Release in all regions around same time?

If not then Bayonetta 2 has probably convinced me to get a Japanese Wii U on import.

I never thought I would consider buying the Wii U day one. This Nintendo Direct piqued my interest.

Sega clearly didn't want to make it, so even if it's exclusive to one console, we are still getting the game. It's much better than not getting the game at all.

Cancel Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance now and bring Bayonetta 2 multiplatform!

The fandom demands it!
Port-begging ALREADY?

Did Rockstar say a few weeks ago we'll show you more GTA V in a few weeks. Please be today, the reaction would glorious.
The reaction on Wallstreet would be hilarious when Rockstar stock would drop through the floor. What is wrong with you? No console launch can support that kind of game budget. By any console company.

But why? Is this the way for Nintendo to grab more fans for Wii U?

:( I guess it is...
I'm not afraid to say that I'm incredibly fucked off that this isn't going to be on other platforms. Who bought Bayonetta on Wi- OH.

I am glad that it exists though, hopefully this is successful and we get another Bayonetta next gen.

Sega just shot themselves in the foot.

I don't know how much the rest of you know about Japanese culture (I'm an expert), but honor and shame are huge parts of it. It's not like it is in America where you can become successful by being an asshole. If you screw someone over in Japan, you bring shame to yourself, and the only way to get rid of that shame is repentance.

What this means is the japanese public, after hearing about this, is not going to want to purchase Bayonetta 2 for WiiU, nor will they purchase any of Sega's games. This is HUGE. You can laugh all you want, but Sega has alienated an entire market with this move.

Sega, publicly apologize and cancel Bayonetta for WiiU or you can kiss your business goodbye.
