In this past Nintendo Direct, Sotoru Iwata took viewers on a behind the scene look at the development process of Bayonetta 2, with a 90-second video that involved the team at Platinum Games  discussing the process of making the next entry in the Bayonetta series. The video showcased several of the new design elements that will be featured in the game, while the team discussed what players can expect when the finally get their hands on it.

“The scale of the game is completely different this time, so it feels like you are fighting the last boss from the very beginning,” one of the developers said. “I think people are going to have lots of fun with it.”

Check out the video below to see Bayonetta 2’s development team in action.

Personally, some of the new enemy designs shown off at the beginning of the video, as well as the combat animations that the developers seemed to be working on have gotten me even more hyped for this game.  That comment about it feeling like you’re fighting the last boss from the beginning of the game, makes me think that the enemies are going to be even more epic than in the original.

Also, while Bayonetta was one of my favorite new IP’s of this generation, I feel like the game could have used some more diversity in level design. Now, after seeing the work that is going into the new environments for Bayonetta 2, I believe one of the only issues I had with the first game will be solved in the sequel.

This was only one of several Wii U announcements made during this presentation yesterday. Are you guys getting more excited for Bayonetta 2? Which of the other announcements are you thrilled about?  How do you feel about the Nintendo’s position going into E3 this year?

    let d hate letters n videos begin to rain

  • The video didn’t really show to me what Bayonetta is, here I read it’s an epic game experience, even the local gamestore owner says this is the most anticipated WiiU title for 2013/2014.

    I never played the original so I have no clue what to expect from it except the girl who seems to be the main  character, I suppose I have to look the first game up on YouTube maybe then I get the hype about this title, looks great from what I’ve seen on this video yesterday. Just need to figure what kind of game it is.

    • Think Devil May Cry where you play as a Hot Glasses wearing lady in leather… and her own hair…

      • Ok, thanks Chris, now I know what to expect from this game and I can feel the Hype as well, didn’t play all DmC’s but enough to know what it’s like. If for Bayonetta I can think DmC with a lady instead, then yes I can see why it’s such a hyped game. In that case I’ll have to add it to my collection as well, better start saving fast for that WiiU before I have to buy the system with 7+ games o_0 (Lego city, bayonetta, aliens, project monolith, DSII, AC3 etc.)

  • My last biggest collection of games was with the PS2, which I had over 156 games for… I think my Wii U is going to get more than that if Nintendo keeps this up ._.

    I hate how there are still fanboys who whine on every Youtube video about this game. They should learn that if it wasn’t for Nintendo, this game would’ve been scrapped.
