Platinum Games have announced ‘Max Anarchy’ as their next title in development for XBox 360 and PlayStation 3. The game is being described as an online action combat game. Indeed Platinum are responsible for highly acclaimed Bayonetta and Vanquish. The roots of the company go back to Clover Studio, which itself was responsible for very well-known games. Naturally, the expectations are high with this one. The character reveals, in particular, will be interesting to follow.
Max Anarchy started development in a trial and error phase two yeas ago, Inaba explained. The title we’ll be getting has a number of differences from that early version, though.
Asked to describe the game, Inaba replied "Fighting Game." The game will show characters who’ve had their abilities strengthened fighting it out all at once in a situation where, similar to a group fight, you may end up getting pounded suddenly from behind.
The game will have at its base an offline story mode with a solid story. On top of this will be a variety of options that allow players to enjoy themselves online. These will include cooperative elements in addition to free-for-all combat.
Inaba didn’t share details on that solid story, but he did reveal one of the game’s playable characters. Jack, the main character in Platinum’s violent Wii title MadWorld, will be playable. The Platinum staff had wanted to make use of the character again, explained Inaba, and he fit Max Anarchy perfectly, even though he has nothing to do with the game’s story and world setting.
Noting that it’s difficult to get an image for something if the genre is new, Famitsu asked Inaba to compare it to something. He replied "fighting game" again, but added that even though it may look like Sega’s long lost arcade multiplayer fighting series Spikeout, the gameplay is different.
Asked how he feels about the game in its current state of development, Inaba said that he has confidence in the gameplay areas. Balancing the game is tough, though, as due to it being a new genre they have to make it, to a certain extent, more easily accessible.
