Anarchy Reigns
Anarchy Reigns' Bayonetta Pre-Order Bonus Heading West With a JP Trailer

SEGA has confirmed that the previously Japan-only Bayonetta pre-order bonus for Anarchy Reigns will be heading to western shores, enabling players to use Bayonetta as a playable character in the game's frantic online multiplayer brawls.

Furthermore, it's been confirmed that the final version of Anarchy Reigns will feature no less than eleven multiplayer modes to get swept up in, including Deathmatch, Battle Royale, Death Ball and Survival. These modes will support 2, 4 or 8 players battling out at once, but the maximum number for all out melee combat will now see 16 fighters duking it out in the online arena.

Think about that one. 16 players all simultaneously punching the living crap out of one another? We went hands-on with Anarchy Reigns at Gamescom last year, and found that four players fighting was frenetic enough. 16 player mash ups ought to be interesting to say the least.

Check out the Japanese trailer below to see Bayonetta mixing it up in Anarchy Reigns, which is out on July 3rd in North America and July 6th in Europe.

Man... I read this and hoped it was a package deal, like Singularity coming with Prototype (both pretty bad console games, but still. Free's free). Still looks freakin sweet, though!

Singularity and Prototype were both great games.

And this means that I'll be pre-ordering this for sure.

@3 wait what? What do those games have to do with anything? Platinum games didn't make them. The same developer didnt even make both those, and sega didn't have anything to do with them.

This is awesome, I love Platinum Games. @1 Singularity and Prototype are solid games, not amazing but certainly not bad.

I'd still like to see Sam from Vanquish make a playable character appearance. Maybe he'll come in some future DLC? Bayonetta being in the game is pretty solid though.

Not only am I EXTREMELY excited about this, but this also means Platinum hasn't forgotten about Bayonetta. ;D BAYONETTA 2 PLEEEEEASE.

I was mildly interested in Anarchy Reigns before, but Bayonetta clinches it for me. Now Sega just needs to do Bayonetta 2 and put Bayonetta in the sequel to Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing

Is it just me, or does Max Anarchy sound a hell of a lot cooler than Anarchy Reigns? Damn you, Japan!
