Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance is a vast departure from when the game was known as Metal Gear Solid: Rising, but this Raiden-centric game still looks like it will be fun. The action game was slated to launch in 2012 and then early 2013, but now Konami has nailed the exact date for Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance as February 19, 2013, in North America and February 21, 2013, in Europe. This should be welcome news to Metal Gear fans eager to try out Platinum Games' take on the series, although the action shown so far is pretty over the top. Cybernetic ninja Raiden is now just one of many cyborgs in the Metal Gear world, but he will rely more on swordplay than stealth throughout the story. Gamers eager to check out Revengeance before the February release will be able to play the demo in the upcoming Zone of the Enders HD Collection, which will arrive later this year.
