Amazon Canada Says Bayonetta 1 Will be On Disc

Ever since E3 there has been no shortage of confusion on how this Bayonetta 2 promotion works. At first, Nintendo said that all those who purchase Bayonetta 2 will receive a digital version of the original Bayonetta. Then, territories like Europe announced that Bayonetta 1 would actually be on its own separate disc. The American website for Bayonetta only added to the confusion when it listed a statement saying that those who purchase Bayonetta 2 digitally actually would not get the original for free, only those who bought the game at retail.

Adding to the confusion is Amazon Canada, which in a response to a customer stated that the original Bayonetta would actually be on disc.

While I would love for this to be true, this is most likely (would help to have the actual E-Mail) a CS rep talking out their ***. It happens all the time and about as much of a confirmation as someone posting it will be a disc on N4G.

"Hopefully Nintendo clarifies this situation sooner rather than later, because I need to know how much shelf space to clear out when I buy Bayonetta this October."

I don't see why someone needs to point this out, but if it is a disc release, it will 99.9999999999% just be an insert in the Bayonetta 2 case. In case you never noticed, every Wii U case (even weird ones like the green Luigi U one) have these pointless plastic clamps in the middle of the case. These clamps are logically there to hold a piece of plastic designed to hold another disc and most likely how they will handle a physical Bayonetta instead of a full blown physical version or even a larger case.

I'm willing to bet it's one disc. The first game fit on 360 disc just fine. Wii U uses proprietary bluerays so there should be more than enough room for that game AND the first one.If I'm not mistaken all the spare space on the ps3 release made for long load times. Hope that's not the case on Wii U

it not exactly Blu-Ray though

Wii U discs have 25 GB of storage space per layer. That's the exact amount that a blu-ray has on each layer. So while it might not be a Blu-Ray in name, it has the same storage space.

It's been said since the E3 that the game wont have Bayonetta 1 when bought from the Eshop. This said, at least for me, it's obvious the extra will be in the disc version only, because it'll come in the form of a... well, a disc.

I don't think this will net you a copy of Bayonetta on PC. You would need a publisher to fund it and I doubt anyone other than Nintendo is biting.
