Metal Gear creator Hideo Kojima will present Rockstar's BAFTA Fellowship award

Metal Gear creator and Konami Digital Entertainment vice president Hideo Kojima will present Rockstar Games with BAFTA's Fellowship award March 12, organizers announced today.

The British Academy of Film and Television Arts announced Rockstar's honor earlier this week, highlighting the studio's work on Bully, the Grand Theft Auto series, L.A. Noire and Red Dead Redemption, in which the developer created "intricately layered interactive worlds that have kept the company at the forefront of the gaming industry for over a decade, both critically and commercially."

Tickets for the event, which will be held at London's Tobacco Dock, are available for purchase online.

Kojima gave BAFTA's Annual Games Lecture in 2012, and you can watch the 30-minute talk at BAFTA's official website. For more on Kojima's next project, Metal Gear Solid 5: Ground Zeroes, the standalone precursor to Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain set to launch March 18, be sure to read our eyes-on impressions from a visit to Kojima Productions' new Los Angeles-based studio.
