PlatinumGames have put up a 10-minute video of their staff members playing a team-based multiplayer game of Anarchy Reigns, with various characters in play. Some of the footage shows off interesting interaction between the characters, such as Jack riding Garuda like a skateboard. Take a look at the match below:

  • Hmm, it honestly looks pretty damn good. Dat music is ballin’ too.

    Nice to see that the multiplayer is a lot more “controlled” than I thought it would be. Thought it would be endless chaos with crazy combos in every direction lol.

  • ArcadiaSymphonia

    Take my money take it all if i was interested in the game before im yours signed sealed delivered!

  • MrKappa

     LOL, was that Rick Ross rapping? I always get a kick out of hip hop or rap in Japanese games for some reason.

    But this video was just what I needed, gonna go preorder this the next time I hit the store. The game looked fun as hell, too bad there is no split screen though. :/

  • Kitestwinblades

    Its like an all out God Hand battle! 
    Only faster(movement wise) and some pretty nifty weapons XD

  • aoihana

    Whoa! I didn’t know about this game, but it looks real awesome! It looks pretty open, and I love how you can use your surroundings to your advantage. Gameplay looks nice and smooth. (◕‿◕✿)

    Throwing cars and tires?! (」゜ロ゜)」ノ●

    Awesome! (>y<)  

    On a side note, I thought it was a bit odd that they were wearing headsets sitting across from each other. Though, I guess it makes sense since there wouldn’t be clear communication with everyone talking. (*^ワ^*)

    • Code

      Bayonetta is a playable character Aoihana >3<~!

      • aoihana

        Good job, you just sold me! ヾ(@^▽^@)ノ 

        • Code

          Doesn’t that just make your day, haha >w<~ Maybe we'll have a few people from Siliconera to play with o3o~ Since I don't think I'll have any local friends picking it up sadly o~o;

      • HeatPhoenix

        Sam Gideon and you’ve sold me a copy. Hard.

  • ShawnOtakuSomething

    omg this looks awesome whos that blue guy with the drills  *gasp* Simon?!

  • Is that Lotus Juice I hear mid 9min mark?!?! :D
    I hadn’t given this game much thought until a friend brought it up yesterday… SO glad I still have time to pre-order it haha.

  • Team Death Match. Finally, the mode I was waiting for.

  • jugun

    So much money to take 

  • puchinri

    FFFF. Oh, goodness Airin. I can tell you and I are going to get really close, really fast. 

    Really though, all of the characters look like a lot of fun in one way or another, and that’s great. Totes diggin that music too.

    I’m really excited about this game. I guess I need to go make sure I have it pre-ordered. >u< ♥

  • Code

    Movement is still a little chunky looking o3o; But I think there’s more then enough interesting qualities/good things that I’m definitely sold. I like the way @Kitestwinblades:disqus put it >ww<~

    Watching I've seen some nice mechanics, blocking, canceling, teching, counters, and even what looks like command throws o3o~ So it looks like it'll have some depth to sink your teeth into owo;

  • If this game were a woman… it’d be a very beautiful woman.

  • Guest

    Is it odd that mostly the multiplayer made me so excited about this game in the first place?

    • raymk

      Um the multiplayer modes is the biggest draw of the game.  Its like being sad that your playing smash for the mutiplayer mode or any fighter for that matter its the main draw.

  • This looks pretty sick.

  • Nitraion

    Damn I want to play game like this but curse to my internet connection… ~~

    • GreekGod88

      it has Singleplayer too

      • Nitraion

        I mean i want to play multiplayer like this too… ~~

  • Domii

    Sega better put some marketing muscle in to this, or else. Platinum is one of my favorite developers, so if Sega leaves them alone to die again with this game, I swear i will not be giving Sega anymore of my money.

    • Too bad Sega is terrible when it comes to PR; Binary domain was pretty awesome but the game had zero marketing and bombed pretty hard.

      Though I think that everyone who knows who P* is will buy this game by default, but yes, their games deserve far bigger sales numbers.

      • Domii

        “Too bad Sega is terrible when it comes to PR; Binary domain was pretty awesome but the game had zero marketing and bombed pretty hard.”

        And this is why I’m not surprise Sega is in financial shambles as of now. I like their games, but I like Platinum even more, so every time Sega doesn’t put forth any marketing on deserving games, it makes me really really hate them. I wish Square or even Capcom can start publishing Platinum games instead of damn Sega.

        • haku67

           They did have ads on gamefaqs but other then that nothing. :/ its like shadows of the dammed that game had like zero PR from EA.

  • Solomon_Kano

    Jack riding Garuda + Big Bull getting stuck in tire = sold. Again.

    This game looked cool before but, now that we get to see the main focus, it’s clear that Platinum made sure this wouldn’t be something to get bored of quickly.

  • greatness

  • I am loving it!

  • Zeidge

    This game reminds me of a PS1 game I played all those years ago.

    Completely forgot what it was called though. Chibi (I think..) characters throwing stuff and beating each other up.

    • Maxim Belmont

      Sounds like either Rakugaki Showtime or Poy Poy.

      • Zeidge

        Yeah, it was Poy Poy 2. Good times.

      • Kitestwinblades

        I absolutely LOVED Rakugaki Showtime.  It needs current gen comeback X3
        although i DO appreciate the original art style very much XD

  • This is gonna be one sweet game, thank you Platinum.

  • That looks… very bombastic. And I like it!

  • Guest

    Why haven’t they put in Sam Gideon from Vanquish yet?

    Also Rent-A-Hero #1 would fit.

  • SpecDotSign

    The background looks terrible, and I don’t mean graphics terrible. I mean post world terrible. I honestly don’t like the aesthetic, BUT, this game looks godlike and mad fun. Especially because it’s Platinum.

    • raymk

      Well luckily this isn’t a game you’ll pay to much attention to them in seeing as how you can die pretty fast lol.

      • SpecDotSign

        You’re right. But just imagine if they’d use the kind of aesthetics in Vanquish or something similar to Binary Domain.

  • isfuturebright

    It looks fun… but I’m sensing major lag where I live hahhahaha

  • AaqibRawat

    I love it ! [ Gene’s voice]
