    First, I love how you use the official video embedd instead of ripping it and uploading it to some crappy player like Joystiq and other gaming websites do often.

    Second, the voice acting made me cringe but the gameplay looks AMAZING. It was like watching a high-quality action film. I’ll need to steal my bro’s Wii U for this game

    • Kobracon

      Its DMC quality cheese-cake VAs, which I find charming enough to laugh at XD

  • kurosan9712

    Watched it in japanese, and hell, they’ve done japanese voices this time, and done them right.
    Bayonetta by Tanaka Atsuko is PURE WIN.
    If I’ll ever get a WiiU, it’ll be japanese one(just like 3DS) and my version of Bayo 2 will only be japanese.

    • PrinceHeir

      where’s the Japanese voice stream?

      fun fact:

      Atsuko Tanaka was originally going to be the Japanese voice actor for the first Bayonetta game due to her voicing Bayonetta in one of the commercials and Platinum Games inquiring her.

      for some reason they didn’t do JPN voice.

      but i always wanted to hear Atsuko Tanaka more ever since i heard her as Bayonetta.

      she has this sexy MILF voice that i always love to hear :)

      even most of her characters she does this in anime XD

      with Tanaka also doing the anime Bayonetta Bloody Fate, it’s good to hear that she’s also returning for the 2nd game ^^

      i hope for dual audio for this since i love both the Japanese and English voices ^^

      hype as hell for this!!

      • kurosan9712

        Well, it was going on the same time as European and US stream at

        I love her voice as sarcastic/sadistic characters.
        Loved her as Astrid in Arland Trilogy of Atelier series.

        • PrinceHeir

          my favorite is Motoko from Ghost in the Shell, Lisa Lisa from JoJo ^^

          yeah, she can be playful most of the times XD

  • 罪罰

    That kid has the yu gi oh thingy, time to duel.

    • Budgiecat

      Kid: “Wanna card battle?”
      Bayonetta: “fuck outta here” *knocks cards out of kid’s hand*
      Kid: *sad pandaface*

    • Elvick

      That’s exactly what I thought when I saw it too. xD

  • PrinceHeir

    Bayonetta looks sexy as hell :D

    i kinda prefer her original look in the first game, but man seeing her more now, it changed my mind and i love the new look ^^

    i do hope they have an unlockable costume from the first game or even DLC(which hopefully not Platinum Games)

    and i can’t believe Sony didn’t took on the offer when Platinum approached all three companies. i mean this is the perfect game to showcase some Japanese lineup for PS4.

    i guess their more concentrated on their US branch with all the first party games being developed.

    • Budgiecat

      Her heads still too proportionately small for her body

    • DrForbidden

      I like her short hair, to be honest.

  • PrinceHeir

    nvm! i found the Japanese trailer on the official Nintendo JP Channel :)

    the Lumin(?) Sage is voiced by Takehito Koyasu, Dio-sama!!!

    love both voices!!!! let this be dual audio like Vanquish, Platinum Games!!!

    • Kobracon

      Whoa! Interesting….I love Bayo’s english voice but Dio is tempting….

  • LastBoss

    Dope!!! SEGA, with the stage homage to Space Harrier. That jet stage is straight out if Nightshade as well.

  • Anime10121

    Man, why does everything I want for Wii U NOT have release dates yet :(

  • Nhiroz

    Who’s bright idea was it to keep it exclusive to the Wii U? #sadpanda

    • 罪罰

      the ones who funded the game.

    • Derpazu


    • Kobracon

      Are we still asking this?? Its been answered to death….

  • KingNigma

    Cornrows kid looking like he came straight from Yu-Gi-Oh, even having the egyptian puzzle thingy on his chain.

  • 武神水樹

    I missed you

  • CosmicNova

    I which all the best to Platinum Games. Because I seriously do not see how this game is going to sell well on one console.

    • Kobracon

      When has any of their games sold well without a name like Metal Gear? Ppl who love P* know that their shit will never sell well….

  • $61526767

    As much i don’t have a WII U. I will probably get this game day one with a wii u.

  • DrForbidden

    I dunno. For some reason I have an uncomfortable (though probably unfounded) impression that the cornrowed kid was created because Nintendo insisted on having a young playable character for the WiiU’s younger demographic.

    • Heisst

      …appealing to the younger demographic in an M rated game?

      Also, children don’t want to play as children, they want to play as the badass adult marine.

      • DrForbidden

        You make it sound like nobody below 18 has played GTA games before…

        But yeah, your other point is a good one.

  • HarryHodd

    I miss your long hair. Yes

  • Kobracon

    Wow that boy/girl looks alot like Ieyasu Tokugawa from Basara….. And did I see him playable for a small amount of time???….sure, if he/she has an awesome moveset (which c’mon, P* knows how to make a character interesting to play as) then by all means, the more the merrier.

    Also, epic brofist at the end m/

    • TrueDefault

      Pretty sure the kid is a boy.

  • Elvick

    Looks awesome.

  • bloodiOS

    You need to see it running at 60fps to really appreciate how good it is:

    • Trailer:• Gameplay:

    • Sal Romano

      Added the downloads to the post!

    • Bobby Jennings

      Definitely! It just looks amazing.

    • AdamBoy64

      Whoa. That looks amazing.
      Really, really good.

      Thanks for the links.

  • LunarHaven

    Bayonetta reminds me way too much of random office women with her current hair etc. They def. made her look blander IMO

  • ayb_91

    I personally would like to thank sony to refuse of developing such a great game. Every time I see a trailer of Bayonetta, I go crazy.

    Congrats to WiiU owners. I hope you really like it.

    • bloodiOS

      Maybe Ninty simply has the quicker hand. Beside, given Sony’s financial situation, they weren’t exactly in the position to acquire and fund the development of an IP that is more than likely to flop (like all of P+ original IPs.)

      • ayb_91

        To flop? Can’t you see how successful the game is? Plus, many fans are begging for the game to be ported to both xbox360 and PS3. Well, it happened and it is a sad story indeed, in my opinion.

        • bloodiOS

          Successful? The original sold poor enough to discourage Sega from funding the sequel, and let’s face it, they like money just as much as any other publisher but Bayonetta simply wasn’t successful enough to warrant more funding.

          • ayb_91

            Bayonetta is not the only game that faced such a financial problem. For example, Zero Escape Virtue’s Last Reward also. I meant by successful here as a really good game, but unfortunately they don’t sell well because lots of people like shooting games.

            • Bobby Jennings

              That is such a bad excuse. Just because westerners seem to love shooters doesn’t mean they don’t play any other game.

              I myself play tons of shooters. But I also love playing JRPGS and fighters.

              • ayb_91

                I respect your opinion pal. Note that I didn’t say that they “only” liked shooting games. The main factor here is, unfortunately, the money. That’s the sad fact everywhere.

                • Bobby Jennings

                  I felt like you heavily implied it. Sorry about that. :/

                  I can say for a fact that most people I meet on Gears of War play different games. If anything blame the developers because they keep trying to get that Call of Duty money and it’s not working.

                  Mindjack from Square Enix is a good example

                  • ayb_91

                    No worries friend. ^_^

                    The only good thing that SE has made, in my opinion, was KHII. I mean really, before it combined with Enix, it was called Square Soft. The games of it back then was reaaaaally incomparable to these that are made now.

                    So yeah. SE is being such a bi**h these days. Not to mention FFXV’s forever laziness of development and cancellation. Wish I could cast Esuna on them though.

                    • Bobby Jennings

                      Lightning Returns is good. :/ you should try it.

                    • ayb_91

                      I got it day 1. I bought every FF from 8 to XIII-3 except the MMO ones. It is good so far, but the story is really not good enough. If you know what I mean.

                    • Bobby Jennings

                      Yeah the story’s terrible.But the combat is so rewarding.

                      I only wish they stood with the traditional level up system like they were going to. Dunno why they changed it.

                    • ayb_91

                      Exactly my point. The leveling system is way worse than ever. Increasing the stats by completing always-time-related quests?? Not to mention that they don’t provide enough info. Such as, the girl who lost her green doll in the chaos. How the hell would I find it !? Lol.

                    • Bobby Jennings

                      Yeah xD, but I don’t except them to hold your hand if you know what I mean. Thankfully the combat is near-perfect and enjoyable. if it weren’t for that, the game would probably be a fail.

                      its a shame that this game won’t get the recognition it deserves.

                    • Anime10121

                      I’m liking what I’ve played of it so far too.I’m no fan of Lightning, but so far, everyone else’s story has been pretty good so far… plus, I’m liking the battle system so far, still wouldve preferred an action based system over the current one, but this one’s at the least, more engaging than the ones from its prequels…

                    • Anime10121

                      Please dont tell me you’re saying KHII is in ANY way better than KHBBS D:

                      Also, you dont think TWEWY, Nier, or Drakengard were any good :(

                    • ayb_91

                      Wow. So sorry. I missed those games. Would you forgive my rudeness? Lol.

                    • Anime10121

                      Its understandable since most are handheld games (well besides Nier/Drakengard), but yeah, I just see SE get a lot of undue hate, when they still release a lot of quality software. Now I’ll admit their console output hasnt been anywhere near as rocksteady, but they do still put out quality software, unless you just play home consoles…

                    • ayb_91

                      Unfortunately yeah. I only play home consoles. Thanks for being such an addicted guy to trophies. :/

              • buddyluv324

                I think what ayb_91 is saying is that in the US, shooters are a huge ( and oversaturated ) market in gaming. Why do you think there’s a CoD game every year and other titles like Halo, GTA, and Titanfall always seem to get the biggest press buzz from gaming sites. The truth is games like the Zero Escape series and other titles that try to break out of the mold dont always make the most bank.

                • Bobby Jennings

                  There’s also a Atelier game every year.

                  Call of Duty simply comes out every year because it makes that money.

    • CosmicNova

      I never heard Sony refusing to develop for this game. Did Platinum Games even tried to ask MS OR sONY to fund this IP?

      • ayb_91

        Yup. They did refuse to develop it. They refer to MS and sony of course.

  • Skerj

    Whyyy can’t the Wii-U be region free!?

  • Bobby Jennings

    Jesus christ the game looks gorgeous.

    And so does Bayonetta herself <3

  • karmacoma

    Unlike the rest of you, I really dislike the Japanese voices. Not that I *have* to play games dubbed, but I played the first one in English so I want to hear a sultry British babe and not-Joe Pesci.
    Anyway, since this is PlatinumGames, it’ll probably have dual language support on the disc, so we should all be happy.

    I’m glad they seem to have retained the 60fps gameplay.

    • Kobracon

      I’m with you on that. I’m usually the first to switch to JP voices but games like DMC have always been english to me and can never be anything else. Jap Dante just sounds so weird to me. As does Jap Bayonetta

    Was that a milliner Puzzle ad 1:09?

  • Locksus

    I-It’s fucking perfect!
    Give it to me now!
