While the Eastern development front deals with a slump in game design, there are still a handful of devs pushing boundaries. Platinum Games is one such studio, who over the last few years has made a name for itself as a premier developer of familiar genres with interesting, game-changing twists. We saw it with the likes of Mad World on Wii and the hugely popular Bayonetta on PS3 and Xbox 360, which is why all eyes were on the studio's first real multiplayer romp, Anarchy Reigns.

According to James "Jickle" O'Connor, the Platinum ability to deliver the goods is still very much intact here, as he explains in his review, but he's also quick to point out that this isn't the usual tight design affair we've come to expect from these guys.

But even when they're not on-point, there's still sharpness to their work.

Although the game is supposedly development-complete and will launch in Japan on schedule on July 5th 2012 (as Max Anarchy), developer Platinum Games has broken the news (via: Eurogamer) that the Anarchy Reigns' western release date has been pushed back into uncertainty.
SEGA has decided to change the date to TBC. While our work on the game is finished, localized, and ready to go, as publisher, SEGA gets to make the final decision as to when it is released. The Japanese release date, however, remains unchanged for July 5, 2012.
Despite even the Japanese version being over a month out, SEGA recently released this new "launch trailer" (complete with Bayonetta cameo) which you can watch embedded below while we wait for a revised US/EU/AU date.

SEGA have lifted the veil on the next title currently in the works at Platinum Games, the Japanese developer behind the Wii-exclusive Madworld and the more recently released Bayonetta and Vanquish (PS3, X360).

Anarchy Reigns is described as a "fresh multiplayer experience" in the brawler genre.
With ANARCHY REIGNS, PlatinumGames will be using their hallmark creativity and technical excellence to challenge the boundaries of the conventional brawler genre by allowing multiple players to get involved in heavy-hitting action simultaneously. ANARCHY REIGNS incorporates a diverse range of multiplayer modes to provide players with different challenges, including Tag Team battles and Battle Royal, where players can challenge others in a full-on fight for victory.
A couple of announcement screenshots can be found on our new game page, but between those images and that brief description, it's tough to tell what to expect. Our best guess would be something resembling a more platform-appropriate take on Madworld with a cooperative multiplayer element.

Anarchy Reigns is due on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 in Spring 2011 (U.S. Fall).
