Anarchy Reigns
Anarchy Reigns Punched Into 2012

View author's profile

Anarchy Reigns - or Max Anarchy, as it's known in Japan - has been pushed back into 2012, meaning that the wait for more of Platinum Games' unique insanity has been extended. In Japan only at least, as the delay hasn't been confirmed for territories outside the game's native region. For now...

It's unclear whether the delay will apply to other territories, but if the game has been delayed in Japan, in all likelihood, it's possible that the OTT multiplayer brawler is going to be delayed elsewhere too.

Anarchy Reigns had been on course for an autumn 2011 release, but is now set to launch in January 2012, according to the game's official website. Hopefully, official word should soon come from SEGA confirming whether the delay applies to territories other than Japan.

Yeah, you guys probably said that about Bayonetta and Vanquish as well, didn't you...However, this is probably good news with what is going on with Japan, I'm sure game designing hasn't been Platinum's top priority, so more development time is probably good.

@ 2,3,4 just go back to talking about your casual games...K?
This game is looking pretty decent imo, and im hoping to see Bayonetta as a guest character.

Didnt know LA Noire,Rage,Batman-AC were "casual" games. Also didnt know that this game screams that its hardcore and the the biggest BA game out there.

@6 Just.. Just stop slready you stuttering bk randy. Go troll elsewhere. Even those "A list only" games you just mentioned will inevetibly steal something from this platinum game like theyve done with all of mikami's games. Resident Evil 4 invented the over the shoulder 3rd person view games like Batman AA, Gears, and Socom use. And Bulletstorm, Crysis, Brink and many others have adapted Vanquish's slide shooting. If that isnt a compliment to its games and devs idk what is. Now go toss off :). :( on delay though. I want my awesome XBL smash brothers.

Well, with all the games coming out this can't be a bad thing. I can't think of one game I want to get in January other than this now, so that's fine with me:-)

With MadWorld being one of the greatest games that hardly anyone with a Wii bothered to buy, and this game essentially being its sequel, I'll definately pick it up! I just got psyched seeing that picture, which is the main character from MadWorld, Jack. Reason I'm psyched is MadWorld is entirely black and white (and red, lol) and now I see him in color! ha ha!

This is a must buy for me, don't mind the delay either.
Bayonetta and Vanquish are pretty awsome games, and this looks to hold it's own as well! :)

A Platinum Game??

I'll probably want to try out a demo first, but given P+ reputation, I have high hopes for this game.

The delay COULD only effect Japan, regardless of where it's developed. I mean, look at No More Heroes 2.

So you never know. I approve of anything P+ related, so I'm looking forward to this game.
