Sega has finally announced the release date of its multiplayer brawler Anarchy Reigns, confirming the game will release 11th January 2013 across Europe on PS3 and Xbox 360 having already released back in July 2012 in the developer’s native Japan.
‘Focusing on online play with Anarchy Reigns presented a new challenge for us here at Platinum Games,’ added Atsushi Inaba, Executive Director/Producer at Platinum Games. ‘Very few games fall under its genre of a melee-based online multiplayer brawler, so I think we’ve been able to supply a new kind of excitement that you can’t find anywhere else. While some time has passed since its Japan release, I look forward to having gamers in North American and Europe enjoy the anarchy!’
Anarchy Reigns is all about over-the-top close combat, set in a massively open world in a bleak, mutant-filled future. Up to 16 players can take part in multiplayer matches over a variety of game modes – Battle Royale destruction, Survival mode and Deathball – as iconic characters from the Platinum Games stable do battle.
