Oprainfall writes: "These complaints towards Nintendo and Platinum Games are largely misplaced, as Bayonetta 2 has been in the planning stages for a while now. However, the title met with a large obstacle when Sega refused to publish the game. With Sega not backing the project, Bayonetta 2 was dead in the water, and it would probably have never seen release. That is until Nintendo decided to work with Platinum Games and publish the title. If anything, Nintendo should be thanked for resuscitating Bayonetta 2. If it weren’t for them, there would not be a Bayonetta 2 at all."
