The delays are piling up and action fans are getting a little frustrated. Well, action fans in North America, anyway. This news doesn't effect the lucky Japanese gamers.
Platinum Games' Anarchy Reigns was initially expected to launch later last year but has since been pushed several times. The latest put the anticipated title's launch date at July 5 for Japan and a vague "summer 2012" for North America and Europe. We were okay with that, but-
Now, while the Japanese date remains, Sega has "reevaluated" the launch for other territories. In a simple update that offers no explanation, the publisher tossed up the following on their Twitter page :
"The release of Anarchy Reigns has been re-evaluated. We now expect to launch in Europe and America in Q1 of 2013."
If you've forgotten, the game is an all-out, balls-to-the-wall action extravaganza that boasts multiple recognizable faces from past Platinum titles (Bayonetta included) and wicked intense online multiplayer entertainment. …or so we've heard. We won't be able to verify that until next year. Patience is a virtue.
