Anarchy Reigns Dated for Europe and North America

Anarchy Reigns Dated for Europe and North America

Reintroducing the Rin sisters too

Written by Rebecca Smith (punkyliar) on 20 October 12 at 22:06

The last that we heard of Anarchy Reigns was when the game was released in Japan back in July. Since then, everything has been quiet on the state of the game's western release, which had been delayed several times until landing firmly in Q1 2012. We can now narrow that release window down to a specific day -- Anarchy Reigns is due to be released in North America on January 8th, 2013 and in Europe on January 11th.

As part of the process of reminding us of the game's existence, Platinum Games has decided to reintroduce us to the Rin sisters. The trio first appeared in a series of combo trailers in April, but we can now bring you their concept art and their biographies:

We also have a few new screenshots for you. We see the Rin sisters in action and Jack Cayman in a situation in which I would never have imagined him being:

To finish the new media onslaught, we have concept art for two of the environments in which players will do battle:

When released in January, Anarchy Reigns will retail at the bargain price of £19.99 / €29.99 / $29.99.

I'm guessing you're referring to the symbol next to Anarchy Reigns on the biographies? If so, that isn't the Borderlands symbol -- it's a symbolic representation of anarchy.

Yeah i know but there are many games using it now

£19.99? That's just...incredible. I might actually go out and buy this within the first week of release, if the reviews are solid.

About time Sega. I will accept your apologies in the form of dropping the game to $30.

Don't think that you're off the hook though, you have a lot of explaining to do as to why you delayed this game needlessly for six months for NA.

A ton of players already imported this since it wasn't region locked. That $30 price tag is making me happy I waited. Either way, this took way too long. Wayyyyyyyy tooooooo fucking loooooong.

I'm curious as to where all the Rin sisters hide their 'concealed' weapons... But as a male pig I'm certainly not complaining :)

Been waiting for this for a while, has had good reviews and said it was not going to have a Europe release due to poor sales in Japan. I was going to order the import at £70 which is region free, but now with a Europe release extra characters and at the bargain price of £19.99 I will wait! :)

I just actually read the sister's stats and realized each of their weapons are related to someone from Three Kingdoms. I think I've got my facts straight here...

Huanglong - Xiao Wei
Zilong - Zhao Yun
Yanlong - Sun Zi

I could be wrong here. Or it could just be coincidence.

I think Bayonetta will be on the disc or free dlc as she was with the Japanese version and with the re-introduction of the three sisters, I think they are trying to give the game a bit more appeal and style for the US and European market!
