One of the most high profile Wii U exclusives since it was announced almost two years ago, Bayonetta 2's international release date is set for the end of October and there is still new information on the game. As revealed in a new Nintendo Direct, the game not only features a third playable character that's yet to be named, but also some surprising extras for Nintendo fans. Yes, your dreams of seeing Bayonetta dressed up as a spacefox have finally come true.
The developer, Platinum Games, already showed off special costumes for the Wii U version of the original Bayonetta that included Princess Peach, Samus, and Link costumes. Those outfits have now been confirmed for Bayonetta 2 as well, with one bonus costume: Star Fox. Referred to as "Space Mercenary," the Fox McCloud costume is exclusive to the sequel, outfitting Bayo in the trademark helmet, flight jacket, and green pants. To cement its place as stupendously silly fan service, the costume even replaces Bayonetta's standard bullets with green lasers Fox famously uses in the Smash Bros. games.
As for the third playable character, that would be Rodin, the helpful bartender from the first game. He joins Bayonetta and Jeane for the new co-op mode called Tag Climax. Keep an eye out for more info on that in the lead-up to the US and Europe release date of October 24. Until then, soak in these awesome screens from the game.
