The Case for Why Bayonetta Could Be in the New Smash Bros.

Kotaku: "The upcoming Bayonetta 2 is a Wii U exclusive. Nintendo, not Sega, is now publishing the game. You know what that means?

Yep, it probably means that the character of Bayonetta will pop up in the upcoming 3DS and Wii U Smash Bros. games."

The story is too old to be commented.

Ha that makes more sense now. Of course we will see her since Nintendo bought her

SonyNGP2280d ago

They're publishing Bayonetta 2. They didn't by the rights to the IP.

NukaCola2280d ago

I think it;s pretty unprofessional to act like that. I enjoyed Bayonetta, but to call PS All Stars a ripoff knowing damn well SMASH is not the first fighter to feature cross game characters, is childish. Nintendo is financing their game, but that doesn't mean they need to act like Nintendo is all powerful and other companies are failure. Plus they are ragging on another JP dev which is disrespectful. Lastly, God of War, Heavenly Sword and Devil May Cry came first.

Jeenoman2279d ago


C'mon... It's not just that Nintendo created a game with cross over characters - It's about the layout and style thats been directly copied. That said, I'll still be buying the game.

Also, Devil May Cry did come first... But that was also the same designer as Bayonetta ha.

Nimblest-Assassin2280d ago

Yeah... always found it funny he said that because of this

Lets just boycott every game if its not original

PygmelionHunter2280d ago

She would be a welcome addition to the ever growing roster.

Parappa2280d ago

Nope. She would be a wasted spot on the roster and I would avoid buying it. It doesn't matter what characters the next Super Smash Bros has but if it has Bayonetta then I'll instantly avoid it. The game was garbage and the characters on top of the story were even worse.

I've never seen a positive comment from you. Ever.

Thought bayonetta was corny anyway. Good riddens.

Lucretia2280d ago

she is insanely corny, but the game is fun.

i was figuring she would be in smash with this announcement

dark-hollow2280d ago

It's really sad that most people can't get past the game cheesy over the top nature to see that its actually one of the greatest hack and slash games this gen.

the combat system just hands down is better than DMC3 or even ninja gaiden1&2 combat system IMO.

Lucretia2280d ago

the combat system is Awesome it is.

but the story and the characters besides Mini bayonetta are all so dang annoying and unlikable IMO.

Bayonetta tries to hard to be sexy when shes not even close to being sexy, it's annoying honestly, from her voice to her movements and well....everything.

I can see where people would not wannaa play it because of that.

but i like gameplay so i played and beat the heck out of it

dark-hollow2280d ago

Fair enough but look at ninja gaiden and devil may cry, I won't say they had top class story writing, and dmc 3 had it own share of corny and cheesy moments.

when it comes to hack and slash games, I don't think the story is what defines the game, but solely by the gameplay.

and for the character herself, I thought it was alright, too cheesy and trying too hard that am actually laughing at how bad some cut scenes are (the case of too bad its good) but all that doesn't matter beside the deep, well thought gameplay mechanics.

-Gespenst-2280d ago

Hmmm, she seems a bit eh, buxom, to be in a game like Smash Bros... but alright.

Bayonetta vs Travis Touchdown in Smash Brothers......make it happen!!!!

[or maybe in Anarchy Reigns for the Wii U?]
