Metal Gear Rising Revengeance delayed in Australia

But only by five days

Metal Gear Rising Revengeance was originally set for release this Thursday (February 21), but has now been pushed back to February 26 in Australia.


Metal Gear Rising Revengeance will be out in the US on February 19 and all other territories on February 22.

Earlier this week Kotaku spotted the release date for Australia was pushed back until February 26. A spokesperson from Mindscape, Konami's Australian distributor, made the following statement:

"Unfortunately due to a last minute shipping delay, the Australian and New Zealand release of Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance will be delayed by a few days to the 26th of February. As gamers ourselves, we're committed to ensuring that Australian release dates align with global launches and we're working hard to ensure that this problem doesn't occur in the future."
