Fans of the upcoming title, Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance
, will be pleased to hear that the previously-reported demo
has now been given a firm release date. Platinum Games today announced on their official web page that the demo would be hitting the Xbox LIVE Marketplace worldwide on January 22nd.
To further encourage you to try the demo when it arrives, they also released a new gameplay trailer. The clip runs at just over seven minutes and features a cutscene and some gratuitous sword-fighting gameplay. Although the video is obviously taken from a Playstation console, it still gives a very graphic impression of some of the slicing and dicing you can expect from the game.
Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance
will be released on February 19th in North America and February 21st in Europe.
