I have a feeling this game will get lost in the mix and be an average game.. From reading a preview of it in EGM I believe it made it seem like the gameplay was a bit corny.. Magic casting from hair, shoes with guns on them etc... While nice looking its probably not going to be a great game..

I really wish they'd show more, getting tired of seeing character renders and environments, and to be honest that looks just like DMC4 levels only not quite as nice.

I would play this game if they made took the impressive environments and made it into a free roaming adventure game without ridiculous character design and magic.

Pretty much. I'm interested in this game due to the sheer insanity of the design both artistically and mechanics wise, but this shit is looking a little to close to DMC4 to me right now.

Edit: And oh my goodness sharp knees

Wow...Worst female protagonist I've seen in a LONG time...

(Oh God, those legs...What is wrong with her legs!?)

Backgrounds look nice, though...

Excellent. I must see this game in motion. Safe to predict a TGS showing?

I'm also getting a DMC4 vibe from the setting.
And the enemies...you know angels with wings n all.

They are bent and she is tall?

This game really looks like it's running on Capcom's framework engine. Neither Dante, Wayne, nor Frank would look terribly out of place in that game. Also, why are the screens 576p and jaggy?

More importantly, when are we going to see some in-game footage?! HAIR BOOT!

I don't have a problem with her design. It's certainly different from the typical big boobed blonde bitch you get in videogames, and the librarian specs are a great touch in my opinion. She looks weird, certainly, but that's in keeping with the game if details are to be believed.

agreed. I just have a feeling it's gonna be too similar to DMC, but I'll reserve judgment until I actually see the game.

This is Platinums high profile title, yet it's also the least interesting of the three announced projects (at least so far). Both Mad World and Infinite Line look a lot cooler, more stylish, ambitious and overall interesting...

You guys can keep your lolipop rape wishing females, because when in motion you'll see just how awesome she is.

The main character is weirdly proportioned, and the city environment would have looked great two years ago, but now looks pretty bland and uninspired.

That said, the credentials of the people making it are impeccable, so if the gameplay comes through, the aesthetics won't matter one iota.

What the hell are you smoking? This game just reeks of awesomeness. She has guns on her ankles, her costume is made of hair (which is also her source of magic), and she uses a big ass Katana!

What the hell do you want, man!

I hope Kamiya can get it right with this, I'm pretty underwhelmed by both Ninja Gaiden 2 and Devil May Cry 4 this generation. I really need a good action game. :/

This isn't some two-bit developer guys. This is Kamiya and the old Clover crew we're talking about. Bayonetta is going to be incredible.

I'm loving the designs. The more absurd the better. She's like the female mirror image of Travis Touchdown.

Yep. Which is why I wish they would stop be so fucking secretive. :( This and Madworld are like my last hopes for action games this gen.

Agreed. They really need to differentiate themselves from the pack, imo. Hopefully the gameplay will do that, because the settings and atmosphere we've seen so far sure don't.

It looks like that's where she puts her other two guns when she has a sword in her hands.

I wonder if that's a slight redesign or just a different equipped weapon for her boots. The heel-guns looked better, but if it's just a different weapon then I can't really complain. The katana wasn't apparent at first either. Her hair also looks different, but that might just be the light.

That's some awful wacky-jappy anime shit.

Thankfully, in this genre art direction and gameplay are usually inversely proportional, so it'll be probably awesome to play.

Is there an actual reason why the angel's wings look like novelty balloons you get at a carnival?

That's what threw me off. I worded it wrong. Those are different guns it seems.
