    Wow, cheap. I was expecting $60.

    • Revorse

      Maybe they reduced the price cause of delays

      • KingNigma

        Then I should be able to purchase Versus XIII with a few quarters by the time it comes out…. (I kid, I kid)

  • Bliskirnir

    its about time 

  • Emiliano Ramos

    OMG YES!!! And it’s so cheap, why??? This game deserves my 60 bucks, I’mma buy it twice and give the extra one to a friend.

    • margherita mastropaolo

      yeah,i’ll probaly do the same

    • Skerj

      I’ll probably do the same thing, need people to fight online. Come see me with Ai Rin!!

  • EspadaKiller

    Oh wow that’s cheap.

    Whether at $30 or 60 the same niche crowd will buy it… not sure what Sega’s thinking

    • margherita mastropaolo

      eh you might be right let’s hope you’re not

  • Genesis

    Omg, finally! I am going to play the hell out of this. I’ve been anticipating AR for ages.

    • z_merquise

      Yeah, the wait is totally worth it. But the people who imported it did get to enjoy it early and they said the game is really good.

      Anarchy Reigns in January, Metal Gear Rising in February.

      Start of 2013 is really going to be awesome for Platinum.

      • Skerj

        Don’t forget, The Wonderful 101 won’t be too far behind that, if not in March. 

  • z_merquise

    Sound the Alarm!

    I’m happy that we’re finally getting it and in a cheaper price!

    Day 1 buy for me because I really love the demo and I’m also a huge fan of Platinum Games.

    • PrinceHeir

      GET HYPE!!!

  • PrinceHeir

    $29.99 only?

    GETTING IT DAY FUCKING ONE!!!!!

    finally Sega doing something right :P

    Bayonetta will be mine!!!!

    I guess it’s not too surprising they held it back past the large amount of good games coming out in q1/q2 next year as it would be lost amongst them. It’s good for PG that it’s not going to be in competition with Rising too. It was dumb of Sega to hold it back past its original worldwide release when all the localisation work had been done already, but hopefully the lower price will bring in more players, as otherwise the online would be pretty screwed.

    Sega’s putting quite a few games out cheaply these days as well, like the new Sonic Racing game is launching at $40/£25, if only some of the other big publishers would aim for lower prices and higher sales that way :)

    This is great $29.99 and not a digital release.
    Definitely buying it.

    • DrForbidden

      Are we certain that it’s not a digital release? I mean, the article doesn’t specify.

      • http://www.facebook.com/JaeWhy SasuleUchiha

        It’s confirmed.

        I just hope we get Bayonetta as well.

        • DrForbidden

          Then that’s great news. I paid through the nose to import the Japanese version, but I’m happy you guys will be getting a deal. THe game may not have much longevity, but it’s definitely worth $30, and there are offline bots to play with as well, which makes it heads-and-shoulder above most other MP-oriented games out there.

        Believe it or not, It’s actually been available for Pre-Order via buy.com for $29.99 for months now.

  • Kobracon

    HAH! Get it guys. Catch up to us importers and we can have a Gematsu Brawl! (HA! IF Gematsu was still called Scrawl, I coulda called that Scrawl Brawl XD)

    Also for the love of GOD avoid playing against Japanese players. They do things that you didn’t even KNOW u could do…..

    • Skerj

      Just the type of players I want to play against.

  • Rezar

    Thank you Sega! Since Anarchy Reigns is so cheap I will get both versions most likely. Hopefully Anarchy Reigns doesn’t take up too much hard drive space on the PS3.

    niiiiiice

  • KingOptimusOrigins111

    I’m a give this game a try.

    I feel like the $30 dollar price was Sega’s way of apologizing.

    I do believe you are forgiven unlike others *coughsqaureenixandcapcom*
