Bayonetta in Anarchy Reigns
Ever since Bayonetta was released in 2010, fans have been eager for a sequel, but now, in 2012, there is still no word of one being in production. However, a Japanese trailer has revealed that Bayonetta will be a playable character in the upcoming game Anarchy Reigns.
Anarchy Reigns is an online multiplayer fighting game that will be released on the PS3 and Xbox 360 on the 3rd of July in America and on the 6th of July in Europe. The game features many characters from Platinum Games first title MadWorld, as well as some new characters and of course Bayonetta.
Bayonetta is the story of a mysterious and slutty witch who essentially removes all her clothes to defeat tougher bad guys. Despite the, probably accurate, claims that it was sexist and demeaning to woman, the game did pretty well and received positive reviews from critics, myself included. The gameplay is amazing, it’s visually stunning and the story is interesting and just complicated enough to make it stick in your head. In essence it’s a more over the top Devil May Cry game, which isn’t surprising since they share the same creator.
There is massive demand for a sequel to Bayonetta. Whether or not one will ever materialise is still unknown, but at least fans can get another chance to play as the witch in Anarchy Reigns and the gameplay, moves and character design look identical to the ones from the game, though they may be a little tamer with the nudity. However, the character will be available only as a preorder bonus, which means that you have to preorder the game to choose her as a playable character. So keep that in mind before you buy the game.
What do you think? Are you happy she will be in the game? Do you like the character? Would you prefer a Bayonetta sequel?
