Oh man a friend of mine is gonna be so conflicted about this.

He loves Bayonetta, but probably wasn't planning on buying a Wii U.

Thank you Nintendo! Thank you for my friend's sweet, sweet tears

Of all the third party franchises they could have chosen for an exclusive, they picked this one?

Was the first game even popular? I never played it or followed its success.
This is the perfect game to get. It says they care about the hardcore, and it's owned by a publisher who is bailing on retail, and it's made by an independent studio.

This was genius.

Such a bitter-sweet feeling.

On the one hand I'm ecstatic that we are getting a Bayonetta sequel.

On the other hand, I'm disappointed it will be exclusive to a platform I have absolutely no interest in.

My guess would be the game was canceled, so Nintendo went shopping and revived it.
Right. We know that Sega dropped this game, so it wasn't as if there was some intense bidding war for the game. This was not Nintendo snapping this up as an exclusive and stealing it away from other publishers who were perfectly willing to publish it as a multiplatform title.

To put it this way: There's a reason Sega took Bayonetta 2 behind the shed and put a bullet through its head.

Why would Nintendo need Sega for this? Unless Sega owns the IP.
Sega owns the Bayo IP.

I really really hope Bayonetta 1 get's an eshop port with smooth framerate and small loading times. I really want to play through the game, but not on my PS3 :( especially after my saves got wiped

Holy fuck! When I saw the platinum intro and the moon I simply thought it was their new intro sequence, I wasn't expecting Bayonetta to drop down. Total mindfuck, I'm still reeling from this announcement, fuck yes.

What in the actual fuck? Why would Nintendo secure this as an exclusive? LMAO this is so weird!...
Maybe because they wanted Platinum Games to also make an original IP for their new platform, and it would be a good way to earn core gamer cred?

So goooood.
People, do you have a problem with nintendo? A console is made by the games it has, if you just want bayonetta 2so much becuase you are big fans, just buy a WiiU.

Watch it be included in this game as an unlockable. That's the sort of thing that Platinum would do.
