Metal Gear Rising demo downloadable in the West next month

Metal Gear Rising demo on XBL, PSN next month
A demo for Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance will be released in January on Xbox Live and PSN, Konami announced today. The demo was previously (and currently) included with Zone of the Enders HD Collection, so if you absolutely can't wait to cut everything using precisely lined up slashes, you can go pick that up.

What you can't do is just download the demo from the Japanese PlayStation Network. We tried that, only to discover that – for the first time in our experience – the demo is region-locked.
