Bayonetta is a great franchise, no matter what system it is on. But Bayonetta's place in the public eye owes a lot to its nurturing from Nintendo. It feels more like a Nintendo franchise than a SEGA one.
Yup and if nintendo is smart, theyll use that relationship with platinum to make some fantastic other games to add in quality M rated exclusive software..
Not so sure about that, most of their games are fast paced action games which require high fps to be played properly. If they want those games on all 3 consoles it basically means creating a different version for the switch. With bayo 2 they had the luxury to only create a Wii U version and the switch version is barely any different from it graphically. I hope the switch gets the love from Platinum that they deserve, though im a bit skeptical about it.
Nier could easily run on Switch.
You realize just about any game can run at 60fps, yes? It's just about making compromises elsewhere to make it happen. Likewise, games can look truly outstanding... If you're willing to sacrifice performance elsewhere.
As a PlayStation owner In glad Nintendo saved this franchise. Even though I can't play it I'm happy it still exists. Plus we have Nier Automata anyway :)
Switch will have Bayonetta and this E3 PS4 will have DMC5. Everyone should be happy but someone will complain just because.
Nier and Baonetta are both awesome.
I still wish Sega would’ve included Bayonetta in their other crossovers like Sega All-Stars Racing Transformed and Project X Zone 1&2
Well whenever Project X Zone 3 comes to Switch she could be added.
Just make PXZ3 a fighting game.
So what’s with Nintendo not releasing Bayonetta 1 & 2 both on carts, seeing how they’reheavily invested in this franchise? You’d think they wouldn’t do the same practice that third party publishers do with collections on Switch where one game is on the cart while the other is a download so they don’t have to spend money on a more costly larger cart size, but alas even Nintendo doesn’t want to release games on a bigger cartridge.
Oh they did release both on carts... in Japan.
"So what’s with Nintendo not releasing Bayonetta 1 & 2 both on carts" That might be a choice made by Sega and not Nintendo, who knows and they did in Japan as Crimson has pointed out
They should’ve done so worldwide
Indeed Nintendo and Platinum together a match made in heaven. Now bring us Vanquish and a sequel:)
Vanquish was amazing though I think it wasnt very profitable for them. Would love to see a sequel on any console, as long as it happens.
Ninty should own the vanquish franchise aswell and make 2
Vanquish, a game that just has that generic sega feel. Not to mention the protagonist has to smoke every 5 minutes.
>generic sega feel explain
@sinking it's hard to explain, but after I played a little and before I looked it up I said to myself, "this feels like a sega game". Something about the art style, animations, and controls. I eliminated it being other publishers off that and it didn't feel like a top tier quality game. I guess platinum games has that distinction, but I only say it has that sega feeling because they're the publishers.
ive never seen so much ass kissing in gaming as i have in the last year with the nintendo switch. its a half assed home console and a decent on the go device with limited battery power, 720 screen, no online yet, 3rd party games are downgraded big time. its doing well and thats great for it, kudos to them and they will stretch out the big hits and keep it going im sure but lets not kid ourselves, everyone is giving this thing a pass on power meanwhile we have idiots on gaming sites fighting over resolution on ps4 and xbox, so which is it, power or games or what. if a game on ps4 or xbox is missing one slight thing there is article after article ripping it but nintendo gets a game on the switch no matter what it is and its nothing but praises no matter how downgraded a game is
I agree it's really overhyped. Apart from zelda and Mario there's nothing else much on it. The online is ridiculous, and all this on the go nonsense I'd like to know people's ages I think there kids. I've not seen anyone take out a switch at work or in town centers
"Apart from zelda and Mario there's nothing else much on it." Mario + Rabbids? Xenoblade? Splatoon 2? Arms? Bomberman? Golf Story? Plenty of other ports or non-exclusive games as well.
“I've not seen anyone take out a switch at work or in town centers“ Not seen a single one myself, I still see 3DS and even 2DS being taken out of people’s pockets If most people aren’t taking it out like the 3DS then what’s the point, should have made a full on console without worrying about the second screen. I’d rather see a 3DS successor
..at work with several others here☺
@Foxtrot "Not seen a single one myself" Meaning what exactly? You've not seen one in public which means what?
Over hyped? I guess people are forgetting the numerous article stating it would fail lol.
@TekoIie Dude chill your bean I’m just agreeing with that point he’s made. On the attack much...
You must not live in LA then.
I'm on a college campus, and I see Switches pretty regularly in common areas.
Lol, Foxtrot hasn't seen it, the all seeing eye. Pfft, you're a nobody, no one cares what you see.
@foxtrot Not attacking. Why so defensive? Was really wondering what this anecdote means if some people say they've not seen one in public. But I guess you didn't necessarily think it that far >.>
Lol I agree with a point someone made and suddenly it’s like I’ve said “my word matters” I literally only said “not seen any myself”....that’s it. I say that but you guys getting defensive see “I’ve never seen any so obviously it’s not that popular since my word counts” Do you guys just see things which aren’t there so you can reply with something Jesus N4G fanboy talk in a nutshell
"but lets not kid ourselves, everyone is giving this thing a pass on power meanwhile we have idiots on gaming sites fighting over resolution on ps4 and xbox, so which is it, power or games or what." It's probably power for you isn't it? Seeing as you've come into a Bayonetta article and then just started talking about resolution and 3rd parties being downgraded. So whag relevance does that have to the topic of Bayonetta becoming more associated with Nintendo than Sega?
Its called a a comment section related to the switch.
@MeteorPanda Oh my bad I didn't realise you could talk about the Xbox one and PS4 in a Nintendo comment section related to switch for an article that I don't think even mentions them.
I've actually seen quite a few people with their switches out around my campus. I guess it just depends where you live..
Yeah, compare the power of a portable to stationary consoles 8x its size. Makes sense! Everything else you said is equally silly.
“everyone is giving this thing a pass on power meanwhile we have idiots on gaming sites fighting over resolution on ps4 and xbox, so which is it, power or games or what” It has been, and will always be, games first and foremost for the majority gamers.
that wasnt the case for the last 4 years though, it was about that 200p difference, so which is it
@bolimekurac For the beginning of this generation most of the games on both consoles were exactly the same, with a few exclusives here and there. This is why resolution differences were talked about so heavily, because game libraries were so similar. Now the game libraries are much more different, in part because many third party studios are making exclusive content for PS4. I’m sure I don’t need to tell you how different the Switch’s library is from either.
Lmao off that was a funny read, you should consider working for CNN.
- Best Portable System - It Has Online - The Battery Power is the same as 3DS and Vita but varies depending on how demanding the game is. - False. Third Party games aren't downgraded big time. Proof you don't own a Switch.
Gonna play 1&2 next month, never played the second game
Unlike DMC2 Bayo 2 is so much better than the first. Awesome game.
Cant wait. Im just so happy they make a 3rd one
They can have it, I have never been a fan of the franchise. But I certainly felt it could use the exclusive treatment. I didn’t expect it to be Nintendo but I didn’t have any expectations at all. It’s consistently sold pretty sub par. But hitting a million to 2 on a single device shows it has a fan base and that’s all that matters
I'd love to see a remastered 4k version of Bayonetta 1 and Vanquish, I would buy that in a heartbeat.
then buy it from steam no need for a remaster but i guess you only own a console
sorry incorrect, I have a pc, but I only own a 2k monitor, but I own a 4k tv with HDR and dolby atmos surround sound. Obvious which one is the better choice in my situation.
then i guess if gamed on PC you would know about DRS or GForce experience or the AMD equivalent
Just connect you PC to your TV. :facepalm:
not everyone, the facts are most people don't have a pc that can play games at 4k. I know mine will push 2k but barely. If you want to pay a grand for me to upgrade I'd take you up on it.
Then why do you want a "4K version" when your hardware can't handle it?
I have an xbox one x also, I bet the ps4 pro could get at 2k maybe higher w/ checkerboard
No one else wanted it on PlayStation/Xbox, so I guess Nintendo may as well have it. The series doesn’t interest me at all, but if it helps boost Switch sales then that’s a good thing for getting other 3rd party AAA games that I may want. Right now DKC:TF is the only Switch game I want in the near future, but I’m still holding out hope for Fire Emblem & Animal Crossing for 2018 on Switch.
They need to give us a look at Fire Emblem soon. It's probably my most anticipated Switch game for the near future.
I have a PS4 Pro and a Switch. And sometimes I just feel like sitting on the couch with the screen in my hands.
who cares ..its such a niche title.
And yet 95% of my PS4 games are niche titles including the one in my avatar.
Lol most PS4 exclusives are niche titles.
LOL yet they have been selling and reviewing incredibly well. Keep those "niche" titles coming then, Sony.
I really want to get into this game. I love the character design, and combat system. It's awesome that Nintendo is keeping it alive and it runs great on the switch. However I can't get past the language. Yeah I know I'm THAT guy, but remove the constant curse like a sailor language and what are you left with? An awesome game! It adds nothing! Plus most families with a switch have kids. No way you can play this game around them. People will argue and say take your superior smug attitude someplace else I'm ok with all the cursing, but in real life if someone comes to you directly saying "Hey mother f*cker I heard your candy a$$ was in town. How about your b!tch a$$ buy me a drink?" your probably not going to react in a positive way or feel like being friendly. Just trying to make a point....If I want cursing I'll walk out my front door. Don't need it in my games.
I'm right there with you but my issue is with the over sexualization. It's like, we get it, her hair is her clothes and also her powers. But the game feels like it plays way too hard on that aspect and it honestly just makes the entire thing feel corny as hell. I also feel like it's the only response Nintendo had to the "Nintendo only has kiddie games" argument. It's like they picked it up and are funding it JUST so they have a game that they can wave around any time people bring up their lack of mature rated games.
I think the over the top feel/cheesiness is intentional which I can appreciate, but yes the over sexualization does go too far. There is nothing wrong with being sexy, and like I stated I love the character design, but there is a difference between sexy and slutty. Sadly it's something we tend to not understand anymore.
Nah she dont belong to Nintendo despite the being its sugar daddy, do you see Nintendo characters clothes getting ripped to tease their genitals?
Love playing this on the go!
its a shame really, would have loved to play the 2nd amd 3rd on my ps. but im glad Nintendo has the rights for it now.
I still say that Bayonetta is first and foremost a Platinum baby, because Sega just doesn't really care much at all these days.XD But ownership papers still say it's a Sega franchise regardless. Still, despite both of those things, it feels nice to see the franchise being given a chance by Nintendo, who has a [somewhat false] reputation for being kinda against M-rated games. I know I'm enjoying it, and I can't wait for #3. It'd be amazing if that landed later this year.
Yeah it is and I play the crap out of the first two. I cannot wait for the third one.
