Anarchy Reigns is the latest over-the-top action game from Platinum Games, a studio that has rightly earned a reputation for such things in the past couple of years with games like MadWorld, Bayonetta and Vanquish. Being billed as a multiplayer brawler, it evokes fond memories of Power Stone’s particular brand of combat, bolstered by Platinum’s particular sense of style.
The latest trailer reveals a brand new character, “Black Baron”. He’s a large, black man with golden, sexy fists of fire and pimp attire straight out of a 70′s sci-fi blaxploitation film, and boy does he appear to kick ass. He looks like he’ll fit right in next to characters like Big Bull or Jack from Madworld. I’m still holding out hope for cameos from Bayonetta and/or Sam Gideon from Vanquish.
For now, head past the break to see the Black Baron in action.
