Following contact with a currently anonymous ex-employee, a wealth of downloadable secret documents from Konami's vault alongside an upcoming interview set to hold nothing back.

Rather excited to see what comes out of this! The download was pretty useless as I don't read japanese :D But in terms of video game history - it's pretty damn important. Got my copy :D
