There isn't a hotter company in Japanese action than Platinum Games. Made up of disgruntled ex-Capcom employees, they have captured the imagination of the world and re-awoken a dormant style of video game that has been shelved for the better half of a decade, hardcore Japanese action.
They aren't afraid to show off a little either. Japan officially went back to work after the New Year this week, and Platinum Games has thrown together a montage of what 2013 has in-store for its fans.
While focusing a bit on their critical successes like Vanquish, Mad World, Infinite Space, and Bayonetta, the trailer is mostly geared towards their three biggest titles of 2013. Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance, which hey are making for Konami, and two Wii U exclusives, Bayonetta 2 and The Wonderful 101, are all due at some point this year, and all three games are brimming with the slick action the company is known for.
Also showed off in the trailer is Anarchy Reigns, which might be old news for the Japanese video game market, but is actually just being shipped out yesterday for all the Americans who have yet to join in on the fun. For just $30, you can join in on the action already brewing with this violent and experimental brawler loosely based on the Mad World IP.
It could also be the last niche title SEGA ever physically publishes, so that in itself is an event. For $30 and not much else in sight for the month of January, why not?
Here's to an exciting year from Platinum Games as they further find their foothold in the dwindling Japanese developer marketplace.
