Max Anarchy: The new game by Platinum

Suprised no one's mentioned this yet, but Platinum Games are working on a new title called Max Anarchy.

Little is known about it so far, except that it'll be a combat game with both single and multiplayer modes...
oh, and it stars Jack from Madworld. You know, the guy with a chainsaw for a hand who likes to stick roadsigns into people's heads?

Is this a follow up to Madworld? Possibly, the teaser trailer features similar music as the awesome soundtrack to Madworld.

    Thank you good sir. I was just wondering when/where the new Platinum game thread would be.

    I know everyone's talking about Jack being back, but that trailer looks like it might have Big Bull Crocker from Madworld in it too. Not enough runaway homicidal minotaurs in games these days.

    I love Platinum dearly, and I know we haven't really seen anything yet, but this does not sound particularly appealing right off the bat. I'm not a big multiplayer guy, and MadWorld is arguably their worst game (well, haven't played Infinite Space). I'd at least like to see something different from them, but that's not what it sounds like.

    It sounds like an oldschool beatem up. Hopefully with some Power Stone like multiplayer.

    Im probably completly wrong. heres for wishful thinking.

    I'm not sure how I feel about this. The black and white graphic novel style of Madworld was a huge part of its appeal for me.

    Well I hope it's more like Power Stone than say, another Gears of War clone.

    I don't want to see these guys go down that path.

    It's a brawler, AND it's multiplayer. I'm so excited. Here's a screenshot:

    This will be known as Anarchy Reigns outside of Japan. I loved MADWORLD and Platinum has yet to disappoint. The lack of shadows makes it look bland so hopefully that's spruced up or looks great in motion.

    The same reason there's no sequel to The Usual Suspects or Citizen Kane, would be my guess.

    (yeah okay I'm being hyperbolistic, but bayonetta is one of my favorite games ever, and my point is that I don't think you could make a sequel to bayonetta and have it be as good as the first one)

    Sequels can be awesome.

    Red Dead Redemption was a clear improvement on Red Dead Revolver.

    Just Cause 2 beat the tar out of JC1.

    But what the hell can you do to improve on Bayonetta? You'd be gilding the lily.

    I mean, the thing I loved most about Bayonetta was that it never overstayed its welcome.

    Bayonetta ended with you punching God into the sun.

    It's really hard to better that with a sequel.

    Looks hot (or cool? Pun!). Seems to carry some of the Bayonetta legacy.

    Yeah, I also miss the black and white (and lotsa red) from Madworld, but the game sold like ass so maybe they're thinking the artsy approach is what drove buyers away.

    I also hope we get Proops and DiMaggio back as commentators. I loved hearing commentary on the ludicrous moves from, essentially, Bender. But again, this isn't Madworld.

    I hope this game has like 15 different characters, 50 levels and 100 secret levels. And I hope there's some kind of last man standing multplayer between 20 guys.

    But mostly I hope its better than those Ultimate Alliance games.

    I don't think there is anyone who doesn't want a Bayonetta 2. T-Danger brings up a valid point though.

    How?

    Punch the devil into the sun, obviously.


    Then go chill with Dante and kick Mundus's ass. Again.


    Bayonetta 3 could end by having you punch the devil and god inhabited sun into another sun. You know, Gurenn Lagann style levels of progression.

    Personally, I'd be happy with "Bayonetta 2" that plays like Bayonetta but doesn't have anything to do with its storyline or characters. Make up some new crazy.

    I think there's room for expansion on the realm of inferno, if they went for a sequel. Or they could take what they learned and make another brawler in an original setting. I'm really excited about this anyway.

    Well, this could kind of be like that.

    The gameplay definitely looks closer to Bayonetta than to Madworld.

    So: I'm hearing what sounds like some kind of ultraviolent Smash Brothers thing. I suspect even though it's multiplayer, there will be mooks, mooks of all types with nothing better to do than hit you with sticks en mass. I'm hoping there's some crowd control tactics and things involved here. The throwing of mans at other players, etc.

    Looks like we got Big Bull Crocker after all!

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d79JM3nXBaM&feature=player_embedded

    Of course, he does seem pretty upgraded from his Madworld days. I seem to recall that guy was wearing just a leather apron and a severed bull's head, so you know. :shock:

    I wonder what else they've got in mind? It would be a little strange if this game was only Madworld related.

    Hm. This game has hip hop-ish music, and so did Madworld.

    This is sounding more and more like a spiritual sequel.

    Please oh PLEASE bring Proops and DiMaggio back.

    Man, I don't know about this now.

    Platinum doesn't have that many titles, but if they're gonna rope in this many Madworld characters, they really oughta have some from their other stuff too, because that particular game is starting to take over what they're doing here.

    Well, I mean, two of their characters already look disturbingly close to Sam/Bayonetta.
