Given events of recent months, there was the underlying question of if Sega would release Anarchy Reigns outside of Japan. Sega of America and Sega of Europe have recently announced that their multiplayer brawler Anarchy Reigns will launch internationally during January 2013, with a 10th January 2013 release in Australia for the Playstation 3 and XBox360 video game consoles. The Australian distribution will be handled by the company Five Star Games, who are handling the distribution of many Sega titles in lieu of Sega Australia.
Developed by the talented team from the critically-acclaimed studio, PlatinumGames, Anarchy Reigns delivers over-the-top close combat, set in a massively open and fantastical world in a bleak, mutant-filled future. Watch iconic characters from the PlatinumGames stable duking it out in a series of vibrant arenas that could only have been thought up by Japan’s critically acclaimed studio. Up to 16 players can take part in multiplayer matches over a variety of game modes; engage in all-out Battle Royale destruction, co-operate with your friends and vanquish hordes of monsters in Survival mode or test your sportsmanship over a few rounds of Deathball! With an SRP of $49.95, Anarchy Reigns is a high quality game, selling at a fantastic price.

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

Focusing on online play with Anarchy Reigns presented a new challenge for us here at PlatinumGames. 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!
