Hideki Kamiya's 2012 comment:

After Bayonetta was released, I was coming back on the bullet train with Yusuke Hashimoto, pondering various ideas for sequels or spin-offs to Bayonetta over a beer. I never thought we’d actually get to announce a sequel to her story, so I am absolutely over the moon.Even though there has been a bit of a gap since the release of the last game, but I still got lots of request for a sequel from gamers.We were secretly making one the entire time.

Will pass on Bayo 2.

Cant get myself to buy a WiiU for just one game.
Whoa, whoa, whoa. New threads for new news, man. You're blowing my mind here. Seriously though, you might as well wait and see what's announced by then, because I doubt Bayonetta 2 is releasing before holiday 2013 at the earliest.

I don't understand why they haven't put demos from those Wii U events on the eShop yet. I doubt it'd be all that difficult.
The Rayman demo seems to be a modified version of the same demo used at the event. Hopefully more are on the way (Pikmin and W101 would be rad).

How are these guys making so many good games in such a small time? How big are they?

WTF is this Wonderful 101 and why haven't I heard of it? Kind of reminds me of Viewtiful Joe.

I'm surprised you haven't heard of it. There was a huge thread on GAF about it at E3. It was one of the first third party games showcased on Wii U at E3.

Most interested in TW101, low interest in Bayonetta 2 (just completed the first) and MG:R, no interest in Anarchy Reigns.

Reminds me of those lineup reel videos from last gen...sorta like that Gamecube disc that had the Metroid Prime 1 and Smash Bros Melee trailers (which is a good thing).

EDIT: I'd like to see Platinum make a shoot em up or some sort of action RPG.

Wow, I always assumed Platinum was relatively small.

Makes me wonder how they sustain themselves. Do they manage to turn a profit in spite of relatively low sales, or are their creditors that generous?

They don't own their IPs so it's been Sega footing the bill all this time, and Konami and Nintendo more recently.

RE: Anarchy Reigns: Technically came out in Summer 2012 in Japan, as Max Anarchy.

RE: The Wonderful 101: It's the new WiiU project by Hideki Kamiya, guy who created Bayonetta.

RE: three PG titles this year vs. four this year: Well, if we get the three upcoming ones, and if you count the West getting Anarchy Reigns, that's kind of like four, no? :p

I'm not in the picture. I was off doing random white dude things in a random white dude country.
No doubt which would then lead us to love and appreciate you all the more ;)

That showreel seriously gives me the goosepimplies and makes me proud to be a gamer.

Love Platinum Games! Will get all 3 on release date even though I won't own a WiiU until a new 3D Mario/Paper Mario and Smash Bros. get released.
