Know your limits
Fighting angels as a witch dressed up like Samus Aran is a fun way to spend an evening.
I'm several years late to playing Bayonetta, a game I might have never sought out had Nintendo and Platinum not packaged it in with its W...
Prototypes! Insensitive Mario! Easy Bayonetta Unlock!
[Update: The art above is a mock up from fan artist Kibbles and is not official art from Platinum as originally reported. Sorry for the mistake, and thanks to Edutena for pointing it out.]
Sometimes a game takes a while to fi...
I've got a fever, and the only cure is more dead angels
Outside of Devil May Cry 3, Bayonetta is one of the finest action games of all time. The action systems were so clean, so precise, and so rewarding that it leaves pretty much everything these days in the dust.
Bayonetta 2 doesn't change a whole lot, and that's perfectly okay with me.
Game with the Dtoid community
I almost can't believe that it's actually here. Bayonetta 2, a game that nobody thought we'd ever see, has officially launched here in the states for the Wii U. After playing through the demo almost a dozen time...
I'm so lost
Look, I'm not the type of guy that would lie to you. I wouldn't feign expertise in something I know nothing about. Today, that something is Bayonetta 2, as this launch trailer makes very little sense to me.
This is all givin...
'Ask for Mario and Zelda too'
As we draw closer to the international release date for Bayonetta 2, a lot of people continue to bring up the exclusivity deal. "Will we get it one day on other platforms," people ask constantly, hoping that one day it will s...
Thirty minutes of Bayonetta
I'm still surprised that Nintendo is pushing Bayonetta 2 as hard as it is when Wonderful 101 matched their brand effortlessly, and they barely promoted it. As I've said in the past, every time I've seen this game d...
September 4th at 3PM PST
If you're interested in Bayonetta 2, you may want to clear your schedule for tomorrow afternoon. Nintendo has just announced that there will be a special Bayonetta related Nintendo Direct, held at 3PM PST on September 4t...
That snake part was crystal clear, though
Minor confession to make: I haven't played Bayonetta. Yeah, I hear it's good, but I just never got around to it. It happens. Heading into a quick hands-on session with Bayonetta 2, I figured my inexperience wouldn't matter much.
Wow, was I ever wrong. Now a few hours removed from the demo, my head's still spinning from trying to discern exactly what the hell just happened.
Nintendo has sent word that Bayonetta 2 will be hitting the Wii U on October 24th. In case you haven't heard of it yet, she'll also gain access to a new "snake transformation" that will let her navigate water, and of cou...
Finding the opposite of angels
Bayonetta 2 sound designer Daisuke Sakata touched on how he goes about designing sounds for his games in a recent post on the PlatinumGames blog. In particular, Sakata talks about the presence of both angel and demon enemies...
Sega's music label Wave Master has announced that Bayonetta 2 will be getting a five-disc mega soundtrack, which is very much inline with Platinum Games' previous releases. It'll drop on October 29, and the lead composer...
Now let me demonstrate...
I've got this feeling and it's deep in my body. It gives me wiggles and it makes my rump shake. It's called "looking at these Bayonetta 2 screens."
That's why I'm so tickled about this latest batch, but honestly I'm about rea...
As an anime fan growing up, dubs were often hit or miss. Not a whole lot of companies took their dubwork seriously, and often times, I'd resort to subtitles to get my anime fix. But over the years, pretty much every major co...
New details have been announced for Bayonetta 2's multiplayer mode, and it all sounds pretty great. First off, online play is confirmed, as is the ability to play with friends or with a CPU (loving that last option in this on...
So hardback for these guides
A new Amazon listing has confirmed that both Bayonetta 2 and Hyrule Warriors will be receiving hardcovers guides published by Prima Games.
The Hyrule Warriors guide will feature a bonus section with behind-the-scenes material...
Look at his face!
The choice between badass Santa and comically scared mob boss for the header image was a hard one. The Santa thing is a bit trite, I guess, but he wins out. Still, look at that guy's face.
Bayonetta 2 looks insane,...
Do you wanna touch me?
Concerned over how you're going to pick up Bayonetta in addition to its sequel when it finally hits the Wii U? Not sure how you want to purchase the game so that you'll get a copy of the first game? Worry no more -- at least,...
Oh-oh-oh-oh, Miss Bayonetta~!
If you were concerned that the dulcet tones of Bayonetta and the rest of the gang were going to change drastically with the release of the anime feature Bayonetta: Bloody Fate, you can breathe a sigh of relief. FUNimation has...
In addition to Peach, Samus, and Link
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...
"Do you want to touch me?"
I mean, I wanna touch Bayonetta 2. I need my hands all over it. I can't wait much longer for its release, and we've already covered climaxing together. Here's something to keep you going while ...
Platinum 'learned a lot from Nintendo'
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...
'Leggy leggy leggy leggy'- Murray
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...
Sequel pack-in bonuses add extra flair
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...
The Bayonetta anime -- titled "Bloody Fate" -- is a thing, and now we know that it's coming to the US and Canada due to Funimation's international distribution rights acquisition. There's no date set, but it's definitely...
You should never have to climax alone
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...
[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.]...
The publisher is thanked again for saving Bayonetta 2
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, "...
'Did you miss me?'
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.
All we know right now is that it supports two players
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 lik...
