SEGA “Reigns” in the New Year with Anarchy Reigns
SEGA has been fairly quiet lately with its mutant-laden fighter, Anarchy Reigns, but luckily for brawler fans, the game is still coming and its release date has been officially unveiled.
Anarcy Reigns, developed by PlatinumGames (Bayonetta, Vanquish), is an online multiplayer brawl fest that features multiple game modes for up to 16 players.
With an MSRP of $29.99, the game won’t cost an arm, leg or any robotic, bladed limb either. And that’s always good news.
From the press release:
“SEGA is hugely proud of the work PlatinumGames has put in to creating a videogame
with such a unique and engaging vision” said Jurgen Post, COO of SEGA Europe
Ltd. “Gamers will soon be able to experience the full adrenaline rush that comes
from competing in explosive multiplayer matches of Anarchy Reigns.”
“Focusing on online play with Anarchy Reigns presented a new challenge for us here
at PlatinumGames,” said Atsushi Inaba, Executive Director/Producer at Platinum
Games. “Very few games fall under its genre of a melee-based online multiplayer
brawler, so I think we’ve been able to supply a new kind of excitement that you
can’t find anywhere else. While some time has passed since its Japan release, I look
forward to having gamers in North America and Europe enjoy the Anarchy!”
Anarchy Reigns will launch on Jan. 8, 2013 for the PlayStation 3, and Jan. 11, 2013 for the Xbox 360.
