Sega announced Max Anarchy for North America and Europe under a slightly different name. Introducing Anarchy Reigns, a multiplayer brawler for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.


Anarchy Reigns has a single player story mode, but the feature Sega is touting is online play. In Battle Royale, it’s every man and woman for themselves. Players can also pick tag team matches and other multiplayer modes, which Sega isn’t discussing today.


PlatinumGames snuck Jack from Madworld as a cameo into the game. Look for him and Anarchy Reigns this fall when Sega releases the game.

  • There’s something I really like about the first picture…can’t…quite…put…my…finger…on…it…

  • I saw Anarchy;
    I immediately thought there was going to be a Panty & Stocking with Garterbelt game.
    Then, I continued reading.

    Hyuuu. That ass is shot is amazing. If I ever play this it’s not gonna be as a dude on roids.

    • ThunderGod_Cid

      I agree…..Dat ass is immaculate.

    Oh Sega you and your Japanese metrosexual bishounen skinny characters!

    • SeventhEvening

      Are we looking at the same screenshots? There’s a woman with huge breasts, a dozen men in hockey masks, Jack (who has arms like treetrunks), and what appears to be some kind of cyber ninja thing. I don’t see anything remotely metrosexual and bishounen.

        And I don’t see your sarcasm detector on!

    • GamerKT

      That’s Square Enix.

      Now, see, I thought the blonde was a woman just by the backside. Then I saw the front in the screenshot and went ‘Raiden and Snake’s lovechild…?’. But maybe something is just wrong with me. (You can see the side of her bust from the back, but that jut disappeared entirely in the front.)

  • DDanny

    From the first picture, it looks like Bayonetta’s model is still of use.
    I demand a cameo >.>

  • SeventhEvening

    I’d like to point out that “snuck Jack from Madworld as a cameo into the game” is a massive understatement. He’s in every screen shot I’ve seen from the game.

  • Visually, I liked the teaser, but musically…my god, I certainly hope it supports custom soundtracks on PS3.

  • Volcynika

    D’oh, sorry for the double comment. Silly phone.

  • Volcynika

    Sounds like it could have a soundtrack that is as great or better than Madworld’s. Good stuff.

    • That’s what Madworld’s soundtrack was like? Geez, maybe it’s a good thing PS3 didn’t get it then. But, as I said, for people who like it, I guess that’s good for them. For people like me, who thought it was awful, I can only pray this has a custom soundtrack option.

  • PrinceHeir

    i was hoping they were using the black and white scheme again.

    oh well it’s all good :P

  • Zal_Yagun

    Putting way too much hope to ask if Gene gonna be Ball busting in this game

    • puchinri

      That would be amazing.

  • Code

    rar, still gotta see more, but this is already in high standing in my books, what with it being Platinum and a beat`em up on top of that >ww<~! Even though I figure the rights to him and God Hand are massively torn between Capcom and Platinum omo;

  • Icon

    Don’t know why, but I prefer Max Anarchy to Anarchy Reigns.

  • Scallion

    I saw giant katana dudes being sliced up by giant chainsaws and bloodsplosions, and I have no idea what’s going on in any of those shots.
    …if they want me to be objective, they need to stop putting awesome crap in their screenshots all the time.

    • Scallion

      Oh my god, that’s an ass.
      I thought that was like…a robot or something.
      Oh my god.
