Komani and Platinum Games have released a new trailer for Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance, which you can ogle over below. The name of the video is “Jack the Ripper.” It's fitting considering Jack (Raiden) does a lot of ripping things to pieces. See what I did there? Also, does anyone else find it weird that he drives a car? Shouldn't he have roller skates built into that super high-tech armor he's rollin' with? These are the important, hard-hitting questions that need answers!

Additionally, Konami has announced that a demo for Metal Gear Rising is soon to follow. Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 players will be able to snag the demo off their respective marketplaces on January 22. The demo offers up the first chapter of the game, which introduces Raiden (obviously). Seriously, that’s all the press release says. This demo was previously available to purchasers of the Zone of the Enders HD Collection. So if you bought the ZotE Collection, ignore this public service announcement.

Now on to the trailer:

Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance launches February 19, 2013 for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
