Bayonetta will be a playable character in Sega’s Anarchy ReignsPosted 10:52 am on Tuesday, November 20th, 2012 by John 'Spartan' Nguyen
For those of you who are sad that you’ll be left out in the cold when Bayonetta 2 hits exclusively for the Wii U, you’re in luck. Well, kind of. Gamestop has an exclusive pre-order DLC for Anarchy Reigns where players will get a chance to play as the disproportionate witch, Bayonetta. The exclusive DLC also includes two extra multiplayer game modes, Mad Survival and Dogfight.
Instead of the usual video game price of $59.99 for popular titles, Anarchy Reigns will retail for $29.99 and will be available on January 8, 2013, for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
The full details are below.
In Mad Survival mode, a team of 3 players duke it out against waves of enemies, much as in the normal survival mode. However, these enemies now take the form of the other playable characters in Anarchy Reigns, leading to a far tougher series of battles that require serious tactical thinking to outsmart your foes. In traditional PlatinumGames style, Dogfight mode sees players hanging from helicopters -pelting each other with bullets until their opponents fall out of the sky. As well as being a surreal new spin on this multiplayer brawler, this aerial-based game mode is an entertaining change of pace from land-based combat, offering gamers a new way to explore the locations found in-game.
The iconic star of her own self-titled adventure, Bayonetta is a formidable force on the battlefield. Players who unlock Bayonetta will be able to wield her four guns, collectively known as Scarborough Fair, and use her patented ‘Wicked Weave’ attacks to deal even more damage to any poor soul that falls in her sights.
