We know it’s the oldest “joke” in the book, but we still remember when people purchased the original Zone of the Enders just to play the demo for Metal Gear Solid 2. As such, it’s funny that the visually re-mastered Zone of the Enders HD still can’t seem to escape from the shadow of Kojima Productions’ other more popular franchise.

Konami has announced that the upcoming overhauled compilation will ship alongside a demo for Raiden’s swashbuckling spin-off, Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance. It’s unclear how much of the Platinum developed action game players will get to sample, but the publisher promises it will offer a decent taste of the title’s “thrilling cut at will game mechanic”. So at least a couple of minutes, then.

Zone of the Enders HD is set to release on 30th October in North America. The Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance demo will release digitally at a later date. Keep that in mind if you’re planning on splashing out on a game you don’t really want just for a taster.
