Even With A New GOG Release, Metal Gear Rising Revengeance Remains Unavailable In Southeast Asia

GOG announced that a DRM-free version of Metal Gear Rising Revengeance is now available. The 2013 character action game by PlatiumGames and Kojima Productions has been celebrated for its hype action scenes and memeability, yet even 10 years since release the game is region-locked and not sold in Southeast Asia.

Metal Gear Rising Revengeance is also available on Steam, but remains unavailable for people in Southeast Asia as well as a few other countries in Asia. Even people in Japan, where the series originated from, can’t buy this game on Steam.

Publisher Konami were looking into this issue, in a tweet by then-creative producer at PlatinumGames, J.P. Kellams. That was 10 years ago. (Unlike Senator Armstrong, we didn’t make up the source.)

Players from the region-locked regions can still play Metal Gear Rising legally by getting a disc for the PS3 or Xbox 360 releases.

It’s a shame that with this GOG release, Konami remains unwilling to sell this game on PC in more markets without specifying any good reason why.

The GOG release Metal Gear Rising Revengeance is DRM-free.
