The sequel to the award-winning Bayonetta, which arrived several years ago for the PS3 and Xbox 360, Bayonetta 2 promises to deliver more of the same over-the-top action, adventure, and theatrics that the first game was famous for when it arrives this Friday on exclusively for the Nintendo WiiU. As a bonus, players who buy the physical version of the game will also receive a disk containing the original Bayonetta as well, while those who buy it on the eShop will get a discount on the first game that evens out the price to being the same as that of the physical version.
“The action-game geniuses at PlatinumGames have done it again. Bayonetta 2 is the kind of exclusive game that fans are going to devour like Halloween candy,” said Scott Moffitt, Nintendo of America’s executive vice president of Sales & Marketing. “With its challenging but rewarding game play and over-the-top content, Bayonetta 2 proves the depth and diversity of the library of games that can only be played on Wii U.”
Some special Nintendo themed content also awaits gamers in Bayonetta 2, as our heroine will be able to wear outfits themed after many famous Nintendo characters, including Princess Peach, Link from the Legend of Zeldia, and Samus from the Metroid series. These costumes also change some of Bayonetta’s attacks in amusing ways, such as the Peach costume causing her to summon the massive claws of the Koopa King, Bowser, rather than her normal demons.
Bayonetta 2 arrives on Friday with a price tag of $59.99 both in store and in the Nintendo eShop. While you can find all of the latest gaming news and reviews by following us on Twitter @APGNation.
