I think I just got a really uninformed response from Sega of America ...

So, I asked the question to NOA "is there a chance Bayonetta 1 will be ported to the Wii U". Their reply "Ask Sega, since Sega published it". So I asked Sega of America if I should go out and buy Bayo 1 on PS360 or if I should wait for a port for the Wii U since Bayo 2 is in the works. Here's their response:

Hello,
Thank you for contacting us.
The second Bayonetta as you well know is being published by Nintendo exclusively for the WiiU. Both games have been developed by Platinum games. That said, the decision on which version to purchase is really up to you. The games are exactly the same except the WiiU version has a two player mode and the Bayonetta character has different hair and her costume is different.
If those additional features are not important to you, then by all means don't hesitate to pick up the PS3 or Xbox version.
Good Luck and we hope you enjoy whatever version you decide on.
Have a nice day.
Regards,

Sega of America

So apparently, Bayo 2 is the same game just with multiplayer and the main character has shorter hair and a different costume ... Guess I got my answer.

the game has a different story... why would they say this in the end if they got a new copy of the original game for ps360 Sega you still get the money -_- don't try to make your new games less appealing make them get both...

Edit: man my wording is confusing o_O

...What? Reading comprehension!

They're talking about the different Bayonetta 1 versions, not Bayo 2.

What is this thread?
What is this post?

Both Bayonetta 1 versions were the same. They're clearly talking about Bayonetta 2.

More bad news for Wii u. First the never ending Japanese heatwave of 2013, then pikmin 3 was outsold by tamagotchi handhelds unearthed from 12 years ago, now we learn the only new content in bayonetta 2 is her costume. It is all but confirmed wonderful 101 is getting downgraded to wonderful 75 too.

Oh, I see, the only parts of the game funded by Nintendo are Bayonetta's hair and clothes and the multiplayer mode.

Platinum scamming Nintendo confirmed. Sega knows what Nintendon't. No wonder they cancelled the game in the first place.

Salty Customer Support?

IF they're serious (and that's a huge IF), I think it's more likely that they're talking about a Bayo 1 port with added multiplayer and Bayo 2 hair as a nod to the sequel being on WiiU.

Yeah, I don't get it. This supposed to be a Wii U version of bayonetta 1? Looks like it to me. Honestly I don't see the point but...
