Platinum Games’ online brawler Anarchy Reigns was released in Japan early this year on July 5, with a planned simultaneous release in North America and Europe. However, Sega had since changed its position, stating that the release date for these regions was “to be confirmed” back in May.
Well, fans looking forward to getting their hands on the innovative beat-em-up needn’t wait much longer.
Sega has finally put down a set of definitive release dates for the game in the West. Anarchy Reigns will be released on January 8, 2013 in North America and January 11, 2013 in Europe on both the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. Due to Sega’s shift in focus of its business model in the States and in Europe to focus on core IPs, it remains to be seen if these dates won’t be pushed back further.
Anarchy Reigns features a story-driven Campaign mode featuring characters from MadWorld, as well as an action-packed competitive multiplayer mode set in an open world.
