January is usually a depressing month (IMO), with the excitement of Christmas well and truly over, finances tight, and weather (depending on where you live obviously!) horrible. One thing that usually keeps us going through the worst month of the year however, is playing the new games we received for Christmas – with a few new releases and other treats lined up.
Lucky for us this year, Konami is treating all PS3 and Xbox 360 owners to a demo of their upcoming title – Metal Gear Rising. Some people have already tried out the 3.5gb demo, as it was included as a promotion for purchasers of the Zone of the Enders HD collection. Everyone else will be able to give it a go next month – even those guys who have received a new console for Christmas, as long as it isn’t a Wii U obviously…
The game will be released in North America on February 19th and in Europe 2 days later. So officially, this is your chance to see whether you should hold back some of that Christmas money. And as far as the game, it looks to be a perfect blend of traditional Metal Gear story and all-action gameplay.
