I really don't care what the console's price is anymore. This news made me so happy. Thank you based Nintendo.

When I saw the first thread with the mispelled title I thought it was Kamiya being Kamiya on twitter again

Holy shit!

Cool a Bayonetta sequel, but only for Wii U :/ ok I guess, but this means no money from me.

But cool that Nintendo publishes it

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.
. . . that seems blown out of proportion

Wii U exclusive. Published by Nintendo.
Well I'll be damned. Exclusives like this is all I have been waiting to see. As it actually gives me a reason to buy a Wii U. If this keeps up, then I will most definitely buy one. A most encouraging early sign indeed.

Nintendo publishing should prevent the otherwise infinite amount of port begging. Love it!

Exclusive. Confirmed in European stream
Disappointing, and I don't even own one of the competing platforms or care that much about the game.
I was simply hoping to see this "moneyhatting for exclusives" for everything that isn't first party as a thing of the past, in this next console generation coming.

No Kamiya. It just says Characters by Kamiya. As in the worst part of this game. But god damn was the gameplay tight.

Who da fuck is Hashimoto? Gaf tell me what this man has made, please.

No Kamiya makes me sad though. wtf. More interesting exclusives like this and P-100 and I may have to buy a WiiU
Hashimoto was Producer on Bayonetta.

Before that, he was mainly an artist in the past:

Effects Designer on RE3
Effects Animation Designer on DMC1
Effects Lead Designer on RE4
Effects Designer on God Hand

Published by Nintendo, that's a huge surprise.


I wasn't really a fan of the first one, but we had some really vocal people here (best character action game ever etc). Time to put your money where your mouth is? :p

Very angry right now.

It was multi-platform before, I don't see why they decided to fuck a lot of the fans (I want to say most).

Guess its the money, but whatever, eff this.

Man, Nintendo publishing Bayo 2 for Wii U...

If someone told me of this beforehand, I would have laughed in their damn face.
