I came into this thread to try and craft a well worded post to convey my excitement, and all I can think of is spelling out me screaming like a school girl... guess what a school girl screaming sounds like?
Dang nabbit. From Day Never club to Day 1 club.
Get this thing to me now. I mean right now.
Also, if Baynetta shows up in Smash ... jeez .. nintendo you old dogs, you've done it again.
They wouldn't be missing the other systems since their games sell like shit anyways. Two damn platinum exclusives on this system have me sold on the WiiU. Not day one though. I'll get it on a price drop.
So, so excited. Bayonetta was the nearest thing to Ninja Gaiden in terms of environments and atmosphere. The combat was every bit as fun too.
After the epic fail of Ninja Gaiden 3, this news couldn't be more welcome. Part of me wonders what a next-gen (720/PS4) Bayonetta would have looked like though, and now we may never know. But this is 1,000,000x better than no Bayonetta 2, which would likely have been the alternative if Nintendo hadn't have stepped in.
They know you're on Gaf man, they know you've been spilling the beans. Take whatever you can and get outta there, the Ninjas are coming for you!
I think the reason why Nintendo's got it exclusive is because Sega's not willing to front the money for advertising and are looking to hand Platinum off since it doesn't jive with their all online plan and had lackluster success (due in part because Sega didn't do shit for advertising). Nintendo has the money and needs killer apps to make the Wii U a success with the hardcore. If all goes well and Bayonetta becomes profitable Nintendo acquires Platinum. /fanfic
They aren't ignoring anything. Rumors suggested that Sega canned Bayonetta 2. So the most likely scenario is that Nintendo swooped in and saved the project. As a result it's now exclusive to the Wii U.
Well I doubt it was Platinum that needed seducing, it'd be Sega, and they have no reason not to really, unless all three first parties courted it. Sony probably wouldn't because of GoW, but MS might have.
On the contrary, the second is far more likely considering Sega's current financial situation and publishing philosophy. Sega outwardly announced that they were going to pass on global retail releases not named Sonic, Aliens, Total War, and Football Manager.
