"Bayonetta was a cult hit when it first came out on the Xbox 360 and PS3 platforms. Its burlesque hero and over the top action was a huge assault on casual action game enthusiasts. Never the less, Bayonetta found her devoted audience, and over time more people discovered the game. When it was announced that Bayonetta 2 would be published exclusively by Nintendo on its Wii U platform, many people were perplexed by this. The fact of the matter is Nintendo is the only reason why Bayonetta 2 exists today, and because of Nintendo, Platinum Games has crafted what could quite possibly be the heavy weight contender for the 2014 Game of the Year."
