Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance Demo Slicing Up PSN On December 13

By Spencer . December 3, 2012 . 9:48pm


Missed Tokyo Game Show? Well, you can get a taste of Metal Gear Rising: Revengance on December 13. Konami will release the TGS demo, which was also packaged with Zone of the Enders HD Collection as a bonus.


The demo has a VR mission that teaches players how to use Raiden’s sword by cutting digital watermelon. At the end of the demo, players will fight LQ-84i or "Bladewolf" an intelligent robot dog with a chainsaw tail.


Since the news comes from Konami Japan, nothing was said about an Xbox Live Arcade demo. That makes sense since the Xbox 360 version of Metal Gear Rising was cancelled in Japan. Metal Gear Rising: Revengance will still be available for PS3 and Xbox 360 in North America and Europe.

    -leans into the mic, clears throat-…..Hell….Yes. That is all.

  • popyea

    So is this for all PSN regions? Or just Japan?

    • haku67

    I look forward to comments about this demo making no mention of dmc…….nah i’m kidding but i want to try this out soon.

  • Nitraion

    Okay this week is full of demo…

  • Nice. Revengence is looking pretty sharp. See what I did there. ^_^

  • Bloodios

    I’m glad I waited instead of giving in and purchasing that collection of botched HD ports. It won’t be too long now~~

    Still loling at Bladewolf. Welp, gonna be interesting to see how this one fares- I am interested in playing this and seeing what Platinum will do with it, and how much/how little it will feel like Bayonetta and how much/how little it will feel like Metal Gear Solid.

    • Doubt it’ll feel much like Bayonetta.
      Positive it’ll feel nothing like Metal Gear Solid.
      (Hint: it’s not an MGS game).
      Just play it for what it is ;)

      • Göran Isacson

        I already know it will play differently, I’m just wondering if the story will feel similar in spirit.

        • Ahh, story-wise you have a point. From the demo (which is fantastic, btw) it does indeed feel like a healthy mix of Metal Gear fantasy and PG’S cool, memorable scripts. I like to think of it with more bias towards PG, though, seeing as it’s essentially a Metal Gear “spin-off” – not gonna tear my hair out trying to piece the plot together with the MGS series.

  • JazzWithAttitude

    wow i almost get a heart attack when i read “the xbox 360 version of Metal Gear Rising as cancelled”

  • z_merquise

    It’s good that more people can finally get to play it.

    As long as they fix the freezing glitch in the PS3 demo this time, much better.

    I played the demo included with Zone of the Enders HD Collection and I have to say, it’s a real blast to play!

  • fearlubu

    Got the ZoE collection, the demo wasn’t that great imo.

  • Nemesis_Dawn

    Loved the demo. This game is totally going to fill the void that Devil May Cry’s untimely demise left in that genre. Cannot wait for the full thing.
