Celebrate the Launch of Bayonetta 2 With the Many Accolades and Delights of Bayonetta

Nintendo has released Bayonetta 2, their hot new action game from the talented folks at Platinum Games.

The title is currently sitting at a 91 aggregate on Metacritic, and to celebrate both the high scores and the game launching, Nintendo has created a new trailer for the game, which you can view above.

Despite the game’s expected hyper-sexualization and completely over-the-top action and violence, it seems to be universally praised by other outlets for its polish, fun, and (of course) its characters, especially the titular witch herself.

    My thumb up is specifically for the Bayonetta 2 special edition (I’m going first print myself – not sure if it arrived yet), but I did get a laugh out of the second half.

    Just ordered my copy this morning and will soon have my Wii U layaway payments finished just in time for my birthday! :D

    Can you take another picture of flipping off Antia’s twitter account as well? :D

    No. I have nothing against Anita. She’s fine to voice her opinion all she wants, as uninformed as it is. (Or Jon’s opinions). But McIntosh is a 1st class, 48 carrot wanker. Short answer no. Last thing we need are anti GG’s using it as fuel.

    I really want to play Bayonetta 2, but it’s not enough for me to consider buying a WiiU yet.

    Musings of a poor PC gamer. :(

    Bayonetta showing up in Smash Brothers would be a very well kept secret.
