Anarchy Reigns Attacks Western Store Shelves Early Next Year

At last

That ear shattering roar you just heard was editor Damien McFerran celebrating the long overdue release date announcement for “groundbreaking multiplayer brawler” Anarchy Reigns. SEGA's just sent us word that the title will launch on 8th January in North America and 11th January in Europe.

The Platinum Games developed fighter sparked controversy earlier this year when it was delayed overseas, despite development being fully completed. The game eventually released to a muted reception in Japan, but has taken an eternity to arrive on Western shores. When it finally does hit next year, it will cost just £19.99/$29.99.

“SEGA are hugely proud of the work Platinum Games has put in to creating a video game with such a unique and engaging vision” said SEGA's Jurgen Post. “Gamers will soon be able to experience the full adrenaline rush that comes from competing in the explosive multiplayer matches of Anarchy Reigns.”

Are you still interested in playing Anarchy Reigns, or has the delay put you off? Let us know in the comments section below.

Since Nintendo and platinum are working together I bet this will come to WiiU

@HarmoKnight Possible — but considering how poorly it sold in Japan, it might not be worth it. I'd imagine it would have to do extremely well overseas to make any port worthwhile.

I'm pumped — I've been looking forward to this since it was announced and was really bummed out when it was delayed seemingly indefinitely. And the price, well, that's pretty great too.

Although I do wonder why they don't go the Tokyo Jungle route and do all-digital for even cheaper. Seems like it would reduce some risk?

I never thought this would see the light of day in the west, and I'm surprised they've went ahead with releasing it. But what's with the £20 price tag? Do they know it's going to bomb, so they're trying to get as many cheap and easy sales as possible?
