Following news of an international release date yesterday, Konami's Australian distributor has confirmed that Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance will be released in Australia and New Zealand on February 21, 2013, for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
"In the near future, cyborg technology has become commonplace throughout society. Several
years have passed since the collapse of the Patriots system that had been secretly controlling the
global power balance. Unfortunately, the dissemination of cybernetic technology has triggered
instability and conflict, with those who control the war trade exerting their power over the weak.
Furthermore, large ‘Private Military Companies’ (PMCs) that had been supported and controlled
by the Patriots have collapsed, spawning countless rogue entities with links to larger criminal
organisations," says the official description.
We had a chance to go hands-on with Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance yesterday, so keep an eye out for our preview.
