Platinum Games has revealed its next game, 'Max Anarchy' in the latest issue of Japanese magazine, Famitsu, where there's a report on the game and an in-depth interview with Platinum's Atsushi Inaba. Apparently, the game is an online combat title that will support a high number of players, making this the first online title for the developer.
Max Anarchy will feature an offline story mode in addition to co-operative play and the game's main draw, which is free-for-all combat between numerous fighters online. It's a massive challenge for Platinum who is hard at work synchronising and balancing the game, but Inaba says that he has confidence in the gameplay.
Jack from Wii-only chainsaw-toting beat 'em up MadWorld will also feature in Max Anarchy, but this time he'll be rendered in full colour. Inaba explained that Platinum wanted to use the character again, and that Jack was a perfect fit for Max Anarchy, despite the fact he'll have nothing to do with the game's story.
Platinum is aiming for a fall 2011 release for Max Anarchy, which will be published by SEGA.
