Anarchy Reigns, the multiplayer brawler from Platinum Games and SEGA, has been given a January 11 release date in Europe for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.

The game will launch at an amazingly low price of just £19.99. US gamers are in luck too. The game arrives there on January 8 priced $29.99.

"SEGA are hugely proud of the work PlatinumGames has put in to creating a video game with such a unique and engaging vision" commented Jurgen Post, COO of SEGA Europe Ltd. "Gamers will soon be able to experience the full adrenaline rush that comes from competing in the explosive multiplayer matches of Anarchy Reigns."

Anarchy Reigns offers 16-player online combat, with a cast of iconic characters from the Platinum Games stable. The developer has previously released numerous hit games, including the superb Bayonetta and Vanquish.

"Focusing on online play with Anarchy Reigns presented a new challenge for us here at PlatinumGames," added Atsushi Inaba, Executive Director/Producer at Platinum Games. "Very few games fall under its genre of a melee-based online multiplayer brawler, so I think we've been able to supply a new kind of excitement that you can't find anywhere else. While some time has passed since its Japan release, I look forward to having gamers in North American and Europe enjoy the Anarchy!"
