More Anarchy Reigns Screenshots Pour Out Of Platinum Games

By Spencer . January 28, 2011 . 1:08am


Anarchy Reigns (aka Max Anarchy) is on track for a fall release worldwide. The Japanese announcement came with a few more screenshots showcasing Jack from Madworld and a tentacle overrun city (?).


Producer Atsushi Inaba mentions Anarchy Reigns is the first online title from Platinum Games. So far, two online modes have been announced – battle royal and tag team with more to be revealed. While most of the screenshots show Jack, Anarchy Reigns has other playable characters, each with their own abilities.

  • It’s like Madworld in colour (no surprise there considering who the developer is). If this has the fun of the late 80’s and early to mid 90s beat ’em ups with some destructive fun (many weapons to use, destructable environments) and some in-depth content, this could be a reminder of the glory days of the beat ’em ups :D

      I really love 2D arcade beat-em ups (mostly developed by Capcom) and I do hope that this game would carry the spirit of the genre like God Hand did. Madworld comes close but sadly, as much as I love Madworld’s art style, settings and presentation, the combat really needs polish. I hope Platinum learn from that mistake and make it better in this game.

      you know what i would want?

      a God Hand Style gameplay(hopefully it’s similar here) cannot wait for my copy next week :)

      bullestorm really look like a madworld in color

  • z_merquise

    This looked very interesting. Though I’m a bit worried since I’m not fond of MMO (Massive Multiplayer Online) games and according in the translated interview, that seems to be the focus of the game (though I’m not 100% sure about it).

    Still, I’m looking forward for this since Platinum Games is one of my favorite game developers.

    Got me thinking. Could Jack Cayman be the unoffical mascot of Platinum Games? Could we see Sam Gideon (Vanquish) make a cameo too or any other characters from PlatGames for that matter? Dark and Gritty and no doubt will have that PlatGames polish. My 2011 calender is looking sweet!

  • Dude, JACK! YESH!

  • Code

    rar I’m really hoping they push the world design and have lots of unique characters, lots of potential >w<

    If this games Combat system has as much depth as God Hand i think ill shout DIE really loud and godstomp the floor in Joy

    Regardless its a day 1 purchase for me platinum games just have this speacil Flavour i cant resist.
