Metal Gear Revengeance demo available to all next week


6:00 PM on 01.15.2013



With just over a month until release, Konami has announced today that the demo for Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance will go into full distribution via PlayStation Network and Xbox Live on January 22nd. This demo is the same as the one which was used to sell packaged in copies of Zone of the Enders HD

Along with the announcement comes a new trailer for the game, which has a good chunk of action-filled gameplay. The immediacy with which Raiden leaps into combat once the cutscene ends is almost intimidating by way of its visual complexity, but my experience with the game at TGS demonstrated well enough that it's not as hard to do some of this stuff as it might appear.

My only niggling gripe about it is in regards to Raiden's voice acting. The bits at the very start of the video, involving his internal monologue, calls to mind the Christian Bale portrayal of Batman and is kind of rubbing me the wrong way. Thankfully, he also speaks like a normal human being when talking to other characters. I hope the game features more of the latter than the former or I'm going to have a hard time taking Raiden seriously (and that's already a challenge sometimes).

Only other thing to do is wait, I guess. Revengeance will release on February 19 on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
