I dunno man, how this shit happens... Distribution agreements or something? Can this be fixed through contacting Nintendo?

* The retail version of Bayonetta 2 comes with the first Bayonetta game. Digital
downloads of Bayonetta 2 from Nintendo eShop do not include the first game.

It's a tiny footnote at the bottom of the page: http://bayonetta2.nintendo.com/

Maybe Nintendo couldn't get the rights to a digital version of the game or something?

So then venture to PoopStop or buy off Amazon. Dont see what the big deal is.

This is the type of title you want a hard copy of anyway. Fuck digital.

just buy the retail.

That sucks for those who haven't played it and wanted the digital version. I'd never play it anyway since I've killed it enough, so it's still digital for me.

Unless this turns into a collector's item some how...

Don't see the problem if it's priced appropriately. It would provide a cheaper option if you already own the 1st.

that's bad, i was going full digital with nintendo published games, thanks to the price of download codes on game.co.uk being lower than the eshop price... i guess i'll buy the disc this time...

That's messed up, but honestly I don't see any upside in partaking in Nintendo's digital service to begin with. They need to fix their account shit, to date I've only purchased the 30 cent VC games promotion on the Wii U shop because of it.

Anyone know how many GB the original Bayonetta was? Probably packaging both games together wouldn't fit onto 32 GB.

Was gonna' get retail anyway. Not a big deal when you've got options.

And yet, we'll hear endlessly about how the digital version is more expensive with less content and that, therefore, Nintendo does not understand digital distribution. Looking forward to that one _

No such thing is mentioned on the Japanese site.

http://www.nintendo.co.jp/wiiu/aquj/index.html

They put Bayonetta and Bayonetta 2 together with Package/Download versions of the game.

As far as I know this doesn't mean they can or will not sell the game separately on the eShop, right? I would wait a bit before jumping to conclusions.


So happy about it, btw! :D

if you only plan on using one Wii U it's fine and obviously super convenient having all of your games on a single drive. But for something like 3DS (where it's likely to have multiple systems in a household) it sucks.

edit - and yeah, those of you in the thread saying "I don't see the big deal just buy physical".... way to just completely dismiss the actual issue here. For some of us this is a very annoying issue that your "suggestion" does nothing to fix really.

ultimately if Nintendo offers the digital version of 2 for $40 and 1 for $20 I guess that would make sense.. but I seriously doubt that is the case.

are you guys really dumb enough to completely fail to realize there's plenty of countries with retail price discrepancies on a single region or dou you just wanna defend something you like for the sake of it?

A wiiU retail games costs $100+ where I live (and in brazil, and argentina, and, and, and). We get the US price on the eShop


think for a minute ffs, I cant believe there's a handful of people here posting the same thing as "crisis adverted". not everone lives in the US.

My guess is they cannot post the first game digitally. However, they should charge it at a cheaper price due to this. Charging the same price is shady as hell. You are getting ripped off if you buy the digital version.
