After the scare that was brought on us by Platinum Games who revealed that the Western division of SEGA appeared to have gone silent regarding the release of Anarchy Games in Western territories despite being fully localised, the game finally has a new release window. Unfortunately despite the game coming out on July 5th in Japan (where it is known as Max Anarchy), the game will be released in the West in quarter 1 2013.
A SEGA representitive on Twitter announced today that “the release of Anarchy Reigns has been re-evaluated. We now expect to launch in Europe and America in Q1 of 2013.” No other reasons were given for the delay.
This news will obviously be bittersweet for fans of Platinum Games; while it’s obviously nice that the game will still be released in the West, it’s a bit of a shame we have to wait so long for a game that is already localised.
