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.
In what is one of the more interesting and surprising Wii U titles coming out this year, today’s Nintendo Direct presentation revealed that Platinum Games’ Bayonetta 2 will be releasing exclusively for the Wii U this October. To make matters even better, the game will come packaged with the complete first game, which was originally only available on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
In this game the bullet witch is on a mission to hell to save a friend, and along the way all matter of zany and cheesy madness ensues. The game will come with new abilities and weapons for Bayonetta to utilize, making her more deadly than ever before.

It was a pretty big deal when it was revealed that the sequel to Bayonetta would be getting a sequel that would release exclusively for the Wii U. Also, an RPG simply titled X is on the way for the system that is made from the creators of the cherished Xenoblade and Xenogears. These are two highly anticipated games for the system, but with hardly any more details being released since their announcement people began to wonder whether or not they would still meet their 2014 release dates.
Well, Nintendo has confirmed that both of the games are still slated for their original 2014 release window, with more information and probably concrete release dates being confirmed at this year’s E3.
It was revealed on the latest Nintendo Direct that Bayonetta 2 will be released sometime later this year exclusively for the Wii U, but no official release date has been announced. However, they did release a trailer for the game, which showcases all of the zany action and characters that fans would come to expect. Continue reading →
