Hello, I’m a programmer for Anarchy Reigns. My name’s Sakata.
For this entry, I’d like to try and talk about Anarchy Reigns from a programmer’s perspective.
As you’ve probably figured out by now, the concept behind Anarchy Reigns is a multiplayer online brawler. A messy free-for-all.
Hello, this is Paul.
My mother was from northern Japan and my father was from northern Japan too.
I was in charge of making the different types of matches in Anarchy Reigns along with its director, Yamanaka. Hope you enjoy my blog entry.
Anarchy Reigns tackles a new genre in gaming: multiplayer online brawling. From the start of development, there’s been a lot of trial and error. From the number of possible players, to the size of the stages and the types of matches, everything is new ground. Deciding what worked best and what would provide the most fun took a lot of thought.
Nice to meet everyone. This is Fujii, in charge of GUI design.
As Anarchy Reigns is Platinum’s first game with online capability, I’d like to write focusing on what specific precautions this required with the game’s user interface.

As we’re at the beginning of this blog, I thought I’d write about the concept behind Anarchy Reigns and its appeal.
Up until now, we at PlatinumGames have focused on single player action.
We’ve learned enough by now that we think we’re ready for the online, multiplayer crowd.
Vs. fighting, online. And not just me against you, a whole group bashing it out. Simply put, Anarchy.
But what’s good about it?
Hey guys. It’s Inaba, producer for Anarchy Reigns. Let me throw some words at you to explain this game:
A knock-down, drag-out brawl.
All sound like they add up to a little bit of a barbaric mix.
All right, let’s put something a little hi-tech in there:
