not MGS.
And by all the cuteness she's using in those shoot... that ain't MGS at all. Far from it actually

The game is even more popular then the girl that's not a hate comment just a fact. I'm dessapointed cause she doesn't fit the game's image. This is for a gamer pov this has nothing to do with her as a person or an artist.

I only play mature-rated games for mature gamers such as myself.

I'm more of a RPG kindda person but I'm a gamer and I still think that they could choose someone else. I'm not saying this against her but against the person who chose her.

So there's a certain look to gamers now? Shes too cute to be someone who knows the game?

There are a ton of girls in the group, not all of them have talked about what games they do or do not play.There is no way for you to know if some of those girls play MGS or not. If you're upset a popular idol is promoting a game you like then be honest about it.

Did you read the comment? If not do so cause you're missing my point obviously.
I've said it I don't hate the girl and I don't mind her being an idol but I'm disapointed and guess what I'm free to say so.
Her image (not her) doesn't fit the game's image.
If you're not able to make the differnce between the girl's image and her personnality scroll by.

"AKB to promote Metal gear solid... seriously? They don't even know what the game is about."

Does not come across as "The girls image doesn't fit the game, they should have picked someone else to promote it". Your second comment continued that line of thinking with "the girls not looking like gamers".

Guess what, you are free to say you are disappointed and I am free to point how condescending you are coming across when you only mention gamer looks. You cannot tell if someone likes a game based on their looks alone. Gamers like you are the reason there is a ton of sexism in the "gamer community". Thank you for that.

We'll have to agree to disagree because you are missing my point

That was my first reaction and I precised my opinion later on. But obvisouly you stuck on that on.
And guess what I'm a girl so don't give me the sexist speach.
I wasn't condescending to you nor was I passive-aggressive like you were, just because you felt that I attack your fav.
But see I'm not attacking them (or at least not anymore if you wish me to say so) but the guy who did the casting.
And unlike you I'm fine with people having their opinion even if I desagree with it you should try that.
