The two new Metal Gear Rising
announcements are for Japan only, accessible at different levels of difficulty for fans outside. The easiest to acquire is the demo
, which will be available on the Japanese PlayStation Store on December 13 for those who don't already have it from the Zone of the Enders HD Collection
. Getting that is as simple as creating a Japanese PSN account, or waiting for the inevitable western release.
The special edition Metal Gear Rising PS3
will be a bit harder to get your hands on. The 250GB system, with a special controller, copy of the game, and a few exclusive downloads, will retail in Japan for ¥31,960 ($390), but it'll likely more to import one.
It's easiest of all to watch the new Japanese trailer, featuring lots of ninja technique demonstrations. It's embedded after the break.
