Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance is like no Metal Gear game before it, but check out this new trailer and the upcoming demo, and you may just find yourself looking at that as a good thing.

Konami has announced a demo will arrive on both PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 on January 22, according to Gamespot.

A new trailer accompanied the announcement; check it out below.

The demo takes place in the first chapter; it’s not clear if this refers to the prologue section, in which Raiden appears in his Metal Gear Solid 4 guise, or after he’s switched up into a new cyborg body designed by Platinum Games.

It’s also not apparent whether this is the same taster available bundled with the Zone of the Enders HD Collection, which toured extensively at press and consumer events last year.

Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance is due on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 on February 19 in the US, February 21 in Australia and February 22 in Europe. It’s pretty fucking good.
