The Xbox 360 version of Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance will not see a Japanese Xbox 360 release, Konami Japan has announced.

Citing “various reasons” as the culprit for the cancellation, the company apologised to fans while reiterating that a PlayStation 3 version would still be on the way.

Microsoft’s flagship console has always struggled in Japan, with sales of around 115,000 units last year. By contrast, Sony sold over 1,500,000 units of the PlayStation 3 during the same period.

There has been no word on whether or not this cancellation will affect other regions.
