Konami has revealed Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance will not be released on the Xbox 360 in Japan.
The Platinum Games developed Lightning Bolt Action spin-off will be exclusive to PS3 in Japan, the publisher has confirmed.
Konami has apologised for its decision. It said the cancellation was due to "various reasons" but did not clarify further.
Kojima Productions producer Yuji Korekado has indicated that Metal Gear Rising for PC isn't out of the question, though the studio is focusing on the console versions first.
