Bayonetta has a mode which caters to the true Ninja Dogs

Hardcore AND casual. I think it's brilliant. Obviously the majority of us won't play it this way (except for the inevitable achievement or trophy for this mode), but it's awesome that I could watch my casual gaming sister get into the game, and then maybe want to learn the moves later, much like Guitar Hero has inspired people to learn how to play the actual guitar.

Seems kind of useless as the target group for this game is already the experienced action game player, though I guess it might be fun for a younger sibling to try out.

Mommy mode!, now you GF/mommy/wife has no excuses to no slice, cut in pieces monsters while the blood scaters everywhere, when at the same time the female protagonist loses the hair that covers her body!

:lol Why bother with this shit? Might as well enable an option to let the AI take care of the "playable" character.

A great idea for gamers that have difficulty in using a pad with two hands. It is certainly a good idea and a few more Developers should look into the viability of it with other games.

This sounds a lot like a mode that Nintendo has already patented. Maybe this means Bayonetta is headed to the Wii, or maybe Nintendo will sue Sega. Not good news...

As far as I can remember, Nintendo's idea is to let the AI take control of everything. Kamiya's idea is to have one button take care of almost everything, but you still need to press it.

Everyone has already made the sarcastic comments I wanted to post :(.
Yeah, the only thing left is for more people to convince themselves that this really is a mode for "beginners" and not a mode where Five Fingered Mary can jump in.

Did they take notes about Team Ninja's volleyball game of how to play the game one handed? :lol

Pretty interesting that they felt the need to add something like this in the game. I like Kamiya's explanations. :lol

Also the girl playing the game is the character designer... I wonder if she's the one who designed Bayonetta. :)

If i recall, when she uses moves, her hair outfit is slowly taken off... And we have a one handed game mode... Interesting...
