Sega have announced an Anarchy Reigns “Day One” Edition for Europe, which will come with bonus content that isn’t in the regular edition of the game. As the name implies, you’ll need to pre-order the game in order to receive this version of it.

 

The “Day One” edition will include Bayonetta as a playable character, just like in the Japanese version of the game. You can find playable footage of her here and here (along with other characters).

 

The Day One edition will also have two extra multiplayer modes—Mad Survival and Dogfight. The former has a team of three players going up against a wave of enemies like the regular survival mode, but in Mad Survival, these enemies are the other playable characters in Anarchy Reigns, making it a tougher challenge.

 

Meanwhile, the latter mode, Dogfight, has players hanging from helicopters and pelting each other with bullets until their opponents drop. An aerial battle, effectively.

 

The Anarchy Reigns Day One Edition will be available for pre-order for £19.99 / €29.99 on the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 in Europe. The game will be released in Europe on January 11th, 2013. Sega have not announced this edition for North America so far.
