Bayonetta 2 is coming to Wii U this October, but Funimation has been working on the Bayonetta: Bloody Fate anime for some time now. The anime originally released in Japan last year, directed by Afro Samurai legend Fuminori Kizaki. The anime film follows Bayonetta through the events of the original game, including unraveling the mystery of her past.
For the Western release and English dubs, Hellena Taylor reprises her role as Bayonetta, while other characters from the game have their original voice actors reprise their roles in the anime as well. The anime is currently available for pre-order on Funimation’s website and will arrive in time for the launch of Bayonetta 2 on October 21.
Bayonetta 2 will be released in a special edition that includes the original Bayonetta as well.
