Hi, this is Bayonetta 2’s director, Yusuke Hashimoto. How are you?
E3 2014 is finally here, and as attendees are trying out our new playable Bayonetta 2 demo, we have even more exciting information to share with you today.
First, take a look at our newest trailer!
Adding to the bow and arrow we saw in our previous trailer, this newest trailer reveals a set of flamethrowers and one absolutely huge hammer. What did you think?
We also see more of the mysterious boy in this trailer—he seems to know something about the Gates of Hell? Then we take a peek into Inferno itself, see some enemies that definitely aren’t angels, and hear some concerning words from Rodin. Will Bayonetta be able to save the soul of her best friend Jeanne from the grips of Inferno?
We’ve also learned more info on the game’s release date—Bayonetta 2 will be heading to the US in October 2014!
Every copy of Bayonetta 2 will come with a special Wii U version of the original Bayonetta! See how amazing Climax Action can feel playing with touch controls on the Wii U GamePad! This exclusive Wii U version will also contain a special set of costumes hand-picked by the original game’s director, Hideki Kamiya himself! From hardcore action fan to complete novice gamer, this Bayonetta is guaranteed to be a thrill ride.
All right, let’s bring the discussion back to Bayonetta 2.
