Anarchy Reigns Coming to the West in January 2013

Friday, October 19th, 2012

Platinum Games have revealed that the long delayed Western release of Anarchy Reigns on X-Box 360 and PS3 is finally happening in January 2013. The Americans get it on January 8th for $29.99 while the UK and Europe get it on January 11th for £19.99/€24.99. That’s right; we get a budget priced version!

Anarchy Reigns has been out in Japan since July 5th under the title Max Anarchy. The game had infamously gone gold complete with English language versions for the July 5th release date but SEGA decided against a summer launch and delayed it for unknown reasons.

Anarchy Reigns to be Released in the West in Quarter 1 2013

Monday, June 18th, 2012

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.

Anarchy Reigns’ Western Release is Uncertain

Friday, May 25th, 2012

Anarchy Reigns; the new multiplayer brawler from Platinum Games was due for release in Europe on the 6th of July and in the US on the 3rd of July. However, Platinum Games have revealed that the Western release has changed to ‘to be confirmed’.

A note on the Platinum Games website says, “We break the bad news about Anarchy Reigns US/EU release date – Sega has decided to change the date to TBC. While our work on the game is finished, localised, and ready to go, as publisher, Sega gets to make the final decision as to when it is released. The Japanese release date, however, remains unchanged for 5th July 2012.”

Fingers crossed that SEGA release a new Western release date soon and that the game’s Western release has not been shelved. Platinum Games have delivered some stunning entertainment this generation and it would be a massive shame if Anarchy Reigns becomes Japan exclusive.
