Platinum Games has revealed another character from its multiplayer brawler, Anarchy Reigns, and more importantly, his weapon – the Tesla Blitz.

Nikolai is a learned man of refinement, who just happens to sport a reactor on his back, as reported by the Sega America Blog, which allows him to send massive electrical currents down his arms.

As you’ll see in the trailer and screens below, he puts this infernal device to excellent use.

Anarchy Reigns is the fifth product of a deal between Bayonetta and Vanquish developer PLatinum and publisher Sega. It’s due on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in the second half of the year.
