The Black Baron (now "Blacker Baron") and his murderous assistant Mathilda, both from MadWorld, will be playable in Anarchy Reigns' multiplayer mode. The Baron will fight with gloves that are on fire, while Mathilda will fight with a spiked mace. Also: in matches, environmental hazards like tsunamis and black holes will occasionally appear, forcing players to stay on their guard at all times. 

Here's an interview with lots of footage:

  
The game looks fun as hell!

How do you guard against a black hole?

That dude is Rorie's Japanese counterpart.

It seems that these arenas are big sprawling areas.

Maaaad lag in parts of that demo, not a very good sign. 
 
I'm skeptical about this. In fact, the only thing keeping me from writing this off immediately as another bad game is my faith in Platinum.

The game isn't coming out until this autumn, so they have plenty of time to work that out. Hopefully they'll put out a beta... if there's an online game that could benefit from extensive testing and feedback from the audience, it's this one. A studio with no online experience making a type of online game that has almost never been made before (I think there's been like one game like this before, and I'm not sure how similar that was to this)... they're going to need it.

You think so? The stage in the footage didn't look that big.

I think adding characters that are very clearly offbrand derivative of characters from God Hand would be hilarious.
