I hope so. RT @Patpadi1: if Bayonetta 2 going to be a hit would you think about it to make a third part ? — 神谷英樹 Hideki Kamiya (@PG_kamiya) July 17, 2013 Hideki Kamiya is known for his outspoken attitude when it comes to fans on Twitter, but today he’s speaking positively about his role at Platinum Games working on Bayonetta 2. A fan took to Twitter to ask Kamiya if Bayonetta 2 is a hit, if he would consider making a third game. Kamiya says he “hopes so”, so it looks like if Bayonetta 2 does well on the Wii U, we could see a third installment in the series. I saw the game being played at E3 and it looked like tons of fun, so fans of the first game should be right at home and those asking for more action oriented games on Wii U, well Bayonetta 2 is your title. Are you looking forward to the game? Let us know in the comments. local_offer bayonetta 2 hideki kamiya Nintendo platinum games wii u stars Further Reading Nintendo loses patent appeal, ordered to pay Nintendo was brainstorming about Switch when Vextrum I’d love to see a new console exclusive series! Hope this game does as well as the first. The Clockwork Being GUYS THIS ISNT RELATED TO THIS BUT Pikmin 3 is a system seller in Japan, LOL at Ignoranceiswhatsup saying it would not sell systems. Alot of people were going to buy a Wii U just for that game. Taketo Matsuo, Tsutaya’s Director of the Game Rental Planning Group: ”Pikmin 3, that came out nine years after Pikmin 2, is having a really good start. Sales at Tsutaya are comparable to the release of Super Mario Bros U and have driven greater sales of Wii U units.” Luna Moonfang Could you give me the source of this? I’m interested in reading more, if you could :> The Clockwork Being Here you go my friend: http://www.nintendolife.com/news/2013/07/pikmin_3_causes_wii_u_sales_growth_in_japan Luna Moonfang Thanks, not-so-random person of the internet! <3 Zorpix This is the article I found last night, too 😛 http://www.gamnesia.com/news/pikmin-3-is-selling-like-garden-grown-hotcakes-in-japan Nintyfan Funny how sites likes IGN don’t post this stuff. The Clockwork Being IKR yet they post stuff about Fifa 14 on the Wii U page yet it isnt even on Wii U ConCity Soldier @The Clockwork I had Fifa 13 on Wii U but I sold it because I needed money at the time. Anyways, being a sports gamer I’m so mad at 3rd parties for not putting their sports games on the Wii U this year. I’m also pissed that Nintendo isn’t concerned about it. I played NCAA Football, Madden, NBA Live, and NBA 2K games on my Gamecube back in the day. Nintendo cannot stand by and do nothing about having no sports on their console. Make a MLB game or a NCAA Basketball game or something. Damn! Until then I have no choice but to buy every single one of my sports games on my PS3. ;( Ashley King Another DOTA 2 player? Nice. 🙂 Squid What? 😛 Zorpix The person she replied to has a DOTA 2 icon…. Luna Moonfang Gotta love people like you x.x The Clockwork Being Oh yeah speaking to myself here but although Pikmin 3 sold a number of systems in Japan it wont be THE system seller for the Wii U but it is probably something big at least. Zombie Boy I agree, not THE system seller (we’re probably looking to Mario Kart or even Wii Fit U for that), but A system seller, nonetheless. And that alone is a sign that Nintendo are finally getting on the right track. thedeciderU is there that much interest in wii fit u? i don’t know much about wii fit and it’s consumer base. also, will fans of wii buy a wiiu for wii fit u? Zombie Boy Wii Fit was the third best selling game in console history. thedeciderU well i hope it sells consoles then. i can’t say it appeals to me at all, but maybe it will help get more support and software. i’m wondering if the casual gamer will purchase a wii u. i was more asking your personal opinion though. i haven’t really seen anyone on this site get excited about that game. Zombie Boy I thought it was a laugh, but personally know a lot of people that bought the Wii for that one reason. Hopefully the sequel will attract just as much attention, because units sold = more games 🙂 Sidney Majurie Me and my wife are eagerly anticipating Wii Fit U. When u hit 30 you start thinking about your health and fitness. Our married friends are waiting for that “game” to get their Wii U. They all have Wiis but are ready to move on. We love the uploading pedometer aspsect. That is a big seller for thirty somethings and their parents 🙂 Edit: I’m a “hardcore” gamer but I do like a lot of “casual” games as well like the Wii series. Some people act like we don’t exist 😀 ICHI Me too! My Mrs doesn’t really like many games and my kids are a bit young to play anything complex but I like games like Dark Souls, Trials HD and Bayonetta. The Wii u was a perfect fit for us this gen just for Monster Hunter, bayonetta 2, X and SSB as well as games like wii party and Wii fit. Me and the Mrs could both agree it was a decent investment in entertainment for the whole house. Sidney Majurie As soon a Nintendo is able to articulate this better, Wii U will sell like hotcakes. Seems we are in the same boat 🙂 BLACKendTiamat cant wait for wii fit u. but at the moment im trying to get my wife into stepmania lol. such a good game with a dance pad. Sidney Majurie Haha. Good luck 🙂 Arthur Jarret NOT TRUE Wii fit only sold 22.67 million – and it’s outsold by the following games (which don’t include virtual console sale numbers) : Wii sports (wii): 81.64 million Super mario bros. (NES): 40.24 million Tetris (gameboy): 35 million Mario kart wii (wii) : 34,01 million Wii sports resort (Wii): 31,54 million New super mario bros (DS): 30,38 million Wii Play (Wii): 28.02 million Super mario bros. wii (Wii): 27.61 million Kinect adventures (X360): 24 million Pokemon red/green/blue (gameboy):23.64 million Nintendogs (DS: 23.64) Pokemon gold/silver (gameboy color): 23 million If you count phone games, Wii fit drops even lower down the ‘best game sold’ list, as mobile version of tetris sold over 100 million, mobile versions of pac-man over 30 million As an illustrative note: The best selling GTA on PS2 (San andreas) ‘only’ sold 17.33 million. So Wii Fit is still a better system seller than GTA is. Uncharted – a great game, by the way – sold ‘only’ 3.8 million Best selling PC game is the SIMS 2, with 20 million… so that’s what the ‘master race’ is playing on their expensive set-up, huh… :P. (This is based on my books with numbers up to March 2012… but I don’t think much has changed) Zombie Boy Most if not all of the games you listed were sold as a bundle with a console, which obviously boosted their sales. Wii Fit U was the third highest selling game sold individually. Maybe I should’ve made that clearer, admittedly. I did provide a link above (to accompany my statement) but it has been removed. Quote from Wikipedia: “Wii Fit is currently the third best selling console game in history (among games not packaged with a console) with 22.67 million copies sold as of March 2012.” But it’s fascinating that Sims 2 has the highest sales figure on PC. I’d of thought Sim City or something like Doom might’ve outsold it (but then piracy is rife on the PC, so that may have affected the figures), and Sims 3 might have outsold it since March 2012. Arthur Jarret Did you look at my full list? If I remove the bundled games I keep Mario kart wii (wii) : 34,01 million Wii sports resort (Wii): 31,54 million New super mario bros (DS): 30,38 million Super mario bros. wii (Wii): 27.61 million Kinect adventures (X360): 24 million Pokemon red/green/blue (gameboy):23.64 million Nintendogs (DS: 23.64) and Pokemon gold/silver (gameboy color): 23 million In other word, wii fit isn’t even the third best seller on the wii, but the fourth. New super mario bros. wii is. So Wikipedia is wrong. (not your fault, but it is one of the reasons I double-check any fact I get from it) That’s the thing with an open platform like that… Regarding wiki links, the number I have on paper almost seem to match the wikipedia page for it: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_best-selling_video_games If you look at the numbers – it’s really surprising how much better Nintendo games are sold over their competitors. It really makes me wonder why some people seem to think Nintendo will be doomed after one console has a slow start. Zombie Boy Well I’m sure we can both agree that Wii Fit IS a system seller 🙂 This is why, even though I also own a gaming PC, I ALWAYS buy Nintendo’s consoles over the competition. Their games are always such high quality, and usually sell well, even if the console they are on takes some time to get off the ground. Arthur Jarret Wait, what? You always buy nintendo’s consoles over the competition because Wii Fit is a system seller? Oh… because of their games’ quality… (hehe) New super mario bros. is even more of a system seller. I’m sure the lifetime sales of NSMBU will end up matching or surpassing the original NSMB for DS. Look at the Uncharted games (which I love, by the way… naughty dog is an excellent developer) – each of the three games topped a lot of top 10 sold list for quite a while the months after their release…. but the total # sold are stuck around 3.4 million (funnily enough, the amount is the same for the first and both sequels… which likely means that most people who buy one get all three). Many of the 10 million+ selling nintendo games don’t even show up on these top 10 list… instead of the salesspike followed by a slow decline that most other games see – the best selling nintendo games take a slow-but-steady approach, starting with moderate sales and keeping moderate sales throughout the lifecycle – not topping any monthly list, but topping the yearly & lifetime ones. Sony has done well in building their own classic franchises, though… which is why I will always be a three-device owner (although killer instinct might just make me a quad-system owner next gen…) Zombie Boy http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wii_Fit Michael Jurado I would I gotta stay in shape xD Michael Jurado comparing pikmin to hadokens while your average game is your standard hadoken I would say pikmin 3 is a special hadoken cost 1/4 ex bar while the system sellers are like metsu hadoken costs 1 ex bar these games are known as Super Smash Bros and Mario Kart so I 100% agree with you Pikmin 3 is in no way the system seller we are looking for but, at the same time it’s not your average game xD everyone I lol’d at that SF comparison. Michael Jurado ^__^ good that was my Intention FaTih nice comparison 😀 ICHI But Pikmin historically always sold better in the west? InterTreble Games out = console sells. As simple as drinking a glass of water. I can’t imagine the face of those people who pretend not to know this simple principle, and are being trolling Nintendo since it didn’t sell 10? 20? million consoles in its first year (I don’t know which number is “enough” for them…) without all its IPs out (PS4 and X1 will??? which console has ever done in the whole history??? … -.-‘) BLACKendTiamat trolls will only shut up if the wii u tops the total sales chart. its sad but in the end they will get over it. InterTreble R.I.P. 🙂 I’ve never figured out what’s fun in trolling all the day… I tried hard, but I didn’t. Arthur Jarret You’re wrong, trolls will never shut up. Do you know what trolling is? As long as there is fan devotion of corporations trolling will remain a happy and satisfying passtime for trolls. BLACKendTiamat as a troll myself, yes i know exactly what it is. but being a blatant idiot, and a troll are two different things lol. Arthur Jarret Yes, blatant idiots are usually the ones being trolled. 😀 Zorpix that guy actually got banned The Clockwork Being yeah but he is currently know as Rob Dass on an alternative account plus he still has followers here and he probably is still looking at the WiiUdaily news Zorpix You’d think he could at least do a better job of hiding his identity The Clockwork Being No not really. Zorpix That’s true… Ashley King That account has been banned also. The Clockwork Being Oh wow Ashley thanks 🙂 Magnus Eriksson Why? Jon That question you are asking has a very obvious answer to it. He was a troll, constant Wii U crap, going on about Wii U failure, how dumb we are because we are too “blind”. Then when something shows that’s amazing, he pretty much loses it seeing what will be the start of the Wii U’s Success. Bob Wilkerson He also used foul language, called people names, attacked people based on their race and sexuality, and was simply a liar I hope Christopher Johnson was banned too as he is worse than most other trolls. Magnus Eriksson Thats a good reason to throw him out. Edit: Racism and homophobia that is Arthur Jarret Yeah, it wouldn’t be fair to ban someone just for posting Wii U crap, talking about it failing etc. (If that was the case, Iwata would have to be banned from giving interviews, too – as he openly talks about the Wii U failing expectations set during the first year) But Racism, homophobia and constant obscenities are a good banning reason. (some cursing should be allowed, I think… like saying: Damn it! Because of my stupid work I wasn’t able to finish my warioware-competition drawing on time!) Zorpix Good work! Thank you 🙂 Clel ABOUT TIME! Josh I need to buy Pikmen 3!!!! Stupid family refusing to go to bestbuy. T_T (if i go everyone has to go -facepalm- Nintyfan Why does everyone have to go? O_o Josh Because my parents are idiots… e_rocket Thats good news, I would like to see al this new games help selling consoles Mario That’s great news! Luna Moonfang Bayonetta 2 has this kind of “Nintendo Magic”, pretty sure it’s going to be a great time playing it. Well, at least i’m buying it, but i hope it goes well. Squid I love the Nintendo magic! 😀 JeanPaul Badjo I love it in my mouth… RockieOllie It’s better than Microsoft Witchcraft. #FreeGrunty Magnus Eriksson We will probably NOT se a Bayonetta 3 on Wii U. Because it will not sell well. Of 3.45M maybe 10% cares about B2, thats only 345000 AT BEST. It will probably sell even worse. Its so sad what Iwata did with Nintendo… Jon you are talking like that 3.45M will stay only 3.45 M Rich Garriques honestly what i dont get about these morons is do they even know how bad ps3 and xbox 360 sold when they first launched? , wii u did better then they did at release. anyone even remember how big the drought was on ps3 games 2 years straight. YogiGRB i do remember, i can wait (older generation true hardcore gamer hehehe) D.M.T Dude…Wii U will not stay at 3.5 million. More people will own Wii U by the time Bayonetta 2 is released. Stop being so negative Magnus Eriksson Ok, Ill try to be more positive from now on 🙂 ICHI How many did the original sell? I’m hoping a large number of the early adopters pick it up as it was a big selling point of the console. Rich Garriques your a moron by the time bayonetta 2 comes out more wii us will be sold. uPadWatcher Shut up, Mag. Squid Don’t be so doubtful, I’m confused whether you are supporting or opposing the Wii U. Arthur Jarret Lol, nope. Bayonetta has platinum games’ magic – which was as good as nintendo magic on the previous gen, with bayonetta, vanquish, madworld, anarchy reigns, some titles I’m forgetting for some reason… uPadWatcher You forgot about The Wonderful 101, Art. Arthur Jarret I didn’t – I was listing previous gen. games (So wii, ps3, xbox360) What I did forget was infinite space for DS and Metal gear rising: Revengeance They are currently working on 3 current-gen games, W101, Bayonetta 2 and Vanquish Infinity (for PS4). That last game just made me go multiplat in this gen, too. 😀 The Clockwork Being Now about this article. Hopfully they release the first game along with the second game pre installed on the second game’s disc or on the EShop. An exclusive series like this one will really be great to be an addition to an already big number of Nintendo exclusive series. If Bayonnetta is a huge success, Nintendo should just buy Platinum Games. They really should because you know we should really get Viewtful Joe in the next Smash Bros. for the next Nintendo console along with Wonder Red and Wonder Blue. e_rocket Bayonetta and W101 should be big successful games on the U, both looks amazing, I think we are going to have lots of fun with this two games!!! Mark Thom Bayonetta 3 that will be good too see. i hope Bayonetta 2 sell well on wii u so we can see a Bayonetta 3 sweet!!!! Squid I’m not sure if I’ll have the money when this game comes out. If I do, I will definitely buy! Justis Bistawros That would be awesome if they make a bayonetta 3. Bayonetta is a great game in general it’s so great that its a wii u exclusive. My friend was upset when he found out that bayonetta 2 was going to be a wii u exclusive then he bought a wii u not just for bayonetta 2 but because he thought the wii u was a fantastic looking console and a fun console which it is it is. Jack5221 I just started playing the first one on my PS3 about 2 weeks ago. This game is absolutely amazing! The 2nd one looks like a ton of fun as well. Dave_Val I love Bayonetta, I really like and enjoy the first game and of course that I’ll buy the second part for my WiiU Bob Wilkerson I hope this game is good and successful. I have it on my wish list and if budget allows I will be picking it up. JeanPaul Badjo BUY THE GAME PEOPLE! uPadWatcher Buy the game… and PLAY THE GAME! Thomas Fitzgibbon Come on then guys, lets get our wallets/purses out and make Bayonetta 2 a success! Christopher Acuna Maybe just a little soon to be talking about a sequel for this game. Either way I am looking forward to Bayonetta 2. NintendoNoob as long as Bayonetta 3 stays a Nintendo exclusive I’m happy 😀 e_rocket I’ll surely be buying baynetta 2, it looks so fun, and I think it should sell pretty good… and even help Wii U sell more units… lest hope so!!! Re4wii2008 I Think a Baynetta 3 would be cool! I hope all of us NIntendo Fans Suport the 2nd game next year! Petri Cant wait for this game, it’s the only reason I own a Wii U now. If this does well, and they can make it even greater experience than the first one (I guess I’m easily satisfied, since I own the PS3 version of the game?), they should stick with Nintendo on the series. Especially after all the bitching by PS and XB fanboys (still going on…), frankly don’t think they deserve her anymore. Michael Jurado yeah don’t they have like 3 or 4 characters that play like Bayonetta besides her being on Wii U gives her a sort of interesting flavor, I think it’s the hair whatever, I like it xD Michael Jurado Bayonetta 2 is 1 of 3 games that i’ll be getting before I buy Wonderful 101 I personally want to thank Kamiya for giving us Wii U owners ever more awesome games to play everyone Just started replaying the first one the other day. Still holds up as having top tier fighting mechanics. On a random note, looks like they started dropping some trolls. Joe (ジョー) August is when the Wii U will begin its big comeback >:D Anthony K Aurelia No…the momentum is starting now in Japan with Pikmin 3. Joe (ジョー) Forgot to mention that I was referring to North America. MY BAD! xD blindtiger id like to see bayo 1 ported to wii u Super Buu What would be cool is if they made a Vanquish 2 for Wii U. That would move units if you ask me. starwars360 Bayonetta 2 going be epic. Game really need huge sales. Important because if not then we will never see Bayonetta in future, Make me so tears. Cos Bayonetta 1 is one of best games in current generation and Bayonetta 2 will do same taste. Hopeful Bayonetta 2 going be huge better. 😀 wober2 kind of nice for Platinum that it is coming after the wave of fall games. Might be in a unique sweet spot for the game type after the console built more of an audience… hopefully SoraShadowNever Will Wii U owner buy Bayonetta 2? Sylux Bayonetta 2… … … Hmm… Day one purchass 😀 not because of this tweet, but because of what I have seen in it with the Trailer, definitely must buy. Smartass2 I’m getting it. NkoSekirei mines been preordered since march of this year cant wait to get my hands on it and if its sells really well lets hope nintendo funds the 3rd one and that be awsome BLACKendTiamat NOknowledge- post nothing within the next 24 hours if youre a noobish troll. Wanderlei Based Kamiya. Yousif Alromaithi Nintendo fans try to make it successful and please buy this game. It is time to show Sony trolls this well sell. Nintendofan Sure is. This game will be a huge system seller as well. I can hardly wait to see all the Sony ponies cry when they realize how awsome this game will be and they are not able to play it, ha ha 😀 I myself will buy 3 copies: one to play, one backup and one for me 3-years-old nephew. Yousif Alromaithi Yeah let it sell 3 million alone but buying 3 copies that is tough bro. I never did that on my life but good luck. Johny cant wait for it! getting it day one. im so excited. i love these kind of games and im really glad wiiu gets that kind of game, since dmc is not on it :/ Nolan ArchLord I’d love to work on Bayonetta… if you get what I mean. Okay, that was bad. William Cole No Bayonetta 3 guys. It is confirmed. Third parties should have waited for at least 3D World to pass over so there will be a greater install base.
