Many Metal Gear and Platinum Games fans woke up yesterday morning looking forward to downloading the Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance demo from the Japanese PlayStation Store. Little did we know that Konami had region-locked the demo so it would only work on Japanese PS3s.
The publisher recently took to Twitter to allay fans’ frustrations by announcing that the English version of the demo will be released on both PSN and Xbox LIVE sometime during January.
Of course Konami also used the opportunity to remind people that they can get early access to the demo by purchasing the Zone of the Enders HD Collection which was released not too long ago.
Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance will be available for PS3 and Xbox 360 on February 19th in the US and February 21st in European territories. Head over here for El33tonline’s previous coverage of this stylish action title from Kojima Productions and Platinum Games.
