The fact that Bayonetta 2 is going to be a Wii U exclusive is a bit strange, considering the game’s more mature themes and characters and the fact that the original was not on a Nintendo console at all. However, as fate would have it, now the sequel is a Wii U exclusive and it sounds like the developers of the game would love to continue to work with Nintendo exclusively going forward.
Speaking with CVG, Bayonetta 2’s director Yusuke Hashimoto said the following:
“In terms of nurturing the content of this game, there’s a lot that we learned from Nintendo and if possible we would love to do it again and keep nurturing our child.”
He goes on to discuss the positive relationship that he has with Nintendo and how their feedback has helped him and his crew improve the game:
“I feel that it’s important to let your creativity flow and Nintendo has been able to provide us with the freedom to create what we had originally envisioned. We were able to have a lot of back-and-forth and they were able to provide objective feedback. I feel that was really good and helped push Bayonetta 2 to even higher quality.”
Bayonetta 2 is set to release in October of this year exclusively for the Wii U.
