Tsunamis. Carpet bombings. Giant sea squids. Not the way you normally see a round end in a fighting game. But from the looks of things, Anarchy Reigns isn’t going to be your average fighting game. With an already eclectic assortment of revealed characters (as well as some new unnamed ones seen below), Anarchy Reigns looks like it will be the Twisted Metal of open street combat.
Over the top doesn’t seem to be a problem here as utter chaos seemingly engulfs this world. There are still lots of questions left unanswered like just what the whole point of Anarchy Reigns will be and why its combatants are fighting to the death. But, what little we have seen so far has caught our attention.
In the new “Fight to the Death” trailer below, you will see the first look at the game’s ATE’s (Action Triggered Events). These will be massive set piece events that can change the pace of a battle dramatically and look to set Anarchy Reigns apart from other brawler style games.
Also below, take a peek at some new screens featuring some of the ATE’s as well as some new characters including an orange clad pimp, Big Bull’s purple brethren and a girl with a very dangerous looking spiked belt.
Stick to the Flickcast for more on Anarchy Reigns as it becomes available before its Fall 2011 release for PlayStation 3 and XBox 360 from SEGA.
