‘Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance’ is one of the highly-anticipated games of the year, and now there’s good news for all PlayStation 3-based “Metal Gear” fans. Per reports, Sony has revealed a new bundle for ‘Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance,’ which sports a specially designed console and a bunch of controllers.
Sony and Konami will now release a ‘Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance Zan Datsu Package’ PlayStation 3 hardware bundle in Japan on Feb. 21, 2013 for 31,960 yen.
The new package, per a Gematsu report, will include “a custom designed PlayStation 3 250GB 4000-series model and DualShock 3 controller, all necessary cables and cords, a copy of Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance, and a download code for a special custom theme. You’ll also get the previously announced Cyborg Ninja skin download code for Raiden (limited quantities).”
The Japanese special edition of the game was previously revealed in October when Konami announced two Japanese premium editions for its February-due ‘Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance.’
At that time, it was stated that the game’s premium package would be available for 9,980 yen and would include:
Konami has also announced retailer-specific pre-order bonuses for Japan. While Lawson and Konami Style pre-orders will include a download code for Raiden’s White Armor, Tsutaya pre-orders include a code for Raiden’s Inferno Armor. Moreover, Geo pre-orders will include the Command Armor.
A demo will also be released on the PSN on Dec. 13 and interested users will need a Japanese account to download that. It’s basically the same demo that was released with the ‘Zone of the Enders HD Collection.’
‘Metal Gear Rising’ is set four years after the events of ‘Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots,’ and the story will focus on agent Raiden who will encounter Desperado Enterprises, self proclaimed PMCs involved in terrorist activities.
‘Metal Gear Rising’ will hit the stores for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in Feb. 2013. In Japan, the game is a PS3-exclusive and won’t be released there for Microsoft’s console.
