I'm not a Bayonetta fan in the slightest, but I love this move since they brought the game back to life to get core gamers back on board - best thing I've seen them do for their console since the Gamecube days.

Keep it up Nintendo, this is how the Wii should have started off as power-wise and game-wise from the beginning, I would have gladly bought one if it was the case.

Good lord.

Remember, people, THIS GAME WAS DEAD.

The choice wasn't "Nintendo or multiplatform", the choice was Nintendo or NOTHING.
True enough, but it is still a good indication that Nintendo is serious about getting some interesting exclusives that will win over the core PS3/360 crowd. I just hope they keep it up, as many of us would love to have reasons to buy one.

Ugh! I couldn't be more divided on this annoucnement. As much as I want a Bayonetta 2, I don't want a god damn Wii U. I hope this is some timed exclusive bs becuase I don't know what Platinum Games is thinking putting their best and most "hardcore" franchise on a console whos little bro was known for being so casual. I don't know what type of audience they think is going to buy the Wii U.

After hearing that Bayonetta 2 was announced and watched the teaser, I was really happy and still am. I can't wait.

Not exactly a megaton but having exclusive niche games for the hardcore crowd is a good thing. Surprised Nintendo did this tbh.

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.
They picked it because Sega canned the game, due to Sega being fuckwits. Nintendo likes Platnium, and decided to pick up the pieces. People screaming "money hatted" are pathetic.

Nintendo also picked it to make Wii U haters on GAF exude MAXIMUM SALT.

"P-100", Bayonetta 2, Pikmin 3, and (if it is as good as NSMBWii) NSMBWiiU means I got that Wii U on lockdown. That shit will be mine.
Yeah, I feel the same way. Probably won't bite until Pikmin comes out though.

For one thing, if it sells well it will immediately demolish the "lolz core gamerz do not buy teh Nintendoz!!1!1!!!" meme.
Yes, but it won't. And I say that as a guy who loved the first one.

"My opinion is that it's not as great as everyone else thinks; thus, it's overrated and not relevant."

Nintendo's hoping to bring back the audience they began losing way back at the N64. I don't think it's going to be a system seller or even a huge seller in general (since the original sold poorly), but it's a game that will attract the niche fanbase that loved the original, at least.

"guys i cant play wii u my friends will make fun of me"

Just so you know, buddy, published by Nintendo means it's not a timed exclusive. Have fun with your superficialities. I'll be having fun on my Wii U.

How do you think audiences are created? Do you think system fanbases are created out of thin air?

Do you think if Bayonetta, GTA V, Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes, and Final Fantasy XV were all announced as Wii U exclusives, that fans would just sit back and say, "but that is a platform for casuals! I shall not buy it!"

A platform isn't defined by some magical aura which permeates reality and transcends generational gaps. It's defined by what games are on a system.

This also means Bayo can be in Super Smash Bros. since it satisfies the "Must be on a Nintendo console" requirement. I'm still riding so high from this.

Bayonetta had a lot of alpha heavy particle effects and transparencies on the screen. Imagine if Platinum takes advantage of that GPU; our brains will be blitzed out.

Holy cow. Here I was saying that this time I wasn't gonna get a launch console, I was gonna wait for there to be lots of games and price drops. I said "there isn't a single game I cannot wait for, not Mario, not Zelda, not even Metroid".

Then this announcement. Fucking Nintendo!

I have a sneaky suspicion the people complaining that is a Wii U exclusive are the same people that didn't said they didn't buy a Wii U due to lack of third party games... just an inkling.

It's giving me hope for Shenmue 3, Skies of Arcadia 2, and some of these other game we've been praying for. Maybe Nintendo will rescue them too :)
How insane would it be if Monolithsoft's new game was Skies of Arcadia 2?

I'd shit myself. Seriously. I'd burst in to tears, speak in tongues and shit myself. All at the same time.
