Wii U Gamers Want The First Bayonetta Released On The Wii U EShop

Bayonetta 2 reveal actually shocked quite a few players as it was completely unexpected: the first game was released on Ps3 and Xbox 360 a few years ago and Platinum Games was actually sceptical about developing a sequel. Thanks to Nintendo, the team decided to develop the game as a Wii U exclusive.

After the reveal a few gamers have asked about a possible Bayonetta release on the Wii U eShop to allow players who have missed the game to play it on the new Nintendo console. Hideki Kamiya, Platinum Games’ boss, didn’t actually deny the possibility, simply stating on a Twitter post back in January that it’s up to Nintendo and Sega. (eShop, Nintendo, Sega, Wii U)

good luck.. Theyd have to add some gamepad features & everything to it.. If Bayo 2 sells well, they might do it.. Up to the fans on what they receive.. If they dont buy the games, devs wont release them

"Theyd have to add some gamepad features"

Off-TV play. Problem solved. Plus they can use the download to promote the sequel.

what he said.

DivineAssault is skeptical about everything, he's one of those 'sales equals everything guys'

How about just releasing Bayonetta 1 on the Wii U eShop and see how the sales do. You know, like how games used to be released.

Why the fu*k do we have to wait to see Bayonetta 2's sales, to get Bayonetta 1?

On top of that, DivineAssault has no idea how much it costs to put a game on the Wii U eShop, so his point is invalid.

Simple solution here - Nintendo purchases Sega. Then Nintendo can release any SEGA game they want. Case closed.
darthv72  +   863d ago
and then
the gamepad becomes the new VMU for all dreamcast re-releases.

that aint half bad come to think of it.
koehler83  +   863d ago
I'm pretty sure Nintendo buying Sega, or vice-versa would cause irreparable damage to space-time.
camel_toad  +   863d ago
That makes me wonder if Sega would ever entertain the idea of getting back into the hardware business. HIGHLY unlikely but that would be interesting.

Gonna disagree purely for the fact that i want to play more valkyrie chronicles on PS3/Vita (PS4?)
adorie  +   862d ago
Lol. If Nintendo bought them out,I'd still keep buying their games, but that's only because we have a Wii U in the house, if not, I don't think I would be getting another Sega game any time after such a purchase.

I do have preferences and seeing as how Sega is making games on all platforms, I just can't see them trading their freedom and profit margins to become one with Nintendo.
ISNeko  +   862d ago
Bet Nintendo could make a great Sonic side scroller.
dungeonboss  +   863d ago
They don't need to add anything. Just dump a straight port of the 360 version onto the eShop. Off-TV play would be nice, but I think Nintendo fans that skipped the other consoles last gen really don't care and just want the game without having to buy an old console. I guess that's up to Sega, though.

Wii U gamers just want freaking games.
Venox2008  +   863d ago
Bayo 1 is freakin awesome game! :) I would rebuy it for eShop
die_fiend  +   863d ago
In other news, 360 and ps3 owners want bayonetta 2

B2 is time Exclusive
gamer42  +   863d ago
how do you know that? When its nintendo publishing and even helping in the development of the game.
Minato-Namikaze  +   863d ago
@gamer

MS published Mass effect and Ninja Gaiden 2. Point being there are ways around publishing deals. But I havent even finished B1 yet so i can wait a bit if it will be timed (probably not timed though)
stuna1  +   863d ago
@gamer42

So was Mass Effect! Just saying.
animegamingnerd  +   863d ago
@Minato-Namikaze nintendo isn't M$
gamer42  +   863d ago
@ minato and stuna1

I'm not saying it will never appear in other consoles in one way or another, but nintendo is publishing this games and therefore hold the rights to this game and unless nintendo allows it to be ported, like microsoft did to mass effect 1 and ninja gaiden 2. The reason why Mass Effect 2 and 3 were put on PS3 in the first place was because of bioware being bought by EA. At this point we aren't certain, but I know nintendo wouldn't put so much effort in acquiring a game just to have it being a timed exclusive.
admiralvic  +   863d ago
It might be, it might not be. Even if Nintendo were to allow it on other consoles, it's hard to say how the title with fare and more importantly who will publish it. We've seen Sega screw up marketing PG plenty of times, so I am not quite sure who would foot the bill. Also we don't know how important the touchpad will be, so it might be a virtually permeant exclusive like I suspect Zombi U will be.
Magnus  +   862d ago
Bayonetta 2 is not a timmed exclusive. Nintendo published it. The game will not see PS3 or Xbox 360. Only way Bayonetta 2 would be a timmed exclusive is if its released on the console for a bit. Like Mass Effect 1 was on the Xbox 360. Nintendo payed for the game to be published a Nintendo title it shall stay.
Dark_Overlord  +   863d ago
Exactly my thoughts, I remember when it was first announced that B2 was a WiiU exclusive and certain Nintendo fans were saying 'well buy a WiiU if you want to play it' the same could be said for this situation, if you want to play B1 get a PS3 or 360 (Though the 360 version is far better)
Dj7FairyTail  +   862d ago
I have it on 360
want it on Wii U why because it will be better with the Pro Controller, Miiverse and better version of course.
Dark_Overlord  +   862d ago
lol at the disagrees, funny how when the tables are turned people don't like it :D
Theyellowflash30  +   863d ago
Bayonetta 2 is not a timed exclusive.
Summons75  +   863d ago
Why the EShop? Why not bundle it as a promo when you buy bayonetta 2 ? That makes more sense if saga even allows it to be published on it. I loved the fort bayonetta so I'll be buying 2 no matter what but I would play 1 on the wiiu in a heart beat.
lovegames718  +   863d ago
Resp die friend....

Funny you say that there are millions upon millions of ps3/Xbox fans yet Bayonet ta only sold a million between two consoles Lol No most don't give a crap about Bayonet ta its just ppl like you exaggerating its importance because its one of the few exclusives Nintendo is getting soon. Kinda like how ppl hype up pikmin as a system seller yet it barely broke a million on previous systems and on Wii it did abysmal.

Lol on here really have a distorted reality of things lol
GraveLord  +   863d ago
Wii U gamers? No. Nintendo fanboys.

Most of these people saying they want this or that game don't end up buying it. The game flopped on PS3 and Xbox 360 and it will flop even harder as a digital-only release on the eShop on the dying Wii U.
Dj7FairyTail  +   862d ago
I have Bayonetta on 360
getting Bayonetta 2 on Wii U
and I want the game on eShop.
I prefer Nintendo over Sony and Microsoft because I am a fan. I have all consoles.

Oh looky here I got the game.
breakpad  +   863d ago
Wii U gamers should be happy if Bayonetta 2 will be actually released for their console or if it stays exclusive for Wii U........because i dont see the WiiU going very well lately...lot of developers start to having second thoughts
meganick  +   862d ago
Nintendo is publishing Bayonetta 2, so it will come to Wii U and it will remain exclusive.
breakpad  +   862d ago
....Microsoft published the first Mass effect...now its multi..also see what happened to Ninja Gaiden 3 razor edge...promoted as exclusive for the Wii U console....
just-joe  +   862d ago
@gamepard

Platinum has already said that the possibility of the game going multi platform is not up to them, but Nintendo.
meganick  +   862d ago
This would be nice to get a good port of the 360 version on Wii U since I can only play the shoddy PS3 port.
Magnus  +   862d ago
Its only logical to release the first Bayonetta on the Wii-U it will add sales to Segas pocket. I mean EA finally released Mass Effect 1 to the PS3 both in a hard copy with MAss Effect 2 and 3 and they did a PSN download with Mass Effect 1 I bought it. I think Sega not releasing Bayonetta 1 on the Wii-U store would be a really stupid move.
gamer7804  +   862d ago
sure put bayonetta 1 on wiiu, but also put bayonetta 2 on xbox 360 and ps3. We can dream i guess.
TheBardsSong  +   862d ago
I'd rather have it as a retail release.
