Bayonetta joins Anarchy Reigns as pre-order bonus

Shares

Bayonetta will be an unlockable character in the studio's forthcoming fighting game, Anarchy Reigns. The catch? Platinum Games is using its shapeshifting witch as an Anarchy Reigns pre-order bonus in Japan. That being said, Sileconera pointed out Bayonetta's cameo was first rumored on the western (Spanish-language) website Zonared, indicating the offer may be extended outside of Japan's borders. It's a stretch, but here's hoping.

 

The cross-over makes sense considering Anarchy Reigns is a Platinum Games project. Even if Bayonetta isn't added to the western version beforehand, odds are Sega will sell her as DLC at a later date.

Anarchy Reigns is described as an online beat 'em up which engages players in a little bit of the ole ultra-violence using characters from Platinum Games' MadWorld, as well as a number of new additions. See more of the multiplayer fighter in our preview, E3 2011: Anarchy Reigns: hands-on with bizarre brawler – and look for it to stain PS3 and Xbox 360 on July 3 in North America, and July 6 in the UK.

    I wonder if we'll ever see another "art house" project like Okami. As much as I loved Bayonetta (and liked Vanquish), it's about time they put down those guns and picked up the paint brushes again.

    As much as I'd love to see another Okami, I doubt they'll make something like that for the simple fact that it just does not sell. It's unfortunate but true.

    This will be the first Platinum game I don't buy due to it being an online affair. I'm just not a fan of playing online games.

    Oh, how lovely: Day one DLC. Seems like I'll be adding another game to my boycott list.

    You must boycott a lot of games. I can't even think of a title release in the last 5 years that hasn't had downloadable content as a pre-order incentive; it's pretty much an industry standard.

    Not going to boycott it, just... not buy it lol.

    Hot diggety. I mean, I know it was pretty obvious, but it's nice to see it finally confirmed. I'd probably have bought it even without Bayonetta, but this just gives me a reason to pre-prder when it comes to the UK, if she isn't included anyway
