Bayonetta: Bloody Fate DVD review

Bayonetta: Bloody Fate DVD review
Bayonetta: Bloody Fate manages to retain the over-the-top nature of the videogame with a lot of action, crazy lines and fun references (yes, we do see her start up a motorcycle in that way). From Gonzo and director Fuminori Kizaki of Afro Samurai, Bloody Fate is a somewhat loose adaptation of Platinum Games’ videogame, which was released back in 2009, as the Umbran witch Bayonetta awakens after 500 years to retrieve her lost memories. Opening with... 

Bayonetta 2 – An online co-op mode, First Print edition and release date for Europe

Bayonetta 2 – An online co-op mode, First Print edition and release date for Europe
There’s over the top and then there’s Bayonetta, with the latest Nintendo Direct being a special presentation that focused solely on the upcoming sequel Bayonetta 2. It featured PlatinumGames director Yusuke Hashimoto and producer Akiko Kuroda as they talked about the game’s characters, story, combo moves, weapons, as well as revealing the game’s release date. One of the new features focused upon was Tag Climax, an online co-op mode... 

Nintendo’s E3 2014 Digital Event: Information and recap

Nintendo’s E3 2014 Digital Event: Information and recap
With a hilarious opening skit in stop-motion animation, Nintendo definitely did not fail to make a statement and keep players entertained throughout the course of their E3 Digital Event this week. The company packed a variety of gaming information, first looks, previews and comedy scenes into the 46 minute stream which ended up being more than enough to redeem Nintendo after their somewhat disappointing course after the release of the Wii U console.... 

Bayonetta 2 Trailer Asks, “Did You Miss Me?”

Bayonetta 2 Trailer Asks, “Did You Miss Me?”
The latest Nintendo Direct revealed a new trailer for Platinum Games’ Bayonetta 2 for the Wii U. Outlandish over-the-top action is expected, but it also offers a little in the way of story. It appears that Bayonetta is travelling to the Mountain of Thimble Venter to rescue Jeanne. Those who have seen the E3 trailer (or played the demo) will note that Jeanne’s soul ends up dragged down to Inferno. In the latest trailer we hear Enzo explain that... 

Bayonetta 2 Hands On Preview

Bayonetta 2 Hands On Preview
The demo of Platinum Games’ Bayonetta 2 available to play at MCM London Comic Con appears to be the same one that first appeared at E3 and has since been doing the rounds at many major events. Nevertheless her arrival at MCM means that attendees here can finally get their hands on… the Umbra witch. It’s been a while since I’ve had to contend with Bayonetta and the change of a PS3 controller to a Wii U one does take a bit of getting used to,... 

Bayonetta: Bloody Fate Anime Adaptation to Arrive this November

Bayonetta: Bloody Fate Anime Adaptation to Arrive this November
Platinum Games’ Bayonetta video game is to receive an anime film adaptation to be produced by the animation studio Gonzo. Titled Bayonetta: Bloody Fate, it will open in Japan on 23 November and will see a limited release in just ten movie theatres, running for two weeks only. That this announcement comes around two months before its release would suggest that the film is most likely already close to completion.  The film is directed by Fuminori... 

Five Characters I Want To See In The Next Smash Bros.

Five Characters I Want To See In The Next Smash Bros.
At last year’s E3 conference, Nintendo announced they would be releasing two more Super Smash Bros. games, one for the Wii U and one for the 3DS. But, with no information at this year’s E3 and Masahiro Sakurai (the series’ creator) recently stating that he’s only just started work on it, it seems unlikely that it will be arriving anytime soon. This doesn’t mean that the internet isn’t bristling with anticipation though. Nintendo’s... 

Bayonetta 2 – Saviour of the Wii U?

Bayonetta 2 – Saviour of the Wii U?
Two weeks ago the Wii U was not looking so hot. With two E3‘s under its belt Nintendo‘s new console seemed to be failing to impress even long time Nintendo fans. We didn’t know when it was coming, how much it would cost, or what games we would be playing on it at launch. Then came the September Nintendo Direct Presentations, providing answers to some of the important questions and giving us things to look forward to. Now pre-orders... 

Darksiders II Review

Darksiders II Review
With the talk of Darksiders II being a launch title for Nintendo’s upcoming Wii U console, we decided to look and see how the game fared on the Xbox 360/PS3. Vigil Games’ Darksiders was released in 2010 to lukewarm reviews and accusations to the game simply being a Zelda clone. However what Darksiders did best was take inspiration from other games and blend them into each other to make a truly memorable title. Darksiders’ problem was that while... 

Bayonetta 2 announced; Wii U exclusive

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...
