Bayonetta 2 trailer shows gameplay, haircut and 2014 release

Bayonetta 2 for Wii U will be released in 2014 according to a special E3 broadcast of Nintendo Direct. A new CG trailer and gameplay trailer were both shown (see below), in which Bayonetta's new haircut was revealed. Yep, it's now short and spiky, like Zoe Wanamaker, but also with Bayonetta's trademark lengthy locks still intact in order to execute her brutal 'Megaton' finishing moves on bosses.

The gameplay trailer shows a boss fight on the top of a moving train, as well as some familiar-looking platform leaping in thy sky. Platinum Games' trademark directorial flair is also evident: look out for Bayonetta fireing a barrage of bullets at an assailant, which a slow-motion camera pan reveals to be in a heart formation. Looking great, but 2014 is quite the wait...

    There will be no port to other systems. 0% chance. You will see Bayonetta 2 X Nintendogs crossover on 3DS before you see Bayonetta 2 on non Nintendo systems. Nintendo didn't just pay for some exclusivity deal...Nintendo paid for the game to get made. Bayonetta 2 ONLY EXISTS because of Nintendo. Buy a WiiU and play it or don't buy a WiiU, don't play Bayonetta 2, and bitch because there is never a Bayonetta 3 on anything because nobody bought it.

    anyone want to predict (or hope) the possibility of this going multiplat? I'll start low, but still likely. 35% chance.

    Chances of this going multiplat are zero. Since Nintendo is publishing this themselves I doubt they will let the competition have it.

    I want that game soo much.I can't buy a wiiU for one game though.
  • taokaka - June 11, 2013 8:41 a.m.

    I could see myself getting a wii U just for this.

    Well colour me excited. Glad it stayed Wii U exclusive as nintendo don't seem to be doing anything to try and butcher it. And it needs these kinds of exclusives. Nicceee

    Thats one hell of a gameplay trailer! I'm still not convinced enough to buy a WiiU, but I'm glad the Bayonetta franchise is alive and kicking. Who knows, maybe there will be a PS4 / XBone port some way down the road?
