Could SEGA Be About To Announce a New Bayonetta At TGS?

Richard Walker

An anonymous source has told SEGA site TSSZ that the publisher could be preparing to announce a new Bayonetta game at the Tokyo Game Show later this week, although it's unclear whether that game will adopt the form of a spin-off or a fully-fledged sequel.

The source also claimed that SEGA's animation studio, Marza Animation Planet could be working on an animated project based upon Bayonetta, but again, it's unknown whether this will be released as a short animated movie or a full feature-length film. TSSZ claims that their source is reliable.

Were SEGA to announce a Bayonetta follow-up at TGS 2011, we would most certainly welcome the news, so naturally we'll be keeping our ear to the ground for more on this. Here's hoping for the Umbra witch's return with a proper sequel, as the prospect of Bayonetta 2 is just too good to pass up.

  • I really hope for a new Bayonetta game!! Loved the first one! More Bayonetta can only be win!!
  • Fucking bayonetta ruled hopefully they announce that and announce that resident evil 6 is going back to its roots
  • @3 Its pretty pathetic that you would phone up and waste people's time complaining about sexual references when it cleary states on the box and manual that this game contained such things.
  • Cool story bro^^^ Yeah it was pants, just another f***ing button masher! Although A Resi6 going back to it's roots would be sick!!
  • Shit. You got to play Bayonetta AND you got a book, a badge and some stickers? You shouldn't be complaining.
  • @6 Should read and look at the box before you buy stuff, champ. The guy pretty much called you a moron for complaining about sexual references in a game that obviously had sexual references. No one said anything about having sex with 15 year olds.
  • Yes please!
  • @3 those people were probably just laughing about that phone call and took as some sort of joke. don´t waste peoples time, if the sexual reference is what you don´t like, you could stop after the first 20 minutes. just be glad that they haven´t completely ignored you. some people just have too much time on their hands...
  • It really saddens me that every article has to have some form of negativity or trolls. OT: I would love a Bayonetta 2 or an animated series for that matter :)
  • @3/6 These comments fail so hard that it hurts me. Also why come on here just to tell us that? Stay away from naughty things if you can't handle it; heaven forbid you ever discover porn.
  • @9 Yeah, but there's no warning label on Jane Eyre. On the back of the box for Bayonetta it says, "Not suitable for people under 15. Under 15s must be accompanied by parent or guardian." That might indicate something.
  • @3 you massive bellend. It's probably best if you avoid the sequel if you thought the 'sex' was too much in the first one
  • if bayonetta wouldn´t be a badass, somokin hot which, what would the game be like? then we just could wait for the nex DMC. OT: hell yes but hopefully again with bayonetta as main.
  • According to the plot she's atleast 500 years old. No 15 year olds here. And if you dont want a game filled with sexual inuendos, check the back of the box first to see what your buying. OT: I'd welcome a 2nd Bayonetta. I'm not the biggest Hack/Slash fan but the game mechanics of the 1st made me really enjoy it.
  • If you're offended by bouncing tits then I assume that you're offended by other mature games - and with that you should stick to playing kiddie games. Look and read box labels before you buy. It's not rocket science.
  • Is that guy a retard or what LOL Thanks for making my day.
  • Sounds like Axel is one of the most sensitive registers i've seen here.
  • If they announce Bayonetta 2 I will actually have to change my pants...
  • @21 i don´t get it. Are you 15? and shocked about that? or are you an adult who is complaining about that rating? Just wondering, because you never mentioned it.
  • @21 No, but it should stop Mommy and Daddy from buying the game for you. And you're calling me a social retard? You act like you live in Siberia.
  • I hate bayonetta
  • I hope we get another one i'm loving the first. I just hope they don't release one at the same time as Darksiders again.
  • I just realised (don't know about you guys), my box says '15' yet my disc says '18', but yeah more Bayonetta would be good
  • @22 Im not sure about sensitive...he has a huge dislike towards breasts and anything sexual to do with women. That points the finger at him being in the fudge packer category.
  • @30 You could be right about that, i think i was a bit quick to type my comment.
  • No.3 said "This dissapointed me as i feel if the game had a lead char that was maybe male or a child then they would not have gone overboard with the sexual inuendos"....sexual inyourendo!
  • Go back to playing Dance Central.
  • @Axelrod - you bud, are too stupid to be alive... you literally are a freaking dumbass! I don't make a habit of flaming people on here, but you have amazed me with how thick your comments have been... wow, just... wow!! Picked the 1st game up as a rental and loved every minute of it - still got that song stuck in my head! Can't wait for the 2nd!
  • #33 Ma'am, you better have your computer in the kitchen!
  • ...and people wonder why it's hard for gamers to get laid. Breathe it in people, when all else fails it's straight into homophobia, swearing, and acting like Mel Gibson after a few shots. OT: Bayonetta, what a game. Loved every minute of it and would buy a sequel day one, regardless of content.
  • @33 you're a feminist who thinks women should cover up at all times and hates seeing women showing some cleavage (oh how naughty;) ) and being sexually provocative?
  • @33 look, all you're doing is turning this topic into a flame war and insuling everyone who disagrres with your opinion. Those of you who are insulting them back, you're just adding fuel to the fire, so why don't we just get back to the topic of the article eh? OT: Now, i think the potential for a sequel is pretty good, and a film, short or full feature could definetely be cool. Wonder what miss bayonetta could be goin up against though.......gonna be tough to top the final boss of last game
  • I would just like to state that the age of consent is 16 in most countries throughout the world some even as low as 12 dependent on the persons level of maturity and how far they are into their 'teenage' cycle. As you stated Axelrod your brother is 16 so therefore the game is fitting for a 15. This is due to the fact that if the age of consent is mostly 16 it's deemed suitable for a person of that age to play or watch anything deemed suitable as long as they meet the age requirements. The sexual content within Bayonetta is obviously not real and cannot be compared to the real world. If a 16 year old is allowed to participate in intercourse surely they can play a game that contains slightly sexual content. It isn't going to harm anyone. My point is if they can have intercourse they can play a slightly sexual game.
  • @42 here in germany its a 18. so, the opinions differ very much even on the ratings. but lets agree with number 41
  • @3 Rated M for mature.
  • [Comment deleted]
  • @3 Shut the fuck up, You rang up Microsoft to complain about too much sexual reference in the game? Are u feeling ok? 99.% of us love sex and boobs and ass etc something wrong with u man
  • Axelrod is either the biggest moron anyone has ever seen or the greatest troll ever. On to the actual news though, Bayonetta was such an amazing game a sequel or spin-off would be awesome. Hopefully they will spend a little more time on it though and the game will have more actual cut-scenes rather than just still images.
  • @ 39 you need to get laid Weird a gamer complain about the content of a game and like every one says so it written on the box what content in the game so check before you buy next time smartass. oh ps you need spell propley cos it difficult to understand your posts and go troll sum where else ok.
  • Axelrod is among he worst trolls that I have ever seen.
  • Don't know, Never played the first one. I heard the game was too hard
  • I'm offended by 42.
  • The rating for Bayonetta is about the same as a rated R movie. I'm sure people under 18 have seen a rated R movie and survived. If you dont like what people put in their games, sell your Xbox and go take up knitting or something.
  • OK All This Is Supposed To Be Friendly GAMING Forum Not A Courtroom. Please Everyone Stop This Flaming And This Trolling, Voice Your Opinion, Give A Thumbs Up Or Down Rating, Leave A Comment About The Topic And Then Respect Others Opinions :)
  • @Axel - Just give it up, if you feel its inappropriate then don't play it. Some countries feel its acceptable for 15+, others are 18 - Your not going to change the opinions of the majority and you certainly have no right telling people they are wrong just because you 'think' your right! @50 - Was there meant to be that many spelling mistakes in your last paragraph? lol
  • @51 Well you do have alot of traits just from reading what you've said of a feminist. From what i can remember this game does not show any full nudity. There maybe some suggestive parts but all 'naughty' areas were covered up. If the main character of a game attacked stuff with his cock i probably wouldnt buy it, even though that is a funny concept
  • @60 - i dont even want to know what the special move would be... LOL
  • Axelrod, care to explain to me what you think about this; http://www.dailymail.co.uk/debate/article-2002887/Slut-Walks-prove-feminism-irrelevant-womens-lives.html
  • @51,I am a girl so why call me a ball bag
  • @61 - You're talking about people being sexist for leaving an insulting remark at the end of their post, but because #60 doesn't want to play a game where you attack people with your cock, he is suddenly a 'homophobe'? Thats against what you were complaining about!
  • @60, dude, you're really not helping, all you are doing is giving axel more ammo to continue to complain @Axel, look, perhaps you should stop now while you can still post, because honestly, an admin could honestly think you're just trolling and ban ya, and the insulting really isn't helpin anyone, least of all you or your point
  • @61 you're criticising me over one minor spelling error when you wrote post 3...a huge mass of spelling and grammatical failures. For a game to be an 18 it has to have alot more nudity, swearing, dismemberment of body parts etc. I'm hardly a homophobe....i thought you were a guy who hates tits and naked women. It's very logical of me to think you were a gay
  • @66 - Classic example of stupid comments with no real basis to them - you insult people but don't want to be insulted. You troll but you don't like people trolling against you. You want a debate over the topic and to be heard yet you refuse to answer #63's simple question...
  • @55 Its reap what you sow. Well done for spending your afternoon arguing with almost every single person in this thread. Im sure if you would of done that that to the same amount of people in the street you would of been smacked in your bitchy mouth.
  • This is actually the best thread I've read in a while :) OT: More games from Platinum Games is a winning situation!
  • #70 What is a 'Facist' ?
  • Oops, meant #72.
  • Flowed Lagic? So glad we have people like you correcting others on spelling... you're my hero! Even with my "flowed lagic" my post is still accurate, you say one thing then do another, 1 set of rules for you, another set for everyone else. Can't help but think you are just posting for the sake of it now. Axelrod 0 - World 1 thank you please come again
  • @ Axelrod, bayonetta was meh but as far as sexest games go you could of got a LOT worst from a japanese company, look at shadows of the damned, its miles worst than bayonetta in every way i mean its one long knob joke and has an entire chapter that has you running across a giant nude chick. You cant stop companys trying to make money and sex sells!
  • Wow this board didn't take long to disintegrate into a flame war. But OT: the first game was a really fun action game, so I hope they do make a 2nd one. Platinum Games is starting to build a decent portfolio of work and I'd love to see it continue.
  • #78 Okay, it just proves that you understand nothing of politics and everything in general.
  • @79, it's axelrod 0- world 10. Axel just keeps getting ripped loool
  • People really need to stop getting trolled. On topic, looking forward to a Bayonetta sequel.
  • @70 You haven't got a leg to stand on criticising other people's spelling when your spelling is so appalling. So i'm a fascist because I called you a fudge packer? Great thinking there bellend. Are you a lesbian? as you seam to be getting very agitated about 'homophobic' comments.
  • @80 is right chapter 4-1 in shadows for example
  • I want it sooooo bad !
  • @82 - While there are people like you in the world telling others how they should be, act and live - There will always be people like me telling you to sod off and live your own life!
  • @90 pipe down you menstrual bint
  • @Axelrod, their is nothing in it that warrents an 18, you dont kill humans, no full frontal or drug use and its not meant to be taken seriously. Its ALOT easier to find more sexist games, bayonetta was just an attempt to have a hack n slash with a sexy female lead and you use sex to do that!
  • @91 - #82 was your post you halfwit...
  • @96 - I only have 1 keyboard... I find 1 set is enough to type with! its spelled hypocrite, and no, no I am not.. lol
  • @98 - because you have lost so badly that you can't handle it and it is funny watching you trying to dig yourself. Better luck next time chuck :P
  • @98 pmt much?
  • @Axel, there is the fact to consider that, in a way, you can get rid of any trace of nudity with (some) of the alt costumes as when using them, her clothing doesn't vanish during her attacks that usually make her show a lil more skin and that innuedo in of itself is just, innuedo. Now, i am myself a oldish gamer (old enough for booze but still young). Now, with all the games i've played, i'd have to say that bayonetta, for a mature title, is fairly tame which might be why its not rated as high as SoTd, which i personally haven't played but have heard is quite crazy with cussing and more intense innuedo (hadn't heard about the naked woman level tbh). So why not back down, take some time to calm down, and revoice your opinion when you've had some time to think a bit?
  • @Axelrod, then why are you complaining, if its 18 everywhere else then youd think their might be something init that could offend people. Even a 15s rating would mean some sort of bad language or possible boobage, any of the trailers for the game would of shown the suggestable content so its not to much of a strech to say you must of seen at least one, why not return the game and get something different or just skip the cutsceans?!
  • and spearian, dude, you're bein quite a bit worse than axel with your comments, i'd suggest you stop before they have to warn ya or ban
  • @#46 So a magic potion giving you powers is now considered alcohol? Well I'll be damned... You sound like an overprotective parent.
  • @103 - if you look through my comments, I don't think I have ever been sexist, good to know you go out on another fail!
  • :trollface:
  • Shut the fuck up arguing over something so stupid you silly gooses.
  • @104 not really mate. I implied Axelrod was gay because i thought she was a guy who didnt like breast's and scantily clad dressed women. That was just an observation. Most of the other stuff was just her moaning about spelling when she can't spell herself. If you're going to insult people who don't agree with your view point then you are asking for a confrontation.
  • Sweet, hope there is gonna be a new bayonetta, loved the original, controls were slick, good animations, and made a change for a female lead in this type of game. And someone buy axel a dildo / egg / vibrator
  • Instead of ranting on here go do something about it if it is that important.
  • In a lot of bars you can purchase food and non alcoholic drinks as a minor... Are you really that pathetic and stupid that you think a child will want to drink illegally because they saw someone in a bar? If that was the case they would ban all minors from bars. COMMON SENSE.
  • I wonder what would happen if she had a son and found his porn folder at the age of fourteen.
  • Should go bake a cake. Might calm you down a bit.
  • Marza Animation Planet could be working on an animated project based upon Bayonetta Does that mean a Bayonetta anime? And I hope so, I loved the first game, so a second's welcome.
  • Guys, lets stop with the flaming please, this has gone on way too long....
  • I would love to see a NEW bayonetta.., I have quite a few gf's that I game with that are eager to see her too~!
  • @3 Whoever he rang must have been having a good laugh :) Bayonetta's not as bad as some other games though in that area so I hardly seen the need to phone up and complain.
  • I really dislike when people go this far off topic. I enjoy reading the comments other gamers have about some of my favorite games, but it seems fewer and fewer posts are actually on topic anymore... Well On Topic; Bayonetta was a great great, really looking forward to a second one if it happens. Hopefully she'll get a whole array of new weapons abilities, like automatics and maybe teleportation or something.
  • I came on here wondering what 119 people thought about the first bayonetta, and this? I thought 3 was having a laugh with that story . I found it pretty funny. Then for a couple of you to wind her up like is an absalute disgrace. Spearian/tehapoc you should be ashamed of yourselfs for some of the comments you have made here and a swift ban needs to be made against people like you. Clearly bullying somone is one thing but to use their age/sex/race against them is another. I hope it made you feel big and good today. Disgracefull.
  • @axelrod love how every bit of your argument is based around the age on the box and you ignore every other bit of text on it. here's the game's ESRB rating. Unless you are illiterate as well as overly sensitive, you need to go somewhere and whine to yourself. You made the purchase without all the facts. Blaming the company for your own stupidity, and then beating an already flawed point into the ground just increases this image of ignorance. Shove off and play mario or something. http://www.esrb.org/ratings/synopsis.jsp?Certificate=26682
  • Stop feeding the troll guys
  • oooooooh, i just wanted to agree that the first was a good game, if a little adult at times. (little scared of the inevitable flaming to follow) But i'm definitly with doomedtolive on this one... Shouldnt the "offended" be angry (and bot are they angry!)at the ratings people rather than the Dev's or MS?
  • Hands down the best and funniest comments I have read in a news article in a while. Here's hoping for Bayonetta 2.
  • More boobs. Yay!
  • I hope this is true! Loved the first game to death.
  • @90, how am i following a crowd, i might start one called get axelrod the fuck of this site,u talk so much crap, by any chance do you have 1 boob and thats why you are so angry
  • *get*
  • Love the first game, love perform many many witch time in the game and it is a great idea than most game (as long as I know still...) as it was not the main feature on the other game. Possible the second game won't called Bayonetta 2 but it still under another umber witch name... shit it is just so good to pass up
  • Oh, good lord... I see an article about Bayonetta has 100 comments and I think that people are excited... @axelrod, playing the "I'm a woman" card isn't a trump card. You are wrong on just about every level. First, there are warnings all over the box, so you really can't claim to be surprised by the content. Second, the "if they can't drink until 21, why is the game rated 15" argument is completely baseless. Look at all the alcohol use in the old Disney movies and Bugs Bunny cartoons. Cheers gets a G or maybe 14 rating on TV and it is set in a bar. Homer Simpson is an alcoholic and yet that gets the same rating. The same is true of sex in some jurisdictions. Finally, if you are going to accuse everyone on the internet who disagrees with you of being wrong, sexist or a "motherless prick," you have a full time job on your hands.
  • I came on here thinking WOW there must be massive demand for Bayonetta 2 because there are over 130 comments! Lol OT I've had the first game for months but haven't gotten around to playing it yet. Will def play it before any sequel comes out.
  • SQUEEEE. Bayonetta sequel AND anime/movie? JUST SQUEEEEEE.
  • @Axelrod and to all your post. Its rated M for Mature 17+. Maybe you become more mature at that age. So stop complaining that this game is not appropiate for a 15 year old.
  • @Axelrod -36 thumbs down so far, well done.
  • Anything related to Bayonetta is very, VERY welcome. :3 @Axelrod: The game is great, you just happen to suck at it. You can only blame yourself for that. ^_~
  • I still need to play the first Bayonetta, the review on this site seems very good, maybe I'll pick it up soon.
  • Ffs ppl, leave axel alone, read the whole list, I sorta helped sort their issue, stop the flaming and get back on topic. Swear, where is a mod when you need one?
  • I smell a troll in this thread xD
  • @137 - I rented it as I thought it wouldn't really be worth much of my time but I ended up loving the entire game! Some of it is very difficult (I found any ways lol), but overall its a great little game!! You will forever have "Fly me to the Moon" burned into your brain too!
  • @ Geordiefly not spelling mistake its me writing in slang or im a lazy fucker who can't be arsed to type propley. @ Axelrod i talk in slang so sumtimes i spell diffrently ok and you need 2 take spelling classes and get mental help cos u got sum issues. ps its reap what you sow get it right next time
  • @Axelrod How do you honestly expect to be taken seriously when you can't even spell a complete sentence correctly? Your argument is flawed, as a board already decided it was suitable for people 15+ in your country, that's it. There is nothing to argue or debate over. OT: I really enjoyed the first Bayonetta's combat system which IMO was probably the best combat system this generation for a fighting game, here's to hoping for a sequel!
  • In a day and age where I feel like I'm WATCHING video games more than I'm PLAYING them (L.A. Noire, Alan Wake, anything by Bethesda, etc.) this is great news. Bayonetta left my thumbs blistered and bloodied and I loved every minute of it.
  • @ #142 - To be fair, there are people posting against Axelrod in this forum who don't know the difference between your and you're, its and it's, and others homophones. Pointing out spelling and grammatical errors on a video game forum or thread is way too easy and more than a little petty. I know I've done it myself, but I'm done with it. I'm bigger and better than that, and I hope others can raise their own arguments to a more civil and intelligent level. Anyway, I know the sales figures and critical reception on the first Bayonetta were very good, and it's one of those games I bought on the cheap and will eventually start playing. I wish the five disc soundtrack would be released in American, too. I'm all for a sequel because I know that it's just a game that will probably be good and fun yet won't influence the way I view women due to my being a mature, rational adult who isn't scared of logic.
  • Haha oh god this AxelRod needs to find a life, and possibly a girlfriend so he won't be so afraid of 'bouncing titties'. They won't hurt you little guy, it's okay. That or he just radiates homosexuality that even Elton John would be ashamed of. On topic: Would LOVE another Bayonetta game. The first one was amazing, and I for one, rather enjoyed the bouncing titties and sexuality. Wasn't such a fan of the music though. Needed to be heavier for all the angel slaying.
  • I for one didn't even think Bayonetta was this controversial. Not trying to fuel any flames or anything but is it really that bad? I played about half of it and all this talk of graphic sex is news to me
  • Axelrod maybe a girl but she's also an enormous jerk! I love and respect women but you're the very worst form of internet trash, get a fucking life!
  • @Axelrod just like in another post i was reading were you were running your mouth about some nonsense bullshit, your opinions suck dick and add very little to the topic so shhhhh. OT: I loved the 1st game and would very well much welcome a 2nd, maybe even have more then one character to play as like DMC2 sort of thing, even tho I know a lot of people did not like the second one as much.
  • Wow all this arguing for a game that was showing female power in a sexy way lol.this game rocked in my opinion.its DMC with a hot female protagonist.
  • SMH @ every post Axelrod made. Also, I'd like to thank Axelrod for providing me with 10 minutes of entertainment.
  • To the people who think Bayonetta is a dumb character: stop believing whatever Anthony Burch says. To all the angry feminists who hate that the game is all ass all day: You can be strong and witty and independent AND sexy. Stop looking for reasons to argue with people. To the people who think Bayonetta offers nothing new to the DMC-stylish action slasher: stop believing whatever Yahtzee says and play it first. To the few people who were disappointed that Bayonetta was too sexy: Hahahahaha, are you seriously complaining about that? In short, HELL YES. Bring on the sequel.
  • Best game of last year, CAN NOT WAIT for a follow-up!
  • Don't know what axelrod is moaning about, you can't exactly see Bayonetta from the kitchen
  • Bayonetta was awesome. It almost deserved the 10/10 that Edge gave it. With the earlier Devil May Cry games getting the HD treatment, and Bayonetta (which was made by former Capcom/Clover people) hopefully getting a sequel, Ninja Theory's DMC game just became a lot more difficult for me to care about.
  • Bayonetta 2!! They got my money if its true. Love that game so much
  • @3 You Wong! That is priceless. If I called a complaint hotline and was told I had to talk to someone named You Wong (You're Wrong? I can't believe you're too dense to realize that), I would take a hint that my complaint will be a great joke for them to listen to.
  • YES! MORE BAYONETTA!! Also, Axelrod, are you related to a guy that uses the handle "Blue Protoss"? I'm only assuming he is not spawned from pure ignorance, but it may be possible he was a twin. You spell a lot worse than him, though.
  • A new Bayonetta game would be awesome. The first was by far the best second hand game i've bought to date. If there was a second, day 1 purchase for me!
  • God why can't Sega just bring back a couple of the classics from dc for XBLA??!! They need to stop with these crap games like Space Channel 5 ep 2 and Sega Bass Fooking Fishing (who the hell wants a fishing game on the xbox??) they need to release PSO ver 2 for xbla and include online multiplayer support, then they need to get JSR, Skies Of Arcadia and Shenmue out there so we can get some god damned sequels!! GGRRRRRR!!! DAMN YOU SEGA!!!! lol
  • More Infinite Climax Action?! I think I Just Climaxed.
  • Dear God.. Someone get that woman an f'in spatula. I can feel my intelligence steadily declining and ebbing away with each new comment she makes!
  • I needsss it, i wantssss it, MY PRECIOUSSSSSSS!
  • Yeah More Bayonetta i love it :p cant wait
