Bayonetta 2 coming to Wii U in 2014!


Filed: Bayonetta 2, Community, Games, PGTV, PlatinumGames

Hi, this is the director for Bayonetta 2, Yusuke Hashimoto. Hope everyone has been well.

Did you enjoy seeing Bayonetta in the latest Nintendo Direct? You can check out the newest trailer here:

As we’re using this post to touch base with our fans, why don’t we take a little time discussing what the “2” in our new Bayonetta means. It’s a sequel: we’ve taken the characters, story, and gameplay of the original and built upon them.

In addition to the original’s gameplay system—dodging at the last minute to perform Witch Time, saving up your Magic Gauge to use Torture Attacks—Bayonetta 2 includes a new feature called Umbran Climax. Now saving your Magic Gauge also gives you the option to unleash a combo made of successive Wicked Weave and Infernal Demon summons. This wide-ranged attack can effectively give you free rein over the battlefield.

We’ve escalated the Climax Action in other ways as well, take a look these, starting with the E3 2013 trailer:



In our playable demo at E3 last year, you got to experience fighting on a jet and taking care of a rampaging Gomorrah. Now we have our new footage of Bayonetta caught in an epic battle of summons with a masked sage. This time the action is going to take you to all different places, be it land or sky. There will be exciting new situations of all types.

Eventually I’d like to talk about the new looks we’ve given the characters, and about the story as well. Stay put until then.

We’re starting to reach the climax stage of development here at Platinum as well. I’m excited to see what you’ll think. See you again!


Yusuke Hashimoto (Director)

khanhechip Posted on February 14, 2014 at 5:54 pm

Could you please upload the original mp4 file on Google Drive or some hosting service such as Mediafire, ? I download the Japanese version on your website and it looks much better than this compressed version. Bayonetta 2 deserves a high quality trailer because Platinums rocks :D.

OmegaSlayer Posted on February 14, 2014 at 7:10 pm

Waiting for the release date on other platforms that people actually buys.
This game exclusive on WiiU is an insult to gamers.

Musou Tensei Posted on February 14, 2014 at 8:06 pm

Thank you so much for making this game, it looks amazing, I can't wait!

BBboy Posted on February 14, 2014 at 8:50 pm

Smokin' Style!!
Smokin' Sick Style!!!

Fantastic work guys, if Capcom won't get their asses in gear and make Devil May Cry 5 you guys should totally do it.

lz129 Posted on February 14, 2014 at 9:39 pm

Just finished Wonderful 101 – without a doubt my favourite game ever. In desperate need for another Platinum fix – can't wait for Bayonetta 2!

khanhechip Posted on February 14, 2014 at 10:57 pm

You could upload on Vimeo too :D. Vimeo videos has great quality :D.

fabricioogrande Posted on February 14, 2014 at 11:03 pm

Excellent work :) I loved Wonderful 101 and I'm looking forward to this game too, can't wait for play it.

Mr_Enforcer Posted on February 15, 2014 at 12:01 am

Bayonetta 1 was an awesome game, and this looks just as, if not more awesome…

Pity hardly anyone will play it because it's on Wii-U…

Dan Posted on February 15, 2014 at 12:29 am

Incredible stuff. Cannot wait for release.

Alex Rushdy Posted on February 15, 2014 at 12:39 am

This game looks fantastic.

I don't know if you guys read this or not, but… Is someone at Platinum a fan of Kaiju? Gomorrah in the first trailer and those two battling in the new trailer… It looks like epic Kaiju fights are becoming a theme!

Raruna Posted on February 15, 2014 at 1:47 am

Aaaa this looks totally sick <3
It's so good to see those trailers at 60fps. And my goodness, the game looks beautiful! Just another reason for me to get a Wii U.

Ari Posted on February 15, 2014 at 2:08 am

If I manage to stay employed in the coming months, I will get this and the WiiU :D

Shinox Posted on February 15, 2014 at 2:52 am

Where's The PC Version PG ?
We been asking for that since ages .. and you still didn't accept our request !!

Shinox Posted on February 15, 2014 at 2:54 am

Where's The PC Version of Bayonetta 1 PG ?

Anthony Posted on February 15, 2014 at 3:48 am

Best news out of the ND yesterday! I can't wait to see more, but not too much. I hope that it sells well so we might get another sequel :D

Josh Posted on February 15, 2014 at 3:54 am

Platinum…You guys definitely live up to your name! Love all of your company's output. Looking forward to hearing about a release date.

WonderRed Posted on February 15, 2014 at 5:27 am

You guys rock!

Stephen Posted on February 15, 2014 at 5:39 am


Eric Chan Posted on February 15, 2014 at 7:51 am

I've got some questions, will there be any accessories like in the previous game? Will this new Umbran Climax replace the Climax Brace accessory in the first game?

Raul Screamcore Posted on February 15, 2014 at 1:58 pm

ps3 :c

Alice Posted on February 16, 2014 at 1:29 am

You've done an amazing job in everything so far, be it new character looks, weapons, abilities for Bayonetta and Demons/Angels designs. The story seems to be pretty interesting thus far, really want to know who the Boy and the new Sage really are, and no one has to mention the AMAZING action to know it's there. Bayonetta was the best action gave ever to many. Bayonetta 2 seems to take it into a WAY different level. Congratulations!

ExtremeBayoFan Posted on February 16, 2014 at 1:48 am

I love Bayonetta!!! I have already ordered Bayonetta 2. Please give us the option to play with the Wii U Pro Controller.

joseph Posted on February 16, 2014 at 9:46 am

Amazing. Please re-release the original Bayonetta on WiiU too!

antoids Posted on February 17, 2014 at 1:17 am

im guessing a port of bayo 1 is not in the stars, given the state of the wii u

OmegaSlayer Posted on February 17, 2014 at 1:38 am

Travis Posted on February 17, 2014 at 1:43 am

Day 1 Purchase

OmegaSlayer Posted on February 17, 2014 at 4:27 am

All your lovely work and effort for 6 comments on your blog.
You love your game, take it back.
You can't expect people to buy a console they don't want for your game, no matter how much they want your game.
Bring your game where it will be really loved.

meninuigu Posted on February 17, 2014 at 11:28 am

O loved the trailer! :D

And I'd like to know what's the song played as BG between 0:20 and 0:56. I think that's a new mysterious destiny, and I loved so fuckin' much! <3 I hope that you release some OST, I can't wait for this <3 <3 <3

Amazing trailer. I'm a big fan of yours. <3

Doni Posted on February 17, 2014 at 12:06 pm

The game looks beautiful! I cant wait for it

Wonder Blue Posted on February 17, 2014 at 12:29 pm

It looks amazing. I´m anxious to "touch" it properly with my Wii U.

venomjamaica Posted on February 17, 2014 at 2:47 pm

I love the original… and I know I will LOVE the second. Everything I see about this game excite me. Love the new combo modes, love the graphics, love the new look, love the sound track. I soooo can't wait to get this game. Day one purchase for me.

Digestive Gaming Posted on February 19, 2014 at 2:10 pm

This is the wonderful blog ever. It provides extreme games details that create interest while playing. I love it to study.

atc Posted on February 20, 2014 at 5:07 am

Familiar territory, familiar territory I much enjoy-can't wait to return to the world of Bayonetta. Looks magnificent (and I love her new hairstyle). ;-)

Kevin Posted on February 20, 2014 at 7:34 am

Guys at Platinum Games, please join a worldwide partner with Nintendo to create more action games and new IPs for Wii U.

Doki Posted on February 21, 2014 at 1:18 am

Why in the world is this on the WiiU and not consoles the first game was on >_>

joan Posted on February 24, 2014 at 2:25 pm

where gone the 720p @60 fps MOV file?

Lady Posted on February 25, 2014 at 4:18 am

Looks very beautiful and fun. Cant wait, pre-ordered my copy :3.

Bayonetta is nice character, this new hairstyle looks younger.

MJLFARIA Posted on February 27, 2014 at 3:15 pm


HellsingGirl Posted on February 28, 2014 at 12:25 am

D: aww to bad it's only for Wii-U if they had it for ps4 to I would buy it in a heartbeat

Seve Posted on March 4, 2014 at 12:03 am


To be honest, I was disappointed when I knew Kamiya wasn't going to Direct this, but I deeply apologize, because you ARE Awesome! :)

I don't know how you guys in Platinum Games produce such consistent quality. Loved Bayonetta! Wonderful 101 is my favorite game ever! (pushing Okami to second place). Metal Gear Rising is astounding and, by far, my favorite Metal Gear. MadWorld and Anarchy Reigns are so much FUN, underrated and definitely my kind of Games. Easily the most Wonderful Studio working today when it comes to consistent quality Games, along with Nintendo.

My dream is that you guys, and Nintendo, collaborate together for a Zelda title someday!

A "Legend of Zelda" with Okami's deep story and touching soundtrack, MGRising's ass-tight sword combat (changed to accommodate the Zelda vibe), Bayonetta's magical worlds and creative enemies, and Wonderful 101's humor, storytelling, lovely characters and voice acting. While Nintendo design the Dungeons layout and platforming. PERFECTION!

Anyway, can't wait for more posts on this game, easily my most anticipated game of the year. I'm very grateful to Nintendo for making this game possible, especially on the Wii U my favorite console ever!

Looks even better than the first one, which is also on my top 5 list!

Alixter Posted on March 8, 2014 at 10:45 am

Bring Bayonetta 1 on Wii U thank you Platinum, so that people who do not own multiple consoles have the opportunity to catch up with the franchise thanks again

Bay2OnWiiU4Life Posted on March 11, 2014 at 1:19 pm

Bayonetta 2 is one of the most wanted games to purchase on Wii U this year. Two thumbs up to PlatinumGames and Nintendo!

James Posted on March 18, 2014 at 4:50 am

It's the game going to have Wii U pro controller support?

Bigtakilla Posted on March 19, 2014 at 5:41 am

Definitely THE game to buy in 2014 period, getting my copy day 1. Thank you for showing the Wii U some love (even if they are funding it).

DePapier Posted on March 20, 2014 at 12:43 am

Keep on keeping on, PG!! :D
— A Wonderful Gamer ;)

VG Prophet Posted on May 8, 2014 at 5:26 pm

They should of considered the idea of releasing this game for PS3 and Xbox 360, releasing this for the Wii U is a huge mishaps especially in light of knowledge that the Wii U already proved to be a failure.

Luciano Posted on May 16, 2014 at 9:25 am

I didnt like Bayonetta with short hair, please make a alternative skin with the classic suit and i buy you game :.)
