Bayonetta 2 trailer confirmed as real-time graphics on WiiU

The developer video from Platinum Games shown during the most recent WiiU Nintendo Direct presentation. Showed off a very huge monster at the end, which most believed to be CGI. But was confirmed through Twitter by Yusuke Hashimoto to be in game graphics. (Bayonetta 2, Nintendo, Wii U)

That's good news, because the monster looked quite impressive, and if this rendered in real time with the game engine, then I don't think we'll have to worry about what kind of visuals the Wii U can pump out..
Ck1x  +   1097d ago
I agree! If this is any indication of What Platinum Games may show off at e3 of Bayonetta 2. People are going to be really shocked at how WiiU games stack up against the PS4 & 720. Especially since people are now using photos of the GPU die to now say that it's weaker than both the PS3&360... Most of the things they are guessing at are custom designed and they have no clue what this chip is capable of, or its functions. But they still guess anyways. Next they will come out and say WiiU is just 4 GameCubes duct-taped together. Lol

We havent see how the graphics that ps4 and xbox720 are going to be which i believe are going to be way better than this
MmaFan-Qc  +   1097d ago
well, we cant say that the Bayonetta 2 video was impressive, in fact it was pretty minimalist and barely showed us something.

nothing to be hyped really, if you played the first game... you know exactly what you will get.

now lets hope that the game wont bomb like MadWorld did simply because its not where the target audience is.

Here the gpu is officially the.


simple as that there was no need for the tear down it has 32 MB Edram for both gpu and cpu,2GB RAM,it has a GPGPU,Memory intensive design,Iwata said all this ages ago,so couple this with my link and that Mayamoto's words that he believes the cpu isn't weak and seing Xenoblade and Beyonetta2 ect it's not a HD4670 ????

Don't get mad when PS3&X360 get Bayonetta 2 HD Edition few years later and PS4&X720 Bayonetta 2 VHD Edition, just like many of those 3rd party Nintendo exclusives.

WTH?? That is just a one second clip of... something. We dont get to see any textures, lighting, FPS, details or animation. Why are you getting excited for this? Come on Nintendo fans, you need to try harder to prove that your console is also powerful.

Photos of the GPU die suggest that is around 1.5 times more powerful than the GPU of Xbox 360. People are saying this and not that it is weaker than PS3 & 360.
And as for the CPU: It's a tuned Wii CPU which itsef was a tuned GameCube CPU.
The comment "just 4 GameCubes duct-taped together" isn't that ridiculous ;)

Wii U IS more powerful than PS3&360. Anybody who is denying that has to be a fanboy imho.
BUT thinking Wii U will be as powerful as PS4/720 is a different topic. IF the rumored specs are true, Wii U will be way behind in terms of raw processing power.
Let's wait for E3 before jumping conclusions...

There's really nothing impressive about what little was shown being real-time.

Were there even ANY background/scenes being fully rendered? Plus, there really wasn't GAMEPLAY and gameplay uses a lot of processing power for programming.

They're really grasping at straws with a strawman-esqe argument.
The real issue: Is it impressive at all? No, hardly anything was fully rendered and there wasn't gameplay.
Strawman: Wowiez! It's real time!

I wonder that very thing and I bet a lot of them started with Nintendo.

Personally, they dare to be different and their games are better built then the other 2 which is why I always will have their system. I will compliment it with one of the others as there is never much differences bar exclusives.

This argument about how powerful won't die till we know the specs for ps4 and next Xbox

I am happy Nintendo has finally joined rest of the world in HD era but as a fan of ps and Xbox I do believe both systems will be more powerful than wii-u.

3rd party support where is it? Why are so many 2013 games not showing up on wii-u?

We see a trailer and all of the sudden we know what wii-u is capable of? God of war has huge boss fights so hats doesn't mean much.

This may seem like a hate comment but it's not. Nintendo is great at making quality 1st party games but to be successful this time around hey are gonna need 3rd party support. But this wii-u isn't what wii was so everyone isn't going nuts and buying one.

That casual crowd has moved on to utter systems to mobile gaming but core market is here and for Nintendo to have any chance of competing with ms and Sony they gonna need to get their acts together and get 3rd party publishers on board. Easier said than done

HERE IS A FUN FACT, THE LAST SYSTEM FROM NINTENDO TO GET GREAT 3RD PARTY SUPPORT WAS SNES. Now let that sink in because SNES was a long long time ago.

Whether ts right or wrong but Nintendo's systems have a long history of being looked as kids or family friendly gaming systems. So M rated games automatically are set up to fail

I ran out of bubbles on the Wii U GPU discussion so I'm going to post this here. Digital Foundry and Eurogamer made it sound like they had the GPU specs nailed down 100% but they are infact making some assumptions and there are still some very big??? It's super lame when sites jump the gun like this just for hits on there site because they know the fanboys will eat it up.

Console power is far more than about graphics. It's also about gameplay elements running such as the number of enemies you can have on screen, draw distance which can aid in realizing amazingly vibrant worlds, set pieces that are as interactive as normal active gameplay, and a number of things that won't make an impression until we see them. So whilst Nintendo are focusing on a tablet control scheme to make their games unique, the next gen consoles will be pushing out amazing games doing things that Nintendo's console can't.

Listen I love Nintendo, but they're at a serious disadvantage as far as the Wii U is concerned. It's not ever going to push as hard as the Wii. It's going to be another supposed PS2-> PS3 generation transition. It's also not going to receive some of the best third party content that will be prioritized for PS4, 720 and PC.

So it's more than about graphics. It's about missing out on content.

& LOL @ restricting yourself to Japanese games. Tragic.

Xenoblade on Wii had amazing draw distance. X on Wii U looks to up the ante exponentially. So we get great draw distance, huge monsters, and overall great looking visuals. Plus we get the tablet remote and remote play as well as Nintendo exclusives which there are alot of. The very best looking PC games aren't leagues beyond whats on consoles now, and most everyone believes that the next PS and MS consoles wont look as good as the top of the line on PC now. THere wont be a huge visual difference between the three consoles when its all said and done of that I am certain. But time will tell

profgerbik  +   1097d ago
Most "fans" are blind followers of course not all of them but I guess that is where the word fan came from, just look at the Super Bowl.

There is nothing wrong with not liking the first game.

It was far from impressive and it got plenty of very mixed reviews and I can almost bet you will find more people who disliked the game versus to those who thought it was amazing.

In terms of graphical achievements Bayonetta was never anything to talk about, so I have no idea why people disagree with that but it's those same people who will be in another Nintendo thread talking about how they don't care about graphics but are always so quick to defend them.

I personally don't think the 2nd one is even really something to talk about graphically. These people must not have seen or played Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance, it is made by the exact same developers and shows far more graphical prowess over Bayonetta 2 on the Wii U but I am sure just because it's not on the Wii U this will get mad disagrees.

When it's proven over and over again the Wii U is practically on the same level if not slightly below the PS3's which MGR is on.

As they say you can't talk sense into the senseless.

Whatever helps you sleep at night! Wii U is indeed a next gen console. Now if you are looking at it from a graphical point of view then that's fine, but if your looking at it as a whole then of course it is! Do you really think that anyone in their right mind wouldn't buy a game like Bayonetta 2 or X because Uncharted 40 or GOW 17 comes out on PS9!? Maybe you wont but unlike you most gamers buy games for playability not strictly for graphics. Give it up man!
TheBlackSmoke  +   1097d ago
Actually the reason Bayonetta 2 is exclusive is because no one bought the first one. Its not a system seller.

And trying to undermine uncharted and god of war like they are not good games makes your opinion invalid. Did you know it is possible to have amazing graphics AND great gameplay...oh wait your a nintendo fan nvm..

Wii u is not next gen, just wait until ps4/nextbox come out and you come to the realisation developers arent making wii u games anymore, hell even now they are leaving it out with curent gen multiplats.
RedDeadLB  +   1097d ago
judging from the screens the monster doesn't look all that detailed, it's just heavy on specular maps as far as I can tell. But still, I'm interested. We'll see in the future just how it turns out.
Blacklash93  +   1097d ago
With the dark lighting from the environment it's impossible to tell how detailed it is. You would barely be able to see in it that scene if it weren't for the specular maps. If it isn't that detailed, it could be just becuase you won't see it it anything but dark lighting. Likewise, no way to tell.

But really, this is just a very brief moment of footage in a darkly lit level in a far from finished build. There's no way we can scutinize it to judge or get an impression of Bayonetta 2 or its graphical quality.

That's what I said, we'll just have to wait and see how graphically impressive it is.

Considering it's just a monster in a room with nothing in it practically, during gameplay it might not look as well as everyone would hope.

But again, we'll see. When is this supposed to release anyway?

There sure is a lot of flip-flopping going on in these threads! Reminds me of a fish on the deck of a fishing boat.

There will be improvements of course, but they will be minimalistic at best! Like someone said above due to what is being shown, anything can look good if it's in a room by itself, and me playing the original Bayonetta personality, it's not like it was a graphical beast to begin with! Of course I'd expect there to be some that would disagree with me.

The preview of the game X would be more apt to get my blood pumping as far as anything I've seen on the WII U thus far.
shutUpAndTakeMyMoney  +   1097d ago
Seeing that they showed wire frame I am pretty sure it was real time.

Looking at the disagrees on the early comments, it seems the trolls are angry that the Wii U can actually potentially run a new game that looks considerably better than its PS3/360 predecessor.

Also I'm loving the reverse damage control. Yes, let's downplay this good news as much as we can. Like that isn't typical at all. /s

Look think what you want. I thought the graphics in the first trailer looked pretty cool, but was worried they were prerendered. If the horse's mouth just confirmed that that was real time, then it's good enough for me.

Glad to see WiiU showing some graphic punch. This actually has me more excited about PS4/xbox720 possibilities, if the Wii U can do this, what will nextgen MS/Sony will be able to do?

The WiiU needs to show it's a lot better than current gen, even if it's not up to Sony/MS next gen standards, so that there's a feeling of upgrade when purchasing the WiiU, and pair it with several games that take advantage of that power, and then I'll get a WiiU. Right now, it feels its a PS3 with a tablet for $350 without exclusive games and old ports, and that's not going to sell the console.

Ironically, I love 3d and even more 3d gaming on my PC, if they had added 3d support for the WiiU, following 3ds trend, I'd have bought it day one, but that didn't happen.

Still, this reminds me of xbox1 robot demo that looked amazing but those graphics were never achieved in a game, so when I see that kind of graphics in the context of a game, I'll believe.

From a purely graphics perspective, I actually think the Wii U games do look better than the 360's and ps3's in some respects. There's just something about the lighting, the quality of the colors, and some of the texture effects that look really really good. Especially considering we are in the very earliest stage of Wii U game development.

If I were going to make an analogy it would be like an n64 vs ps1. The difference so far appears to be overall geometry verses better textures/shaders.

That said, slightly out doing the ps3 and 360 isn't really a huge feat, and the difference appears to be marginal so far.

Plus in less than a month no one will care. The ps4 is going to be shown and KZ4, gran tourismo, and what ever else Sony has up their sleeve is going to make this look last gen in comparison.

This site is full of pre-pubescent kids! all consoles today are amazing in what they offer including the wiiu! I grew up in a time when I had the commodore Vic 20! atari systems!

what these machines can do today in both games and entertainment is amazing! the wii u is fantastic and will only get better with time and development! so the next ps4 and xbox may trump it on specs? who cares! its what games and services and overall experience that matters! not whose is bigger and better!

in dark times as the world has seen in the last 6 years it would be good if everyone supported all including Nintendo! who wants to see another big company go bust and a comapany who's sole aim is to provide entertainment!

I love my wii u and zen 2, trine 2, blops 2 look and play great! if you wanna compare how systems looked at launch then look up cod 2 trailer on youtube for xbox and see what 7 years of development has done on cod!!!

Absolutely true.
I don't understand why many people hate this cool console. I buy WiiU this games Zelda WW-HD, Bayonetta 2, X, and many more (E3).
