Metal Gear Rising Dated, Coming February 2013

Konami has just released a new trailer for Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance which reveals the game’s official release date. The game will arrive in stores in North America on February 19th, the 21st in Europe and one day later in the UK.

Series creator Hideo Kojima made the announcement on Twitter as well.

The game is being developed by Platinum Games, the studio behind the super fast action title Bayonetta. It’s clear that the team is taking a lot from their prior games, as Revengeance bears that same level of adrenaline-filled high speed action.

We loved what we saw of the game back at E3, and you can read about our hands-on time with the game right here at our preview. While it certainly breaks away from the traditional Metal Gear formula, Platinum Games’ latest looks to serve up one heck of a fun experience.
