Anarchy Reigns gets story mode and character details

Some cool news for those of you looking forward to insanely violent brawler Anarchy Reigns, the latest issue of Famitsu has revealed some titbits relating to the single player campaign. The set up sounds not surprisingly similar to MadWorld. the story takes place in the post apocalyptic city of Altanbra which you must take on missions in to progress. Each part of the city will have it’s own gimmick and the levels will change themselves up (via natural disasters) in real time.

So that’s the basic premise with a small gameplay teaser. Hit the jump for character info!

jack is a battle expert with special forces experience who makes use of a dual bladed chain saw. He’s part of an organization called Chasers, who take on missions that the police can’t solve. He’s 75% cyborg. He was once a heavy smoker, but has quit.

Jack’s chainsaw is named “Gator Tooth.” It’s what’s known as a “Killer Weapon.” The game’s characters all have these special weapons which they’re particularly adept at using.

Those characters include Big Bull, Zero and Sasha, all of whom were first introduced when Anarchy Reigns was first unveiled. In story mode, these characters serve as rivals who face off against Jack.

Big Bull:
Four years back, Big Bull suffered a great injury, so he got rid of his body and moved his brain into a cyborg body. His Killer Weapon is Jet Hammer.

Zero wears a Nano Machine Suit, which strengthens his stealth abilities, allowing him to be good at sneaking missions. He’s been fighting mutants and battle cyborgs in order to acquire data for the development of a new weapon. Zero is just his code name. His Killer Weapon is the twin blades Oni Maru and Juzu Maru.

An agent with the first strike team at the maximum security area of the Bureau of Public Safety. She’s a master of BPS Fighting, a combat that makes use of a new Nano Machine Suit created by BPS. Her Killer Weapon is Snow Spikes.

Quite a cool cast so far, but I can’t wait to see what others are revealed. This game over the past weeks has gone from ‘meh’ to ‘does want’ so I’ll definitely be keeping an eye out for more info in the coming weeks. What about you? Excited? Nervous? Don’t care? Tell me in the comments!
