Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance might not be out until February 19, 2013, but you'll be able to try the game for yourself as early as next week when a demo is released for PlayStation Network and Xbox Live on January 22. The demo features the same playable content that was included as a bonus in the Zone of the Enders HD Collection, so it's nothing that hasn't been out there already.
Joining the news of the demo's release date is a new seven-minute trailer that highlights some of the game's slice-tastic action. Watch as Raiden effortlessly flays a squad of robocops and a pair of mechs that look like they could have come from the Enders series. As it turns out, it doesn't matter if you're made of meat or metal; Raiden's sword can still slice you to little bits.
