Platinum Games, developer of Bayonetta and Vanquish, have announced their third high-definition video game.
Titled Max Anarchy, Platinum Games’ latest venture is an online action combat game. This week’s issue of Famitsu contains a full-blown reveal of the game, as well as an interview with Platinum Games producer Atsushi Inaba.
According to Inaba, Max Anarchy has the feel of a fighting game. You’ll be in a fight against a group of other players online, where at any time someone can strike you from behind. While he says that synching up all the players online is difficult, he doesn’t say how many players can play at once.
Aside from multiplayer, a single-player story mode is also in the game. MadWorld‘s Jack Cayman is a playable character (in full color!), but he has nothing to do with the story or game world.
Max Anarchy, like past Platinum titles, will be published by Sega and will launch worldwide simultaneously this year.
