Games Hitting UK Stores This Week, Starring Anarchy Reigns

It’s the first full retail release week of 2013 and as you’d expect not much is set to arrive this Friday. January is traditionally a very quiet time and this week is no exception, however we do have one major hit heading to store shelves and that’s Platinum Games’ already-critically acclaimed hit, Anarchy Reigns.

As far as limited edition bonuses go, Bayonetta is a pretty good one!

Surprisingly for such a big release, no retailer has the killer advantage when it comes to Anarchy Reigns pre-orders.

Like many new titles set to appear in 2013, SEGA aren’t releasing a standard version of Anarchy Reigns, instead every edition of the game is ironically being dubbed ‘Limited Edition’ and includes Bayonetta as a playable character, as well as two additional multiplayer modes (Mad Survival and Dogfight).

It’s also worth noting that there aren’t any retailer-specific pre-order bonuses to be had for this game either, so we’d recommend going for the cheapest price which at time of writing is Shopto.Net which is selling Anarchy Reigns on either Xbox 360 or PlayStation 3 for the stunningly low price of £17.86. Prices vary wildly, for instance Zavvi is still charging £49.99, so be sure to place down your money wisely and keep checking Anarchy Reigns’ product page for any last minute pricing adjustments by retailers.

Two other games are also out this week though, and they’re both on the Wii U games! First up we have NBA 2K13 if you fancy some Jay-Z-enthused basketball action and there’s Ninja Gaiden: Razor’s Edge which includes lots of new touch-screen functionality.
