Zone of the Enders HD Collection launches in the UK on 30th November 2012, Konami has announced.

For your cash you get HD updates of PlayStation 2 games Zone of the Enders and Zone of the Enders: The 2nd Runner. HD Collection launches on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.

You also get a demo of the Platinum-developed Kojima Productions-produced action game Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance. That game launches on PS3 and Xbox 360 on 22nd February 2013. The PS3 demo is on the Zone of the Enders disc. It's on a separate disc for the Xbox 360 version.

Meanwhile, Konami has announced the European Limited Edition of Revengeance. It comes with a 30cm figurine of cyborg ninja Raiden from the Play Arts KAI series (see image below). This, Konami said, will only be available via this limited release, with just 25,000 units released across Europe, where it costs 100 euro.

In the UK the Special Edition is a £100 Zavvi exclusive and includes a DLC code to access the White Armour Raiden in the game. White Armour Raiden can carry more life recovery items.
