The playable demo nears for Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance. On January 22nd in North America and the 23rd in Europe, the Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance demo be available for PlayStation Network and Xbox LIVE Marketplace.
The official gameplay video released by Konami is shown at the bottom of the article.
The demo will have three stages with Raiden as the centralized character. Following the events of Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots, this game will show off Raiden's new cyborg body and all of his new abilities.
Pre-orders at Gamestop for Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance will receive the Cyborg Ninja skin and the Fox Blade. Additionally, an artbook was announced for pre-orders. This artbook is 24 pages and features the art of Yoji Shinkawa.
As Kotaku states in an article in August, "Metal Gear Ain't Metal Gear Without Yoji Shinkawa's Iconic Art."
Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance will be available February 19th, 2013 in North America. The Limited Edition will include a plasma lamp, steelbook collector's case, and the official soundtrack in addition to the game.
In general, do you play demos before the release of a game? Or, do you think demos could ruin your opinion of a game prior to its release?
