OMG! This had better be coming to the PS3 also! The first one was such a wonderful game :)

@Wraith: WHAT!? NO!!! Now i'm almost positive I have to get a Wii U...

-Mika-2203d ago (Edited 2203d ago )

It should be. They would be stupid to make it a WiiU exclusive. Us PS3/360 owners is the reason this game is even getting a sequel. So out of respect, It should be a multi-platform title.

EDIT- I now see it a wii-u exclusive. Im never buying a game made by Platinum Games ever again. Plus this is a real low for nintendo. Are they that desperate for titles. First Ninja gaiden and now this.

I don't usualy agree with you but you do have a point

This is BS...why would they make it for the Wii U when most people, THE FANS, played it on the 360/PS3.

Think I'll just wait for a PS3/360 port in the's the gameplay aswell, I can't imagine myself playing it with the Nintendo Gamer Pad

Hatsune-Miku2203d ago

There will definitely be a xbox and ps3 version, maybe even a vita version. The only question is when

WiiUalpha2203d ago

Hatsune-Miku, As several have pointed out to you already it is being published by Nintendo. It will not be showing up on any other console

Trenta272203d ago

They said it was a Wii U exclusive.

Baka-akaB2203d ago

Seriously dont you people even read or listen . In the same min they annonced the game they said it was PUBLISHED by Nintendo .

"This is BS...why would they make it for the Wii U when most people, THE FANS, played it on the 360/PS3."

Because money talks.

torchic2203d ago (Edited 2203d ago )

I bet a million bucks, just like Rayman Legends that this will be a TIMED exclusive folks.

don't fret

oh crap it's published by Nintendo? wow, still somehow think it will be a timed exlusive. shower me with disagrees but it makes 0 sense to have a game that was made famous on 360/PS3, show up as a full on exclusive on Wii U. an install base of +120 million vs. an install base of maybe 1 million?

PygmelionHunter2203d ago

Final Fantasy owes its fame to Nintendo owners from the NES-SNES era, that didn't stop Square from releasing the next big installments on Sony platforms.

Moncole2203d ago (Edited 2203d ago )


Your tears are tasty.

Hatsune-Miku2203d ago

Microsoft published ninja gaiden 2 and it was exclusive to xbox 360 but Ninja gaiden 2 is available for ps3. The first bayonetta is on ps3 and xbox so I don't see why if there is s sequel it wouldn't come to ps3 and xbox at some point with over 100 million potential buyers

Holy god. SOOOoooo much entitlement. What do you mean the reason they are getting a sequel is because of PS3 and 360 owners???? They are getting a sequel because consumers bought their game which was good. I hate it when people expect something more out of the developer when they buy the game. Most big-budget games are all about business decisions.

I hate it when people say "I bought your game say you owe me something." Platinum Games does not owe you or anyone else anything. People bought the game because it was good. That's it. The reason they Bayonetta was a success was because it was a good game, not the entitlement gamers going "hurr hurr I bought your game so you owe me something." When you buy a product, you buy that single product THATS IT.

"I'm never buying a game made by Platinum Games ever again. Plus this is a real low for Nintendo."

It's a business decision. If you do not like their decision, don't buy their products, simple as that.

StanSmith2203d ago


You don't seem to get it. It is PUBLISHED by NINTENDO!

When has Nintendo ever allowed a game they published go multiplatform? Hell, they even blocked the Goldeneye XBLA title. It will not end up on Vita/PS3/360 or whatever else you hope it will release on.

linkratos2203d ago (Edited 2203d ago )

I know you are trolling but this game probably wouldn't even exist if it weren't for Nintendo. Sega reportedly stopped funding the game so Nintendo is stepping in and publishing it for Platinum.

If you truly are a fan of Bayonetta you should swallow your pride and thank them. You are the most immature person I've had the displeasure of reading on the internet.

SilentNegotiator2203d ago

A sequel made popular on 2 other systems?
Oh well, what's a few million lost sales?

rezzah2203d ago

I agree with your view. Out of respect for those who made the 1st game what it is in terms of sales...The ps3 and 360 owners should be getting the sequel too.

Ported versions of WiiU? Anything would do in my view.

AWBrawler2203d ago

No more desparate than Sony was when taking final fantasy. LOL Mika is going to cry us a little river now. Business is business, and money talks. I don't see t as desparate. I see it as securing an established new IP that they know core games want to play.

RockmanII72203d ago

Bayonetta sold under 2 million copies on PS3/360 combined. If it wasn't gonna have another company help financially (This case Nintendo) it wasn't gonna be made.

lizard812882203d ago

Bayonetta 2 was canceled and Nintendo funded it. If it wasn't for Nintendo, Bayonetta 2 wouldn't see the light of day.

But hey, we all know how that goes. No games are allowed to system jump. Just like how the Final Fantasy games are Nintendo Exclusive right?...

fatstarr2203d ago

Published by Nintendo homie lol its Exclusive for. life

Nintendo is trying to win

Sono4212203d ago (Edited 2203d ago )

To all those with hurt buttholes, if it wasn't for Nintendo this game would have never even seen the light of day, so quit complaining atleast now you have the option to play it. From here on out whether you play it or not is up to you and your ability to look past the brand, quit being fanboys and just enjoy games.

So I posted my comment then scrolled up two comments to see @lizard81288 posted something very similar with same wording too haha cool :)

lizard812882203d ago

I lol'd alot.

Nothing like death threats because X game isn't for your console.

sikbeta2202d ago


Published by Nintendo, unless Sega pull a Ninja Gaiden Sigma kind of move it's not gonna happen...

Yup. They should call it something else besides Bayonetta 2 though, unless they're packaging in the first one onto the disc.

ronin4life2203d ago

Then they should have done the same with all of those Ps1 Final fantasy's, or mass effect on ps3.

guitarded772203d ago

@ ronin4life

Final Fantasy is a bad analogy as the games are separate story lines with the exception of the RN-N titles. As for Bayonetta, they can do a back story opening like ME2 did on PS3.

Knight_Crawler2202d ago

If you played Boyonetta 1 you would know that the game does a good job of telling the story with out moving CGI.

All they have to do is give Wii U owners a comic book style story and bam.

GribbleGrunger2203d ago (Edited 2203d ago )

This is a smart move by Nintendo. There are a number of people who own the 360 and the PS3 who would really want to play this. Now they'll have to buy a WiiU to do that. LOL. I'm a Sony fan and never intend to buy a Wiiu but props to Nintendo. Credit where credit is due

scruffy_bear2203d ago (Edited 2203d ago )

Why would any Bayonetta fan want to paid $299 just to play it, it's a slap in the face to all Bayonetta fan.

GribbleGrunger2203d ago

Come on, this is a great move. We can rationalise the pricing all day long but the point is, this is another incentive to buy the Wiiu. Little drips of positivity like this could just tip the balance for some people who are on the fence about a Wiiu purchase. Just acknowledge it's a good move... the world won't open up and swallow you

LOGICWINS2203d ago

It's an incentive, but I still wouldn't buy a Wii U. At least not at it's current price point.

killerhog2203d ago (Edited 2203d ago )

Wow man, I never knew bayonetta sold COD numbers, this could really hurt sony and Ms... oh wait... it didn't. Man you guys make it look like bayonetta is as popular as COD and half of the ps3/360 install base will run over to a wiiU. This is probably just to convert some from the Asian market who own a 360 or ps3. I really do not see this converting much especially outside of Asia.

You really think people are going to run in masses for games that aren't popular outside of Asia? One of which latest installment did horrible? This could help in Asia but I dont see it doing anything outside of it. I understand your poit of trying g to attract core gamers but neithe of those games are really that popular with the norm.

GribbleGrunger2203d ago

Why do people like you have to exaggerate to make your point? Don't you realise that it devalues your argument immediately? No one here mentioned it is or would be as big as COD, all I've said personally is it's a great move. Jees.

Baka-akaB2203d ago (Edited 2203d ago )

seriously this is a ridculous comment Killerhog .

With the wii (if not also the GC) , for good and bad reasons alike the wii had a bad rep among those calling themselves "core" or "hardcore" gamers .

Having those kind of announcement is a strong show for a Ninendo that wanna convicne this time it wont be mostly mii "crap" and only a few key "core" titles .

That's all , it's not a revolution nor the migration og the biggest game (wich mind you is even coming on wiiu) , but it finally demonstrate something instead of the usual "we will have 3rd parties" empty speech

KMCROC542203d ago

They could package it with the sweetest V P & i still would not buy a TENDO product.

Aceman182203d ago (Edited 2203d ago )

your right credit must be giving to nintendo for securing this, but this doesn't bother me in the least since i couldnt stand the game when i played it on 360.

the combat may have been great but everything else in that game sucked. also even if i did like the game i wouldn't spend 300-350 just to play part 2.

Baka-akaB2203d ago (Edited 2203d ago )


What with you and masses that no one is talking about ? Stop pretending to be that dense.

it's about having a portfolio of attracting game for all crowd . Nintendo didnt have that on wii or even GC early on . it was always taking them lots of time to come up with "core" pleasing titles .

Now they are starting to announce some right of the bat .

Who cares if it doesnt sale cod numbers , since it's your obsession . Having a more diverse portfolio attracts folks , even with them not interested by most of the game from it .

Most people didnt give a crap about Ico or Shadow of the colossus , even here . Yet to this day they can't shut up about it , just because well they had the choice from a diverse range of title .

It's Wii U exclusive. You Know What's funny, I never thought I'd say this but, I'm happy it's exclusive. I don't want the PS3 or Xbox 360 holding the game back. I want to see a exclusive FF on the Wii U.

kesvalk2203d ago (Edited 2203d ago )

imagine, just imagine (i don't really want to see this happening mind you) if square decides to give us the final finger, and say 13versus is exclusive for wii-u...

i think the internet would blown up.

i hope it's doesn't happen...

tehpees32203d ago

When he said "another title by platinum games" I thought it was going to be Metal Gear. Complete shock. Well done Nintendo! Can't wait for Monster Hunter as well.

killerhog2203d ago (Edited 2203d ago )

This is just Nintendo trying to get ps3/360 core owners to convert to a wiiU. Unfortunately for Nintendo, bayonetta and ninja gaiden aren't really that populate outside of Japan. If Nintendo is trying to get the Asian market then it makes sense, but it's not going to do much damage to the ps3/360 install base in Europe or the Americas (outside of Asia). Really I don't foresee millions of people running to a wiiU for bayonetta and ninja gaiden lol.

shutUpAndTakeMyMoney2203d ago (Edited 2203d ago )

It's published by Nintendo. But I am not spending $340 for one appealing game. I will skip it for now and play god of war.

Theyellowflash302203d ago

You have fun with that. Bayonetta 2 will be much better game than God of War. Real action fans know what game takes more skill and has a better combat system.

Unlimax2203d ago (Edited 2203d ago )

First Fatal Frame Series .. Now THIS !?

Nintendo .. Don't make hate you , So much .. Please i beg you !

beerkeg2202d ago

People keep going on about how Nintendo haven't got any 'hardcore' games, so they do something about it, and then they complain about Nintendo getting 'hardcore' games.

It's funny really.

hkgamer2203d ago

Maybe Sega will give us a brilliant port of the game on the PS3.
I skipped the first because I heard it was a terrible terrible port which most PS3 gamers couldn't even play properly.

Well. I guess most gamers are hoping that this can be played on the other controller and not only on the gamepad, I just can't imagine it handling the fast paced action.

CalvinKlein2203d ago

man Im not against the wiiU by any means but shouldnt this game also come out on ps3/360? I guess we can say goodbuy to bayonetta 3 as it probably wont sell worth a crap since any fans they have are on 360 and ps3 and I doubt that many of them will have the wiiu by then to support this game. If I get a wiiU I will get this game as I really enjoyed Bayonetta on 360 a few years ago.

Honky Kong2202d ago

Maybe, just maybe The Wii U will be a "cool" system... i hope so for you and all the other people on here who really dont get it.

What's also crazy is that it's an exclusive being published by Nintendo.

Hatsune-Miku2203d ago (Edited 2203d ago )

I hope there will be a vita version which I'd buy first day. I'm hoping the game takes advantage of the Wii u powerful hardware and not be just like the ps3 and xbox 360 version. If its Wii u exclusive then that is ok but it shouldn't be comparable to games on hd consoles of this gen

Ninja gaiden 2 was published by Microsoft and was exclusive but there is a ps3 version now.
