Bayonetta

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...

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,...

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...
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 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...

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, "...
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.
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...
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...
[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'...
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...
Nintendo has enlisted Platinum Games in its endeavor to provide the Wii U with unique exclusives such as The Wonderful 101 in order to entice the ever-elusive core gamer. The match may seem like an odd one, consider...
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 ...
Bayonetta 2 has the potential to do what most sequels set out to do -- meet the approval of existing fans while being appreciated by a new audience. It feels more confident in it's own inherently brazen nature, and less inter...
Bayonetta 2 will have a two-player mode, according to our own Hamza Aziz who is reporting a bit from a Nintendo event. Aside from the note that there will be a lot more aerial combat in the game in general, there wasn't anyth...

Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor's Edge is going multi-platform, and no one's all that bothered. Rayman Legends is going multi-platform, and that bit of news is met with slightly more perturbation. Whatever your opinion on any individua...
Monday has once again arrived, so you know the drill: it's another week of new releases. We're leaving January behind in a somewhat subdued fashion, but there's certain to be something that will catch your eye. Skulls of the...
Platinum Games fans, rejoice! Bayonetta will be coming to the PlayStation Network on January 30 for $19.99. It's safe to assume that this version will be the patched version of the PS3 game, due to the fact that the base vers...
Although Platinum Games' new trailer for Bayonetta 2 doesn't show any gameplay, instead focusing on some enemy designs, concept art, and Bayonetta's legs, it's worth watching for fans of the original. Throughout the video, v...
Another year, another round of videogame controversies! 2012 was perhaps one of the biggest years ever for scandal and strife, filled with sexism, lies, and ... Doritos?  We've compiled the most outrageous outrages of th...
I'm pretty sure I was here exactly a year ago, telling you about just how excited I was that Anarchy Reigns was coming in January. Well, it didn't exactly turn out that way, and for a majority of this year the release of the...
After over a year of mindgames, it appears as if the dawn of Anarchy Reigns is finally upon us. In addition to launching at a respectable $30, it'll also have a few pre-order content exclusives. For pre-ordering the game, you...
I'm going to be upfront with you guys and admit that this may be Mega64's worst videos ever. It's not funny at all, just really morbid and forced. Not that I don't agree that reactions over Bayonetta 2's Wii U exclusivity ar...
The announcement of Bayonetta 2 as a Wii U exclusive is destined to go down as one of the big "betrayals" of gaming history, right up there alongside Final Fantasy VII on the PS1. So-called "fans" of the original Bayonetta we...
The Destructoid Show was LIVE today with fanciful fun and magical treasures for everyone, and blah blah something something, I don't know -- it's Friday why are you making me write these sentences. If you missed it, the Wii U...
Tatsuya Minami, President & CEO of Platinum Games, reached out to fans via their website to try to explain why Bayonetta 2 is a Wii U exclusive title. He says he realizes that the announcement may have shocked some f...

[Every Friday (or whenever), Destructoid will pose topical a question to the community. Answer it if you want!] Atlus recently put out a trailer for the 3DS beat 'em up Code of Princess, and reactions were generally positive,...
