Spider versed
Mar 13
Bayonetta 2 director Yusuke Hashimoto, daydreaming on Twitter, expressed interest in making some kind of Spider-Man, or "Spider-Verse," game. "If I had to work with an existing IP," Hashimoto said, "I'd want to make a game in... read

Platinum reveals meaning of Metal Gear Rising '2' logo


Much less exciting than any of us had hoped
Feb 25
Back in late January an image appeared for a split second during a Sony sizzle reel as part of a Twitch broadcast from Taipei Game Show. The image, a huge number two in what looked like the Metal Gear Rising: Revengence typef... read
Bayonetta demake

Platinum's 404 page is a cute little Bayonetta demake


How quickly can you mash the Enter key?
Feb 02
Instead of displaying a simple file-not-found message, the 404 page on Platinum Games' website holds a score-attack demake of Bayonetta. It's worth a moment of your day. The game is simplistic -- you jump and shoot at oncomin... read

Metal Gear Rising 2 might be a thing that's happening


Jack is (probably) back!

This image appeared for a split second in a Sony sizzle reel aired during a Twitch broadcast out of the Taipei Game Show. Sure does look like the typeface from Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance. Nothing is confirmed, of cou... read

What are you hoping for in the next Bayonetta game?


What will the greatest witch in gaming do next?
Jan 01
[Art by jnkboy] Bayonetta 2 won Destructoid's overall best game of the year award, its community choice award, and multiple personal game of the year awards. While I'm sure Platinum appreciates the praise, chances are that th... read

Bayonetta 2

FUGGETABOUTIT!!


Soundboards are still around?
Nov 10
What, no "If you need to learn how to talk to a lady, ask your mom"? At least this probably-old-but-new-to-me Bayonetta 2 soundboard has Enzo's catchphrase. I feel bad for making it to the end of the game before realizing he'd been left behind. What a goof. A foul-mouthed, lovable goof. read
Tetris effect

Bayonetta 2 is giving me the Tetris effect


Get outta my dreams
Nov 06
Bayonetta kicked my ass last week, but I finished it (after giving in and switching the difficulty setting to Easy). I survived Gracious and Glorious, and sent you-know-who hurtling into the you-know-what. Damn, what a cool g... read
Bayonetta

I didn't think I'd enjoy Bayonetta this much


Know your limits
Nov 03
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... read

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. read feature

Friday Night Fights: Witch time!


Game with the Dtoid community

Happy Friday! 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... read
A nice but brief romp with Korra and Naga
One of the biggest surprises of 2014 had to be the announcement of a Legend of Korra game, published by Activision and developed by Platinum Games. Yes, that Platinum Games -- the current master of action titles. It... read feature

Yep, I have no idea what this Bayonetta 2 trailer's all about


I'm so lost
Oct 09
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... read

This first "behind the scenes" video for Platinum's Legend of Korra game isn't great, but fans of Platinum's intense action fare might be happy to hear that there will be a high difficulty level just for them. Could've ... read

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... read feature

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. read feature

Is Pro-Bending a sport?

We're in a great point in technology that 2D properties can be faithfully represented in 3D instead of looking weird and uncanny. Platinum's Legend of Korra game looks pretty neat, even to someone who hasn't watched the... read

This Santa is blasé, this mob-man is terrified: Bayonetta 2 is wacky


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,... read
