Anarchy Reigns, Platinum Games’ multiplayer brawler, has been confirmed for a western release by publisher Sega. The game will release on January 8, 2013 in the United States and January 11, 2013 in Europe on both the Xbox 360 and PS3 and will retail for $29.99/£19.99/€29.99.
The game launched in Japan in July of this year, but a western release was delayed by Sega several times, which was unexpected considering the fact that the game was completely localised. Reasons for the delays are still unclear, but the most likely explanations is that they were simply unhappy with the current ones from a promotional standpoint.
Anarch Reigns features several cameos from other Platinum Games, including Jack Cayman from Mad World, and Bayonetta from.. Bayonetta as a downloadable character. Critical receptions were mostly positive, with Gamespot giving it a 7 out of 10, Eurogamer giving it a 9/10, nothing but 9’s from Famitsu, a 6 from EDGE. We look forward to playing the game ourselves.
