It’s always interesting to hear from game developers on Twitter, you always get a sense of what it must be like to make a video game. Earlier today Bayonetta 2 Creative Director JP Kellams gave followers an interesting look at one particular part of the video game development process when posted a tweet about the Wii U exclusive. Specifically, the part of the game development process that involves dealing with whiny fans: I hate posting anything Bayonetta 2 on our Facebook. Not because I hate Bayonetta 2, but because I hate the pedantic port-begging. — JP Kellams (@PG_jp) December 11, 2013 It seems some people can’t get over the fact that Bayonetta 2 will absolutely be a Wii U exclusive. Enough that they continue to bother the game’s Creative Director on Facebook at least. So what do you all think of this? Are you excited for Bayonetta 2 on the Wii U? Let us know in the comments below! local_offer bayonetta 2 Nintendo Twitter wii u stars Further Reading Nintendo loses patent appeal, ordered to pay Nintendo was brainstorming about Switch when Matt Lambourne He’s right. It’s exclusive because Nintendo showed enough faith to pay for publishing. If the fanboys want to play it, buy a Wii U. Nintedward Then they say something ridiculous like ”I’m not buying a Wiiu for just one game” . Well, why don’t you buy some of the other Wiiu games then? If you don’t like games like Pikmin 3, 3D world, WWHD , MK8 , Smash bros etc, there is something wrong with your taste lol. Gameonfool haha its not thier taste, they just think they wont look mature buying nintendo games. but if you think shooting people in the face makes you mature then mature you are not. That said mature people can still enjoy shooting every one they just have a different attitude about it. ScrewAttack I still just can’t fathom how this “mature” mindset came about. What the hell happened, has the gaming community reverted to their single-age-digit state? They’ll be talking about how many girls they’ve held hands with next. Justagamer LOL Justin Clark I almost wonder if it’s an effect of the fact that for so long (in America at least) those who played video games were viewed as immature boys. Who were too young to date and probably couldn’t get a girls number if they wanted to. Now that gaming is more of a mainstream pastime you have all these games where “it’s about war son! Manly shit! Fast cars! Score the chick!” Indie gaming has really helped though. Other than a couple of the big studios indies seem to be where the real creativity and imagination is at. Like that “No Man’ Sky” game looks very interesting. Alienfish I’d say the problem is the new generation of kids that are playing games and seeing their dads playing mature titles so they feel that to be mature, you have to play those games. Twenty years ago it wasn’t video games that made you mature, it was cars, sports, and hunting, which are still viable options today. Guesty pooh! I’m 42 years old and have grown up alongside gaming, I started playing in 1978! Gaming was classed as a fad that would never come to anything, how wrong they were. I love everything Nintendo and have never been embarrassed buying Nintendo products. I play mostly what people these days call kiddie games with my 2 daughters, I only play the so called mature games when they are not home. I’m sick and tired of people putting games into categories such as hardcore, mature, kiddie or whatever the hell people categorize games as. Games are video games, not mature, kiddie or anything else you like to call them. I buy games for fun, not the rating on the front. We never had ratings 35 years ago, they were just games. Enjoy games for what they are not what console, category or rating is stamped on the front. Take it from an old gamer, life is too short to pick a side, enjoy your hobby before you realize you’re 42 and you’re ranting on a webthingamajiggy. Alienfish I’m just sick of people mis-categorizing games. Hardcore titles are games that require a lot of time and attention and often have staggering difficulty. Games that fit into this category can be bloody or not, it’s all about the involvement of the player. Mature games are just that, they contain things that little kids shouldn’t be bothered with at their age. Kiddie games are games that are made for kids that most adults would find too simple and/or unchallenging. The problem is that people blur the lines between mature and hardcore and throw everything not mature into the kiddie box. Bob Wilkerson Sad part is that there are more non-mature (in both age and mindset) playing games rated M than gamers that gamers that are mature playing games rated E for EVERYONE!! blindtiger its gotta suck to be so mature all the time… luckily i have a massive penis and can play all the mario dk and zelda i want! ScrewAttack That wooshing noise? That’s the sound of the point flying riiiiiiiiiiight over your head. Rich Garriques this happened when xbox came with halo , activation came with call of duty and rockstar came with gta IV. it started this ignorant mindset among new gamers and children whos parents dont pay attention to what games they buy them they just buy them to make them happy. and ignore the fact that these games aren’t appropriate whatsoever. Jacob D. Taylor This is one of my favorite concepts to think about 🙂 People, when trying to develop a preferable image of themselves, do so by labeling it in a fashion that is seen in a positive light. I wish I had an off hand example at the moment but just as few adults will eat Mac and Cheese or grilled cheese sandwhiches because they are too childish, many people when they reach a certain age do not want to identify themselves with what is in general viewed as ‘childish’. As Nintendo games are ‘childish’ in their eyes or generally viewed as a family friendly company these individuals have to absolutely separate themselves and abstain from ‘childish’ activities in their entirety. The term ‘mature’ is then their way of doing so. ‘Mature’ people don’t do childish things, and Nintendo is childish therefore ‘I’ do not play Nintendo games or systems. The misconstrued definition then extends as a definition of themselves. Since they are ‘mature’ and they love watching giant titties and unrealistic amounts of blood poor out of people’s eyeball’s those things are then (by association) ‘mature’ activities. ‘Mature’ is also used to misinterpret the word ‘innapropriate’. There is content that is just plain innappropriate for kids or even otherwise of a certain age or level of cognitive development. Maturity does deal with one’s ability to comprehend and therefore deal with certain types of content in life but in no way does it actually refer to one’s mental capacity. Just because you play M rated games does NOT make you a mature person, it just means that you play content that is innapropriate for younger audience. In a somewhat separate but related topic, there is also a substitution effect, just as mac n’ cheese and grilled cheese are too childish, but indubitably delicious (mass opinion, not 100%) they then need to find a ‘mature’ substitute, something that will provide them with the same satisfaction but not actually touching the embargoes substance. Grilled feta panini’s and Fettuccine Alfredo… in actually these are the same fucking thing as mac n’ cheese and grilled cheese with a little flair in preparation as to look different enough. But what are they? Cheese grilled on bread and pasta with a cheese sauce. ‘Mature’ games at this point are two things: The first is a completely misconstrued associative definition of oneself and the mindset they associate themselves with and a paralleled in importance disconnection with the actual definition of mature and their version of ‘mature’. That is all. metalpants Which is pretty hypocritic given that most of my friends that are getting a PS4 are doing so solely because of Kingdom Hearts III… *facepalm*… which is nowhere near release, mind you. Hipster Victor Lool I was gonna do the same thing…..until I find out Kingdom Hearts along with Metal Gear Solid V won’t be coming till 2015 nin-10-doughfan absolutely! DragonSilths Or they say “But it would look so much better on Xbox One or PS4, cause Wii U isn’t even stronger then last gen.” Nintedward Yes. Except Mario 3D world looks twice as good as Knack and runs at 60FPS whilst Knack is 30FPS 😛 3d world literally looks twice as good as Knack. DragonSilths Agreed. jdiaz1994 They claim to not want Nintendo games and then argue that Nintendo should become a third party. They are pathetic. Nintedward Exactly! What a bunch of asses. Antonio Jose de Sousa This game is one of the reasons I bought a WiiU. I loved the first game and I’m looking forward to buy this game too. 🙂 nin-10-doughfan right on the money! Hipster Victor You see.. Magnus Eriksson This is probably one of the few third party titles I will buy for Wii U. But I hope they’ll consider to go multiplat. Ive just bought a PS3 and XBox360 to play third parties on instead of Wii U. My Wii U is a first party only machine. Just ordered Rayman Legends for PS3 and Assassins Creed IV for XBox360. TwinTails Even after Nintendo said they would consider going bankrupt before doing that? You’ve got balls saying that on a Nintendo-only site. Magnus Eriksson Nintendo wont go bankrupt. But hopefully they go third party 🙂 TwinTails You didn’t even listen to what I said! Since you CHOSE to ignore my point on what they actually stated, you deserve every comment that brands you as a troll. Bobby P. Please dont turn this site into Ign’s comment section. Plz and ty D.M.T So…you decided to buy the inferior version of Rayman Legends for your last gen 3rd party console? I thought you was smarter then that Magnus but whatever lol, Magnus Eriksson Tsk… I buy all games that are available on Wii U. Would never buy a PS3 or XB360 game if its to be found on Wii U. You shouldnt belive all crap im writing. Rich Garriques i hope your telling the truth , you scared me for a second there MetroidZero I recommend the /sarcasm tags. extremethunder Sorry but its Nintendo’s call to make the game multiplat, not Platinum Games. And as Platinum Games has stated, you might as well ask Nintendo to port over Zelda. It would be a horrible business move for Nintendo to port over a game (that they are 100% funding & publishing) to a Sony & Microsoft console. Magnus Eriksson But its horrible for Bayonetta to sell 25K games at best. Rich Garriques wow beyond an idiot , first of all rayman legends is definitive for wii u its ment to be played on wii u the other versions are hashes compared to it. second assassins creed IV is far superior graphically on wii u compared to 360 one it has so much more features. extremely bad choice you made im ashamed you mentioned this what a epic failure. Magnus Eriksson Why? Because you dont like it? Why cant I spend my money the way I like? Im not obliged to support a company that does not support its own product. Zorpix Want Bayo 2? Buy a Wii U. Nintendo fans have had to do this in the past for way more games. I dont see the issue 😛 Sydney Ultrasyd Want bayonetta 1 ? Buy a PS3 or XBOX 360 😀 Seriously, people are begging on Wii U too haha. http://img11.hostingpics.net/pics/3274505202.jpg I wont buy Bayonetta 2, not my cup of tea, but i’m really excited to see how it looks, and how many players it can brings on Wii U ! Justagamer Nah I’ll pass on that Zorpix not mine either, but I’m interested in seeing how it does Justagamer Meh Fboogey Cannot wait for Bayonetta 2! All Nintendo fans better get out there and buy this in droves!! Cause we complain nintendo does no new IPs and no mature ips then when they do we dont buy. Wii U Install Base is 4 million so I’m expecting at least a million in sales! Y’all better buy this or I’m getting out the Pitchforks! Batman Batman approves Carlos Eduardo de Souza Most gamers complain that Wii U doesn’t get enough exclusives from third-parties and, when it happens, they say that it doesn’t make any sense because it’s on Wii U. So what’s the point?! harelsen it’s because you are insta cool if you hate on nintendo. moreover! most people look at nintendo and say it’s for 7 and under. In my country, a company like best buy have verified the wii u and wii under the same category and in the description it said “the wii u has a good library of games for kids”. blah blah Sad… jreed3842 I kind of wish people would realize the difference between “Appropriate for Children” and “Made only for Children.” Lil J Moore Guys you all better support this title. You can’t complain about third party titles if you don’t get them on the WiiU. Get this game guys Bob Wilkerson I plan to… Wish they would port over Bayonetta 1 as I would pick that up too. Played a little bit on a friends PS3 and liked it. I almost picked up a used copy of Bayonetta 1 for my XB360 but have been holding out just in case the game is ported over to Wii U along side Bayonetta 2. Justin Clark Don’t be port begging 😉 RyuNoHadouken .. Bob Wilkerson Touche` Kind of ironic though. But I guess the difference is when Bayonetta 2 comes out and if Nintendo says they will not have the game ported over I will just get it on my 360 and play it and then get Bayonetta 2. I only mentioned it because Platinum games brought up the topic that the game could be ported if Nintendo authorized it. Justin Clark Haha I know. I played it on PS3 and would buy it again if they brought it to the U. It is a good game. I just couldn’t let the irony pass by. RyuNoHadouken they should release Bayonetta 1 on the same disc…file size cant be more than 5 GBs ScrewAttack I’m not even a hack n slash fan…but I’ll give this game a go cos Platinum’s my dawg. Ell Yeah, Kamiya’s showed his annoyance at them on Twitter too, can’t blame either of them SmashFinale Port Bayonetta 2 on Wii U ple- OH WAIT. Ninja Pirate Day 1 purchase for me! Bob Wilkerson What I find hilarious is that some of these beggers find no issue that other consoles/platforms have exclusives and in order to play them they have to get that platform but when Nintendo gets an exclusive they feel it is OK to demand that the game come out for other platforms. Especially an exclusive that Nintendo itself funded and is the publisher on. Equally hilarious (and sad) are the whiners that say that they want to play Nintendo games but refuse to buy a Nintendo. They make statements like “I would play these games if they came out for “My Favorite Console” but refuse to buy a Nintendo console because it is for kids”. RyuNoHadouken i own all consoles, but if it wasnt for that, i would never play a Nintendo game either…i still have yet to purchase SM3DW and I probably wont…Mario,DK and even Zelda are played out to me…so, when I see a game like Bayonetta 2 being announced only as a Nintendo exclusive, it pisses me off that no one else decided to fund this game…this game would benefit so much more from the processing power of PS4 and XBOne…i feel as if my Wii U purchase was for nothing…anyone that says this console has met their expectations so far is a liar and just looking for an excuse to make them feel better about wasting $350…im sure they will release some games throughout their life cycle that i will buy, but there is nothing on the radar that piques my interest right now Bob Wilkerson So the fact that I play games on my Wii U every chance I get and rarely play games on my PC and have not turned on my XB360 since like February must make me one of those liars huh? Except for the fact I am not lying. It’s cool if the Wii U and Nintendo’s games are not for you. Everyone has their own tastes but to make claims that the people that enjoy and are happy with what the Wii U offers are liars makes you an ignorant hater. Have a Good Day RyuNoHadouken .. Bob Wilkerson .. RyuNoHadouken .. Justagamer No point in feeding his hate … ScrewAttack That you’re still posting here fails to meet my expectations. Crawl back under the rug troll, go join the rest of your kin. Ryushi Why not purchase 3D world? Just rent it if you’re sure you won’t like it. It’s ridiculous how people play good games that have been completely remade a thousand times like Mario and then say, “It’s just another Mario game.” Just because it’s been done a thousand times doesn’t mean it’s a bad game, or it can’t completely remake the type of game that it is. 3D Mario World was far more deserving of GOTY from VGX compared to shitty GTA 5. I played GTA 5, and there’s exactly nothing different in it, just new city and three new people, exact same gameplay. RyuNoHadouken i dont like GTA either…but gaming since the NES days, im tired of Mario Justagamer Now i can agree that maybe it’s tiem to give mario a break now because 3d world is awesome but the nes days are gone and time to change with everyone else Nintendo is know for these type of games and you knew that when you bought you’re Wii U You want different type games than you have the other two and i not even hating on you man im just a gamer who games and i hope you find some peace and find something you will like for the Wii U and don’t forget the cool indie games on the Wii U as well RyuNoHadouken i just hope Zelda has a style like the tech demo or i will throw my Wii U down and run over it with my riding lawnmower Justagamer Fair enough but i hear the new zelda will be bigger than shyrim RyuNoHadouken Nintendo needs to make something with real life graphics…enough of this cartoon crap Justagamer Get 3d world because alot of the back gronds are ro real looking it blows my mind Nighcrom You want real life graphics? Go play pretty much every other game that has come out recently. To be honest, I am sick to death of the “real life” look in video games lately. Call of Duty, Tomb Raider, Assassin’s Creed, Grand Theft Auto, The Last of Us, etc… all of the big titles recently have gone for the “look as realistic as possible” approach. These are by no means bad games, but the hyper-realistic graphics… personally, I find them boring. They ironically take a lot of life out of the picture for me, because everything just looks so dull. Nintendo doesn’t do that. Nintendo’s Wii U games may be cartoony, but at least they’re full of color, life, personality, style, and soul. It’s just how I feel, but I’d rather be in a world with wacky environments, enemies, and quirky charms than some world that just feels like an emulation of something I may see if I look out my window or take a road trip. RyuNoHadouken you obviously feel a sense of butt hurt…good day Lord Carlisle Oh, so you think fantasy games should be realistic? Yeah, that makes perfect sense. RyuNoHadouken Zelda’s tech demo is a good example of what i want them to do with the next installment Lord Carlisle Those were great, yes, but I wouldn’t call them “real life” graphics. And that’s a good thing. MetroidZero Your comment goes well with your avatar! LOL NintenScience Get a life. RyuNoHadouken silly mortal Guest You are a mortal as well. Stop imagining about religion. Simon Stevens now now, there is no need to be upset Simon Stevens As Nintendo fans and fans of exclusive games to the system, we’re probably not gonna think like you “Wii U purchase was for nothing” but yeah, in my case, your right, it hasn’t met my expectations so far, not to say I haven’t enjoyed it though because I’ve loved it, I just figured at least one football (soccer) game should have been available, kind of sucks that it wasn’t, I still like playing those kind of games with friends when they come over (pes) and I’m disappointed that there isn’t an up to date version for the system, I won’t go into tech specs with you because it would be pointless, a game like Bayonetta 2 for what it is doesn’t need the processing power of the ps4, it looks fine the way it is, but that’s jus my opinion, I know a lot of people who buy Nintendo systems solely for exclusive without liking a single Nintendo game except maybe Metroid or Zelda so I understand that, and I respect that, but remember, when you talk, your talking for yourself, only an ass assumes everyone feels the same way. Justagamer I say he sell his Wii U and move on because the guy has no desire for Wii U and if he did he would not be doing this console war crap RyuNoHadouken im not doing a console war anything…im just stating the obvious..i defended Nintendo my whole life, including the Wii debacle, but I cant anymore…Nintendo needs a change in leadership…theyre running themselves in the ground Justagamer That maybe true but if you have lost faith in Nintendo than stop buying their stuff RyuNoHadouken my son likes mario and zelda Simon Stevens The Wii U doesn’t represent the whole company, look at their handheld, look at their merchandise, toys and clothes too lol as a company their fine, I’m sure their working hard to change things on the Wii U front, just have to wait and see how it pans out RyuNoHadouken we’re talking about games on this site, not merchandise Kevin Malone Yeah, but if we’re looking at the viability of a company, it is important to note that Nintendo is a sprawling franchise, not a mom-and-pop that cannot absorb many risky or failing ventures. Rinslowe And their risks are mostly in plain sight so us consumers and investors can see… They’re not taking too many uncontrolled risks anyway. Not for the amount of cash they hoard. Billions in the bank and Billions in assets. They have a healthy business going all things considered for sure. 🙂 But that’s not to say, Wii U isn’t a problem not needing fixing… It’s a work in progress. And I’m hopeful. Justagamer How was the Wii a debacle it sold over 100 million units..Yeah really a debacle RyuNoHadouken not talking about sales…BF4 has sold millions of copies, but its shitty from a technical standpoint Justagamer Not really and how a games graphics look is not what everyone cares about..Graphics alone don’t make the game it’s if the game is fun and has a story but their are some who just care about graphics and that is not what matters RyuNoHadouken im not talking about graphics either…im talking about how i have to try for 20 minutes to get a MP match and how it kicks me back to the main menu all the time RyuNoHadouken i will buy the next NEW Zelda, Metroid and hopefully a Star Fox game comes out…other than that, i will never buy another third party game on Wii U. Simon Stevens You mean First party right?, I’m sure there’s plenty of great third party exclusives up and coming we don’t even know about yet?, X, your surely buying that right? Justagamer Is X a rpg hack in slash type game? Simon Stevens So far all I know is that’s a jrpg 🙂 in the line of Xenoblade, so I imagine it’s similar to that but probably better, that game was epic enough already lol RyuNoHadouken nope, i meant third party…Xenoblade is a second party game…there is no such thing as a third party exclusive Simon Stevens huh… you learn something new everyday 🙂 second party then? RyuNoHadouken second party is a game developed by a studio, not owned by the hardware manufacturer, but commissioned by the hardware manufacturer to make an exclusive game for their hardware Daniel Gonzalez That would be true if Monolith Soft wasn’t owned by Nintendo. 😛 Bob Wilkerson Pretty Sure that is only true if the game is also published by the first party. RyuNoHadouken .. Bob Wilkerson Not really… I consider who the publisher is of a game a pretty important detail. Rinslowe X can be labeled as both first and second party. Monolith Soft has autonomy on their products despite being practically owned by Nintendo outright. But they will be called upon to also make Nintendo owned IP’s as well, making those titles; first party. Personally I agree in the technical sense for above reasons X is a second party title. Bob Wilkerson No such thing as a 3rd party exclusive? Really? ZombiU has something to say about that. Developed and Pubkished by UbiSoft and exclusive to Wii U. I am sure there are others for various systems too RyuNoHadouken partially funded by nintendo, so no Bob Wilkerson Pretty Sure Nintendo did NOT fund ZombiU as it was stated this game was developed and published by UbiSoft for the Wii U as the game was designed around the gamepad in mind. In fact Rayman Legends was going to be the same way but ended up going cross platform because UbiSoft was not pleased with the sales of ZombiU and the Wii U console at the time. Of course if you have any facts to back up your claim I am willing to see them but I have read on other sources like game magazines and such that ZombiU was done totally by UbiSoft. Rinslowe Arguing that there are no third party exclusives is just plain silly my good man… And Nintendo did not need to fund Zombie U. They also didn’t fund Sonic Lost Worlds afaik. They have an exclusivity agreement with SEGA for another few titles but that’s not the same thing. Daniel Gonzalez Monolith Soft is a 1st party studio as Nintendo owns 96% of the company. That makes Xenoblade a 1st party game. Lol. RyuNoHadouken my bad…i thought namco still owned them The Clockwork Being First party game man. Its by Monolith Soft you know. The ones that made Xenoblades. so its first party; Guest Actually Xenoblade is a first party game. MonolithSoft was bought out by Nintendo making them a 1st-party studio to Nintendo, long before Xenoblade was even released in Japan. RyuNoHadouken yeah, we established that 3 days ago…i thought they were still owned by namco Rinslowe Wow, Deus Ex was certainly the best experience on Wii U. I’m hoping Watchdogs can achieve the same deep gampad integration as well. And then I’ll get that version for the same reason. So third parties can have their definitive place on the platform… As there’s more to a game than power alone. As you already know, I’m sure. That’s coming from a guy who paid literally thousands on a gaming rig which most would consider just a wasteful act of insanity. Justagamer Then sell it and stop complaining here..it proves you hate Wii U..sell it and move on…Use the money for the Wii U and buy you some games you like and that will be it RyuNoHadouken stop crying like a little $#@!% Justagamer Not crying guy just pointing out a fact…U mad bro? RyuNoHadouken never that Justagamer Yep Lord Carlisle Now why did you have to stoopso low as to say “U mad bro”? Justagamer Just felt like..I was bored NkoSekirei ignore him dude hes just retarded Justagamer I do but sometimes you have to take a stand Simon Stevens His Jimmies are rustling, do you hear it? Rich Garriques nooones crying obviously by you saying that you made your retarded troll comment to get a reaction like the lame you are. RyuNoHadouken womp womp womp Hipster Victor Well then give it to someone else then. No one’s forcing you to puchase it. Thats your choice if you love Bayoneta so much, you could have wait later and then buy it. You may not like it but the majority of Wii U owners are very pleased with it. So calm down and ejoy the damn thing Superstick98 Ok first of all you apparently have a Wii U so you can get Bayonetta 2 no problem. Why complain? Secondly, no offense, but you have got to be stupid to not purchase SM3DW. It is one of the best games I have ever played on Wii U and it was definitely worth the purchase of my Wii U. I have all 3 consoles as well, so don’t pull the fanboy excuse on me either. Until you get SM3DW, Pikmin 3, and WWHD, there really is no excuse to say there’s nothing to play. Simon Stevens dem games though ;`) beautiful Cdwoods I’m enjoying it so I guess I’m a liar. It also met my expectations. Man, I am a big liar. RyuNoHadouken liar Rinslowe It met my expectations. When you got an entertainment cave for playing SM3DW like this buddy. And every other great title I love in larger than life gaming… Deus Ex, NFS, WWHD, even Pikmin 3… You know the sound effects in W101 are some of the coolest when through a dedicated sub. Factor in Gamepad support. So call me a liar, but you better mean it. Don’t just be argumentative. Got the 360 set up as well + PS3 for bluray. X 3 (as in the cherry) so you don’t miss the point lol… 😛 I’m happy for what Wii U does for me as an individual. And when I want real “POWER” lol,… I’ll be in my office with a + 9k PC. Yeah and you read me right…. RyuNoHadouken gay Rinslowe Lol, you being so butthurt is palpable. Priceless… If that’s gay then you should show us all again how real gaming is done. 🙂 RyuNoHadouken i was just messing with him…lol…dont get your transformers thongs in a bunch Rinslowe I was just messing with you, sunshine. Your sunny disposition is just awesome! Lol. Are you always so butthurt? RyuNohadoken says; GRRGH!! Aww man, classic…. Rrr Grrr – puff huff… 🙂 Rich Garriques time out where do you get off spewing that garbage , so im a liar for enjoying wii u more then my 360 , ps3, wii and pc? and let me add i barely ever ever touch my 360 and its been that way for like 2 years now , the last time i touched it was to play lost odessy in the summer , these days i can barely handle a half hour session on that thing. Lil J Moore I just had a pointless argument about that on gameinformer. He told me he was broke to buy a WiiU, but then stated he was going to buy a Ps4 in three days. So he’ll pay for this game and a system that would cost over $500 but not a system and this game for $430. People’s logic sometimes. Rich Garriques wow who was that , hes the perfect example of a illogical troll Hipster Victor That is called being a two faced bitch buddy. Which is pretty sad just because Nintendo (could) make not as powerful hardware, that doesnt mean its for kids. Guest That’s what happens when a console manufacturer publishes a game. If it was M$ or Sony it would be just as exclusive. Cyrus Colin, you made a typing mistake. You typed “Earlier today” instead of “Earlier than today” (or simpler: yesterday). Colin Malone Ah, you’re right. The reason it says “earlier today” is because I had written this article yesterday but it took until today to get it published, so it’s a bit out of date by now. Thank you for pointing it out though. I can’t edit it now that it’s been published, but it’s still good to know for next time. wober2 Jeez, why do people refuse to buy the system if they like the game? RyuNoHadouken same reason why i wouldnt buy a vita just to play uncharted golden abyss….and i LOVE uncharted Lil J Moore I don’t buy a system for one game. buying a system for one game is stupid. There are other games on the system that I like to try out also. RyuNoHadouken i would never buy a system for one game either metalpants Man, you’re really bitter, aren’t you? Lol! What the heck did Nintendo do to you?! O_o So far I have absolutely no need for a PS4 or X1. Wii U has become my go-to entertainment center. I have like 13 AAA games (some of which I’m still working on and most are 3rd party, :o…) and at least 2 more in mind to get before the end of the year. All must-haves so far AND next year my wallet will be crying even more just with the confirmed stuff and the flood of top-notch indie games coming out. I honestly haven’t let my Wii U rest since I got it when it released. Not just games-wise but also by using the browser daily, way more than my laptop’s (I’m typing this from the GamePad right now), use it for Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Video, and any other online video stuff I can’t get in those services through the browser. All my entertainment needs are met without a hitch. And there’s off-TV play if somebody needs the TV, xD!!! Can it get better than that? Probably… but not for this price and what you get for it 😉 Rinslowe Nailed it. wober2 I think people buy systems because they like the companies brand. You can usually find decent games on all the platforms now-a-days. just waiting for ps4 and xbone to get some… 😛 wober2 Same thing with vita it has some decent games. To me it starts with one game I cannot live without and a console at a fair price. Almost all the consoles anymore are not going to be disappointing/mistake. ps4/xbone are selling like crazy without great games, just on the promise that there will be some later. I have never played uncharted but i might of bought a vita by now if it was into it. If any of the consoles gets a fallout or elder scrolls game instabuy for me 😀 RyuNoHadouken well, Elder Scrolls Online and Fallout 4 are both coming to PS4 and XBOne wober2 yeah i know i will probably pick up a ps4 this june when elder scrolls online releases. if I can afford it :/ I just do not like when people get mad about exclusives. I really think it’s a good thing to have companies constantly trying to out do each other to bring people to buy their consoles. I am getting excited for this slump in nintendo sales, it might bring around some new ip or they might take a risk to with more adult themes… Matt Elgie Play them on a underpowered Xbox or PS4. No thank you. I will go to my computer instead of using hardware made years ago. RyuNoHadouken then why do you own a Wii U?? Matt Elgie To play NINTENDO GAMES. Have played since I was a kid and still are the best games hand downs. That was a terrible question. RyuNoHadouken you obviously missed the point i was making…you were talking about “underpowered hardware made years ago.” Matt Elgie No, I got your point. The Wii U has nintendo games, and off screen play for me, and good 3rd party games as well. That is the draw to nintendo. I do not want to be playing on a system that is suppose to be “next gen” when it cant push out the same performance as my computer I have built. Rinslowe X isn’t so that’s two reasons to buy a Wii U… Wren Justin Umlauf I just wish the creators of Deus Ex would have held true to their word like these guys. Rinslowe I guess the major difference is in the fact Nintendo are the backers for this one. Eidos probably made a pitch to Nintendo, something along the lines of “you guys are having a hard time with your platform, ports aren’t doing so well…. How about co funding our project to keep it exclusive or we believe we’ll have to go multiplatform to cut a profit” and Nintendo said….”No”. End of story. Wren Justin Umlauf They wanted to keep the game exclusive, but the fans wined enough that they brought it to other consoles to. “You asked for this” was their quote on that Rinslowe Do you really believe that though, really? It’s easy to say it was the fans – they whined so much Eidos caved in. And maybe you’re right, maybe… But maybe it also had a lot to do with seeing all that interest in the game being ported and the fact that Wii U was struggling that the guys who are paid to market the game decided it’s better to make money in every pocket so as to maximise the chances of financial reward. As opposed to certain financial deficits. At that point, maybe just maybe, Eidos decided lets pitch the current situation to Nintendo and see if they’re willing to meet us half way? And it looked as though the answer to that was a no… Wren Justin Umlauf I think its both honestly. I was really excited for this game so I was doing a lot of research and following it and what not, but sadly I havnt gotten it yet. (The delayed release date made me lose some interest, still want it though.) Anyway, it was clear how excited they were about the game pad and the special features that they could only have on the Wii U… sort of. When they saw the potential sales with the other consoles I think they realized that many people wouldnt actually buy a Wii U just for this game. So they added new features via smart glass and the vita, but in my opinion that was a huge waist of time and money, especially for the Xbox’s smart glass. As far as them actually going to Nintendo, I’d say there is a good chance that could have happened, but I don’t know if I believe it actually did happen or not. Rinslowe I’m on my second playthrough now. It’s really the definitive version. I played the original PC version so… Gamepad integration is second to none. Absolutely fantastic… Visuals are pretty clean. No issues there and the performance is stable. Strangely though Nintendo have been nailing their controllers sensitivity settings from day one. But many dev’s seem to be having a rough time in getting it right. The level of dead zone on the sticks takes a little getting used to. Like AC, you can’t really use it for precision until compensating. But after a while and pushing the sensitivity to max on both planes the experience can be decent. The story was also interesting but not as epic in scope as the Mass Effect series. But those different play styles are no joke. You literally can take it any way you wish and the boss fights are infinitely better than before. I always go stealth when available so it was nice to be able to play that nearly the whole way… You should pick it up. You won’t be disappointed by the Wii U version, seeing as though it’s the best one out there. 🙂 Not to mention the MiiVerse community is a definite plus. Wren Justin Umlauf Maybe if I get a little extra cash for Christmas Ill pick it up. I had the original version on the Xbox, I loved the game, but when I found out abut the Wii U version I stopped playing it half way so I could play the better version, so I know I’ll love the game. Just a matter of finishing all the games I have now and then buying that one. harelsen i can’t wait for the awesomeness!!!!!! 😀 SmashFinale OH…. I finally figured out why i couldn’t see who makes the articles. My Adblock was blocking it XD Lil J Moore Happened to me a couple of times. lol danger The Wii u was a day one purchase for me, and Bayonetta 2 was my main reason for buying the system, I was not going to miss out on what is sure to be a awesome gaming experience. Virus6 Rayman Legends was the reason for me… too bad that got ported over and delayed -_- Blazenwing I just love how people sit there and go “Wii U sucks, it doesn’t have any games I care about, Mario and Zelda are for babies!” and as soon as a game pops up that is exclusive to Wii U and of interest to them, they start screaming for a port. XD Daniel Carvalho A title comes to PS3, PS4, XBox 360, XBox One, PC, iPhone, iPad, DS, 3DS and Wii but skips Wii U; fans ask the developers to bring the game to Wii U; everyone’s reaction is “stop being such a pussy, quit playing kid Nintendo games, go buy a PS360 if you want to play it”. A title comes exclusively to the Wii U, everyone starts complaining that it should be multiplatform. Hypocrites… buy a Wii U if you want to play it so much! Rinslowe I like Tit’es in the plural. One is just, not right. But all true. Daniel Carvalho Oh, didn’t see that, sorry. Fixed! ^^ Rinslowe Lol, I’m just being a jerk… I agree with your points 100%. Adrian Brown I want Bayo 1 on Wii U, I’m not buying a 360 just for that. Wait, is it the same case? Daniel Carvalho I’m like this when it comes to third party titles: if it comes to a Nintendo console, I’ll get it, but it doesn’t, I’m not going to buy another console just for it. I prefer to save the money I’d spend on a console to buy more games that are being released for my video game. Wanting a game on your platform isn’t being hypocrite, telling everyone else they should buy your favorite console because the game they want is in yours, but then bitching about an exclusive title for other platforms, that is being hypocrite! Adrian Brown I understand you. I’m getting a PS4 next year, but I’l get the third parties that I want on my Wii U (plus the first parties, of course), like Watch_Dogs and Assasin’s Creed. PS4 will be just for the exclusives. Jon Nintendo is the publisher for this meaning they paid for it. If they people have a problem with it, then they should buy a Wii U, if they don’t want to, then they need to get over it. There are games on the other consoles we want but they won’t get ported and same goes with Nintendo. If they cannot except that, then they need to grow up and get with the real world. Nothing5555 If Bayonetta was a pure 3rd party published games then by all means it is fine to beg for a port. Jon yes… but this isn’t the case and people know that, if they don’t they are just sad. InterTreble If I like pizza, I’ll go to a pizzeria. If I like movies, I’ll go to the cinema. If I like Nintendo exclusive games, I’ll buy Nintendo consoles. They are always trolling Wii U because it doesn’t have all the games Sony and Microsoft have, and now they want a game which 400$-Sony-console and 500$-Microsoft-console will never have? Just buy a Wii U and stop trolling… it’s also far cheaper. Petri Some people compare this to Nintendo gamers petitions and other port “begging”. But the huge difference is, games Nintendo gamers are asking ports for, are not funded by Sony or MS. And this game is the only reason why I own a Wii U. Hoping big things from X too. Mike I might buy the game just because of the developers support of WiiU. palomino blue I’m in the same boat. I didn’t play the first one. It looks good enough but I really want to encourage this sort of behavior from other 3rd parties. icebear80 I’m with you guys on this. Virus6 I’ve been doing that. I’ll enjoy the game nonetheless so… Justagamer Hahahahaha Well here come the cry baby’s again out of the wood work..crying because the game won’t be coming to PS3 and xbox well if you want to play Bayonetta 2 You will have to but a Wii U or you are out of luck.. Get over it…It’s a Wii U only game Simon Stevens Nintendo funded the game, why should they port it?, can only imagine how the fans are coming across “why make it for Wi U, it isn’t powerful”, “Bayonetta deserves to be available to the hardcore” “The game isn’t Nintendo” blah blah blah, brb I’m gonna go ebeg me some Kingdom Hearts and Final Fantasy XV SleepySkullhead I really appreciate that this is going to be a third party Wii U exclusive that STAYS that way for once. For that (among other reasons) I will definitely buy this game. Fred When I saw the headline here I thought he was going to complain about all the people that are begging for the original to come to Wii U Sydney Ultrasyd Wait guys, he probably refers to the people asking for Bayonetta 2 on other systems, but ALSO people begging for a port of the 1st one to the Wii U ! http://img11.hostingpics.net/pics/3274505202.jpg InsaneZucchini That’s different. Kamiya has already said he’d like to bring the first Bayonetta to Wii U before the sequel comes out. They need to sort it all out with Sega and Nintendo though for that to happen. Because Sega is the publisher and a third-party publisher it could actually happen, Bayonetta 2 for PS4,Xbox One, etc much much less likely. Quicksilver88 I think they should let Platinum port it and Sega publish it on eShop onl for like $20…..then sell it a few months until B2 comes out and bundle the code for the first one and also give a $10 break to B2 digital buyers that bought B1…….. Petri JP Kellams @PG_jp11 Dec Nah. I’m totally down with that. 🙂 Not my call though. RT @delta2kbr: Even Operation Dead Angels? ;_; (answer to someone asking follow up question about the tweet on the article) But still, they should direct their request at Nintendo and Sega. Petri I personally would love to Nintendo secure a prolonged 2nd party deal with Platinum Games Quicksilver88 Agree……aren’t they the team behind V. joe and then was it no more heroes or mad world on Wii? They are a unique company and add a lot of flavor to a Nintendo system…..W101 is so different, edgy, fun……..it is a total shame it has bombed so bad…..people are just sheep as they have bought a mediocre COD game this year but passed on great efforts like Rayman, W101, and Lego City……fun is apparently just not cool. Rinslowe HIdeki Kamiya doesn’t need to answer every bloody tweet, does he? I think the guy might just be classic mad genius *but with unfortunately low people skills. What a downer when such notable dev’s go off the deep end like that. JUST IGNORE ALL THE REPETITIVE SHYTE…. It’s really that easy, treat it like spam and kick it down the line… Theiz Zzee I think it’s silly for folks making a big deal over this. He just explained his reason for not posting on a website. For those that don’t like the game being on the Wii U exclusively that’s just tough. Nintendo users have dealt with it regularly and turn about is fair play. 🙂 oontz So two wrongs DO make a right! My parents have been wrong this whole time!! 😉 Theiz Zzee Lol wober2 cmon people! save up to buy all the consoles and games 😀 Nighcrom I don’t think it’s right for people to get angry at the creative director or at Nintendo. Nintendo stepped up to help make this game actually happen after Sega abandoned it. Would you want something that you helped make to be released for your competition? If it weren’t for Nintendo, this game wouldn’t even be in production at all. Entropyguy It’s weird. People said that there aren’t any ‘hardcore’ games for the Wii U, so why bother getting it. Then one comes out, and people complain that it’s on the Wii U. :- majora :D Because most of people don’t like the Wii U and want to bash it through all means possible. Not that I agree, but it’s true. oontz No most gamers (wiiu users included) can only afford one system. It’s okay for them to want to play this on systems that aren’t nintendo’s but seeing as Nintendo owns the rights… It’s never going to happen. tom In my opinion Bayonetta 2 needs to sell at least 500 k to be a success. I heard nothing but fantastic things about the Wonderful 101 before the release. Now the game has been out for about 3 months and it has sold a wimpy 90k ! This is one of the most creative games i have played in years. So Nintendo fans suck it up and pick up these quality titles! Rinslowe W101 is a niche title at best. It’s fantastic, I was an early adopter. But I just don’t see broad appeal. The masses will have a better time with Bayonetta’s style of story and violence, being very DMC – GoW – MGR-R ish… Jared Garcia Nintendo needs another enviable game to be exclusive like Virtua Fighter. Say what you want, but it’s a very high quality 3D fighter. Quicksilver88 I wish they would make some more deals with sega…how about a Skies of Arcadia or new one….. New Shenmue or Crazy Taxi or remember Sega GT? Sylux “I won’t buy a WiiU for just one game.” hmm? Maybe you won’t but I will. Either I’ll have a WiiU before Bayonetta 2 launches, or I’ll buy a WiiU with that game (bundle perhaps?) Petri I bought it just for Bayonetta, and now I have 28 retail games + some eShop titles. But I think people who really wants this game, and likes what Platinum Games does, will get over it, and get a Wii U. Rodger Jamjet Hahaha poor babies, get over it you idiots and buy a Wii U NkoSekirei yep they need to grow up Rinslowe Platinum should just ignore it, suck it up and be grateful Nintendo swooped in and saved the franchise. All things come at a cost. Exclusivity is Ninty’s right. It’s understandable that fans from other platforms would want to play this game. But if they want it so desperately, then go out and buy a flippin Wii U you hypocrites! Madmagican This desperation reminded me of all the fanboys making character requests for Smash Bros That shit is overwhelming companyoflosers asking them to make bayonetta 2 multiplatform now that nintendo owns it is like asking them to make mario multiplatform. its not gonna happen, EVER. get a wii u and stop complaining. Greg Freeman we can’t play gta 5 or a real cod game and not the gimped visions they put out we can’t get dlc with out devs lying about how underpowered wii u is (when its not some games look better on wii u then xbox one*) or it can’t run frost bite which is bs wii u ran unreal engine 4 which is far suppior then frostbite we lost metro last ligh so with all that fuck no u ps4 and xbone onwers cant play go buy a wii u like activision told me when i found out they lied and wii u is getting annother gimped port! Coffee Nintendo fans can handle not getting final fantasy 15 but Sony and Microsoft fans can’t handle getting not bayonetta Says everything, I can’t miss out on final fantasy 15 though 🙁 oontz I’m a sony and Nintendo fan, and I have no urge to play this game. oontz It will probably still be released on other platforms (do to sales) unless Nintendo has secured lifetime exclusive with the title. You never know these days, one day a title is exclusive… The next day it’s on other platforms. extremethunder The thing is, Nintendo is paying for this game’s ENTIRE DEVELOPMENT. They literally own the Bayonetta 2 game. Even if PG tried to port it (which they cant) Nintendo can put a halt to it. Games like Ninja Gaiden 3 Razors Edge (that Nintendo only handled the publishing in one reigon), Resident Evil 4, Rayman Legends, … none of those were outright funded by Nintendo. Bayonetta 2 however is. oontz you may want to brush up your reading skills… I clearly said, “unless Nintendo has secured lifetime exclusive with the title.” NkoSekirei bayonetta 2 is for only the wii u not for other platforms period and nintendo is the one funding it and i wouldnt be surprise nintendo will fund for a 3rd one if the second one does really well which it will oontz “if the second one does really well which it will” Glad to know you can see into the future, and with confidence determine the game will be a success. You don’t have anything to base that prediction on, at all. You are also in no position to say what the developer or nintendo will use to gage it’s success. For all we know the game may be great but not generate enough revenue to allow a third. This has happened many times already this generation on many platforms, not just wiiu. NkoSekirei dude stop talking out of ur @$$ troll seriously i wasnt predicting anything and all i was saying it will do well cause of how many people that want to play bayonetta 2 that didnt get a chance to play the first one oontz How exactly am I a troll? NintenScience http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Troll_(Internet) oontz I know WHAT a troll is, but how are my posts in this thread considered trolling? NintenScience I have seen you get people angry… oontz if someone gets angry it automatically makes you a troll?? HA HA HA. NintenScience … RyuNoHadouken this game will not sell well because its rated M…they just dont do well on Nintendo platforms NkoSekirei ur an idiot dude cause A:bayonetta 2 is only for the wii u and people that want to play it will have to get a wii u which some people are willing to do.B:during the time wen most of us were still playing the wii and many of us wanted to play the first bayonetta but we all know it wouldnt come for the wii cause of wii spec issues but with the wii u and nintendo funded the sequel we finally get a chance to play it and if u havent seen many trailers of it then maybe u should reconsider on getting the sequel cause the graphics of it looks sick and amazing but trolls that are whining like bitches that its not coming to other consoles need to get a fking life period end of story. RyuNoHadouken no one is going to buy a Wii U for Bayonetta 2…you’re delusional Guest NOT delusional* NintenScience No… oontz Wow down voted for supporting Nintendo… you crazy wiiudaily! Guest Before you hate, let me just say I am an avid Nintendo fan. I have supported them for at least the past decade. I own every Nintendo console to date (starting from the NES, I don’t have the G&W and whatnot)… I’m really not trying to be a dick/troll, but this game looks fucking gay. I’ve enjoyed basically every other game Wii U has to offer, this just looks retarded. I’m being serious, can someone please explain to me why everyone is so hyped about being a chick that kills centaurs? Guest I want a serious reply/explanation, because I can almost guarantee if this was on Xbox One or PS4 no one would have bought it. So are we just this desperate for an exclusive? Quicksilver88 Well for a new IP with an edgy theme the first game didn’t sell terrible I think close to 2mil. Platinum is awesome and I am sad W101 has sold terribly…..i think Nintendo should buy Platinum and use them to keep building hardcore games to develop that segment….. Spike Ashford I wish people would just get the fuck over this already! If I can live with KHIII not being a Wii U game, then these fuckers can live this Bayonetta 2 not being Playstation/Xbox title. Matski Oh right yeah, we really hate it that people want to play our game! jesus I love my Wii U and Nintendo games but some of the developers are so far up their own arse its incredible! HungryMetroid the developers are annoyed because even though they’ve said it’s exclusive, people are too hardheaded to grasp the concept and keep demanding it on other systems. Matski As a developer I would just try and stay humble and happy that so many people want to play the game. I think the fans must just assume if they keep asking they may well get, if a company sees all of a sudden a huge market potential then perhaps they will consider porting it? although I am assuming Nintendo have quite a tight licensing agreement. At the end of the day, its a major game developer on Twitter….what does he expect?! its bloody Twitter!! get over it or just leave Twitter! extremethunder PG been telling these people that the game is exclusive (and why its exclusive) for over a year now. But these so called fans ignore him and keep spamming him to port the game. devmiles keeping this a wii-u exclusive is a very dumb action since it won’t sell well enough, plus it’s very logical people ask for this since the first bayonetta was ps3 x360. bayonetta is quite hardcore already so don’t expect the average nintendo gamer to buy this… go PS4 and Xbox1, that’s where the money is at. Justin Clark Nintendo paid to have the game made. They are fully publishing it. Without Nintendo the game would have never been made. Also since they are the full publisher any profits, or losses, they will incur. Platinum has already ready been paid for their work on the game. NkoSekirei nope ur dumb troll.Nintendo is the one that saved it and fund it so no it will not come to other consoles period and end of story readypembroke Never played Bayonetta but might get it for Wii U if there is ever a Wii U port, it not then for Xbox. There are so many games for Wii U and I don’t have enough money (like $10) will eventually buy Super Mario 3D World in a month or so. John Madsen lets see here half naked chick with a set of bad #$% guns I’m there Bobby P. One very annoying thing that I’ve seen way too much is how there’s these people saying “I’ll buy it only when or if X happens…” But even when that one game they were hoping for gets annonced, they only move on and look for the next “if/when” comment to make. Some of these individuals just like to think they know how to run Nintendo better. Jacob D. Taylor Well, as much as I’d like Infamous, GTA 5, Halo 5 and others on Wii U apparently that’s reason enough for me to get a PS4/XBONE. Exclusives ultimately sell systems (except for the whole Sony vs. Microsoft thing, I don’t really know what goes on there). If you want Bayonetta 2, go buy a Wii U. Simple isn’t it? DelsinRowe People beg for this crap game? Gust Theses people have probably never heard of the word system seller. If you like the game buy the console. It’s not fair that nintendo took the interest and money to develop a games that had been abandoned yet people expect them to port it to the competition.
