Konami Style, the official Japanese e-shop for video game producer Konami, is accepting pre-orders for a number of limited-edition Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance packages, including an exclusive PlayStation 3 console.

The Metal Gear Rising Revengeance Zandatsu Package includes the custom-skin PS3 with 250GB hard drive, one custom-skin Dual Shock 3 controller, the standard power/AV/USB cables, a copy of the game, a custom PlayStation 3 theme download, and a download code for the "Cyborg Ninja" character skin.

The console package retails for 31,960 yen (about US$389) and will be available February 21, 2013.

The store also put together the "Metal Gear Rising Revengeance Premium Package Konami Style Special Edition." For 12,980 yen (US$158), the package includes the game itself, the soundtrack in an exclusive steel book case, an art book featuring the work of Yoji Shinkawa, two magnetic Kogekkō figurines, and a limited edition White Armor Version Raiden figure by PlayArts. A similar package without the Raiden figure retails for 9,980 yen (US$121). Both are also available on February 21.

Metal Gear Rising Revengeance stars Metal Gear Solid 2 protagonist Raiden, a cyborg ninja. The game's official website outlines the story as:

Raiden is contracted for VIP protection, military training and other duties by PMSCs (Private Military and Security Companies) in a developing country piecing itself back together after a bloody civil war. Little does he know that the stage is set for a clash with an enigmatic force of countless cyborgs.

Reborn at the hands of PlatinumGames, Metal Gear Rising Revengeance pits cyborg against cyborg in battle that blazes past every human limit!

Kojima Productions (the company overseen by Metal Gear Solid creator Hideo Kojima) is responsible for the scenario and setting supervision of the game, while Platinum Games (Bayonetta) is handling its development. Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance will be released on the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 consoles in North America on February 19, 2013. The Japanese release will be for the PlayStation 3 console only.
