Damn it all! I was really hoping to get my murderous hands on Bayonetta before the year was out, but it seems that Platinum Games' sexy and ludicrous action title won't coming to the roundeye countries until January of next year. Sega has confirmed that it'll ship in 2010, meaning we'll just have to sit tight and wait.
Japan will be enjoying the game on October 29th, along with a sweet pre-order bonus CD. That said, this is probably a very wise decision on the part of Sega. There will be very little competition after Christmas, with most publishers shooting their loads in November for the run-up to Christmas. January 2010 is a very sensible release window, and hopefully it leads to this game doing well.
From what I've played of the game, Bayonetta definitely deserves success. It's just going to be an excruciating wait.
