Nintendo certainly knows how to start and end Nintendo Direct presentations, no matter how you feel about the content. This Nintendo Direct came in with a bang with the Little Mac for Super Smash Bros. trailer, showcasing the Punch-Out! star taking out the likes of Samus, Bowser, and even Donkey Kong. At the end, we got the above trailer, which is a special look at brand new Bayonetta 2 footage. Of course there was no release date given, but Nintendo made sure to make it clear that Bayonetta 2 is still on track for a 2014 release. Given that this was originally supposed to be a launch title for the Wii U, we hope we see this title sooner rather than later. What do you think of the new footage? local_offer bayonetta 2 Nintendo wii u stars Further Reading Legendary Pokemon coming to Pokemon Go The cost of Nintendo consoles in today's dollars Wii U gets firmware update Watch the Smash 4 EVO Finals on Disney XD Take a peek at this week’s Nintendo Dow 9 things you probably didn't know about Super Mario Bros. Skelterz I missed the part where this game is more important than something we didn’t know about already. Michael Hughes I was hoping for new titles, too, but Nintendo is presumably saving that news for E3. Create a hype wave and ride it into the holidays? We’ll see… GregoryTheRainMaker I know more than ever that I will purchase this game and X by any means possible. Mario I wish I could say the same for myself. GregoryTheRainMaker It’s fine..there are other games out there you can play. Mario I Know! But there are so many! And I have very few cash.

Skelterz You need a savings account bro you’ve been in the business like 3 decade get with the times lol, Or are you back on the stuff…i told you to stay away from those mushrooms, does peach know? Mario Nope. ETeach Don’t be jealous Mario, you’ve had some great games too. But right now it’s time to share the soptlight a little 😉 ETeach Hopefully now Soptlight catches on as the new term of the century. ZyroXZ2 After seeing them in action, I’m definitely on the bandwagon that the Wii U’s power is being underestimated… Donaald How much more until the game is released? This is exactly my kind of game. Ducked They said 2014, so probably not until the Summer at the earliest Guest *fanboy voice* I thought Nintendo was for 5-year olds. GregoryTheRainMaker My body is now ready. ZyroXZ2 Mine has been for awhile, haha Gardevoir Eliz Bayonetta 2 in full 60 fps godness people. chaeck up in Platinum site here -> http://platinumgames.com/2014/02/14/bayonetta-2-coming-to-wii-u-in-2014 NyallJodhan Thanks for that link. Looking at what they said about this being a sequel, I’m going to guess right now that the game is finished, and they are working on a port of part 1 to bring the two together as a package. rp17 Not related to the article, but they spent 20 mins on 3DS games. Then they are like here’s 1001 Spikes. Not gonna tell you anything about it… But that’s its name… They did release a video after the Direct though. (PS 1001 Spikes is like a 4 player Super Meat Boy with NES graphics) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZYlLNrJv7mg RyuNoHadouken Just release it already!! The Unkown I rather Platinum Games not pull an EA an release an unfinished game. Ducked This trailer did catch my attention, they should port it to Nintendo’s next console Daniel Gonzalez Nintendo Fusion. Ducked Even GameCube U would sound better than Wii U Daniel Gonzalez Agreed. William Martinez i really want this game, i love hack n slash and even better if it has solid story, violence and they talk about hell m/ uPadWatcher Two words– wait for it– MIND BLOWN! The bad news is Nintendo/PlatinumGames are gonna release it first in Japan. But the good news is that I’m megaton hype to see Bayonetta 2 launches in North America and Europe after the Japanese launch. linkzero65 ummm source?? uPadWatcher Ummm… this? http://mynintendonews.com/2014/02/14/bayonetta-2-coming-to-japan-in-the-summer/ linkzero65 ok 🙂 ZeldaFan83 Bayonetta 2, X, MK8, Little Mac in SSB, GBA games on Wii U VC and NES Remix 2…I think I just had a seizure from all the AWESOMENESS!! Erik To quote (well part quote) from Max Payne himself: “…like all the fires of hell were burning high beneath us … it was shakedown time.” As soon as i saw this trailer my face went frozen! I dropped my phone (lucky it didnt break) and just stared at my tv in pure awe. Sure its 2014, But cant we get at LEAST an estimation of the date? I would think it would be in AFTER Smash Bros. or during the holidays. More time to it would be better 🙂 Edit: If i were to meet her for real, I REALLY did miss her 🙂 McBlink Please don’t release it in the fall like W101, it will get buried by Xbox One and PS4 games coverage. August would be nice. GregoryTheRainMaker I don’t know about that…if Nintendo had more big games announced I would understand, but they need to end strong in 2014 and Bayonetta 2 is a strong game that can get some people who love sick action games to pick up a Wii U to play it. Besides the game is more established than W101 which is a fantastic game, but what is going to count more is how much advertising will Nintendo put behind Bayonetta 2 because they put very little behind the W101 which was a new title. oontz “Bayonetta 2 is a strong game” That’s a matter of opinion. Coming from someone who plays and beats 2+ games a month. I have no interest in buying this game, and I LOVE 3rd person action games. From what I’ve seen I’ll be passing on this. GregoryTheRainMaker That’s fine but just because you have no interest in buying the game doesn’t mean it’s not a strong game for Nintendo. It’s just something you won’t have the chance to play while everybody else who decides to pick up the game will. Simple. ZyroXZ2 After seeing this and ‘X’ in action, I have to say, the PS4 looks just that much less powerful… Sure it’s more powerful, but I don’t think I’ll notice a thing while I’m playing Bayonetta 2 and ‘X’, lol Ducked The Order 1886 and Final Fantasy XV will change your mind.. Daniel Gonzalez Both look great. Not sure if he’s being serious, or just a fanboy. Ducked I take it as he’s a fanboy as you might have found out yourself. The “I game on PS4, Wii U, and PC” thing lol ZyroXZ2 Considering I have a gaming PC, the graphics aren’t going to change my mind. I’ve played the PS4 with KZ:SF and Knack, and both have clearly graphical shortcomings. Add in The Order’s 30 fps, and I don’t think I’m going to think “OH SHI-!”, haha Ducked The Order is easily the best looking game so far from what we’ve seen in upcoming games. alex toschi There has hardly been any gameplay for that game yet. Maybe we should wait and reserve judgment. What looks good is subjective, Wii U games look great, PS4 games look great, everyone wins. linkzero65 agreed matt Once a console has 10million install base everyone jumps on…..wiiu is at 6.5 million now…. matt Look wiu has graphics equal ps4 easy and they will get better….. Metroid,Zelda,Eternal Darkness,and at a guess Monster Hunter 5 will all say hello at E3 also expect an amazing Resident evil just for wiiu….. ChariotMan7 Facts Man Gerald J. Howie II Witcher 3 says hi Ducked Yeah Witcher is a RPG right? The frame rate looks amazing RyuNoHadouken I have a gaming rig too…as well as all consoles…PS4 graphical capabilities are above par…us PC gamers dont get WAY better graphics…we just get more detail and better resolutions…you make it sound like we get a graphical leap like snes to ps3…thats not the case…Lords of Shadow 2 looks about the same on all platforms…PC version just has a slightly sharper image and slightly better lighting…nothing astronomical Petri Just like fanboys make it sound like graphics leap between Wii U and PS 4 is astronomical. Daniel Gonzalez PS4 games outshine graphically than any game on Wii U(not including cross platform games). Anyone with 20/20 vision can see that. That’s the funniest thing I heard today so far. That’s me being fair on both ends. As for gameplay, well that’s a matter of opinion. ZyroXZ2 Well, having played a PS4 but also having a gaming rig, I don’t actually see the PS4 as that impressive. Then I look at ‘X’ and Bayonetta 2, and the last thing on my mind is “Oh, would have looked so much better on PS4”. Daniel Gonzalez That’s the thing. PC is different compared to PS4 and Wii U, so there’s no point in even discussing those two in the same sentence. Speaking console wise, PS4 and Xbox One are clearly better graphically than Wii U and even in games built for it. PC has no place in the argument since we expect it to be stronger than any console. Don’t get me wrong, graphics aren’t everything and I myself prefer gameplay over it. However, those who are saying it looks better than PS4 needs their eyes checked. ;P ZyroXZ2 I never denied the PS4 was more powerful, but my point in bringing my PC into it was to let you know I don’t have vision problems and have a sense of what “great” graphics are, lol Daniel Gonzalez From the post, you made it seem that way to me, but thanks for clearing it up. I do have a good PC myself and of course it’s always going to be better graphically. Though, for a console, PS4 is quite a powerhouse. I just find it puzzling that people compared Wii U to PS4 in terms of visuals. Both have their good perks, and I’ll just leave it at that. RyuNoHadouken Witcher 3 blows this out the water linkzero65 playing games for graphics is like watching porn for the story matt WiiU has the most full HD games at 60fps also wiiu is custom everything ps4 is stock off the shelf hardware basically maxed out now,wiiu will get alot more powerful every year,a custom e6760 with tons of edram is beast,X,Bayonetta2,MK8 all look miles ahead of any ps4 game and that is a fact,X is open world with a confirmed no load times and 4 player co-op,Bayonetta2 is full HD 60fps with 2 player co-op,MK8 is 12 players online wow in them graphics at a rock solid 60fps all 3 run 1080p native……. Shinen are using 4k/8k textures on Fast work it out and Fast runs at 60fps and has online play…….. matthew garcia Dude none of those games are gonna look better then kingdom hearts uPadWatcher With the exception of one JRPG from Nintendo and Monolith Soft that’s gonna destroy Kingdom Hearts by any means necessary– X. matthew garcia U should look up metal gear solid, infamous 2nd son and kingdom hearts 3. If u put those in a wii u im sure it would catch on fire Levi Johansen The PS4 and Xbox1 uses alot of this extra power to make cross game video chat possible, to record the last 15 minutes of gameplay and stream gameplay online. I don’t really want any of these features so it matters not to me. Rinslowe I totally agree about this Direct being pretty good. The 3DS was very well represented and I’m looking forward to it. Wii U was kinda rushed in a way but the content was respectable, IMO. Absolutely cannot wait for Bayonetta 2. I sincerely hope Platinum games get’ there due on this one, through solid sales. If there was ever to be a Wii U Bayonetta 3…., 🙂 ZyroXZ2 I really hope Bayonetta 2 sees good sales, and I hope those salty Sony/MS fanboys don’t purposely go on some sort of rampage to try and get people NOT to buy it, lol Rinslowe Lol to any fanboy. Don’t be a fanboy, I just upvoted your video… Kindly refrain from replying to my messages to further an agenda. I get all Cranky Kong on that one… Daniel Gonzalez Good or bad sales, I don’t think fanboys will play any role in someone’s purchase. If people truly listen to the media or fanboys on what they should buy, then that is some funny sh*t. ZyroXZ2 Did you not see what those fanboys already did when Bayonetta 2 was announced as a Wii U exclusive!? Geez those people scare me… Daniel Gonzalez That’s the internet for ya. Lol. All fanboys are fools. When it was announced as a Wii U exclusive, I was okay with that. It’s one game and never even finished the 1st one. Those who bitched about it just like to defend their own console to no end. I remember when I made my opinion known that 500gb hard drive for the PS4 wasn’t enough, I got called an “Xbox drone.” My expectations are low with fanboys. ZyroXZ2 The death threats to Platinum Games was absolutely ridiculous, can you blame me for worrying about them trying to stop Bayonetta 2 from selling? See my point now? lol Daniel Gonzalez I see what you’re trying to say. Though, most of those death threats I bet were bluffs and probably hoping that Platinum would cave in, which is nice that they didn’t. I do agree with you that those types can be scary as sh*t, but to be fair, most of them are full of it. The ones who were serious, well….I hope they seek professional help. Daniel Stevenson Professional help and medication thoes people are mental I would cross the line of saying I going too kill you for not making the game a want on my preferred platform. It was still nuts I just think their internet trolls looking for attention does anyone remember the Final fantasy 13 freak out a few years back when it came to 360. Im so happy this game is coming out I preordered 3 copies to support this game.. Bayonetta is worth $ 60 bucks. TheRealTruthTeller i still laugh at the people that wanted bayonetta 2 on other consoles when, in fact, nintendo payed for the sequel to be made, and you hear them bitching and moaning that they dont get to see bayonetta”s ass on “HD 1080p XBAWKS JUAN/PS4”, also, who gives 2 fucks if the WII U is “underpowered”? its still more next gen than the juan and the ps4, not bashing them tho, just that they disapoint me a lot, WII U + PC combo all the way ZyroXZ2 You’re a little over-zealous, but from my talk show, it would be clear I agree with you, lol oontz 33 Comments in and you’re already this annoying. Seriously “XBAWKS JUAN” what grade are you in… 6? “not bashing them tho” That’s exactly what you’re doing… ha ha. NyallJodhan LOL, I thought that was hilarious. ‘xbawks juan’ oontz a tad immature… doesn’t help any points he is trying to make. linkzero65 well actually Bayonetta 2 is 60fps 1080p. so you will look at her(bayonetta) ass in 1080p. just saying… TheRealTruthTeller Thats the best part, we get the ass, they dont linkzero65 HELL YEAH SuperSonicBrawler It’s funny because the original Bayonetta wasn’t even released on a Nintendo system. Quite frankly I have no interest in buying this game unless Nintendo decides to release the original on the eShop or something. Everyday people don’t just go out and buy a sequel to a game they’ve never played before. That’s why I bought Rayman Origins back when they announced Rayman Legends. Expecting Nintendo fans to go out and buy this without first having played the original would be like expecting Sony fans who’ve never played a Mario game before to go out and buy Super Mario Sunshine 2 on the PS4. Basically what I’m trying to say is that the first Bayonetta NEEDS an eShop release before this game comes out. Otherwise the game won’t sell half as well as it should. nexxus6 Actually, there are many more Rayman games besides Origins and Legends, so you aren’t doing a good job supporting your stance. I do agree that releasing the original would be a great idea, but I think many people will purchase the game even if they haven’t played the original. SuperSonicBrawler You’re missing the point. Obviously there are older Rayman games than just Origins. The difference is that Rayman Legends isn’t a direct sequel to any of them. The same would be said for a Sunshine 2. My point was that, if Nintendo wants this game to sell half as well as it should, they they need to provide the first Bayonetta before releasing the sequel so that potential new fans of the series aren’t left in the dark in terms of returning plot elements. You’re probably right in saying I could have chosen a better game to support my case, as Rayman and Mario don’t focus NEARLY as much on story as a game like Bayonetta, but I think you understand where I’m coming from. If Nintendo decides not to release the original on the eShop before Bayonetta 2 comes out, my reason for not buying it will be the same as why I didn’t buy Ninja Gaiden 3, Mass Effect 3, or Darksiders 2 on the Wii U. When a developer slaps that number on the end of their game, it’s implied that you’re supposed to have played the ones before it first. And I’m willing to bet that that’s the same reason the previously mentioned ports sold piss-poorly on the Wii U as well. Bayonetta 2 will fair no better, unless Nintendo plays their cards right. The irony in the naming of this article is that you can’t miss someone you never met. nexxus6 I do agree that releasing the first one will do nothing but help spark interest in Bayonetta 2. However, I also feel that if they release the first one, majority of those that will purchase it are the people who already intend to play Bayonetta 2. Mass Effect 3 would have sold better if EA would have included all the DLC paks, which they didn’t. Also, it wouldn’t have hurt to include Mass Effect 1 and 2. Who wouldn’t buy a trilogy at a discounted price with the launch of their new video game system? LukeMM95 I haven’t played the first game either but judging by the trailer, it doesn’t look like the type of game where you need to play the previous game to understand what’s going on. It looks like it’ll be a standalone story. Many video game sequels are like that. You don’t need to play Ocarina of Time before you play Majora’s Mask, despite it taking place right after it. Also why do you think people will be put off by the fact that it’s a sequel? The whole video game market is built on sequels and long running franchises. Do you really think everyone who bought GTA V was a longtime fan who played the original 2D games on PC? I think as long as the game is good and Nintendo advertise it well, this could be one of the Wii U’s best sellers. oontz Thinking I’ll pass on this. I never played the original and from everything I’ve seen so far… I’m not really interested in this at all. Hopefully it does find it’s market… The wiiu needs more sales, but I really can’t see THIS moving units. uPadWatcher In denial much? Yuma Tsukumo This game will shift SOME units from the hardcore fans of Devil May Cry and the original Bayonetta. This is ONE of the reasons i bought the Wii U in the first place. I just hope Platinum will consider a Bayonetta port for the Wii U, so that all those who missed the chance to play it, will get to have a go. If cost is the problem they could even release it as an E shop only title. InterTreble This is a glorious exclusive and I wonder how people who troll Wii U all the days will play this game in their 8-core, 8-giga, 8-everything consoles. Simple, they will not. And they will be writing all the same things: Wii U is just for casual gamers, Wii U is just for families, blah, blah, blah. We will enjoy, they will be talking… nexxus6 By now you probably realize that no matter what Nintendo does, people will complain. MachoMadness Please re-release the first one on Wii U nexxus6 Actually, that is a great idea. It would allow everyone to become familiar with the character/story and build hype and anticipation for Bayonetta 2. FIreproof_actual Dayum!!!! val berger Hey, this game at least comes out 2014! after everyone expected it to be out by spring 2013 when it got initially announced ages ago, this sounds a bit ridiculous. They could have warned us from the beginning that this game wouldn’t be ready in a long time. Nintendo acts like they don’t wanna show off Zelda because their new policy with the WiiU games is to announce them when they are in a kinda final stage so they can combine hype with sales. For what I can tell, at least for Bayonetta 2 and X this strategy doesn’t seem to work out so far. uPadWatcher In other words, you are a Nintendo hater. If I were you, I’d shut the hell up. val berger And what exactly is it that makes you believe that? because I dare to criticise that company? I would be a hater if I wouldn’t care at all, wouldn’t I? It’s more like I’m a longterm apostle who’s not even frustrated any more about the things Nintendo does or does not. It has become the daily dose of their whimsicality to me. often makes me just shake my head and move on. sometimes their barely excisting plan surely works out stuff that’s surprising in a good way. But these days, it’s just hard, being a nintendoloyalist, ignoring everything they do wrong and not appealing like a completely blind child who just don’t get it, don’t you agree? ;D Freedom of speech, critique and so on, this is quite the stuff that should also be allowed in fan-boards. uPadWatcher You thumbed my comment down, I thumbed your whining comment down, lim berger. val berger Wow, you are really a grown up. Please let’s split here, I’m not interested in having further conversation as it doesn’t lead anywhere. Andre R this is like god of war but only for nintendo. good job nintendo. better not screw this up now.. GregoryTheRainMaker Yes, mommy we missed you! ❥ Simon Stevens Course I missed ya, ya crazy broad Mitchell We must buy this game like hotcakes, all of us Wii u owners, this is quality, this is a fantastic game nor PS or Xb.. is going to get it, so expect a lot of trolling the days before launch. Don’t follow gaming scores or reviews, the are sometimes manipulated to damage a certain product. But why does it happens Because they are jealous it is not coming to a specific console brand and even if it would be a multiplat. game they will say the Wii U version is crap. they state *NOTHING GOOD SHOULD BE RELEASED ON NINTENDO Wii U* We have all seen the gameplay, graphics and details of the game, just one word STUNNING. When the time comes, we all need to demonstrate our support and buy the game that will show this and other developers that WE ARE STILL HERE, this is a three console next gen, not two. We just have a few games like this in the near future, is up to us not to mess it up. Kevin Sepulveda Take my money now. Sylux Hyped. I want Bayonetta and play with her. In the game obviously, if anyone thought I ment something else, then shame on you 😛 GregoryTheRainMaker http://global3.memecdn.com/shut-up-and-take-my-money_o_391729.jpg Gamini Cyril what name of this song?
