Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance delayed in AU/NZ

Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance is out today in the U.S., hitting the rest of the world with a bang on the 21st, but it's been mysteriously delayed until the 26th for Australians. That's a whole week's wait, and nothing's really been said about quite why Raiden and pals weren't able to make it here in time.

Happily though, Mindscape, the local distributor for Konami titles including Revengeance, has all the answers.

Kotaku Australia asked, simply, "So what happened?" - and Mindscape replied.

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.

Realistically speaking, particularly for this part of the world, a one-week delay is merely a hiccup in the fabric of time, and not really enough to get worked up about - even for something as eagerly anticpated as Revengeance. But, again, we are penalised for living in this beautiful part of the world. Boo.
