Konami has today revealed that a demo will be made available next week for their upcoming re-named action title Metal Gear Rising: Revengance. Available on January 23rd, the three-stage demo will give players a glimpse at the game’s very unique Zan-Datsu combat system, which was previously showcased last year.
Metal Gear Rising: Revengance begins with Raiden working for an agency protecting an African Prime Minister as he looks to engineer a better future for his country, only to be attacked by cyborg swordsmen, who then turn attention to Raiden. What follows is a classic story of revenge and hope, as Raiden uses his High Frequency Blade to exact bloody revenge on those that stand between him and those that wronged him. The demo gives players their first use of Raiden's new cyborg body and a blade that can cut through virtually anything with total freedom.The demo will be available for both the PlayStation 3 and the Xbox 360 on their respective online services.
Metal Gear Rising: Revengance will launch on February 21st.
