Metal Gear Rising Revengeance launches early 2013, Konami has announced.

During a pre-recorded pre-E3 press conference, Konami played a new trailer for the Platinum Games created action spin-off, showing katana-wielding cyborg ninja Raiden facing off against soldiers and mechs.

Raiden is also shown in ninja mode, which allows him to run faster and jump farther as he dashes around the environment.

A demo for Metal Gear Rising will be included in the upcoming Zone of the Enders HD release, then later released on PlayStation Network and Xbox Live.
