The Xbox 360 release of Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance will go ahead as planned in Europe and the US despite word from Kojima Productions that this version has been cancelled in Japan.

Fears for the Western release of the Xbox 360 version were calmed when Konami Europe told MCV that the game remains on track to launch in February.

Given Xbox 360's poor install base in Japan it's no surprise to see Konami make the decision to focus its efforts on the PS3 version.
