New Releases: January - Anarchy Reigns, Devil May Cry



January is generally a quiet month when it comes to new releases, however there are a few titles arriving this month which may deserve your attention.

So what's on the way? Well first up is SEGA's Anarchy Reigns. Originally released in Japan back in July, this is one that Westerners have been crying out for ever since. For those who don't know it's an online beat em up by the team at Platinum Games, so that information alone should be enough to convince you that this is one to watch.

What else is new? Well, we finally see the arrival of Ninja's Theory's take on Devil May Cry, which from what we've played so far is an action packed, albeit slightly different approach to the classic series (our review will arrive closer to release).

Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch is another title which arrives this month and is once again a pretty highly anticipated game. Gamers have been raving about how great this Namco title looks for months, so we'll finally get to see if it lives up to the hype.

So what of Nintendo's brand new Wii U console? Where are the games? Well, there is one title being released this month which may appeal to those who like to stretch their vocal chords - Sing Party. This sees the lead singer follow the lyrics on the gamepad, while those watching the tv are given their own lyrics and dance moves to perform. Exciting huh?

So that's January's highlights? Anything above appeal to you?

Definitely getting Anarchy Reigns, not sure about DMC though, wasn't keen on the new look and the demo wasn't all that, probably just rent it.

dmc for me anarchy reigns does look good but there is to many games coming out i can't afford them all and not enough time.

Ni No Kuni is the main one for me. Might pick up Ninja Gaiden 3 for the Wii U when it releases next week.

I wouldn't bother with NG3 if I were you, I rented the 360 version and it was a serious step down for the franchise.

I had the first one on the X-Box. It was bog standard averageness. Only thing that kinda makes me want this is Ayane and Kasumi being in. Maybe once it's down to £20 or so.

A few years ago I would have been tempted by some extra story with Kasumi and Ayane, but I think after Other M, dumbing down NG and what they've done to the latest DoA that Team Ninja are losing it, and I'm not willing to cut them any more slack right now.

I'm looking forward to Anarchy Reigns and Ni No Kuni for this month. DMC looks okay but the demo wasn't anything to write home about. Think this year will be an awesome line-up

Anarchy Reigns & Ni No Kuni for me. On the topic of DMC I'll most likely pick it up at around £15 but it depends on what Capcom want to do with DLC

You do get the first dlc for free with the shopto version and some other sites.

I know but I'll be waiting to see if they pull a Dragons Dogma (23 bits of DLC released so far)

I will say that the first three months of this year is crazy and i am a sucker for a collectors edition and there is a couple of good ones coming out.

Ni No Kuni looks like the only worthwhile title of the bunch here. The demo of it was pretty great, so it seems the safest bet of the bunch. Anarchy Reigns sounds fairly mediocre, with it's only real selling point seemingly being it's low price. Sega's reluctance to release it at all does not inspire confidence. Devil May Cry seems to be better than was expected going by all accounts, but it still plays like a watered down version of past entries in the series.

I like the look of anarchy reigns and read an import review and they said it was great but my problem is, it basically an online only game and it hasn't sold well in japan and if its dead online there is no point owning it.
Dead's avatar
That is a possible downside, but at the price it is I would expect a good number of people to buy it. The actual look of it though I find a little disappointing, as it is essentially a sequel to Mad World they should have kept the same art style, they were right to add colour, but the hand drawn look is so much better in my opinion.

It does look like a pretty sweet game, might pick it up nearer the end of the month seeing as its only £17ish

Hadn't heard of Anarchy Kings or White Which until just now! Trailer for Anarchy Kings looks very promising (especially at £18 for a limited edition!) Heard Steve Blum's voice in there as well, as a big anime fan that made me happy.

I'm staving off this month, although very tempted by Anarchy Rules... for the next couple of months. Dead Space 3, Tomb Raider and God of War. Get in :)
