I am sure it will depend on how well this does on the Wii U.

iamnsuperman736d ago

Pretty much. Bayonetta didn't do well as a multiplatform title which meant Nintendo had to rescue it. If it doesn't sell on the Wii U a sequel is out of the question (I don't know who would fund it)

Summons75736d ago

Doing well is a bit subjective. Sega only cares about money and not the fans hence why bayo2 got left to die and us in the west will never see another Yakuza game despite how much we beg. I bet Nintendo will green light a 3rd as long as fan reception is there. It coming with the first game for free is going to help as well. Wonderful 101 didn't sell well but it got great reception and there have been talks about a sequel.

Perhaps the Anime could get some cash.

Bayonetta sold about 2 million copies on HD twins thought surprised a bit that nobody except Nintendo wanted to fund it and weird that Sega rejected idea for funding the sequel.

I mean, too game to be profitable on 7th generation HD twins it needs to sell 700-800 thousand of retail copies at 60$ to cover development costs and per copy the publisher gets about 24$ while if it was a first party game it would get 31$ because of course you don't pay platform licensing fee per copy.

Anyway we should be glad that Nintendo stepped in and saved the game from being one of those games that sequels were in development yet ended up being scrapped because there weren't any publishers willing to release it and one of those games could have been a cult classic.

I need to point out, generally knowing Nintendo... If the game yields twice as much as they invested then they will surely invest money in its sequel, look at Pikmin series or Fire Emblem and same thing applies to Bandai Namco's Tales Of series.

I wish more publishers were like that...

Hopefully it's a PS4 exclusive because this last gen technology isn't getting me excited for Bayonetta 2.

She's still hot. And that short hair really looks sexy. Would love to see more of her awesome moves if there's going to be Bayonetta 3.

But why is Sarah Palin fighting monsters?

ritsuka666736d ago

If BAYO 2 sell well on WII U Nintendo will help bayonetta 3 for WII U exclusive.

NihonjinChick736d ago

It depends on how much money Nintendo is willing to throw at it. Nintendo continues to fund Fatal Frame games even though the sales of those games are pretty lackluster.

paulcek736d ago

That's because Nintendo still makes some money off of Fatal Frame. And there are those persistent fans that keep asking for it, so why not?

If Nintendo makes money off of Bayo 2, then I don't see why they wouldn't fund Bayo 3.

MNGamer-N735d ago

I wonder how much it costed to make Bayo 2

OtakuDJK1NG-Rory736d ago

Nintendo will fund it regardless of how much it sells. Nintendo doesn't work on game reaching sales number unless it one of their long running series. Which they did for both Star Fox 64 3D and Fire Emblem Awakening.

sprinterboy736d ago

Didn't enjoy the first on ps3, ejected disk after 2 hrs, will the wii u crowd support it? My opinion no, 3rd unlikely

deafdani736d ago

You talk like Mordin Solus.

randomass171736d ago

Wasn't PS3 widely considered the least best version due to low performance? Maybe you should try the game again on 360 or Wii U.

deafdani735d ago (Edited 735d ago )

I own the PS3 version (wanted it for 360, but my Xbox got stolen and I never replaced it).

And yup, the PS3 version is a bit muddy graphically, and has the absolute worst screen tearing I've ever seen in my life... but even with those issues, the game is still perfectly playable (after patches, that is). Loading times are fine, framerate was fine for the most part, controls are fine.

So, if Mordin Solus here didn't like it on the PS3 (assuming he patched it), then there's very little chance of him enjoying it on Xbox 360, no matter how much the performance is improved.

OtakuDJK1NG-Rory736d ago

That funny

Nintendo Fans aren't like you dude bros gamers.

thehobbyist736d ago (Edited 736d ago )

Base your opinion on what is unanimously considered the WORST version of the first game. Argument invalid. Especially considering the PS3 version is apparently so bad that the Wii U version of the first is built off of the 360 version.

deafdani735d ago

I have the PS3 version. Graphics are a bit rough, and it has pretty bad screen tearing, but those aside, it's perfectly playable and it's still a pretty damn good game.

Which means that the Xbox 360 version must be absolutely amazing, but that doesn't make the PS3 version terrible nor anything like that.

Baka-akaB735d ago (Edited 735d ago )

You just dont think . Nintendo needs it regardless of how it sells , to show a more diverse portfolio . Just like Sony was expecting initially Heavy Rain to be a small success for the sake of showing a diverse portfolio of games . And it could very well be a surprise and sell better
