Anarchy Reigns
Anarchy Reigns Confirmed for January 2013 Western Launch

Having been subjected to a last-minute delay by SEGA that made developer Platinum Games rather unhappy, Anarchy Reigns has finally been given a proper release date for western audiences. We previewed it back at E3 in 2011.

The crazed multiplayer brawler launched in Japan back in July, and despite being fully localised and ready to go, SEGA decided to hold Anarchy Reigns back, even though it owuld have launched amid the relatively quiet summer period.

Now Anarchy Reigns will be heading west in January 2013, with the game scheduled for launch in North America on January 8th, 2013 before arriving in Europe on January 11th, 2013. It'll be priced at the lower RRP of £19.99/€29.99/$29.99, which is good, right?

Played this back in July, and honestly I didn't get into it. Guess it just wasn't my type of game. Nice to see a price reduction though.

I was already wondering what happend to Anarchy Reigns, as it was posted on most gamestores ages ago then all we heared was its been delayed then it went silent, but glad its up and running altho to be honest i not get the point why they didn,t release it in the summer with almost no other game being released and having a good chance to get gamers buying it while now mabye other games come out around same time, and for alot of gamers the pricedrop sometimes means the game isn,t that good. But then again i can imagine an action brawler set on-line isn,t anyones cup of tea ofcourse.

I played this back in July as well and it was really fun. Hard was a bitch and I never completed the achievements for it but I got all the others. Would definitely recommend it at that price.

I hate strictly MP only games like this or L4D. I don't mind playing a game that has MP, but it needs to have a good SP story as well to get my money.

Nice. Had this reserved on Amazon since I saw it was $40 there, cancelled my GameStop pre-order. Guess I could've kept it there but that's okay. Looking forward to this.

@15 What are you talking about? This has two separate campaigns. Hardly a multiplayer only game.

SA2 must have made Sega enough money that they were able to buy some fucking blank discs.

Can't wait for this.

@17 - A proper campaign, or one like Brink, where they just replaced the other players with bots?

@22 It's like Brink in the sense you play the other side in the same areas with slightly different missions. There is a slight open world/free roam aspect to it as well. You might have 1 or 2 partners in a mission but usually you're by yourself and you're always by yourself in the free roam part.

It's a proper campaign with different missions, and with a bit of free roam.

For me I'm glad that i'm gonna gamefly it since it kinda seems like the $30 price tag makes me question the quality of this game not that i don't want it to be good, i'm just on the fence about it

@31 it got good ratings in Japan. The only reason it's cheap is because it's been out for months in Japan.

I assure you if it's made by Platinum it's a GREAT game.
