If your game's got guns and/or swords set in a fantasy world, it better damn well play like Capcom's Devil May Cry. Bayonetta is one game in development that has all three aforementioned qualities that made DMC so popular...no, scratch that, it has four. The fourth quality being Hideki Kamiya, the creator of the first Devil May Cry game.
So if you've heard and seen Bayonetta and you thought to yourself "wow, what a rip-off of Devil May Cry", you now know why. Granted, it's unfair to call Bayonetta a rip-off, considering that the creator of Capcom's title is behind this game. But Bayonetta takes things a few steps further to differentiate itself from DMC. For starters, as opposed to a demon, you take on the role of a female witch who goes by the name of Bayonetta. As Bayonetta, you'll hunt down mutated incarnations of angels, an unusual approach, but at the same time one we're excited to see pan out."
