It was supposed to be released this Wednesday but, earlier this week, we noticed that Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance was delayed in Australia until February 26, despite the fact it's set for release in the US today and in all other territories on the 21st. So what happened?
A spokesperson from Konami's local Australian distributor Mindscape informed us that a last minute delay was the root cause of the issue.
"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," read the statement. "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."
It's a short delay, so not a massive problem, but disappointing nonetheless.
