Bayonetta 2: Returning with a Few Surprises

/ Jul 24th, 2013 2 Comments

Bayonetta 2

[adsense250itp]Bayonetta 2 is bringing the familiar seductive form of the title character back to televisions everywhere with a few new surprises in 2014. With gorgeous imagery and the return of the sexy title character, the game promises to give fans more of what they love when it comes to the series; a sexy character and the chance to take their aggression out on twisted creatures with all sorts of weapons…and flexibility. Bayonetta now features a serious new change to her wardrobe and signature hairstyle. While the shorter hair style does gives her a more mature look, Nintendo promises that it will not be the end to her hair-based attacks. Bayonetta also gets to keep her signature guns but with a new series of viciously stylish moves.

Bayonetta 2 surprised many players at the 2013 E3 convention with its surprisingly smooth gameplay and stunning visuals running on the Wii U. Blood rains down from the sky and heaven is about to tear itself apart, all before you even can battle heavenly opponents on top of a plane or a speeding train. Vicious torture attacks keep things interesting as Bayonetta pushes angelic creatures up against something that looks like a bladed treadmill or into a magic guillotine. While the last game focused on the favored witch fighting mostly angels, Bayonetta 2 gives the player a chance to face demons as well.

Play is lightening fast and shockingly enough, Nintendo’s Wii U keeps up the pace with frenetic gameplay. The game is fully supported for the Wii U’s GamePad as well, so players are able to use the game when a television is not available. Giving fans a minor taste of what a portable Bayonetta would be like (please do not play the game in the toliet). For fans afraid of the sheer amount of button mashing involved, Bayonetta 2 also supports touchscreen play with the Wii U stylus. The new stand-alone two player option allows players to fight off vicious attacks as either the titular Bayonetta or as the red-suited rival from the previous game, Jeanne. Platinum Games has not gone into much more detail about this two player mode, but promises to make more details available in the future.

Bayonetta 2 is designed exclusively for the Nintendo Wii U. The Platinum Games cult favorite can credit Nintendo with  the survival of the Bayonetta franchise. After its initial release, many fans of the game did not expect to see the return of the raven haired gun wielder. The previous game was released originally for the Xbox 360 and then later broguht over to the PlayStation 3 (poorly unfortunately. Thanks, Sega). Nintendo’s decision to publish the sequel to Bayonetta makes this exclusive release on such a limited platform a bit of a shock for players who want experience some more bewitching action without having to purchase a new console. As a Nintendo published title, there is a infinitesimal chance of the game being ported to other consoles. Time will tell if this loyalty in partnering with Nintendo for both Bayonetta 2 and The Wonderful 101 will be a wise move for Platinum Games. However, anything that allows Platinum to make more games can never be truly terrible (also, the new partnership is a weirdly cool return for Platinum to a Nintendo console after their first game MadWorld was a Wii exclusive). Bayonetta 2 is expected to release sometime in 2014 for the Nintendo Wii U.
