Bayonetta 2 announced; Wii U exclusive

Bayonetta developer Platinum Games had previously stated that they’d love to make a sequel but it seemed that nobody wanted to fund it. In an unexpected turn of events, Nintendo has decided to take a risk and will be publishing Bayonetta 2 as a Wii U exclusive title. 

Whilst this may upset fans of the series who would have loved to see a sequel on the PS3 or Xbox 360, at least they can take comfort knowing that a sequel is coming because if Nintendo had not stepped in, plans for a sequel may have never seen the light of day. Nintendo, usually focusing on family friendly games, really are pushing to reel in the hardcore gamer crowd by securing titles like this to join the ever-growing list of Wii U games.

Bayonetta producer Yusuke Hashimoto will be directing the sequel and will be ensuring that the Platinum Games team get to make a true sequel that fans will love. Not much else has been revealed about the title so whether or not it will be seen in action with the Wii U features or will utilise a more familar controller pad is yet to be seen. Assumptions on the story are also up in the air but you may be able to glimpse something that we haven’t in the reveal trailer below:
