No Bayonetta 2 This Generation? No Problem.

Rumor has it the several high profile sequels from Platinum studios were cancelled or shelved for right now cause of Sega’s current financial situation. One of those rumored cancelled games was Bayonetta 2. While many gamers cried foul over this news we here at playeressence.com could not be happier. (Bayonetta, Bayonetta 2, Next-Gen, PlatinumGames, PS3, Sega, Xbox 360)

The article isnt really saying the game will be cancelled or not its more on how he doesn't mind Kamiya waiting longer to get new innovative gameplay techniques in the next game

How can you cancel that which has not been announced?

God I love Kamiya.

If they ever cancelled Bayonetta 2 then I'd be upset and im not even a fan of the game for the most part. It'll be the second time a female protagonist game character gets cancelled (2nd time as in a character I know of that seems cool). wtf is up with games that do that?

Im looking at you Heavenly Sword 2 (because apparently its cancelled or not in production). Oh and Mirrors edge 2, though I think Ea said they are making it now.

We're getting new female game characters, but sometimes I dont see sequels for them which is disappointing.

i hope sega ll prevail.

If money issues are that big, they should merge with some japanese company, sony or whatever.

Their ips must stay alive.

How can you be happy about it? Because you thought the first one was good?

What?
Hicken  +   960d ago
Yeah, I don't quite get it. I think he says it because he wants them to wait until new hardware can allow for even more innovation, but that's like saying they can't improve on the game using current hardware.
Theyellowflash30  +   960d ago
Were happy they are not going to release Bayonetta 2 within the normal 2-3 year sequel cycle and are going to wait to give Kamiya and his team time to think and develope new innovative gameplay ideas... if you read the article it would clearly make sense.

I don't mind, as long as they don't shaft the playstation version again.

Platinum also made Vanquished (and Binary Domain???).
never got into vanquish.
scofios  +   960d ago
Binary Domain was not made by Platinium..
De people who make the Yakuza games made Binary.
And published by Sega.
Ultr  +   959d ago
You should definately play Vanquish, one of the best action games ever created, onpar with Zone Of The Enders! :)
bubblebeam  +   958d ago
Maybe I was thinking of Anarchy Reigns, not Binary.

Vanquish (damn, I picked people up for saying "vanuishED" and then I say it) was pretty cool, it is one of those games that stares at you, like the eye of Sauron, wanting to be played.

I'll give it another chance, the only downside was it felt very arcade-like. Bosses were epic though (I beat 1 lol)

A long as we get a sequel, I'm happy. This generation or not

Hmm. Bayonetta was interesting at the very least. The fighting, locations and enemies were a nice change of pace, but the characters were shallow, nonsensical and are never really fully explored. The music...ugh if I hear that map screen theme one more time...

I would mot mind a sequel, but it had better make big improvements over the first entry. If that means more time before release, so be it.

I want PG to make a Bayonetta sequel with a new character that also hunts the supernatural, who wears a long jacket, carries a big ass sword, 2 guns with unlimited ammo, has several fighting styles and a kick ass sense of humor!
Whitefox789  +   960d ago
Hmmm where have I seen this guy before. Ohh right after he defeated a demon king named Argosax, he rode off on his motorcycle into a portal which transported him into a post apocalyptic Tokyo, after he was done investigating a mysterious ordeal in that universe he was transferred over to a universe that bears crossings between the Namco, Capcom, and Sega universes (Project X Zone).
