Anarchy Reigns: Some Words From The Producer

Platinum Games

Filed: Anarchy Reigns, Community, Games, PlatinumGames

Cross-posted from Anarchy Reigns -Platinum Side-: 

Hey guys. It’s Inaba, producer for Anarchy Reigns. Let me throw some words at you to explain this game:

Melee action.
A knock-down, drag-out brawl.

All sound like they add up to a little bit of a barbaric mix.
All right, let’s put something a little hi-tech in there:


We could probably go on finding words to describe Anarchy Reigns all day. But to put it short, the objective of this game is to link up with players from across the globe and beat the living daylights out of them.

Check out the rest of this post on Anarchy Reigns -Platinum Side- and learn more about Anarchy Reigns, available January 2013 in North America and Europe!

PG Break Episode 08


Filed: Anarchy Reigns, Community, Games, Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance, PGTV

PG Break 08 fires off with a truly PRESS START  moment before turning our attention to tons of Max Anarchy/Anarchy Reigns news – two new characters, a Japanese launch trailer, and a preview of the Dilated Peoples track, This Is Madness.

Finally, 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, localized, 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 July 5, 2012.

PG Break Episode 06


Filed: Anarchy Reigns, Community, Games, PGTV, PlatinumGames, Vanquish

PG Break returns from a week off with Anarchy Reigns character announcements, Vanquish figures, and general stupidity. Also, Hideki Kamiya’s head.

Show Notes:

– Around the World –
The Crimson Dragon sisters join the cast of Anarchy Reigns! Check out their character clips here!
The Vanquish Play Arts Kai figures are out! Pick up Sam or Bogey (Zaitsev).
The amazing Anarchy Reigns team battle video (in Japanese)!

From JP’s Twitter:

A follow-up to the team battle vid – The goal is to kill the other team commander. Classes are assigned based on your individual kills. Classes are re-assigned during the course of the match to top players on team. You can be Squad Leader, Spec Ops, or Medic. Each has buffs.

Feel free to hit up “Kaiser” Taura (@pg_taura) for tips and tricks. Or just to call him pretty.

-Community Spotlight-

Win a Vanquish figure! Make JP laugh the hardest and get your choice of Sam or Bogey. Just post using the #PGLIVE hashtag to win. The rules are simple – Make it something you can tweet, make it safe for work, and preferably make it PlatinumGames related. The best tweet that takes JP’s mind of impending E3 crunch will get a toy for their trouble! If you have any questions, ask them on the forums at

Young Nicholas was wrong. Kenji Saito’s favorite Metal Gear is MGS1 because of the awesome characters.

The great Japanese Max Anarchy site is coming in English.
