It looks like my personal favorite game of the year so far, Metal Gear Rising Revengeance, is coming to PC.

Via Joystiq:

Series creator Hideo Kojima announced Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance is coming to the PC. Speaking on his HideRadio podcast, Kojima revealed the upcoming port. The news was then confirmed by Platinum Games creative producer Jean Pierre Kellams.

In itself, this isn’t terribly amazing news. Revengeance did alright in terms of sales, but it’s hard to argue whether or not a Steam version of the game will reach a new audience that the console versions failed to tap into. Financially, this may just be about Platinum Games getting the most out of its development dollars.

On the other hand, porting the game to PC means 1080p visuals, plus whatever goodies modders will come up with. Revengeance is open ended in the way you cut apart your opponents, but when you start including possibilities like custom skins and levels and upgraded enemies and whatever silliness people with too much time on their hands can cook up, fans will likely be able to squeeze quite a bit more enjoyment out of the experience.
