Anarchy Reigns coming to Europe and America in early 2013

Anarchy Reigns
will be coming to Japan on July 5th. But what about us hard working Americans and Europeans? You will have to wait till Q1 2013 it seems. Why the delay? Platinum  Games already stated that the game was localized, all SEGA has to do is release it.

“The release of Anarchy Reigns has been re-evaluated. We now expect to launch in Europe and America in Q1 of 2013,”  – Tweeted SEGA.

The reason the title was already localized along side with the Japanese version was that Platinum Games wanted a world wide launch so players could play anyone from around the world day one. Sadly, the launch they wanted isn’t going to happen. What do you guys think? I don’t know why SEGA delayed the game from summer, to release it when a ton of high profile games will be coming out early 2013…

    I wish SEGA would quit playing games with us and just commit to either releasing the game in the West or not.

    Also, Q1 2013? Really? They’re saying they want to release it in the same quarter as Tomb Raider, Bioshock Infinite, DmC, and their own Aliens: Colonial Marines? Didn’t they learn their lesson after releasing Binary Domain a week before Mass Effect 3?

      There’s also some EA games in that period, like Crysis 3 and Dead Space 3.
      Smart idea from SEGA of America, delaying Anarchy Reigns from a period with close to no big games to a period crowded with games. This is totally going to end well for them…

    What the fuck SEGA West? Like, I love SEGA and the community team and all, but some staff are serious dumbasses. Guessing some number cruncher made this decision. Welp, I’m importing this, should it be region free, and SEGA West can suck it. 😛

    Actually, Max Anarchy isn’t out in Japan until July 5th.

    I saw this just before going to work but I didn’t have time to post it myself.

    This REALLY pisses me off. WHY?!! Why kill this game by putting it out during all those big name titles in the spring when there’ not much for games out this summer? We know the games ready. It’s localized with english options.

    THIS shit right here is the main reason SOA is failing. Not only putting shitty developers on licensed games from Marvel, but putting all their biggest games coming from Japan directly against other big games like Binary Domain during Mass Effect 3 or Resonance of Fate against Final Fantasy 13. Not to mention dumping Yakuza into March every fucking year. It’s like SoA WANTS these games to fail!

    I’m importing this game. Sega of America just guaranteed that this game will bomb. Good job.

    Maybe the downsizing of the American Branch wasn’t such a bad idea after all with decisions like that.

    The best thing SEGA fans can do now is support the import and ignore the western release.

    What exactly was the point of doing this if the localization is already done? And what if Metal Gear Rising comes out around the same time period? Then we’d have two games from similar developers competing with each other.

  7. Radik says:

    Want to know what’s really terrible about this? Sega didn’t even bother contacting PlatinumGames regarding the change in release date: . They found out the same way we did. That really shows a complete and utter lack of respect for PlatinumGames from the part of Sega.

  8. Monty says:

    What is wrong with Sega? Who is making these decisions?! Do they think some miracle will come along and their game will be able to get the same notoriety as their competitor’s?
