First ‘Anarchy Reigns’ Character Trailers and Screen Shots Released

So this is a new genre we haven’t heard of before. A “massively multi-player beat ’em up.” Color us intrigued.

Recently, PlatinumGames and Sega announced their latest title coming to the XBox 360 and PlayStation 3 titled Anarchy Reigns. Little information was given about the game other than a brief teaser trailer featuring some over the top looking characters and the brief PR blip:

With ANARCHY REIGNS, PlatinumGames will be using their hallmark creativity and technical excellence to challenge the boundaries of the conventional brawler genre by allowing multiple players to get involved in heavy-hitting action simultaneously.

ANARCHY REIGNS incorporates a diverse range of multiplayer modes to provide players with different challenges, including Tag Team battles and Battle Royal, where players can challenge others in a full-on fight for victory.

Players will quickly recognize PlatinumGames as the creators of the critical darlings Mad World, Bayonetta, and Vanquish. Now, with the latest character reveal trailers, we start to get a little context of just what is in store for players when they take to the streets in Anarchy Reigns, entitled Max Anarchy over in Japan.

Many younger players don’t know the real joy of a true beat ’em up game unless they were fortunate enough to look past flashy graphics and download classics like Streets of Rage, Final Fight, X-Men or possibly the greatest ever Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Now, PlatinumGames looks to bring this classic genre that has fallen by the wayside back to the new generation of players with Anarchy Reigns.

Check out the teaser trailer for Anarchy Reigns as well as the character trailers and screens for Big Bull, Jack, Sasha and Zero.
