Metal Gear Rising Cancelled for 360 in Japan

Konami has announced that is has no plans to release Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance for the Xbox 360 in Japan. Konami is following suit of many developers and publishers that have opted to skip releasing games for the Xbox 360 in Japan.

No specific reasons were given for the cancellation of the product in Japan but it does not have an effect on the release of the game in the west.

The game will still release for the PlayStation 3 in Japan on February 21. It will be interesting to see if Konami gives a specific reason for this version of the game not being released.
