Bayonetta 3 could be a Wii U exclusive as well, says developer

Bayonetta-2

Bayonetta 2 isn’t even out yet, but developer Yusuke Hashimoto already has high hopes for a third installment under the Nintendo exclusivity umbrella. In a recent interview with CVG, Hashimoto confirmed that he’d love to continue the franchise under Nintendo’s umbrella and that the publisher has been more than understanding in terms of getting the game perfect for fans.

Should the opportunity arise I’d definitely like to keep nurturing this franchiseIn terms of nurturing the content of this game, there’s a lot that we learned from Nintendo and if possible we would love to do it again and keep nurturing our child.

Hashimoto also had high praise for Nintendo as a publisher, stating that the company let his team work with complete creative freedom and only stepped in with minor suggestions that weren’t initially apparent to the team working so close to the project.

I feel that it’s important to let your creativity flow and Nintendo has been able to provide us with the freedom to create what we had originally envisioned. We were able to have a lot of back-and-forth and they were able to provide objective feedback. I feel that was really good and helped push Bayonetta 2 to even higher quality.

“We started out with a fundamental freedom, with Nintendo telling us to go and create the game as we saw fit. But as the game started to take shape and we were starting to put all the pieces together, they were able to point out some things that we didn’t realise ourselves. That was really helpful for us.

Bayonetta 2 will be released in October on Wii U, including a copy of the original game whether you buy it through retail or digital channels.

  • ActivesiN

    well if Nintendo fans buy Bayonetta 2, and support Platinum games maybe we will get Bayonetta 3

    • Andrew Clear

      Nintendo should just buy Platinum Games, which would end stupid crap like their new game going to every console but the Wii U (even though, it is a kids game, which would flourish on the Wii U).

      • ActivesiN

        yeah that would be awesome, Platinum make amazing games

      • Virus6

        I’m assuming you aren’t talking about that game called Scalebound by Platinum… which is NOT a kids game.

        • https://www.imthegoddamnbatman.com Gamer Mania

          He’s talking about the new Korra game.

          • Jason

            Well, if you look at the ratings, more adults watch Korra than kids. That’s why Nick is treating the show like crap, because it’s not rating well with 2 year olds.

          • JudgeMethos

            It’s an awesome show. Awesome animation. Great characters. Animated bliss.

      • https://www.imthegoddamnbatman.com Gamer Mania

        Then wouldn’t that make Scalebound on Xbox One cancelled and released on Wii U instead if that happened?

        • Dividesby_Zero

          I believe what would happen is Scalebound would still come out on X1 since Nintendo would have to honor any contracts already in place. Same with any other games being published by anybody that’s not Nintendo. After those games are released, then Nintendo can have all the Platinum Games games they want.

      • MerryBlind .

        What’s their new game coming to every console but the Wii U? I heard about ScaleBound on X1, but that’s it.

        • Petri

          Its game by Activision, PG has no voice in these things, they do as the publisher tells them. MS is publishing scalebound I think.

          • MerryBlind .

            Oh! That’s right. Legend of Korra or something like that. The Avatar anime. Could actually be pretty good!

  • Decker Shado

    Bayonetta 3: Revenge of the Port-Beggers
    (with season pass Sour Grapes DLC!)

    • Christopher McNair

      Compared to the majority of games Nintendo fans beg for, you really must be ignorant to “brag” about just one.

      • Decker Shado

        I see you got the season pass.

      • Patrick Smith

        Nintendo fans don’t beg for ports of exclusives, just multiplats that hit every other console. Theres a world of difference. #rekt

      • Capt. Smoker

        Most Nintendo fans don’t care for anything other than Nintendo games and exclusives, even when they go Playstation, they’ll probably go with Vita, because their a unique bunch with unique taste for unique games, no need to beg for bang average games.

    • kentray1985

      What a fan boyish comment!

      • JudgeMethos

        Not really. There will be some fans that’ll start bitching again cuz Platinum games decided to stay under the Nintendo umbrella. It’s not like the game was a million seller anyway. Those guys are just gonna have to realize if Nintendo is footing the bill, it’s staying on their console.

        • kentray1985

          And what if bayonetta 2 dont sell well? How can you say that fans that dont own a wiiu should just face it and they are bitchin. These fans made bayonetta popular and many have played it and been waiting for a sequel.
          Bayonetta 2 will be good on the wiiu but it wont be pushing the graphics and framerate that a ps4 and xbox 360 can do. The wiiu is only working with 1gb of ram and a old gpu for their games so you couldnt possibly think bayonetta 2 could look better on the wiiu than on the ps4 and the xbox one.
          Im not a graphic junky and I can apreciate the great job platinum has done with bayonetta 2 for the wiiu which is why im picking it up day one. I can still understand why xbox and playstation fans are disappointed. These fans would have more to look foward to for a sequal say if the game came to the xbox one and the ps4. They have achievements/trophies, party chat, and better hardware that would expand the game making it a much longer and much prettier.

          Overall making bayonetta 2 a exclusive is like MS buying metroid and making it exclusive to xbox one. The same blow happen to Sony fans when tekken became available to 360 owners. Either way bayonetta 2 will be great on wiiu but you are just being a fan boy if you cant understand why xbox and playstation fans of bayonetta would be mad or upset over it being exclusive to a Nintendo console. Just like you and us Nintendo fans are waiting on a metroid for wiiu they were waiting for a sequel to bayonetta on current xbox and playstation consoles!

          • JudgeMethos

            Are you replying to me cuz youre not making sense AT ALL. If it doesn’t sell well, then it’s Nintendo’s loss. Duh. The first game on PS3 and 360 globally sold ALMOST 900,000 copies. It isn’t a million seller. Also, the fans should talk to MS & Sony because they both turned Platinum Games away when they were approached about Bayonetta 2. You said “Overall making bayonetta 2 a exclusive is like MS buying metroid and making it exclusive to xbox one.” That makes NO SENSE at all. Nintendo offered to help Platinum Games fund the Bayonetta 2 AND PUBLISH it because Microsoft AND Sony didn’t want to. Platinum Games has gone on record and said that themselves! And it is NOWHERE NEAR like Microsoft buying Metroid. Are you crazy?! Nintendo is a FIRST party developer and will not sell THEIR IP to ANYONE. That’s a first party game. Platinum Games is a THIRD party and can put their games on any system. However, MS and Sony didn’t offer to help with Bayonetta 2 BECAUSE the first one didn’t sell all that great. They needed a publisher and Nintendo swooped in when the other two turned away. There’s NO WAY that can happen. Get your facts straight. And you have throwing out ‘fanboy’ like some child is showing how young you must be. I’m a FANBOY of games as I own All systems , a PC, and the handhelds. I understand ALL too well why MS & Sony fans are pissed but those SAME fans should be knocking MS & Sony for not offering to help Platinum when Bayonetta 2 was being shopped around looking for a publisher. MS cannot buy SONY or Nintendo’s 1st party games and vice versa. Your comparison makes no sense at all.

          • kentray1985

            I know MS cant buy metroid you douche and thats why I said what if. I now realize metroid was a bad example because it is a first party game but the point is that if MS bought exclusivity to one of your beloved nintendo 3rd party games you would be pissed. You would now have to dish out extra money to MS or Sony in order to play the rest of the series to that game. Now I know you probally wouldnt be as pissed since you said you have all the consoles but these Nintendo die hard fans would be smashing MS and Sony with blue turtle shells if that happened to a 3rd party game they loved on the wiiu.

            To give a better example of my point is if zombiu was bought by MS or Sony, renamed, and made as a direct sequel to the first game. I know me as a Nintendo fan would be kind of upset at that because Zombiu was a great game to me and so far had one of the best use of the wiiu gamepad.

          • JudgeMethos

            So, I’m a ‘douche’ because you gave a LAME example? Ooooookay, I was right…. you HAVE to be a kid becaue you’re not comprehending the obvious. You still don’t get it. MS & Sony PASSED on Bayonettea 2. P A S S E D. They didn’t want ANYTHING to do with it. They declined to help. They weren’t thinking of the 800,000+ fans that played the first one. NOTHING. Nintendo is PAYING the favors therefore by default, it’s there EXCLUSIVE. No matter how much you try and spin it, that’s how this business works. IT did not SELL that great. Two platforms combined got less than a mill. IF Nintendo had not stepped in, there wouldn’t EVEN BE A BAYONETTA 2! Understand yet? Jeez.

          • kentray1985

            You are a kid with all this ranting you’re doing when im just stating my opinion. Yes you are a douche for trying to be politically correct instead of just understanding my point which is that you shouldnt talk sideways about fans that are upset about bayonetta 2 being exclusive even if MS and Sony did turned the game down. Alot of ppl that already know this was ranting to both Sony and Microsoft on twitter. You are just being one of those argumentive fan boys that loves to drive their opinions through others like a spear. Im not here trying to bash you but you are acting like a kid. Im 28 going on 29 by the way since you feel the need to know!

          • JudgeMethos

            It’s Once actually your opinion. Im educating you on the facts. Once again, only kids whine and call folk ‘fanboys.’ Very childish. Grown men DON’T do that. How am I a “fanboy” when I own and play ALL systems? Hmm? By definition, fanboys wave the flag of ONE competitor, not all of them. Grow up. I’ve ALREADY said I understand what those folk feel like, kid. I have part one on the 360 as I ALREADY stated. I’m ranting? Actually, I’m responding to your lengthy bitch sessions. I don’t talk ‘sideways’ as that sounds retarded. You’re 28? Then that’s sad that you sound like a whining 12 year old tryin to prove a lame point about gamers having a reasons to be upset over something they have no control over. News flash: THOSE ARE FANBOYS COMPLAINING! I’m a FANBOY of G A M E S. I’ve already said that. I don’t pick one over the other as they ALL have something good to offer. And no, I do not need to know your age. I never asked. Grow up, junior. This is gettin sad.

          • kentray1985

            You sound so pathetic and cheesy! Once again you dont understand a reasonable point and worst you reply with a whole bunch of garbage about someone growing up yet you make a lengthy comment bashing those kids which are gamers like your pathetic ass. I was just trying to educate you but have a nice day Ass hole.

          • JudgeMethos

            You need help with comprehension and to learn to stop being so sensitive. May God bless you, too. You’re gonna need it, Mr. “28” year old

          • kentray1985

            You got to be like 14 years old acting all grown up. I feel bad for even going down to your level of stupidity. I know you will reply back to me with a insult so in advance kiss rocks you little bastard lol

          • Capt. Smoker

            Sorry mate, but if Nintendo are paying for it and it only exists because of that reason, fans should be grateful and buy a Wii U, if they really loved the franchise that much it shouldn’t be a big deal, so I can’t understand port beggars at all, I see no problem with the Wii U hardware, and most games on the Wii U have had better framerate than any other console out there, I think Platinum know how to utilize the system, and it doesn’t sound like they’ve been rushed so I see no issues arising, going off what I saw with the Wonderful 101, I’m expecting a wonderful game ^^ that’s just my take on it, and if the developer himself is taking jabs at port begging, then, it just sounds like their all a bunch of spoilt entitled gamers, you buy the consoles for the games you want, simple as that.

          • kentray1985

            Like I told the last guy, the game will look good on the wiiu and no doubt be a fun game. The fact in the matter is that bayonetta started on Sony and Microsoft platforms. Those platforms have expanded to more powerful hardware than the wiiu and thats just is what it is. Its a lost for fans of the first game that wanted to see those sequals on those powerful consoles. Of course these fans should just deal with it and buy the wiiu if they love the game that much and they wouldnt be disappointed because of all the great titles landing on the wiiu this year. As for the wiiu being powerful its not that far from the last gen consoles and devs only have 1gb of ram to work with vs the 8gb of ram in both Sony and Microsoft systems. I myself would love to see what bayonetta 2 would look like on those consoles and running on my pc with ultra setting. Oh well it doesnt matter to me because im still picking it up day one and it will still be a upgrade from the one on last gen consoles.

          • Capt. Smoker

            I started reading down after I posted that, I didn’t like that he was condescending, I can understand what your saying, I’d be pretty sad if one of my favourite franchises suddenly moved from being available across most platforms and only available as an exclusive for another, it be like a new Tales of Symphonia game coming out but only for PS4 and Xbox one, when the first 2 we’re only available on Gamecube and Wii originally, it’s shitty, but that’s business I guess.

            I never said the Wii U was powerful, it’s far from it, it’s definitely hit the ceiling with Xenoblade Chronicles X, I doubt we’d see many more games look as impressive is that, but for the kind of games it caters to, it’s got more than enough going for it, it’s a console that will most likely live and die with 80% exclusive games, but considering I’ll wind up with a PS4 eventually, it’s not really a problem, for me anyway, and I’d of probably picked up Bayonetta 2 on that if it was available.

            The Wii U is what it is, it isn’t a powerful next generation machine, it’s a means to an end, a console born and bread to run HD Nintendo games and a few exclusives from 3rd party developers, I knew that picking it up, just as I knew buying a Vita will only cater to my Jrpg needs, if people expected anymore than that, they really should of done their homework first. :)

          • kentray1985

            See alot of people thought Nintendo was thinking about the future and would have a powerful updated system that would go head to head with the Ps4 and the Xbox one. Nintendo kept alot of things silent like how the Nintendo ID would fully work or how you could invite friends to games. Many gamers so hyped for Nintendo when they showed of the wiius graphics with that zelda demo. That’s mainly why the wiiu didn’t sell good because the bad messaging and also a lack of games. Ive still havnt seen things that was used to promote the wiiu make its way into the wiiu as of yet. There are plenty of more things I can say that is just wrong with the wiiu but when it comes down to it, Nintendo will always deliver when it comes to their first party games. I still do think Mr.Iwata should be replaced with a more powerful president that understand that Nintendo has some of the best franchises in the industry and they really should bring us fans more content then a game or two each month or two. I cant believe they just re-elected that guy after all the bad and terrible decisions he made. The best thing ive seen him do for the hardcore fans was to sign a deal with Capcom to make some Resident Evil games. Why we have not seen star fox and metroid atleast running on the wiiu is all in the wind!

          • Capt. Smoker

            I’m really not fan of Mr Iwata, he seems content to just squeeze every penny, even knowing full well any Nintendo game franchise or anything exclusive would sell, I think his visions for the future are small, that was evident in the Wii, great console by all means, but a real eye sore next to the ps3 and 360, had it been at least HD, I think it would have probably sold even more and had more interest n it, the Wii U really isn’t a bad device, I say device because games worth playing don’t come about too often, and mine is mostly used for the web browser when my kid ain’t playing Nintendoland or something like that, the gap in specs between the Wii U and PS4 is just enough to guarantee that Wii U will get no 3rd party multiplatform games, too much time and effort is another factor for developers, and at this point, the gamepad really doesn’t have a use other than just getting in the way, I think they need a man in charge who overall, has a widespread scope when it comes to visions for the future cause Iwata is a very boxed in minded boss who isn’t the right man to lead a games company, not in this day and age anyway, under him, it’s just recycling games, and letting older franchises rot and die, under someone else, I see a big success.

        And 3DS. ;)

        • Shota

          yeah but this site started as wii u only. wiiudaily asked us if we want 3ds section.

          • 00EpicGamer00

            I know. But there is a 3DS section on this site. It’s not JUST targeting the Wii U. But yeah, I agree that this site is mostly about the Wii U (it is called Wii U Daily for a reason). I say…like, 95% of the focus is on the Wii U. And the rest of the 5% is on the 3DS.

          • Shota

  • Rinslowe

    I think Bayonetta 3 as a kind of swan song of sorts, would be pretty neat for Wii U. A couple of decent first party send offs as well and it would be a good way to sail on through to whatever Nintendo cooks up next.
    But that would be a few years off yet.
    With any luck, Bayonetta 2 does well in sales and 3 becomes a done deal.

  • Magnus Eriksson

    Im not too sure about that. Most people seems to be little interested in Bayonetta 2 and Im surprised if it will sell more than 90.000 copies worldwide. The graphics is outdated and looks like something from mid PS3 era. Although outdated Wii U doesnt have a very good track record when it comes to handle this type of graphics. My guess is that this game will serve frame drop issues. I wish Nintendo could have made the Wii U just slightly more powerful…

    • https://www.imthegoddamnbatman.com Gamer Mania

      That explains why Project Cars developer constantly praised the Wii U more than the PS4/Xbox One…. seriously kid, do some research before you call the Wii U “Outdated”… the Xbox One has already been called out for being outdated because devs say it can’t reach 1080p res and 900p is the max. So take that as you will.

      • nintendope

        Don’t be blinded, the Wii U is underpowered compared to today’s standart, no reason to be angry at a fact.

        • https://www.imthegoddamnbatman.com Gamer Mania

          Did I say anything about power?
          All I said was the Xbox One was already found out to be underpowered due to the poor ESRAM and Devs are already saying the Xbox One isn’t going to be saved by DirectX 12. No reason to be angry at a fact.

        • Yen

          There’s a difference between “outdated” and “underpowered”. Underpowered implies it’s lower than it could have been. Outdated implies that it’s old tech that shouldn’t be used anymore. If you want to talk today’s standard, all three consoles are underpowered, but I wouldn’t consider any of them outdated.

          • Magnus Eriksson

            Lol… Wii Us pad. Look at the screen. Thats tech from 2008.

          • Yen

          • MerryBlind .

            Well said.

        • D.M.T

          All 3 consoles are underpowered compared to today’s “standards” by your logic because none of them are on par with PC.

          • Magnus Eriksson

            True. Its actually much worse than just underpowered. Its the most underpowered system of a generation with underpowered systems. Thats even worse…

          • Yen

            That’s been all Nintendo systems. Still made amazing games every generation. Good job you can tell a Nintendo system didn’t focus on power.

          • Christopher McNair

            It wasn’t the NES. Or the Gamecube. Not every Nintendo console is the least powerful. Most of them just don’t sell well since Nintendo’s treatment of 3rd parties starting with the N64. The Wii sold more on motion controls than game selection.

          • Yen

            I don’t know about the NES era, but I don’t think the NES was that powerful for it’s time. As for the Gamecube, I’m pretty sure in terms of pure power, it’s not as powerful as the Xbox or the PS2. Correct me if I’m wrong. No matter why it sold, it still sold them, the motion control is still apart of the initial investment for the console. Point is, Nintendo has put out iconic games every generation regardless of the power of the console.

          • MerryBlind .

            Mmmh from what I’ve gathered throughout the years was that the Gamecube was actually more or less on par with the Xbox, and the PS2 was the weakest by a significant margin. However the GameCube was held back compared to the Xbox because of its smaller discs with less capacity. All 3 had completely different architectures I believe, with the Xbox being essentially a PC (DirectXbox).

          • matthew garcia

            They weren’t that close. Xbox had a 733mhz processor, game cube had a 433, and playstation had the worst with 233. Star wars knights of the old republic looked awesome on Xbox. So did the 1st splinter cell

          • MerryBlind .

            What about the GPU? And processor speed doesn’t mean much btw I’m sure you know that. Though I do think the Xbox was the overall most powerful, the Gamecube wasn’t far off either, but the disc really hurt it.

            Also, Enclave looked awesome too! Fable too!

          • matthew garcia

            Chronicals of Riddick looked really good. Doom 3 also but pc was best

          • Yen

            Make sense, so let’s say PS2 is the weakest like you said. Then it still supports the idea that a powerful console doesn’t always mean the best console. At least in terms of sales.

          • matthew garcia

            What helped ps2 is that it had all the badass rpgs

          • Yen

            It being an affordable DVD player helped more imo.

          • matthew garcia

            I’m sure final fantasy 10 and metal gears sons of liberty helped more

          • Jonathan Robitaille

            the number one factor…as was blu ray with PS3.

          • MerryBlind .

            It does indeed. It’s all about marketing and game library. Much moreso marketing sadly, but not marketing just in the sense of ‘hype’ and ‘advertising’, but also in terms of having the right product at the right time at the right price. PS3 wasn’t at the right price, and Blu-Ray wasn’t the right time either, which is why it struggled greatly for quite some time. X1, with all its TV features and Kinect stuff isn’t the right product, and isn’t at the right price because of it (though they’re working on changing the product). PS4 is everything a gamer wants, at the right price, which is why it manages to create so much hype.

          • Shootdatrupee!…

            Ouya

            better

          • URFTBOUND4LIFE .

            Oh god, people please give this a rest with this “they need a more powerful system “stuff.
            It’s just shoulda-coulda-woulda nonsense. It is what it is.
            More power doesn’t mean game developers are going to use it to it’s full potential. It’s far too early to think all three consoles have peaked and this is as good as games are going to get.
            I’m pretty sure once developers work on the Wii U more, they’ll be able to do some wonderful things with it.

          • Joseph Oliveira

            You do know that the standard household is either still running Windows XP, Win 7, or OS 10.6.8 or OS X 10.7.5, right? That just means they can’t handle OS X 10.8 or 10.9 or Windows 8.1.

            They’re console is faster than their crappy machine?

          • Shaise

            But we ain’t talking about PC we’re talking about console, a system which stays how its hardware is for its lifetime. Its unfair how you compare PC. MAYBE BECAUSE PC’S ALSO HAVE THESE NEW GPU’S RELEASED AND ARE UPDATES EVERYTIME!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Paying $1000 everytime?

        • Dark Lord Sauron

          will wii u is more powerful then ps3 and 360 at least

          • Magnus Eriksson

            More like on pair or slightly below.

          • tronic307

            The only weakness compared with PS360 is that the CPU’s floating-point unit can only handle 64-bit precision as opposed to 128-bit. The GPU is more modern and there’s twice as much RAM for games.

          • Dark Lord Sauron

            no its not on par with those systems cause ps3 and 360 run on mid 2000 specs while wii u runs on 2011 specs

            Lol that must mean the original Wii was 1999 technology. Wii u is actually more like 2008. Xbox came out in 2005 and Wii u is not that much better

        • Rinslowe

          I know by reason and a killer PC that this statement is true.

          But strange how little that “logical conclusion” means anything while gaming; SM3DW, Pikmin 3 or especially Mario Kart 8. All fun and gorgeous titles.
          Seriously, that’s pretty much it in a nutshell. The whole under-powered debate only matters on paper.

        • URFTBOUND4LIFE .

          But they are working directly under Nintendo. What makes you think Nintendo won’t show them all the tricks they use to make their games run well?
          Your only going by 3rd party ports from the past not baring in mind this is a 3rd party exclusive Nintendo paid for so I think its gonna be fine. If they do have frame-rate issues it won’t be major. People need to just chill-out and wait for the final product before passing judgment.

      • Magnus Eriksson

        Still XBoxOne have outsold the Wii U that was launched more than a year ahead. If Nintendo hadnt modelled the Wii U after last gen systems the situation would have been different. Now Wii U is in its mid life crisis, still with less impressing looking games than its forerunners had. Wii U is pretty much deat, twitching only a little to sales like Mario Kart. But thats over and it sould a lousy 2M. Its the worst selling Mario Kart in history…

        • Yen

          If you’re going to troll at least get your facts right.

        • WolfgangAmadeusMozart

          “XBoxOne have outsold the Wii U that was launched more than a year ahead.”

          So now you’re telling me that 5 million is higher than 6.5 million ? That makes perfect sense !

          • Magnus Eriksson

            5M iby April. Its July now.

          • WolfgangAmadeusMozart

            I took those numbers from VG chartz, my bad.

            And the Wii U was at 6.17 million as of March 31st according to Nintendo’s official numbers, nice try.

          • Jonathan Robitaille

            but remember…he isn’t a troll guys…nothing to see here

          • Shaise

            Xbox still sold faster than Wii U which was one year ago. I took Wii U about 8 months to reach that 5 million mark. Xbox quickly caught up in about less than a year. THAT makes perfect sense.

          • WolfgangAmadeusMozart

            Since Magnus was talking about the Wii U having a year headstart, he was obviously talking about lifetime sales, so I replied accordingly.

            Of course if you compare the sales over the same launch period, the Xbox one is the winner, it actually took the Wii U nearly 13 months to reach 5 million units while it took the Xbox one about 5 months to reach that number.

            However, with the Wii U having over 1 million units ahead and the weekly sales being close if not higher than the Xbox One since June, the Xbox One isn’t catching up anytime soon in terms of lifetime sales.

      • matthew garcia

        Not to many Wii u games have hit 1080p either. Also Wii u will have an easier time hitting 1080p cuz games are less graphically demanding then Xbox one. Even then Wii u still has hard time itself hitting 1080p

        • MerryBlind .

          Well I’m sure it could handle many games in 1080p at 30fps. NSMBU, 3D World, DK, MK, probably could have all run at 1080p if they were running at 30fps.

          Thing is, Nintendo know that 60fps is important for most games, so they favour that over higher resolution, and I’m more than fine with that.

          However, I expect Zelda to be 720p30fps given its open-world nature and how gorgeous it looks! (hopefully they’ll hit 720p60fps or 1080p30fps though)

          • matthew garcia

            Zelda looks great but that’s more fantastic art direction then anything. That’s what cell shading is for. Less graphically demanding but it looks fantastic. I can’t wait for it. Quick question , do you think Xbox one can play Wii u exclusives at 1080p 60 fps?

          • MerryBlind .

            Well that’s what I love about Nintendo in terms of graphics. They know what they can do with their hardware, and they know how to work around it. Not only do their games have astounding art direction, they are also top-notch technically.

            I’m playing Mario Galaxy for the first time right now (didn’t have a Wii last gen) and man am I impressed. I mean, sure, nothing screams CUTTING EDGE, but everything is in perfect balance/harmony. Textures, shadows, polygons, animations, framerate, etc. Everything is ‘good’, nothing is ‘bad’ or ‘too good’ in relation to the rest, which makes the overall result greater than the sum of its parts.

            Most games from most other developers aren’t balanced visually. They’ll have crazy textures, but crappy polygons. They’ll have good textures, good polygons, and good shadows, but framerate will be shit. Great lighting, but crappy resolution and aliasing. Etc.

            And yes I do think X1 could play Wii U exclusives in 1080p60fps.

          • matthew garcia

            Yeah Mario galaxy looks great even for an old 480p game. The great art direction helps it from aging to badly. I also think Xbox one can play Wii u exclusives at 1080p 60fps

    • nintendope

      I also thought the same when I saw the Wii U: Dead before arrival.. But hell.. as a Nintendo Fan all I can do is look at the bright sides, we got Bayonetta now..lol

      • https://www.imthegoddamnbatman.com Gamer Mania

        Same thing I thought about the Xbox One… only it came true XD

        • nintendope

          lol the Xbone had it more rough since the original idea (the kinect) failed.. They will need a lot of GOOD exclusives to get out of the trouble they are in

          • MerryBlind .

            Well just that Halo Collection might easily do the trick…. I might buy one just for that awesome collection.

          • matthew garcia

            Yeah halo. They should also try to make fable good again

          • MerryBlind .

            Mehh… It seems like a rotten series now. Not too sure about the direction they’re taking the new one… though I haven’t really looked into it.

            Can’t wait for the Anniversary Edition of Fable 1 to come out on PC soon though!

          • matthew garcia

            Exactly what I meant. It is a rotten series now. Like I said they should try to make it good again

          • MerryBlind .

            Yeah they definitely should ‘try’. Problem is, they seem to always try to reinvent the series instead of just getting right what made the 1st one so good. They’re like “oh, people didn’t like our new ideas, ok. Let’s try OTHER new ideas” NO don’t do that, just make a good adventure game.

          • matthew garcia

            Your Exactly right

        • D.M.T

          Xbox ‘don’t buy’ One lol.

      • D.M.T

        Dead before arrival huh? That’s funny because Wii U is the second best selling home console right now.

        • nintendope

          That’s what I thought spec-wise, it is only natural to think like that. I love my Wii U man, and I also expect it to do well since it has excelled in many other ways other than power.

    • lonewolf

      Someone has not watched the nintendo treehouse live at e3.

    • bistricky

      “Bayonetta 2 ….. Im surprised if it will sell more than 90,000 copies worldwide”

      Wow …. that is on the low-end of the prediction scale

      Not sure if you are in a joking spirit with your post, but I do think there is a lot of hype (since 2012) for this game …. add to that, the added Bayonetta 1 for free …. having Bayonetta 2 as an exclusive etc ….. I would hazard to guess that this game has the potential to sell 700,000 in its lifetime (and I would consider my prediction as being conservative).
      Cheers :D

    • Rinslowe

      Lol. If serious?…. nah…
      Bayo 2 looks gorgeous. Comparing it to older platforms is a waste of time. As it is exclusive to Wii U. What we can do is compare it to the original Bayonetta, which did happen to be on last gen systems. And in that we can clearly see the steps forward Platinum has achieved with the title. Much improved texture quality, animations, lighting, effects, framerate stability, colour palette, scope, features and possibly resolution.
      I’d say it’s impossible to say if last gen systems could run it to the same exact level of parity than Wii U. And unless a port was ever made to those systems. Fruitless to debate it.

      • Magnus Eriksson

        Hehe, Im almost never serious. :)

        • Jonathan Robitaille

          we know

    • Jonathan Robitaille

      lazy trolling…really. can do better

      • Magnus Eriksson

        Well off course I can, but still its like 50 replies to my lazy trolling. Im happy with that :)

        Will you pick up Bayo2 btw? I might now when they announced it will be packaged with the first game aswell.

        • Jonathan Robitaille

          I haven’t played the first one so the fact that it is included is big. This seems like gameplay similar to God of War which I played a little of but wasn’t blown away. But I played only the 1st so maybe they improved later on. I most likely will buy this but not early. Maybe after a price drop. I’m more excited for Captain Toad and Wooly World.

    • Petri

      When it reaches more than 90.000, could you upload your reaction to YouTube, so that I could never watch it.

      • Magnus Eriksson

        Good idea about making you tube videos. I might make some game reviews :)

        • Petri

          Do that, cant wait not to watch them.

    • MujuraNoKamen

      For gods sake! Why are so many people falling for this shit!?
      Ignore trolls guys!

      • Magnus Eriksson

        No, dont do that. Give me attention instead :)

    • Joseph Oliveira

      Name me one game that fans made fun of when it came to graphics on the Wii U. All the crap I hear about is XBox One VS. PS4 details on graphics.

      • Magnus Eriksson

        Donkey Kong – Framedrop issues, long loading times and thats a 2D game

        New Super Mario U – Was promised in 1080p but couldnt handle it so it was sold with the inferior 720p instead. Even then 30-45 fps

        Mario Kart 8 – Pushes Wii U to its limits as the havy framedrops reveal. Also promised in 1080p

        Super mario 3D World – Lol, its less 3D than Mario 64

        Zelda Wind Waker – Its called HD and a remake although its nothing but an upscaled GCN game with more colours and lightning effects. It screams rushed out. Which is also confirmed by Aonuma who bragged about only using 6 months on it. Even though a lazy restauration its sold at full price

        I could go on forever here.

    • Tsijiari

      you should see then how the xbox 360 version of the first bayonetta looks comapred to this one, not to mention that besides the graphics upgrade from the predecessor it also runs at constnat 60fps, while bayonetta from the xbox 360 has a variable framerate between the 30fps and the 60fps

  • Erik

    Has anyone think that when they announced the original along with Bayonetta 2 is double middle finger to Sony and Microsoft? Also side note… PLEASE RELEASE BAYONETTA 2 ON MY BIRTHDAY!

    • TaintedXGamer

      it releasing in the same month as my birthday, i’m already overjoyed :D

      • Erik

        Thing is.. my birthday is on a Tuesday :( Game releases usually lands in the middle of the week or the weekend. Crossing my fingers for a Direct with a concrete date.

  • MerryBlind .

    Gotta love Nintendo.

  • CydeFxt

    I wish they would save these sort of thoughts until the game gets released or afterwards or something. I just hate the idea of getting my hopes up for the likely chance that it won’t happen.

  • Brian Bridenbecker

    I hate all the “nay-Sayers”. Nintendo had the best E3 this year and the best games. Bayonetta 2 is one in a long line of great games coming to Wii U. It will be under my Xmas tree for sure!

  • TennilleJChapman

    Nintendo fans buy Bayonetta 2, and support Platinum games maybe we will get Bayonetta 3 http://merky.de/893dd8

  • http://facebook.com/validgraphics val berger

    Platinum said similar things about a W101 sequel, they don’t really seem to have learned anything. I highly doubt that B2 is going to sell good enough, but then again, if Nintendo is going to put some more money into that franchise, it might be possible. And after all, thanks to MK8, the userbase is now bigger than when W101 launched plus Bayonetta is far more appealing to the mainstream market. Still, I’d be surprised if it’s going to be successful.

  • InterTreble

    “Wii U is only platform and Mario”. How wonderful is to be a Nintendo hater. You live in a world of your own… :D

  • Rich Garriques

    wow if this comes thru nintendo is once again the king of gaming. a entire franchise on a new console that just released is beyond awesome. this is a feat not even sony and microsoft can achieve.

  • FutureFox

    I can see this as to why they bothered to include the first Bayonetta.

    • bistricky

      Exactly. :D

  • smcq

    im happy its exclusive, sony and microsoft get tu much popularity so HA, TAKE THAT!!

  • Adrian

    Whenever i see that pic, i wonder where her hair is coming from…

    • 00EpicGamer00

      What are you talking about? Did you not know her hair is actually “cut” short?She doesn’t have long hair in this second one.

      • Ice Climbers

        Her “clothes” are made of her hair.

        • 00EpicGamer00

          Wasn’t there an article on Wii U Daily, with the developer talking about why he decided to make her hair short? So, that couldn’t possible be her hair

      I’ve been to the comments section…it feels like the Dead Sea in there.

  • Petri

    Yes, I would love that.

  • Ferd726

    if posible if bayonetta 2 sold at least 2 million copies it may happend to be exclusive but if not platinum games will make bayonetta 3 but only PS4, XBOX ONE and Wii U.

    • Petri

      Platinum Games are not going to put out anything.
      They do as their publisher tells them to do.
      If it does bad, Nintendo might still fund the third.
      If it does good, well…
      Sega as the IP holder will royally fuck it up.

      • J_Joestar

        kinda sad if we have to worry about it selling “Too” well…

  • LordiMcKill

    I’m just glad they decided to remaster the original since I never played it.

    • Christian Schoff

      I played the original just so I could play number 2 on Wii U. Now I’m gonna have to play it again because they added a bunch of stuff. Lol

    • MerryBlind .

      Me too! I could have played it on PS3, but I heard that version was awful compared to the 360 one…

  • jhell

    it feel great to own a wii u

  • HavokPants

    a couple of weeks ago called … they want their news back

  • Dark Lord Sauron

    nintendo needs to buy platinum and make them nintendo second party dev and also get bayonetta ip as well

    • The Unkown

      If Nintendo bought Platinum Games, they would be a first-party development studio, not second party. As for the Bayonetta IP, I believe SEGA still owns it.

  • e_rocket

    it should… and they should put her on smash bros…

  • george

    platinum games is really confident with this game to say they will be make another one

  • Jeremy Baker

    Yes yes yes please do it. Everyone buy BN2 so we can have BN3

  • oontz

    Recent? The article was from June 25th. Why didn’t you report it then?

    • Petri

      Well, it looks like Ashley is the only one putting out articles, 12/15 of the latest was hers.
      But I prefer getting the latest news from somewhere else, and talking about them in here.

  • Arthur Jarret
  • MujuraNoKamen

    Man I hope so. That would be great for Wii U on so many levels.
    But the only way this can happen is if B2 sells in decent numbers, if Nintendo makes a huge loss on it then they wont waste their time with a new one and the franchise will either be lost to MS/Sony or gone for good :( So to everyone interested in this game and the possible 3rd you ought to buy it!

  • JudgeMethos

    Sold! I have part 1 of Bayonetta on the 360 but never finished it. Great game though my backlog keeps me from finishing them. Guess I’ll trade that in for a little credit. Can’t wait for 2 in 1. Bargain much!
