"Examples of these sorts of collaborations include Sin & Punishment 2, Pandora’s Tower and Xenoblade Chronicles, where development is largely handled by the external developer (Treasure, Ganbarion and Monolith Soft, respectively, in the above cases), but Nintendo’s own producers oversee development and pitch in when required."

Bring the heat Nintendo!

Yes the help of the Nintendo staff will definitely benefit the production of Nintendo Wii U entertainment system exclusive Bayonetta 2.

The Nintendo brand has a long rich history of AAA software development, highly ranked, and highly respected. With more than a few Game Of The Year qualifications under its belt. To collaborate that type of support with the amazing talent powering Platinum Games is a recipe for success.

I am looking forward to Bayonetta 2 and hopefully many many more exclusive Nintendo published Platinum Games offerings in the future.

Rated E For Everyone

Well... Now it's 100% not coming to the other platforms.

But this is great news because I am sure they will help with the quality of the game. I can't wait to see what it looks like.

sony has more game of the year under its belt and its out lesser than nintendo and with fresh new IP'S every generation..unlike nintendo wich does only kk marios games and company.

and keep dreaming about platinum games exclusives...they only did that one for wii u cause nobody cares that much about the game (1mil units only xbox-ps3 combine)

If you believe that Platinum Games has only made one Nintendo platform exclusive offering, you are in for a pleasant surprise.

one time,when you grow older;you'll look back at those comments that you made ON EVERY ARTICLE and think "why did I waste so much time on this shit".Nintendo will not give you anything for your "advertising".

Those agree's that you get might make you think you're so loved,and that you have found your purpose in life.But it's just spare time that's badly spent

Trust me,stop.

edit:and no,im not trying to be funny.this is True advice

Youre taking it waaaaaaaaay too seriously.
vallencer  +   955d ago

Platinum games is also making the wonderful 101. Which is exclusive as well. Also game of the years weren't really prevalent until about the ps2 era. So you really can't count that as a way to track good games. Oh and one more thing, game of the years don't mean shit.

I am glad that Nintendo is onboard but my only hope is that the games sexual tongue and cheek awesomenes is not affected by this.

Lets hope that its the new hardcore Nintendo and not the old censored Nintendo working on this.

It's a me, Bayonetta!

Excellent News, and this guarantees more quality to the Bayonetta franchise through this kind of collaboration.

Regardless of naysayers and fanboys, Nintendo is on the right track and gaining momentum progressively faster.
GrahamGolden  +   955d ago
the first one sold only 1mil xbox-ps3 combine this one will be no different

beside...with the king of the genre god of war ascension coming up and MG:rising who cares except few die hard fans.
Gr81  +   955d ago
As you are a Sony fan, I thought sales didn't matter? Seeing as how PS3 has been bringing up the rear the entire gen and Vita doesn't look to be bucking that trend for the next gen.

Listen, I get it, you dislike Nintendo, I understand. But if that's the case, why bother coming into a new post and writing bs like this? Why not go into a PS Battle Royal post, or Vita post and dwell there? I'm sure your opinions would be better suited for those.

"beside...with the king of the genre god of war ascension coming up and MG:rising who cares except few die hard fans."

Obviously, you care. You care enough to comment twice on this article. It's okay though, I got your back. Just let me know the next time that you are coming. I'll bring the some sad violin music, some kleenex, and we can talk about how much Bayonetta 1 sold lol. See how awesome I am?

Yea, GoW and MG are great games. However, no matter how great they are, you won't see me in a Sony channel whining and throwing a tantrum. You guys claim to be so hardcore, but every true, long-term, hardcore gamer has had moments like this (Final Fantasy, Chrono Trigger, Rare).

Take it like man.

I thought that might be the case.This is definitely good to hear.

I haven't been commenting much.

Yeah, that would be awesome but with the state of Square Enix it's probably not going to happen.

I hope this will not lead to a decrease the amount of boobs in this game. ;) That is all.
Gr81  +   955d ago
The Real
World has plenty more boobs. And "life like" is no substitute for the real thing. Go to a mall.
SpoonyRedMage  +   955d ago
Nintendo published Dead or Alive Dimensions in Europe and is publishing Ninja Gaiden 3 Razor's Edge(which heavily features Ayane). They're fine with boobs.

i really don't trust nintendo with a game like bayonetta
mike1up  +   955d ago
You don't trust Nintendo (who, by the way, is paying the bill) with a game that was dead as of 6 months ago?

But let me guess, you completely trust the folks that killed it?
PopRocks359  +   954d ago
Excellent retort. I'm surprised so much rage and concern falls toward Nintendo and Platinum when Sega were the ones who dropped it in the first place.
jambola  +   954d ago
no i just don't trust them with any adult games
GenoZStriker  +   955d ago
I just hope they do not deviate too much from what the first game was. While Sins of Punishment 2 and Xenoblade were good games, they aren't exactly the same type of game as Bayonetta, mostly looking at the combat department. As long as the combat is similar and the game has a better story, the game will do well.

Have you played Pandoras Tower? It's kinda mild on the visuals. But pretty much F'd up how the girl suffers for the curse she has to carry.

I really don't think Nintendo will cut on the developers creativity.

now thats a really good one, maybe even jack from madworld and Travis touchdown???
TheDivine  +   954d ago
This is one thing Nintendo excells at, devloping games and overlooking projects. People wonder why Rare seemed to have "lost their magic", its because Nintendo was overseeing their games and putting that magic in there. They really helped in games like The Last Story, Xenoblade, and stuff like Metroid Prime where Retro developed the game and they made sure certain aspects are up to their standards. I think it will benefit this game personally. Sometimes though i wish they would allow more dev freedom. I loved TLS to death but was sad to hear of the darker version Nintendo axed. The one about the gorl who cries blood set in a more modern world with guns and whatnot. Still it was amazing and i trust Nintendo over practically every other dev/publisher/console maker out there.
