[Europe Only] Anarchy Reigns Day One Edition Announced


Today, we reveal the details of the limited Anarchy Reigns ‘Day One’ Edition version. For those gamers eager to cause as much anarchy as possible, pre-ordering the Day One Edition will net them two extra multi-player game modes, Mad Survival and Dogfight. Along with this they will unlock an extra playable character; none other than the world’s favorite witch, Bayonetta.

In Mad Survival, a team of 3 players duke it out against waves of enemies, much as in the normal survival mode. However, these enemies now take the form of the other playable characters in Anarchy Reigns, leading to a far tougher series of battles that require serious tactical thinking to outsmart your foes. In traditional PlatinumGames style, Dogfight sees players hanging from helicopters -pelting each other with bullets until their opponents fall out of the sky. As well as being a surreal new spin on this multi-player brawler this aerial-based game mode is an entertaining change of pace from land-based conflict, also offering gamers a new way to explore the locations found in-game.

The iconic star of her own self-titled adventure, Bayonetta is a formidable force on the battlefield. Wielding her four guns collectively known as Scarborough Fair, she can also use her patented ‘Wicked Weave’ attacks to deal even more damage to any poor soul that falls in her sights. Players who unlock Bayonetta won’t have an advantage over the other characters but, well…she does wear guns on her boots. We’ll leave it at that.

The Anarchy Reigns Day One Edition will be available to pre-order from your local physical, or favorite online retailer for £19.99 / €29.99 for the PlayStation3  and Xbox 360. Anarchy Reigns will be released on January 11th 2013 in Europe.

We’ll have more information soon on how fans outside of Europe can get these exclusive items.
