imageEchoing the original Zone of the Enders, Konami plans on bundling a demo of Metal Gear Rising: Revengence with Zone of the Enders HD Collection, which ships in North America this holiday season. The Metal Gear Rising demo will also be released on PlayStation Network and Xbox Live Arcade at a later date.


Konami upscaled the graphics for Zone of the Enders HD Collection and here’s a quick look at how the game appears in HD.

  • Raiyu

    I was already going to get this game but this is just icing on the cake.

    •  Indeed my good sir, Now i can get my ZoE 1 Goodness (has 2 but is ok buying this for collection/Limited/supporting wise) and then wash it down with a side of REVENGEANCE!!!!

  • Luis Camargo

    Please include a gameplay video or a long trailer for ZOE3, pleeeeease

    • Farid Belkacemi

       It’s not even in development, how would they do that ? :D

      • Nemesis_Dawn

        Someone hasn’t been paying attention the last week, I see.

        • Farid Belkacemi

          Just some artworks and promises from Kojima with the Fox Engine bla bla bla… I don’t call that a game “in development” :p

          • Luis Camargo

             When the HD Collections is gold, they will have more artworks and perhaps they could show some more concepts of the game. I think this would be quite a good bonus with the Collection

          • Farid Belkacemi

             Yeah artworks, it would be cool… But footage ? Never happen (even if I want to believe).

  • Shadowman

    So if I buy this game then I get a demo to Metal Gear: Revengence  to now that what I call a win-win.

  • ThatBlackGuy

    ha jokes on you i was already going to buy this now i have even more of a reason to now.

  • Muffum

    Wasn’t a Metal Gear Solid 2 demo the main reason most people tried out the original Zone of the Enders?

    Boosting a ZoE game’s sales by including a demo of a Metal Gear game starring Raiden*. Funny how these things repeat.

    *I’m not sure if the MGS2 demo actually included Raiden (I’ve heard it only covers Snake’s portion), but my basic point remains.

    • Nemesis_Dawn

      It did not. It only had the Snake section in the tanker.

  • And goodbye my wallet, it was so nice knowing ya

  • Godmars

    And history repeats itself…

  • Not a huge fan of MGS. But the gesture is nice. And I am definitely going to get the HD collection. So there you go.

  • rising demo on vita version of the game too?! nah…

  • Cephrien

    Dude. I fuckin’ love life right now.

    Are you kidding me?
    Fuckin’ pinch me.

  • elsalvadorps

    It is so nice of Konami to include two free games with the Metal Gear Rising Demo

    • Umar Kiiroi Senkō

      LOL nice one! but zone of the enders is gonna be awesome in HD

  • z_merquise

    A sweet package just made it sweeter! What a great news, that’s for sure!

    Thank you, KojiPro!!

  • Joom

    Please be for the Vita version too…

    • Nemesis_Dawn

      As I said above, if they aren’t bringing MGR to Vita, it wouldn’t make sense to do that.

  • Well I’m getting the ZOE HD Collection anyway so this will be a bonus.

  • Kuro Kairi

    We are goint go get the Demo for PS3 even if we buy the PSV version of the collection…


    • Nemesis_Dawn

      Unless they’re bringing MGR to Vita, that would make no sense at all.

  • Herok ♞

    Team Ninja could take some notes here, I might be getting ZoE but if I don’t, I won’t miss out on the demo, unlike with DoA5 where the demo isn’t being released.

  • Zonic505

    Me thinking during the Konami pre-E3 video after watching the MGR trailer: “Man, I sure freakin’ hope there’s a demo of that”.

    “ZoE HD to include Metal Gear Rising demo, coming to Xbox Live/PSN later”.

    Hellz. Yeah. I was already looking forward to ZoE HD, this is just the cherry on top. Plus I know people already pointed it out, but it totally reminds me of the original having a MGS2 demo included.

    • thaKingRocka

       MGS moves ZoE again.

  • AzureNova

    Since I still own the original games and have beaten them already, I’m probably not going to get this, but I must say that everyone who loves mecha games should. ZOE is my favorite mecha series to date and hopefully the next installment will keep it that way.

    Also, Ken and Dingo are looking pretty sweet in HD =^_^=

  • … this going to be a repeat of the case with ZoE1 where, from what I’ve heard, a large majority of its sales were primarily for the bundled MGS2 demo…

  • Roberto Armando Iraheta

    Another reason to get this great collection. BTW, Revengeance is the coolest new word ever.

  • Solomon_Kano

    This collection just got that much more exciting.

  • Chow

    This might just Zero-Shift this game to the top of my list!

  • thaKingRocka

    Demos are not actually categorized under XBLA. They are XBL. The Arcade moniker is for its own particular batch of games that don’t include demos of the $60 retail games.

    I’m really looking forward to trying this one out.

  • Hey Spencer,

    I hope you remember this gem from back in the day, cuz i just updated it for ya! lol

  • Blue_card_

    Just like old times.
