Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance Cancelled for Xbox 360 in Japan
Time to get angry Xbox 360 faithfuls. Konami have announced Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance has been cancelled in Japan.
For “various reasons” unexplained in further detail, Konami have issued a statement on the Konami Japan product page making fans aware Xbox 360 console owners living in the land of the Rising sun won’t get getting any form of Metal Gear Rising on the Microsoft branded hardware.
Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance will be exclusively available for the PlayStation 3 in Japan. As strange as this turn of events is, it’s hardly surprising given how much the Xbox 360 in Japan has struggled to get a following over there.
The worldwide launch of Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance will still go forward on PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC as planned so if you pick up a copy of Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance for Xbox 360 in early 2013, spare a thought for the unfortunate Japanese Xbox 360 console owners missing out.
