Bayonetta 2 update on the way?

Platinum Games fans should keep an eye on E3 next week. The studio’s JP Kellams has teased news from the Bayonetta and Metal Gear Rising developer on Twitter.

“In E3 news, if you are a PG fan next week is going to be awesome,” said Kellams.

Platinum currently has The Wonderful 101 and Bayonetta 2 in development, so it would probably be safe to expect those.

    Kind of disappointing if they don’t have any new game to announce…

    • SuperLuigi

      I would say bay 2 is still new since we haven’t seen ANYTHING about it besides herself and a villian or somethin.

      • bloodiOS

        But we already know that it’s coming. I kind of expect that they would have some unannounced titles hidden under their sleeves for this year.

        • SuperLuigi

          They did wanna make a star fox. That would be crazy if they were approved of doing that…if retro isn’t already making one.

          • bloodiOS

            I don’t think Nintendo would wait around for them to do it. Maybe the next installment?

            • SuperLuigi

              Depends on what retro is up to is my guess.If retro does SF, then I doubt platinum will ever get to touch it.

  • Derpazu

    Bayonetta 2 multiplat after all!

    • bloodiOS

      Not as long that Nintendo is funding the game.

  • Lynx

    Infinite Space 2 please.

    That’s never happening and it makes me sad.

  • disqus_rIjnBIKvqC

    Platinum Games can go fack emselves if they dont take bayonetta 2 so it can go multiplat,its one of the best hack n slash games ive ever played and they just ignore 90% of the fan base and decides that WiiU gets,only shitty games on wiiU.people who have played bayonetta and loved has dreaming for a bayonetta 2 for years,and when they finally do it,its for wiiU,WTF. im not getting the wiiU just for bayonetta2,I refuse to belive that bayonetta2 have died if nintendo didnt support the development,Sony or MS should have pitched in so it can go multiplat.

    • bloodiOS

      Nintendo funds the game so what do you expect? Do remember that it was Sega who refuse to cater to us fans and decided not to fund the game. Nintendo only see it as an opportunity to take for themselves. And since they are the one funding the game now, we’ll never ever get to see it on another platform unless Nintendo somehow goes under (tough chance of that happening.) We only have Sega to blame here, so don’t misplace your anger.

      • disqus_rIjnBIKvqC

        ye,its not only Platinum fault,your right,its sega to and nintendos and sony. for not getting it to the PS and to nintendo for taking it,and sega can go and screw self to.
        Im not gonna get the worst console,playing on a big ass controller with screen on it with crappy games,I mean its none games that interest me on nintendo,its just the same old donkey kong,zelda,mario over and over again,nothing new.if 20-30 god of war games would have been released over the years I would have been hating it.

        • bloodiOS

          It’s okay, chill, man. It’s just one game. You’ll live through it. But you’re right, Sony not snatching the IP for themselves have indeed been quite a missed opportunity.

          • disqus_rIjnBIKvqC

            for me bayonetta is more then just a game,its one of the best games on H&S genre,and they just piss on the fans that bought bayonetta in 2010.

            • Anime10121

              3 words, buy a Wii U.

              I mean, its not that hard (not even that expensive especially if you go cheap like me and get a basic). if you really want to play the game, buy the console you need to play it on. Hell I bought one exclusively for Platinum games, as I dont even care much for Nintendo franchises, barring Kirby and Smash, but now I have The Wonderful 101, Bayo2, Sonic, Xeno-whatever, and Smash to look forward to. Imo those titles will make it worth it.

            • Farid Belkacemi

              If you’re a so called “fan”, you’ll buy a Wii U to play Bayo 2 ;)

              • disqus_rIjnBIKvqC

                Moderator- Please don’t post if you just want to troll.

                • Claude

                  He said Wii U, not Kinect.

                  • disqus_rIjnBIKvqC

                    I know what he wrote.

                    • bloodiOS

                      That’s the point, you CAN sit still when gaming on Wii U. It has a controller.

          • KingNigma

            I admire your patience.

  • Nhiroz

    Hope its coming to PS3 or Xbox 360 as well :-) :-) :-) :-) :-)

    • bloodiOS

      Put that hope to rest, it’s not happening, man…

    • artemisthemp

      I think Platinum Games is going for PS4 and DRM BOX.

      Hopefully will be better than Bayonetta

    • SuperLuigi

      Not happening. Nintendo funded AND helped develop this game.

  • Zackasaur

    No thank you.

  • Tac-Mex

    I am just going to leave this here

  • Tac-Mex

    I am going to leave this here

    • SuperLuigi

      Even if they show kh3 and XV(versus) dont believe them till they announce a real release date. But that would give me more hype for ps4.

    • Raoni Marques

      I’m gonna go crazy if they announce Kingdom Hearts 3, I really will.

    • Raiyu

      Already confirmed fake. Kingdom Hearts logo is from a fan page.

    • Lynx

      That’s fake.

      Look at the zoomed up mouse icon on the Realm Reborn logo.

    • Nice Boat

      That has nothing to do with this

    • Sal Romano

      Don’t post this image. It’s fake.

      Also, this is unrelated. No need to come into a Platinum Games post to talk about Square Enix.

  • Kobracon

    Anarchy Reigns 2?! Please?

    • PrinceHeir

      man that reminds me i need to get around with that game!!

      i haven’t played that much since January lol

      anything Platinum related i’ll be watching :D

  • Nice Boat

    “Metal Gear Rising developer on Twitter.”

    AAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHH!!! You have to… calm down Freesun… For a second I thought you basically confirmed Rising 2 It would be awesome but it’s too soon.

  • Mar Mar

    Why the hell every company is teasing us before E3??

    I’m gonna stop reading gaming news till E3 2013 >_>

    • Farid Belkacemi

      Because they want you to get HYPED :D

  • Ritsujun

    Metal Gear Rising: Re:Revengeance

    • Zackasaur

      I got chuckle out of that.

  • Emdimian

    they better be fukin announcing that konami passed development of zone of the enders 3 to them

  • Pyrofrost

    Man, some of these comments here. It’s like some people post whatever immediately pops into their mind without a modicum of forethought.

  • Nitraion

    Hope they have more game for other console beside for WiiU…
    but maybe next time

    • Chestnut Bowl

      Yeah, I was thinking the same thing. Looks like Platinum will continue their tradition of high-quality software with miserable sales.

      • Nice Boat

        Actually considering how good Nintendo’s marketing is, they could have really great sales. Also Platinum’s president already said they had awesome sales with MGRising

        • Chestnut Bowl

          MGR is a part of a long-running beloved series on consoles with two large and active install bases. Platinum’s two upcoming games for the Wii are on a poorly-selling console. The Wonderful 101 is a new IP so that already has things going against it. Bayonetta 2 is a sequel to a game that was released on systems with larger install bases, cutting out a large part of the base. Things are against them.

          • Nice Boat

            The original Bayonetta had disappointing sales according to Platinum’s president which is why only Nintendo found a sequel okay. MGR’s sales have been credited to Konami’s marketing

    I’m barely allowing some of the comments in here to stand. I’ve restored some that were removed. I’m sure everyone knows which comments I’m referring to. Please remember to read the guidelines before posting. Thanks.

    Continue on with the discussion~

  • z_merquise

    I’m hoping it’s a new game so we can have 3 games to look forward to Platinum.

    Still looking forward for more Bayo 2 and The Wonderful 101 updates in E3.

  • Elvick

    Vanquish 2~

    If only… if they could refine that game a bit it would be perfect. (being able to jump down/slide off ledges would be aces)

  • Spicy Chicken

    I know it’s more than a little random but I just have to mention that one of the ads/external story titles that displays at the bottom of the page reads:

    How to Dress Like a French Woman – Suite101

    Pffft, if only!!! Now that would be a fashion trend I could get behind (and all puns NOT intended! :P)

    Ahem, back on topic, as one of ‘those’ people that refuses to own more than one console for each generation, it’s a shame I won’t own Bayonetta 2, but still I’m glad it’s happening. Hopefully, it’ll do really well, the other publishers will get their act together, and by the time 3 hits (yes I’m already thinking that far ahead) it’ll be back on PS/multi platforms. For now though I’ll just have to settle for any and all artwork I can get for this game. Hopefully there’ll be an artbook for this as there was for the first game so I can least get hold of it that way and still show my support. ^_^

  • almostautumn

    Fingers crossed for a title not exclusive to the Wii U; I really love their games, and Platinum have absolutely roared into one my top 5 devs out there to date— but I just don’t want/can’t afford a Wii U, and so realllllly hoping they got something secret planned for reveal.

    Also; we need more cigarettes in video games, and I will be genuinely dissapointed if they don’t make this happen.
