After a ton of detective work, users around the 'net spotted a peculiar image from the Wii U's upcoming release of Bayonetta. Specifically, it showed a locket containing special costumes from Link, Samus, and Peach, but there...

Working with Nintendo pushed Bayonetta 2 'to even higher quality,' says director

Nintendo hasn't bought Platinum Games (wouldn't that be an interesting development?) but the company is acting as publisher for Bayonetta 2, which has become one of the bigger Wii U games of this year. Speaking to CVG, direct...

What if other Nintendo characters had Bayonetta's proportions?

There are a lot of different ways to look at Bayonetta, as she manages to be many different things to many different people at the same time. Depending on what angle you're looking at her from, she could appear to be a sex ob...

Bayonetta Wii U-specific outfits empower Bowser kicks and visor flips

Bayonetta 2 is almost here, and from everything I've played, it seems to be a more consistently exuberantgame than the original. While the first game frequently toggled between serious face grim-darkness and light-hearted whi...

Bayonetta 2's 'Tag Climax' cooperative mode allows players to exterminate enemies together

Bayonetta 2 will be much more than just a solo affair. Nintendo has announced an additional cooperative mode known as "Tag Climax," which will allow two players to team up together and take on the many enemies in-game all for...

Original game not included with Bayonetta 2 Wii U eShop downloads

[Update: Oh good! "The original version of Bayonetta will be available via a digital download on eShop when you purchase Bayonetta 2 (either a box version or digital copy of the game)," says Nintendo. Glad that's settled.]...

Platinum Games once again sings the praises of Nintendo

Platinum Games producer JP Kellams recently spoke at UCF’s Center for Emerging Media, and reminded fans yet again that if it wasn't for Nintendo, Bayonetta 2 would not have existed. Kellams outright states, "...

Bayonetta 2 gets a new trailer with new characters

Sadly, nothing really substantial was discussed about Bayonetta 2 at today's Nintendo Direct (not even a release window other than "later this year"), but a new trailer was dropped that helps us get a better look at the game. All of the standard Bayonetta staples are here, including big boss battles, Witch Time dodging, and of course -- more surfing.

Should Bayonetta 2 have competitive or co-op multiplayer? photo
Should Bayonetta 2 have competitive or co-op multiplayer?
by Chris Carter

Bayonetta is one of my favorite action games of all time. Not only is it legitimately challenging even on hard mode (who would have thought), but it offers up that frame-perfect technical action you'd expect from a studio like Platinum Games, with a ton of weapon variety to boot.

Although we don't know much about Bayonetta 2, I'm still pretty excited given the team's pedigree, and the multiplayer mode has me intrigued. Going into 2014 and the inevitable release of more information on the sequel, I'm starting to wonder what Bayonetta would be like with another person.

Kamiya's Tweet about Bayonetta Wii U spurs fan campaign

Nintendo's announcement of Bayonetta 2 as a 2nd party Wii U exclusive was a big deal last year. Some fans immediately exploded with rage, demanding that the game also be brought to the PS3 instead. Now it seems those roles ha...

Bayonetta: Bloody Fate anime coming soon from Gonzo

[Warning: Trailer NSFW secondary to butt.] Bayonetta is quite the divisive character, embraced and/or loathed by feminists, sex perverts and feminist sex perverts alike. While her first game didn't do huge numbers, she'...

You can't talk about Bayonetta 2 without mentioning hair photo
You can't talk about Bayonetta 2 without mentioning hair
by Jordan Devore

The sheer spectacle of Bayonetta 2 has me on board for this Wii U exclusive, and that's to say nothing of the hair. Oh, that magnificent hair. It's everywhere!

It was getting late in our PAX Prime 2013 journey when Hamza and Jim recorded their thoughts on the new Platinum Games title, as you can probably tell, which is why their attempts to talk about the game resulted in strange words being uttered. The subject matter of Bayonetta 2 certainly wasn't making their job any easier.

CONFIRMED! Bayonetta's Enzo = Danny DeVito + Joe Pesci

If you play the original Bayonetta and don't immediately think of Joe Pesci the moment Enzo opens his mouth, you haven't been getting enough Vinny in your life. Some people find his manner of speech annoying, but like former ...
