The recent Nintendo Direct revealed some awesome new Bayonetta 2 Wii U footage, but didn’t get too specific about a launch date. Now Nintendo and developer Platinum Games have gotten a bit more specific: Bayonetta 2 will launch in Japan this Summer, and later this year, us Westerners will get to enjoy it.
Bayonetta 2 is generating a lot of excitement among Nintendo fans and Wii U owners — it’s quite a departure from what Nintendo usually releases. Nintendo shocked many when they revealed that they had acquired the rights to the franchise, and perhaps even more surprising is that Bayonetta 2 will be rated Mature. Nintendo rarely, if ever, publishes Mature-rated games.
