Konami has revealed that a playable demo of Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance will be hitting North America and Europe early next year.
The playable teaser will be released for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 and will be up for grabs in January 2013.
Weighing in at 3.5GB, the demo was previously made available as part of the Zone of the Enders HD Collection.
Metal Gear Rising takes place a few years after Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots, and sees ninja Raiden slicing up mechs and soldiers in a Bayonetta-esque actioner full of dazzling set-pieces and fast-paced combat.
The game will be unleashed in stores in February.
