I think I remember reading that the writing and voice acting for the game was actually done in English first. I wonder if that means that the developers consider the English Bayonetta to be their ideal version of the character.

It's just crazy over the top and ridiculous and that's what I love about it.

@xyzygy: Platinum makes everything in English first as far as I know, pretty obvious from their design styles. Bayonetta would be an 8 year old girl if it was targetted toward a Japanese audience.

Anime News Network's ANNCast did an interview with Johnathan Klein, who led the Bayonetta anime dub. They go into Platinum's VA work and confirms that Bayonetta is written in English first then re-translated back to Japanese. It's at the 19m30s mark.

@patrickklepek: That's not his real name, unless you consider your real name to be "H. Sapiens Sapiens." All this means is that Jeff is right and that yoshis are so disposable they don't even have names. The name Yoshi is the equivalent of naming a cat " Cat."

Legaia is one of my favourite RPG battle systems and has the oddest commercial to go with

I've tried playing with the Xbox One d-pad with Killer Instinct and I can say it plays more comfortably than the Xbox 360 d-pad. If I had to say what the Xbox One d-pad feels the most like, its like playing Super Street Fighter 4 on the small 3DS d-pad (not the XL)

One more reason I'm disappointed with 3DS region lock. I'd love to play more 3DS rhythm games after importing so many on the DS.

Holy shit, new vita design? With LCD instead of OLED??????

Wait did they say LCD instead of OLED? Because if so....isn't that kind of a big downgrade?

The LCD switch is probably for saving space and that extra hour battery life.

As cool as the new announcements are, the stage lighting is making the people look very depressed.

Who the fuck told Nintendo that the clam shell (one of the best handheld models ever) was the issue with the 3ds? Seriously fess up.

I imagine stockholders. Fewer separate pieces means lower cost of production, meaning more profit for investors. And the club Nintendo surveys probably contributed to the 2DS with people answering "I don't use the 3D in the game".
