By Ishaan . May 29, 2012 . 11:50pm

PlatinumGames have announced details of the Anarchy Reigns demo that will be released in Japan on May 31st. The demo will allow you to sample both the game’s singleplayer story mode, as well as multiplayer.


As far as singleplayer goes, you’ll be able to try both the “Black side” and “White side” of Anarchy Reigns’ story. Jack is the star of Black, while Leo takes the spotlight in White. Meanwhile, multiplayer will allow you to try both Deathmatch and Team Deathmatch modes.


Sega haven’t said what characters will be playable in the demo, but screenshots show Jack, Leo, Durga and Sasha. The full version of Anarchy Reigns will be released in Japan on July 5th.

    I’m excited to download the demo. Here’s hoping the demo won’t disappoint. I really need some fun arcade-style brawler and I was disappointed that Asura’s Wrath didn’t turn out to be like that.

    I’m still frustrated to Sega for holding the release of the game outside Japan. I hope they won’t let us wait for long. Or cancel the game.

      I have the exact same feeling :|

      Lol after play asura’s wrath demo it was instant turn off X_x….

       Weird…I liked AsuraXD
      BTW Anarchy full game has english voices and subtitles,that could mean that the demo is multilingual too…maybe.
      We could make a siliconera anarchy deathmatch!

      I doubt Platinum would pull an Asura on us. They tend to put actually gameplay in their games.

      Mmm the delay I think is more to do with retooling the online balance, things like how the game handles delay, and latency for a global scale. I wouldn’t worry about the game getting canned outside of Japan, that’s pretty unlikely.

    damn i that the demo would be in the us as will

    • Asura

    I created a JP PSN account to play demos for upcoming localizations or games that won’t.

    I was wondering since the game has gone from definite to a TBC (To be confirmed) for the west, will we still be getting a demo of the game as well?

      They announced in the PG Break on their website that everyone should be able to play the demo if they have a Japanese PSN account.

        Thank you. This whole post doesn’t say XBL or PSN at all.

      • usagi_san

        Awesome! Thank you.

  • LuciferD666

    Created a JP PSN account for One Piece DLC. Came in handy for this too.

    just watched the new trailer on PSN , so MANY MODES!! This game’s gonna keep me busy for the summer for sure! Now whether to decide to day 1 import it or not after playing the demo 

  • All these demos right before my two most important exams…the winds of fate are tempting me!!

    Also, by 31st, does that mean tomorrow or today (since it’s already the 31st in Japan)?

    The whole demo can be played in english if you change the language settings in the options menu.
