It got delayed a few times and up until now, we didn't have a solidified Western launch date.
But now, Platinum's latest title has been officially dated for North America and Europe: Anarchy Reigns will release in the US for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 on January 8, 2013, while our European friends will get it three days later on January 11. The interesting part is the price: $30.
We're not about to guess as to why the game is half the price of a typical new title; you guys can do that, if you want. All we know is that the game released as Max Anarchy in Japan this past summer and it was greeted with lukewarm reviews that appreciated the combat mechanic but found the action a bit repetitive. Also, don't forget that Anarchy Reigns was initially slated to launch last fall, so we're over a year behind. Still, it's probably a good idea not to bring it out this holiday season; the competition is stiff, as usual.
Here's hoping the game is worth playing.
