Platinum Games, the developer behind such exercises in absurdity as Bayonetta, Vanquish, and Mad World, have announced that the titular witch of 2010’s Bayonetta will be a playable character to those who preorder their upcoming game, Anarchy Reigns.

Anarchy Reigns is a 3D brawler that has a strong emphasis on online combat. It has drawn a lot of comparisons from the Dreamcast-era PowerStone, but having never played that game, I’m having a difficult time wrapping my head around the gameplay of Anarchy Reigns.

That being said, the trailers I’ve seen display deliciously over-the-top style and grandiose, bizarre combat, so it’s clear Bayonetta suits the game well.

Anarchy Reigns is due out in the US on July 3. Check out the trailer announcing Bayonetta’s appearance below.
