So. Bayonetta 2. Its official and I'm excited. How bout you? Yes? Of course you are. So what do we want to see from Bayonetta 2?

After the insanity that was the ending of Bayonetta where you PUNCHED the end boss into the sun with a giant hair monster how in earth can they top that insanity?

New weapons and what not obviously. I'm wondering if Jeanne might be playable from the start this time. It would be fun if you switched off and Jeanne played differently from Bayonetta. Trying to rack my brain for anything else I think would be cool but dunno. Even if its more of what Bayonetta was I think I'll be happy. It was just an insane thrillride.

Unless they put it on another console i won't be able to play it.
The first is one of my favorite games this generation, Xbox and Playstation owners helped make Bayonetta a success, we are rewarded with a WiiU sequel, i am not amused.

If it continues to be a WiiU exclusive I am just going to forget this game will/even exist/s.

#4 Posted by Demoskinos (14822 posts) -

@cikame: SEGA cancelled the game. Nintendo saved it. We would have never seen it period if not for Nintendo.

It was either Wii U or nothing, from the look of things.

This is the most out of left field thing I could think of for the wii-u

This. I'm glad someone 'saved' this game. I'm not glad it's Nintendo. I really want to play it. I could not possibly give less of a fuck about the WiiU..

#8 Posted by Sarumarine (2238 posts) -

I'm still trying to wrestle with my feelings for Bayonetta 2 as a Wii U exclusive. My initial impression was total shock, I know that much.

...but if I had to speculate my hopes and dreams for the game, I'm going to say I hope some Anarchy Reigns characters show up for some inexplicable reason to return the love for Bayonetta's appearance as a guest fighter. A boss fight with Rin Rin and her sisters would be awesome. Either that or a fight with Jack Cayman would be cool. They could be bonus boss fights that have no bearing on the plot. I think that would be sweet.

Honestly I'm not sure what to expect from a Bayonetta sequel. Platinum Games were never in the business of sequels, so I'm not sure how they could possibly make it crazier or more ridiculous. More fights defying gravity would be cool.

#9 Posted by KingBroly (1645 posts) -

@FluxWaveZ: Pretty much. People have said it got cancelled because Sega was in trouble. Nintendo basically gave it a 1up...or Bottle Fairy...or whatever they have.

#10 Posted by amir90 (2156 posts) -

WHAT!? Bayonetta 2 is coming out?

Ohh, It's a Wii U exclusive?

bummer..

Maybe make the story make some sort of sense? Other then that I was very happy with Bayonetta, I would never imagine being able to get all the achievements in that game.

yep i love platnium but could care less about the wii u

#12 Posted by smokeyd123 (329 posts) -

I would LOVE, I REPEAT, LOVE to play this, but if it's a WiiU exclusive I just... can't. I have neither the money or the interest to buy a WiiU. Maybe they'll release it on other platforms later?

Please?

#13 Posted by Demoskinos (14822 posts) -

@amir90: Hell no. I want the story to be AS insane as last time.

#14 Posted by project343 (2823 posts) -

Bayonetta is probably my favourite action game (Devil May Cry, God of War, etc.), well, ever. This may force me to buy a WiiU.

#15 Edited by Wraxend (564 posts) -

My dream for Bayonetta 2 is the same as most people here, that it comes out on the PS3/360

Nintendo is the publisher. It almost certainly won't happen; not after Sega nearly killed it, apparently.
#17 Posted by Damodar (1385 posts) -

Great news, although there's no way I'm ever buying a Wii U, so I have mixed feelings about this. I've still actually not finished the first game yet. I have the PS3 version and that is such a god damn mess that I just stopped playing it, because the game deserves so much better than that. If I don't just borrow a 360, I'll probably end up buying one some day solely to play that game, which kind of depresses the crap out of me. The idea of the same situation with a Wii U is untenable.

I'm just going to pretend that this is going to bring about a Bayonetta renaissance and both games will come to the PC and I won't have to cry myself to sleep every night.

#18 Posted by ShaggE (6451 posts) -

I understand why it's a Wii U exclusive, but that doesn't change my utter dismay. :(

#19 Posted by SlightConfuse (3963 posts) -

there is a slim hope. ninja gaiden 2 and RE 4 were console exclusives that came out elsewhere

#20 Posted by FirePrince (1763 posts) -

Wii U exclusive?

Cool story bro.

That's not a possibility, as Kamiya-san is confirmed not to be the director.

#22 Posted by Milkman (16781 posts) -

My biggest hope? It gets ported somewhere else.

#23 Posted by TooWalrus (13195 posts) -

I'll buy a Wii U, but not a minute before Bayonetta 2 comes out. I seriously can't fuckin' wait. 
 
@Demoskinos: I prefer this part of the Bayonetta ending: 
  

  Seriously, I had the dumbest grin on face for hours after finishing that game- it's definitely one of my favorite games of this generation- and I can't really explain why.
#24 Posted by BraveToaster (12590 posts) -

It sucks that it's a WiiU exclusive, but it's cool that Nintendo kept the dream alive.

#25 Posted by Demoskinos (14822 posts) -

@TooWalrus: Hell yeah. Dance off. The music in the game was fantastic.

#26 Posted by altairre (1189 posts) -

Fuck you Nintendo! I'm still not going to buy your console.

#27 Posted by Chicken008 (365 posts) -

I don't understand all the Wii U hate. If the console has a game you really want to play, why not purchase it?

That's the only reason I'd buy a console.

#28 Posted by ervonymous (1297 posts) -

Bayonetta is the most satisfying gaming experience I've had this generation but I never felt like it needed a sequel, the fact that it'll be on a console I haven't the faintest interest in seals the deal. It'll be great regardless.

Playing it on Infinite Climax gave me the push I needed to start learning 1 frame link combos in SF4.

#29 Posted by Demoskinos (14822 posts) -

@ervonymous: Oh yeah. The timing was absolutely insane for some of the attacks if you REALLY wanted to dig into the game. Or you could put it on auto and mash a single button and do flashy shit and still feel okay about it if you weren't that skilled. Its the best game of its kind this gen. I'd say of all time but... I still like DMC 3 and Ninja Gaiden Black better.

#30 Posted by TeflonBilly (4713 posts) -

Aw shucky ducky quack quack! The witch is back!

Well played Nintendo. I might just get a Wii U a lot earlier than I thought now.

LOL at all the povs having a butthurt bitchfit with all their assfrustrations cause it's a Wii U exclusive. The internet is awash with delicious tears.

The teaser trailer shows an enemy against Bayonetta which doesn't seem all that angelic

I really don't know what to specifically wish for. I just want them to keep on chucking left turns at me so that I go around in a circle enough times.

I'd forgotten how well recieved Bayonetta actually was, I wish it sold more

The remix of the La Roux song used in that trailer is pretty ace too

From what I can gather, there's two reasons. One, most people don't find the idea of buying a console for the sole purpose of playing one game an appealing idea. Two, the original was released on both the 360 and PS3, a console which a lot of people already own. To my knowledge, the WiiU is slightly more powerful than the two, but not so much so that developing a game on the platform means you can't have it on the other consoles as well.

#32 Posted by Hizang (8532 posts) -

Hey guys, the console you were not going to get has a game on you you really want. Guess somewhere along the lines this makes owning a Wii U awesome.

#33 Posted by StarvingGamer (8227 posts) -

As long as they don't fuck up the mechanics, I'll be happy as a pig in shit.

#34 Posted by LikeaSsur (1529 posts) -

I don't care that Nintendo saved it. I will not buy a whole system for just one game (and at this point in time, that's the only game that seems halfway interesting to me).

#35 Posted by RedCream (705 posts) -

So a system seller then?

#36 Posted by Zirilius (636 posts) -

Remember guys at one point Ninja Gaiden was published by Microsoft.

#37 Posted by falserelic (5436 posts) -

Exclusive to the Wii U, yeah well that's not going to workout for me.

#38 Posted by Meteor_VII (125 posts) -

So is it being published by Nintendo? If so I guess yea its only going to be on wii-u. Like how Mass Effect 1 was never going to be on anything else. I am in the camp of this is lame, I played Bayonetta on 360 and really want to play this but spending 300 right before having to probably spend another 300+ on one of the two consoles next year that are going to have better visually, and more ip's I will want to play. Hard to make it work out.

#39 Posted by Demoskinos (14822 posts) -

@TeflonBilly: That song got me to check out La Roux's other stuff and she is awesome! I love "Bulletproof"

#40 Posted by Yummylee (21615 posts) -

Just such a shame I could never get into the first Bayonetta, because I'm sure the gameplay is rather phenomenal. Unfortunately there was just... too much Japanese craziness for my liking.

This is a bit of a different situation, if you've been following it. Sega essentially killed Bayonetta 2. With Ninja Gaiden 2, they were pretty much in bed with one another to get it out before Metal Gear Solid 4. Nintendo reviving the game, and publishing it, is a lot different.

#42 Posted by PillClinton (3291 posts) -

Really not thrilled it's a Wii U exclusive, meaning I likely won't play it for quite a long time, if ever.

#43 Posted by Bane122 (789 posts) -

I really don't get all the anger. The game was seemingly dead, done, not gonna happen... now Nintendo revives it and people are mad? Isn't a Wii U sequel better than no sequel? Also, Nintendo is doing exactly what people have wanted them to for years, they're reaching out to core gamers again. We should be applauding them, not condemning. Frankly I hope it doesn't ever go to another console. If Nintendo is the one to see the worth in getting the game out, they should be the only one to benefit from it.

As for the game itself, man I don't even know. I've long said that a Bayonetta 2 without Kamiya would worry me some and it has. The perfect blending of great gameplay, humor, an insane story, tongue-in-cheek sexuality, and fantastic characters is one I've always attributed to him solely so hopefully I've been overestimating him just a little and the others can pull it of again. P+'s a pretty good studio overall so I have a bit of faith.

One thing for sure is it's going to be really hard to top the last one so I'm going to try and keep my expectations in line.

#44 Posted by McGhee (6094 posts) -

Add in some full frontal nudity and more dry humping. That would help.

#45 Posted by Phatmac (5726 posts) -

So what'll the story be in this game or will it just be crazy Japanese Umbra Hi-jinks?

I think you already know the answer to that.

She gets two more arms and two more legs and carries eight guns.

#48 Edited by jakob187 (21670 posts) -

Nintendo sealed the deal with this one for me. They rescued a game that they know people want? Specifically a sequel to one of my favorite games ever? Yeah, I'll definitely buy your goofball console for this.

It'll be worth every penny.

Also, I'm completely serious. There is not a single ounce of sarcasm oozing out of this. I know, that's odd for me...but it just happened.

I will seriously spend $400 for Bayonetta 2.

#49 Posted by Tennmuerti (8098 posts) -

Awww man a WiiU exclusive? Bummer :(

Not sure when if ever i will be persuaded to get a WiiU

One game (this one) is just not enough yet

Asura's Wrath crossover?
