Anarchy Reigns' New Fighter Nikolai is Electrifying

It's not hard to see where Platinum Games got the inspiration for its new Anarchy Reigns character, Nikolai with his huge lightning dispensing Tesla gauntlets. Erm, Nikolai Tesla, anyone? Clearly, the scientist is the inspiration for the new fighter, but the name and electromagnetism is where the similarities end.
In Anarchy Reigns, Nikolai is another hulking man mountain with huge gauntlets designed with the express purpose of pummeling opponents with electrifying punches in mind. Blam! Zap! Ouch! It looks like he'll easily be able to hold his own against Jack, Big Bull, Sasha, Blacker Baron, Zero and Mathilda.
Check out the usual character trailer, piece of character art and two screenshots to go with the Nikolai announcement. Anarchy Reigns is scheduled for release in autumn 2011.
