Anarchy Reigns
Bayonetta Offered Up as Anarchy Reigns Pre-Order in Japan

While we’re yet to hear any official word on a Bayonetta sequel, we do know where the game’s eponymous heroine will appear next.

According to Famitsu, Bayonetta herself will be available as a playable character in the Japanese release of Platinum Games’ upcoming brawler, Anarchy reigns. For those that pre-order, that is.

Continuing Platinum Games’ recent run of insanely over-the-top action titles (see Bayonetta and Vanquish), Anarchy Reigns features an insane-sounding multiplayer mode in which up to eight players can go at each other. We reckon having Bayonetta on your side might be pretty handy.

Of course, Anarchy Reigns isn’t the only game Platinum are currently beavering away on. There’s also the small matter of Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance, the project that Platinum took control of when Hideo Kojima had a bit of a creative wobble. On the studio's run of from, you wouldn’t bet against them making another corker.

Of course, all of this is getting away from the issue: Bayonetta will be a pre-order bonus in Japan for Anarchy Reigns. Can we expect to see a similar deal in North America and Europe? Fingers crossed.

I cannot wait for this game,
It's looking fantastic!
And Bayonetta would be a brilliant inclusion in it if she comes to Europe/N.A.

Though their other project, Revengeance, still have the stupidest name of the year so far.

Yeah I thought it was the game rather than just a DLC character.

I'm glad I am not the only person who read the title and thought they were giving away the game. I was like "I'M DOWN WITH THAT". Let down.

Having said that, that's cool. It'll be generiDLC down the line anyway, I assume.

This reminds me I need to beat Mad World.

@ #4 - You're sick of getting frees stuff for games you're going to buy anyway? That really doesn't make any sense to me...

@11: It's more like 3D super smash brothers type of fighter, featuring a bunch of over-the-top characters that were created just for this game meshed with some classic Platinum characters from games like Mad World.

Reading this makes me remember I still have Bayonetta on my shelf, sealed and unplayed for over 2 years. Perhaps it is time I gave it a go!

That's a reason to buy the game (even though not many people are liking it). It will probably come to the U.S. They're probably going to make us pay for it, too.
