Platinum Games’ Atsushi Inaba has taken to Twitter to voice his frustration at Anarchy Reigns’ delay in the West.
Inaba is not particularly happy about the announcement, however. He revealed that the delay is not due to extra development time being needed on the game, adding that SEGA’s announcement last night was the first he had heard of it.
“First of all, we are done with all international versions of Anarchy Reigns,” tweeted Inaba. “The delay is not due to further development on the game. Also, even though the release dates will be different, the content of both the Japanese and Western versions will be 100% the same.”
Perhaps most worryingly, Inaba went on to say, "Today's Q1 2013 release was the first we'd heard of it. Even if we wanted to, we can't comment as we're (still) in the dark officially."
The producer went on to confirm that the Japanese release of the game on July 5 remains unaffected, before apologising to fans.
“I want to sincerely apologize to all the fans worldwide for all the confusion this situation has caused. Even though we are the game’s developers, we can only do so much about this.”
He concluded by saying, “However, we hope you can continue to support Anarchy Reigns and look forward to playing it with us in the future. Thank you.”
