Relic Entertainment Now Owned by SEGA; Platinum Games Interested in Buying Darksiders

Thursday, January 24th, 2013

SEGA has successfully won Relic Entertainment (developers of Warhammer 40K: Dawn of War and Space Marine) meaning it now has control of both the Warhammer license and Warhammer 40K license. SEGA paid a whopping $26.6 million.

In other news, Platinum Games has shown an interest in buying the Vigil studio who own the rights to the Darksiders franchise. This is an interesting move in that Platinum Games’ Bayonetta was released the same week as the original Darksiders.

Platinum Games head honcho Atsushi Inaba tweeted: “In THQ studio and IP selling off auction, Darksiders is unsold? [We] wanna buy it…on the cheap…”

The Vigil studio was not put up for auction with the other THQ franchises which could mean that Platinum Games make a deal with THQ out of auction for the lower price that Inaba-san is talking about.

Anarchy Reigns Limited Edition Includes Playable Bayonetta

Thursday, November 8th, 2012

Anarchy Reigns will be getting a limited edition which includes Bayonetta as a playable character.

The limited edition also includes 2 bonus multiplayer modes; Mad Survival and Dogfight. Mad Survival pits a team of 3 characters against waves of enemies that are made up of playable characters from the game. Dogfight’s mechanic is to hang you from helicopters while you shoot at other players also hanging from helicopters. Sounds mental.

Anarchy Reigns launches in the UK on the 11th of January 2013 for £19.99. The game is already out in Japan where it goes by the name of Max Anarchy.
