Konami has announced that it will be airing it’s semi-annual pre-E3 conference this Thursday at 7:30am EST on GameTrailers.com. While we can only guess at what will be shown, it is worth noting that Konami is home to numerous well known franchises such as Metal Gear Solid, Castlevania, Frogger and Pro Evolution Soccer. The Japan based gaming giant has also been a staunch supporter of Kinect since its inception with Arcade titles such as Leedmees, Hole in the Wall and Rhythm Party, so we’re hoping to see more Kinect enabled love from Konami this year. While E3 2012 will not have officially kicked off when the conference airs, Konami will be the first major publisher to host a conference for this year’s show. We’ll bring you any and all Kinect related news from Konami’s event as it breaks, so be sure to stay tuned!

Leedmees is the third game in a string of Xbox Live Arcade releases to utilize the Kinect sensor and given the lack of quality Kinect titles warranting a full release, this looks to be a good move by Microsoft. Developed by Konami, Leedmees is a puzzle game in which you take on the role of a giant who must help tiny creatures called Leedmees on to safety by using your body to form a bridge and avoiding deadly obstacles such as spikes, ghosts and beach balls.
