REEEAALLY looking foward to Bayonetta! d(^o^)

Why not have the weapons for hands and feet switching independently? Then you can truly have 4 weapons at the ready. The DMC3 team did this on the PS2!

Sweet!! the man himself answers the fan's diehard questions!

Great and enjoyable Q&A. I look foward to the rest!

Enjoyable and informative as always. From here on out when people mention Sarah Palin i'm gonna say "Is that the woman who looks like Bayonetta?" :)

That was a fun watch. Odd to see that ol' Sarah Palin thing come up again. But he's totally right. Its just because of the glasses.

Its good to hear more about the cutscenes. Two of my favorite aspects of games are the cutscenes and art. How much cinema footage is in the game? (I hope lots!!!) Also, please include a mode to replay the cutscenes. Oh yeah, and a character model viewer (including all enemies and bosses). By the way, the TGS trailer blew my mind!

haha yeah the Palin jokes are old but I've always wondered what he thought of the comparison. Especially considering the jokes are still going, on Kotaku preferably.

Always pleasant to know he takes the time to check out the blogs here. Thanks for reaching out to the fans Kamiya!

[The A/C bit was hilarious.]

i just wanted 2 say thank u. i played and enjoyed all of your games thru the years and i feel as though u never get commended enuff 4 what u have brought 2 this industry. thank u 4 all the hard work u and your partners have put into not jusy Bayonetta, but all of your games. i am so happy that there wont be any DLC in this game and that everything is already in the game. we live in a time where a lot of game companys are making half-finished games and rushing them 2 the market and some just making them incomplete just so they can make a few extra bucks on top of the 60 plus dollars that the consumer pays. this seems 2 be the trend in the industry and it looks like most companys are going that route. what really hurts me is the fact that im like thousands of gamers in north america, i dont have a broadband connection. its not that i dont want it, its that i live in a area that wont bring provide high-speed access. when i found out that Bayonetta was a complete game with no DLC, i was thrilled. im glad some1 understands how 2 make a game and make it the old=fashioned way. thank u kamiya-san and keep up the ecellent work.

Well, well. I got my answer. Thank you for that.

By the way, I'm glad you fought hard to kee the glasses, she wouldn't be the same with out them. And so that you know, we the fans also enjoy the details put into your characters to enhance the experince and the characters. Keep it up and good luck on your endeavours.

Excellent video. It's great to catch a peek at how things go down behind the scenes. One thing does concern me though, that being the lack of a button configuration. The reason I bring this up is because ikn the previous video (Hideki Kamiya Plays Bayonetta), it looked like the two main attack buttons were mapped to the Y and B buttons respectively. Many people prefer the two main attack buttons mapped to the X and Y buttons because of the thumb position required to press these buttons over and over again for an extended period of time.

Over the years I have developed tendinitis in my fingers from playing soccer in high school and college and will admit that spamming the B button is incredibly taxing on the thumb compared to the X button. Many other veteran players get sore thumbs when playing intense action games. Why not have a simple button config like the DMC series had? I would never have been able to finish those games without a button config option.

I just want to ask Kamiya myself how does he feel about the PS3 version ? The demo was a huge disappointment, I can't believe how low and unstable the framerate is compared to the 360 version. "Converted by Sega" is that supposed to be a label of quality ? What a joke. You should have made the game 360 exclusive really. If you can't do something right, then just don't do it -_-

It's a shame because I love Platinum games but I hate companies that don't show respect to their own customers. This is not a good way to do business.

Very informative guys. I will look forward to the second part. Hope you guys know when its finished she needs to be hotter than sarah palin and tina fey combined. Yes? I may have said this before but maybe she could look something like re'all mayor (ergo proxy) but with glasses.
