Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance coming 'soon' to PC

Konami confirmed Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance is on its way to Windows PCs in the west, and said it's releasing the Platinum Games slicer through digital distribution networks "soon." We're still waiting on further details, but Konami noted Revengeance runs at 60 frames per second on "most modern PCs."

The port was first announced by series creator Hideo Kojima on his radio podcast last month. At the time, Platinum Games creative director Jean-Pierre Kellams immediately asked fans to direct their queries about the port to Konami. That either suggests Platinum isn't involved with the port or that a lack of tolerance for questions isn't limited to a certain founder of the company. We've reached out to Konami to find out which it is.
