BAYONETTA PLAYABLE IN ANARCHY REIGNS!
LONDON & SAN FRANCISCO – March 22nd 2012 – SEGA Japan and PlatinumGames today announced the Japanese pre-order campaign for ANARCHY REIGNS. Japanese players who pre-order the game will be able to play with the famous Bayonetta character in the online multiplayer modes of ANARCHY REIGNS. This announcement is dedicated to the Japanese market only but we can now confirm that the Bayonetta character will also be included in the Western version of the game. Please wait for more information from your local SEGA office or distributor to announce plans for ANARCHY REIGNS in your territory during the coming weeks.
In the meantime, as everyone loves to watch Bayonetta in action, here is a link to the video released this morning in Japan involving the famous witch: http://youtu.be/EeO1n7fL_zE.
In additions to this, we’re also announcing two new great features of ANARCHY REIGNS:
– Added to the campaign mode in which you will be able to play Jack and Leo’s stories, the game has many multiplayer modes. Four of them have already been revealed (Deathmatch, Battle Royale, Survival and Death Ball) and we can now announce that in total there are no less than 11 very different multiplayer modes available in ANARCHY REIGNS!
– As usual with PlatinumGames, a new threshold is crossed when they move into a new genre and this is the time for online multiplayer brawlers to take a step forward. Depending on the players mode you don’t only have 2, 4 or 8 players fighting each-other online, no way, you will have to up to 16 (that’s sixteen!) players confronting one another at any one time. So be ready for a new scale in the Melee Combat!
ANARCHY REIGNS will be available July 3rd 2012 for PlayStation®3 and Xbox 360™ in the USA and July 6th in the European territories.
