Konami offers up a slice of gameplay in the Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance demo.


Konami has announced that the demo for Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance, starring Metal Gear Solid’s Raiden, is now available on the PlayStation Network and Xbox LIVE. The demo showcases Chapter 1 of the upcoming action game, and introduces Raiden as the protagonist. It’s unclear if this is the same demo that was available to those who purchased the Zone of the Enders HD Collection, or something entirely new.
