Bayonetta Gets Her Own Official Amiibo


Platinum Games has announced an official amiibo for Bayonetta 2.

You read that right, the brunette dominatrix will get her very own amiibo in celebration of Bayonetta 2’s two-year anniversary.

The above image was shared by game director Yusuke Hashimoto over on the Platinum Games blog. Hashimoto teased fans saying that’s all he can share for now:

“I’m afraid that this little taste is all I can give you right now, since we’re still working hard to get her just right. But I assure you that we’re going to capture everything you know and love about Bayonetta – every detail down to the exact sizes of her glasses and eyes – and bring you an Amiibo that’ll meet your every expectation.”

A release date was not announced.

    Meanwhile the Marth Amiibo’s final product got butchered.

    Well, Nintendo barely makes games these days so they’ve got to make money somehow.

    I swear, these things are gonna be the majority of Nintendo one of these days. They could at least do a better job stocking them and lower the price bit, 13 dollars for a figure with DLC is a tad bit much. Maybe that’s just me, I don’t know.

    You can tell how cheap it is just from that little shot of her face.

    Yeah, I’d rather see a full figurine or something compared to these Happy Meal quality things.

    Didn’t Bayonetta 2 do rather poorly in sales? Can’t imagine anyone still caring enough to pick up a bayo amiibo

    Bayonetta is entering the limited physical DLC business, I see.

    Wait, so is this going to be in addition to the SSB Amiibo which we already knew was coming? If so, that would be cool having a fig for both her character designs.

    Can’t wait for Bayonetta 3.

    Amiibos work fine when they’re stylized (I wouldn’t pretend for a second the Toon Link amiibo I own is great nevermind even able to compete with a nendo but it looks perfectly fine in my eyes) but the ones with more realistic anatomy tend to fall flat on their face.

    Bayonetta is not brunette as she has black/raven hair.

    Show the amiibo better if it looks messed up like the Palutena one I gotta pass.

    It sold about 1 million units on WiiU which was about as much as the first game sold on each the 360 and PS3. It’s honestly really good considering that before that point bayo 1 was never out on the WiiU and everyone and their mom were throwing hissyfits about nintendo funding it.

    You mean toys? You mean like how they used to make before they got into video games?

    The disappointment when Platinum’s tweeted “exciting Bayonetta news” and it just turned out to be a stupid Amiibo.

    Somehow I imagine that the lack of a date for an Amiibo means they will announce a game which supports it, though maybe I’m getting my hopes up.

    That’s funny. All of the new purchases I’ve made this year have all been high quality Nintendo games.

    Even if I wanted to, there are no games for other consoles to buy.

    Yet another great Amiibo for me to pick up.

    But I have too many games to play.

    Black/brown hair is considered Brunette.

    I’ve never heard anyone describe black hair as ‘brunette.’

    You know why?

    Because brown is NOT BLACK.

    That’s dark brown hair, not black hair. There is a difference.

    Don’t disgrace yourself. Amibos aren’t worth the glue.

    It’s quite a number of sales, specially considering how many people DON’T have a Wii U.
