Bayonetta 2 Announced, Confirmed as Wii U Exclusive
Written By
View author's profile

Following our speculations earlier today that SEGA's mysterious Project Omega could be Bayonetta 2, our hopes have been well and truly dashed, as the Bayonetta sequel has been announced.

It's in development by Platinum Games and will be published by Nintendo, making it a Wii U exclusive title. So, if you're not planning to invest in Ninty's next-generation console and you want to play Bayonetta 2, you're out of luck.

Obviously, we're bloody livid, as we absolutely adored the first Bayonetta. Please feel free to vent your spleen in the comments. Graaargh!!

@2 Don't count on it. When was the last time you saw a Nintendo-published game on a console not made by them? Never. So much for that one, folks.

Why the hell would they do this? I know I'm not the biggest fan of Bayonetta but that's a slap in the face to the fans. It be like saying halo would be ps3 only game next instead of the 360. I'm getting tired of 'Nintendo, Sega'. There to blame for why I can't play all the sonic riders games on the 360. They were once rivals, know there trying my patience!

Doesn't make sense having a sequel to a commercially-successful game exclusive to a console that not many people will buy?

Um... I'm just curious as to why Platinum would want this to be WiiU exclusive? I would assume they would make more money off of the game if it was exclusive to any other console. Also, as Nintendo's systems have a reputation of being for a younger crowd, Bayonetta is not really a kid friendly game. I just don't get it. I'm not going to buy a WiiU to Play Bayonetta 2, no matter how much I liked the 1st one.

It'll eventually get ported to the 360 and PS3. as @10 said No More Heroes was ported (and was a pretty decent game) so just hang tight and it'll come.
@7 I agree, a Wii-U purely for Smash Bros. and Zelda for me.

I like how everyone (including the writer) is stating their hate the the Wii U when it's not out yet. This is very very cunning on Nintendo's part. Not only is Bayonetta a mature game, it is also a great, third party game which was loved by all who played it. If this is quite literally Wii U exclusive, this could be one of the first great, truly wonderful games of the Wii U's life, as well as enjoying all the important power from the machine when it is not a port, and made solely for the Wii U.

Excellent news Sir. Well done Nintendo, I was going to wait to buy a Wii U, but now you have a purchase.

@3 @6

Although Bayonetta sold approx 1.9 million units, Platinum games have previously stated that it wasn't enough to garnish a sequel.

My guess would be that NN is financing it, so it can either be complete exclusive or timed. Who knows it's new gen Nintendo might have changed some policies

@16 - I never said I hate the Wii U. I just have no intention of buying one. I'm sure it'll be a great console with loads of great games. I also agree that it's a canny move on Nintendo's part securing the exclusive. It's just a shame for everyone else who was hoping Bayo 2 would come to 360 and PS3.

@10 No More Heroes was not published by Nintendo. It was published by Ubisoft in North America and Developed by SUDA 51's company Grasshopper Manufacture. That's why it was able to be ported.

OT: This very sad news but I do hope the other consoles get it in the future.

I never, NEVER had the intention to buy a WiiU.
But Nintendo just sold me one, right now.
You know, I already have 2 Bayonetta´s collector´s edition (for 360a and PS3), action figures, t-shirts, consoles skin, posters, just about every fucking thing I could find regarding this lovely witch of mine.
So a console is just another item, really...

Can´t wait for this. Absolutelly.

I actually screamed "what" when I read the title. Why? Why this? There might be a bit of an uproar over this over the next couple of weeks.

I was already annoyed about the Anarchy Reigns news, but this is a right kick in the bits. My jaw is on the floor right now, brilliant, just bloody brilliant.

Why is everyone mad at Nintendo? They are the ones that help saved this game. After Platinum Games were getting no help from Sony or Microsoft, they were thinking of cancelling it. I'm a little sad that it's a exclusive (just a little), but I rather them make a sequel instead of no sequel at all.

Eventually all these people complaining about Sega will realize Sega is not making this game. Sega doesn't own Platinum Games and obviously the contract they have with them does not give them exclusitivity. I would imagine they have right of first refusal for any game Platinum makes. They refused because Bayonetta sold like shit, and Nintendo jumped on it.

It's a good move. You have a reputation for being kiddie and have completely lost the adult market. What do you do? You make violent adult games with your name on them. Apparently it's working as people are already planning on buying a console that will most likely be bad in order to play a game that will probably also be bad (no way playing an action game on that controller will be comfortable or fun).

I dunno whats going on, but Platinum games are getting screwed over left, right and centre ... and clearly they are one of the best developers around.
Anarchy Reigns - Delayed for a year
Metal Gear Solid Revengeance - Cancelled Japan
Bayonetta 2 - Wii U only

Somethings not right ...

I laugh at all the people who say they were just sold by ONE exclusive game. I don't care how great the first one was or even if the second one topples the first. I will not buy a system for ONE tiny exclusive. I would make judgements based by the consoles features or online service things like that. Ps3 has a couple great exclusives but look at its online service which sucks if you didn't know. Not to mention its lack of party chats or there for any other comfortable way to communicate with friends. But hey you feel free to go ahead and spend 300 cash on it.

Unfortunately this is the gaming society today. People make purchases based on a name brand. Judge a book by its cover if you may..this is the same reason (I refuse
to say the name) that same game of the same kind and same engine sells billions every year. People are just willing to shed out more money because hey, i know that game and i'll buy the next game just because i know it and the dlc too. I'll worry about wether it sucks or not AFTER i waste my money. This is why we get rehashed games and overpriced, half assed dlc because all you bright, intelligent gamers out there know how to make the right choice on a purchase.. Just sayin.

For everyone going WHY THEY DO THIS?:

SEGA was never going to make this for PS3 and 360, in case you forgot- They're in hard times and ONLY making franchises that sell a lot. Bayonetta sold well, but not enough for them to risk publishing/making it.

Nintendo swooped in and *saved* the franchise by offering to publish it and took this as an opportunity to gain an exclusive that fans would want to jump on board for since it *does* have a following. It's business. Sucks that it's not on the console you wanted it on, but which would you rather have? No Bayonetta 2 existing at ALL? or Bayonetta 2 existing, but having to buy another console to play it? Not like you have to get it at launch, you know.

Having said that, I don't know why this is even posted here. Looks like it's just flame bait for people to rage about Nintendo for saving a game that wasn't going to get made otherwise. But okay.

While I don't like Bayonetta, I find it odd that the sequel will be on a Nintendo console. They still have sex and religious themes removed from the games on their consoles (yes, a double standard as Samus has now parades around in a skin-tight outfit instead of bulky armor).

@65: I know, right? We, as an achievement hunter/Xbox-centric community, didn't like the Wii so no one else will? Psh. The Wii/DS one-two punch made Nintendo that money-throne they sit on today. The 3DS, while slow at first, is already printing them money, and I'm sure the Wii U will follow.

Still probably not getting one, though. Well, at least not until Super Smash Bros. or Animal Crossing comes out for it. Though, they're both coming to my 3DS too. Hmm...

@16 Speak for yourself, I played it, didn't love it. It was OK but didn't keep me gripped or wanting to play a sequel.

That being said, it's a shame they're making this a Nintendo exclusive because, even though I'm not a fan, I know that there was big love for the game and I believe they're hurting their own product with the decision.

I'm seriously devastated by this. I love the game, but I think it's foolish to buy a console because of one game. I don't enjoy enough Nintendo titles to warrant buying the system.

I was super excited when I read, "bayonetta 2 announced." Then I was immediately disappointed when I read.the next part. I never expected that, but I guess there's nothing that can really be done about it.

No More Heros was NOT published by Nintendo, that is why it got ported. Its a Ubisoft published game, Nintendo had nothing to do with it.

For all those asking why they would do this?

It's coz SEGA didn't make much money on Bayo and without Ninty publishing this, the game would never have been made.
I know it sucks if you only by MS or Sony, but if youre a Bayo fan you just have to accept that without Nintendo there would be no Bayo2, coz SEGA have already said they will only focuse on their main half dozen franchises and downloadable titles.

Good for Nintendo and Bayonetta fans. Nintendo saved the franchise and are making a game that WOULDN'T EXIST without their help.

Apparently the author is too big of a Bayonetta fan to simply update the "project omega" thread saying that its clearly not Bayonetta 2. Instead, we have an article that brings nothing but rage-filled comments from whiny fanboys.

I mean, can I start expected X360A to keep me up to date on all Mario/Uncharted/(insert every other exclusive franchise) news as well now? No? Then this has no business on the front page >_>

Why do so many people think this'll be a timed exclusive? This is the same as Microsoft publishing Mass Effect 1, they published it for there own console, and then again for Windows PC's, but never for PS3. It'll remain exclusive for Wii U, which for me is great, I was already planning to get one because I love Nintendo, so this is just more icing on the cake.

@97 This is news for 360 owners and needs to be a news topic because the first Bayonetta released on the 360, it's sequel won't be. That's news in to 360 fans and fans of the series.

Hope this works out for Nintendo but I can see it backfiring on them.

But really what im hoping is if microsoft can get Kingdom Hearts 3 as an exclusive as that would really annoy sony fanboys :)

Dumb Move Sega. Putting really a Nice franchise, on a catch-up console, that is being released at the end of the current gen's lifecycle. Not ony will this be the death nail in Bayonetta's coffin, but possibly the end of Nintendo as a console producer.

It's really amazing how many people think this is bs me included the first game was very very good, it's was no cod halo borderlands or resident evil but for its genre it was fantastic so they really need to sort this out. To many people are complaining already and it's only going to get worse.

I can understand that people here are disappointed that Bayonetta 2 is a Wii U exclusive. However consider this. With Sega's financial situation it was not going to be made on the 360/PS3 unless Microsoft or Sony stepped in. Nintendo did step in allowing a sequel to one of the best games this generation to happen. For those angry, you're basically angry that this game is being made rather than it being on the Wii U. Would you guys who are angry say the same thing if this game was being made but for the PS4/XBOX 720? Be happy that we're getting a sequel to such a great game rather than cry like a bunch of spoiled children.

@108 GTFO Kingdom Hearts being just an MS title?! LOL Now I would love for it to be on ALL platforms, but it was a Sony thing before it was released on the 3DS.

Anyway, I'm not pissed about this because I have a love for all of the systems and will be purchasing the WiiU. However, its sad because Bayonetta ran the BEST on the Xbox and the following it has is a big one. Maybe a "Director's cut" or something will be released in the future for the 360/PS3 side.

There was going to be a Halo game for the DS but it was cancelled during development.

So... a game's sequel, is being made as an exclusive for a console who's predecessor didn't have the original? Makes total sense.
Most people who will buy a Wii U are Nintendo fans, who never played Bayonetta.
Most people who want Bayonetta 2 own a 360 or PS3.
Oh well, never cared for the first. But this is too stupid.

I'm looking forward to Bayonetta 2 and I was already going to get a Wii-U so this is just a bonus. After all the problems I had with my 360 breaking and having to repair/replace it, I'll never buy another Xbox. Plus the Xbox exclusives have been on a downward spiral for the past few years. Total lack of variety only Gears of War and Halo pretty much. For those being optimistic about Bayonetta 2 on other platforms, Nintendo is publishing the game which means there's 0% chance of it coming out elsewhere unfortunately.

Its not the thing of mybe its a definet. Wii is all lidie games what eer they touch is turned to shyt. For example look at the gb when it first came out everyone andthere mom and a color with pokemon red or blue . Now no ones intersed in it anymore ever since they went past the 3rd game. What r thy on like 10000 pokemon. The new mario game is the saeas the old with 3 new suits.they ruin everygame they touch. Yes they have good ones here and there but most r a bust. They have run out of ideas and there ryin anything to get mony. Thats why ever since all 3 systems first came out wii was a shyt and auto set to 3rd place . Xbox amd ps3 have been goin at it for first. Wii has no reason to be tryin mature games wen theyr famously known for kid game . And btw the first bayo sucked di k made no sense and for an idiot to go drop 300 on a control just to play this is retarded. I bet all the people that r gettin this r fans of doax and need new wackoff material

You people are hilarious.

Yeah, FUCK YOU, Nintendo. FUCK YOU for SAVING Bayonetta. FUCK YOU for picking up the sequel that no one else was willing to pick up.

If it weren't for Nintendo publishing this there would be NO Bayonetta 2 at all. If you can turn off your damn fanboy highbeams maybe you'd see that.

But, go ahead. Keep foaming at the mouth and getting mad at the thought of Bayonetta being on a console you don't own. Geez, this is one of the best nerd outrages I've ever seen. Right up there with Resident Evil games going GameCube exclusive and Final Fantasy XIII going to the 360.

So much hate for a console that's not even out yet by one of the all time best gaming companies...And then saying why would they make it only for that console? It's clear that Nintendo has done an excellent peice of shrewed business in influencing the development of the game(as it would appear the sequel may not of been given the go ahead in the first place).

Instead of hating on Nintendo, blame Microsoft and Sony for letting a game that received a high metascore and global praise slip out of their grasp.

Nintendo on the other hand, have made a great move by potentially saving a title for future development aswell as creating an exclusive for their new console.

I was planning on getting a Wii U anyway and this definitely helps with the incentive to get it. Keep hating trolls!

@all of you saying the fans should be happy it is being published. Why should we, if we are not interested in getting a WiiU system then we won't get to play it. Neither will the PS3 fan base who are not interested in the WiiU. Just because we are not interested doesn't mean we all hate on it, some do but others like myself don't find anything about it interesting enough to drop $249 or $349 on them. I already own two systems and play plenty of games between them, so a third is too much on the wallet.

This is a stupid move on Sega's part for allowing this to happen. The first game was sold on two platforms where games in this genre usually sell well( DMC, GOW) yet it didn't sell well enough to warrant a sequel. So what does Sega do, they take money from Nintendo so they can publish it and make it available for one less console. These are not signs of a game that will sell better.

Sega is just dumb, first the push Anarchy Reigns into March of next year even though the game is finished and still release it in Japan. A game that will probably sell as well as Bayonetta did maybe worse seeing when you look at the competition next year. Tomb Raider, Splinter Cell, GOW: Judgment, GOW: Ascension etc.

I will get Wii U but I want this game on Xbox 360. My opinion Platinum Games is bad choice and should look for other publisher who would publishing Bayonetta 2 for multiple consoles. Of course I were shocked over read this news and felt like want open door in Platinum Games office to talks with them. I go sleep now. Next day will be fresh day and forget this awful shock gaming news. :)

I Hope, this is not a real exclusivity, remember Joe Danger is published in PSN for Sony (ONLY ON PSN) and published in Xbox Live for Microsoft, the contrat will expire soon, Nintendo is not Microsoft or Sony in finance refers, remember Final Fantasy XIII (ONLY PS3), but if this happens, We'll have it for download on Xbox 720 or PS4 (Bayonetta 2 Arcade Super HD), Ha Ha.

Sorry double post, accidentally hit submit and just realized this.
If nintendo didn't exist, then sega may not be here today which means bayonetta would not exist. Just think about that for a second

Whilst I think this sucks balls, I really don't blame Nintendo here I blame SEGA. Why wouldn't they have greenlit Bayonetta 2? The game was very well reviewed and I think sold fairly well too. That's the most baffling part about this. I mean, I actually thank Nintendo for picking this up as no one would have got to play it otherwise, but its still disappointing.

i always wondered what would happen if something about nintendo or sony came into context on an xbox based website, i guess i know now.

OT: i played the first one and enjoyed it for the time that i had it but i dont think that i am going to get a wii u for this game alone, but will still probably get one later and try this game then

This announcement makes a lot of sense cause when I think of hot sexy witches with gratuitous shots of their body, I think of the Wii. Yep.

Why is Sega not publishing again? With Nintendo as publisher, there's no chance this comes to Xbox. I got the 1000 in the first one & have been waiting for a sequel so this news is disheartening.

I was watching the teaser trailer, but at the end, I saw Platinium Games, Sega and Nintendo Logos, What is the meaning of Sega, if they aren't the publisher.

Now, tell me, If Xbox 360 has Achievements and PS3, PSVita have Trophies, What about Nintendo? just a game to finish and that's all.

Quit whining about how bad the WiiU is when it hasn't even come out yet. It looks like it has real potential in terms of bringing back Nintendo, and I'm pretty damn psyched for an HD-enabled system from them. Am I an Xbox 360 fanboy? Hell yeah. But does that stop me from appreciating other systems? Of course not.

Some of these comments are hilarious, especially the raging fanboys that clearly haven't played another console before.
I'm happy Nintendo is getting a hardcore game, even if it isn't that great then oh well, it wouldn't even exist if Nintendo didn't jump in and save it.
And people that slag off the Wii are pathetic, if you actually tried playing games like Zelda, Super Smash Bros. and Trauma Centre then you'll feel really fucking stupid for slagging the Wii off, as these games have so much more depth compared to 80% of the crap that spews onto the 360.
I'm really excited to see what the Wii-U is capable of, but X360A, this sort of news is just saying "Calling all ignorant fanboys, how many of you can say I hate Nintendo?!".

Ah well X360A staff, Nintendo may have got the upper hand on Bayonetta 2 but I bet as soon as the Wii U Achievement system (Accomplishments) is published to the public it wouldn't be long before you come out with a or something just like when PS3 came with the trophies.

Couldn't believe this when I first read it. Will definitely be getting a Wii-U now (was already on the fence, this just tipped me over it, heh).
Personally I'm just glad Bayonetta is getting a sequel, after all the first one is awesome and thoroughly deserving of a follow-up.

Have to say I'm gutted, but not gutted enough to buy a Wii U by any means.

I very much expect it to go the same way as the Wii - massive sales for a couple of years, then as the tech becomes outdated with the launch of the 720/PS4 millions of them sit in cupboards gathering dust, only to be wheeled out from time to time when certain games are released.

@103- I'm sure it'll get ported over just like Resident Evil 4, they're not going to make any money on the shitbox. Nintendo has been in trouble lately, I hope the Wii U puts them under.

For everyone mad at Sega over this, this was in no way Sega's decision. They only published the first game, and Nintendo is publishing this one. It's like when EA picked up Mass Effect 2 after MS published the first one, or when Oddworld went to Xbox after being on the PS1.

Personally I am going to miss the Sega in-jokes in the game. I really loved that about the original.

@188 - It's not the same situation. EA didn't pick up ME2. They outright bought BioWare. As for Oddworld, that's been with more publishers than I think any other gaming franchise out there, with the possible exception of something massive like Star Wars.

Wii = 100 million units sold
X360 = 66 million units sold
PS3 = 64 million units sold

As of 9/17/12, most Wii U's are already sold to pre-orders.

Me, game collector across 18 great game consoles, including the all of the above. And lover of Bayonetta. I'm happy with this news and hope Nintendo puts Bayonetta in Smash. Oh yeah, no Nintendo, no SEGA, no Xbox, no Playstation, no video gaming as we know it, and of course, no BAYONETTA.

What a lost opportunity. I'm honestly not even mad, I'm just curious how they could be so stupid.
