Hideki Kamiya himself confirms development of Bayonetta 2 and even teases that soon he will present the first look of the game.
If you're planning another lame PS3 port, don't even bother. PS3 owners don't need this crap. But I aint gonna buy this either way so I don't really care.
That's why PS3 was the lead platform for Vanquish. Vanquish held up extremely well on PS3,so I expect the same level of effort on PS3 for Bayonetta 2.
Gonna definitely play it but not buy it. I rented the first one and was happy that I did. The game was very lengthy too. It's a game that I play once but never again though.
"But I aint gonna buy this either way so I don't really care." Then why comment? BTW, the PS3 version outsold the 360 version.
because the first game is the most overrated piece of trash I've played this year and I'm still, to this very day, pissed that I handed over cash for the limited edition on day of release. I will take some solace in the fact that come release date for the sequel, I won't be fooled into believing the hype and opening my wallet a second time round. And the woman's got a tiny head; they oughta fix that.
Really? I just recently finished Bayonetta (PS3) and with the install it was pretty fluid. I loved the game- I even Platinum'd it!
i bought the first one for £12.99 pre-owned like 3 weeks after it came out, and if they dont fix this one on ps3 ill do the same
It won't. They led on PS3 with vanquish and that game is 20x more visually gorgeous than Bayonetta. The PS3 version is smooth and it helped the 360 version to be about equal. I expect bayonetta 2 will come much closer to nextgen blockbuster in it's graphics as long as they use their newest engine and not that ok'd one for B1.
Don't mess up the PS3 version. I actually sold the game back because the graphics and textures were so washed out that I couldn't see when enemies were going to strike. Who knows maybe I just sucked at the game..but I'm pretty sure that the washed out graphics played a HUGE role. If they gave the same care and attention to the PS3 version as they did with the 360 version, it would have been one of the best action games I've ever played. @Digitaldude- I didn't play the 360 version, but I didn't need to. In this stage in the game, Bayonetta's visuals were inexcusable. The PS3 port was so blurry in spots that it ACTUALLY affected the gameplay in that it was stupid hard to SEE and predict enemy attacks.
Lol i'm going to buy it cause Bayonetta was an extremely good game. After the patch load times were good and there were no problems, just blown out of proportion.
Yeah I seriously enjoyed this game, I had to get that platinum trophy. I can't wait til part 2 comes out, and like I said before, with the install the game ran smooth.
Exactly...i bought the first game becuz i played it on my friends 360, but when i played it on my ps3 i noteced big framrate issues and huge loading times plus less graphics? i sold it 1 week later.
Honestly, you're overreacting about the PS3 port. I played it on PS3 post-patch, and didn't had any problem with it (Aside from them textures).
Platinum games is probably doing the port this time round like in Vanquish so we'll see a similar result with that.
OMFG I AM SOO FUCKING HAPPY ! I LOVE BAYONETTA!
I'm surprised that they would even consider a Bayonetta 2 considering the 1st one flopped. Darksiders really overshadowed that game.
Shame cause Bayonetta oh so much better than darksiders.
Bayonetta is pretty much overrated. Crappy story, so-so character design and a decent gameplay, which maybe complicated on the surface but not so much deep like some people stated. Not to mention the PS3 port is damn frustrating to play. But, it's a pretty fun game nonetheless. Bayonetta 2 should put some deep into the characters and story, and make the fuking game perform equally on both consoles.
Dude i took the game more as a fan-service. Throwbacks to Outrun/Hang-On and Afterburner; even Viewtiful Joe. Bayonetta was the shit.
decent gameplay ?? PS3 port is damn frustrating to play?? sorry but it seems that you didn't even touch or play the game...
@j-blaze: lol dude, for an action game like Bayonetta, running at a decent framerate ( higher than 50FPS )is one of the most important aspects because it decides the responsiveness of the combo. If you touched the ps3 version, you would know that the game hardly ever run above 30FPS even after the patch right? The thing I don't like about the gameplay part is that you use the same combo button for every weapon set, and the attack speed is slow, unlike DMC, where you can pull out combo at crazy speed. The mechanic is simple, you can dodge mid-combo and hold button for extra effects. Some weapons have different advantages but hardly help since you can abuse weapons like Killgore or Pillow talk. The gameplay may sound complicated, but that's is. Nothing special to me. However, I still said it's fun right? @sonicsidewinder: so you play the game for the look? In that case, I have no comment.
Of course look isn't everything. The gameplay was fun, flashy and attractive. The soundtrack was decent too. All the throwback references are just iceing on the proverbial cake. Adds to the charm. The fact it didnt really take itself seriously was fun too.
Wut wut wut? Lmao! rjdofu, Sega recoded the animations for PS3 version. And the frame rate hardly drops apart from that falling clock tower stage. And killgore and pillowtalk you say? You have to beat the game on the hardest difficulty to get Pillowtalk. yeah, no fun at all... Pathetic really, at least don't make stuff up. Oh, and the mechanics were certainly no less complicated than Dmc, just like you choose to abuse the killgore bug, you can choose to use moon of Maha Kalaa and the such. selective judgmenet ftw, right buddy?
@Malicious: 1.5 million copies of Bayonetta sold between 360/Ps3, hardly a flop, try doing some research before spouting off kid. Anyway, Bayonetta is the best hack and slash this gen. The only thing the mediocre Darksiders is overshadowing is the bargain bin.
Don't state your opinion as fact guzman. Too many people, Darksiders was an excellent game. I still hit agree though because 1.5 million is definitely not a flop.
Is God of War considered a hack/slash game? If so, I disagree with you- GOW 3 is the best hack/slash game this gen. Now... Bayonetta is the best hack/slash MULTIPLATFORM game this generation, by a mile.
Bayonetta only sold 1.5 million copies between 2 consoles but couldn't do that much for a single console? If it really was the best hack & slash this gen then it should've pulled in more numbers than that. God of War 3 is the best hack & slash this gen. It got double sales of Bayonetta (with GoW3 only being released on 1 console) and it has the higher average rating. Bayonetta is mediocre at best.
Yeah, apart from yourself, Malicious, nobody considered it's sales a 'flop'. get your facts straight. Oh, and I'm sick of people comparing different games. Ignorant fanboys. That overrated, overhyped Rygar clone called Gow should be compared to the likes of DI, or Darksiders. Bayonetta should be put against Dmc or NG. It's ludicrous really, even your precious Jaffe said the same. http://spong.com/article/22...
First - you have to be insane if you believe an exclusive would sell twice the amount if it was on both consoles. And 1.5 million for a niche game like Bayonetta is more than successful. Second: stop comparing different games and grasping at straws. sales =/= quality. Also, anyone who thinks there's a difference between 92 and 90 is a sad man. It gets two idiots on Metacritic to lower your metascore a point or two. And Bayonetta got better scores from many.
Awesome, I was really interested in the first, but couldn't bring myself to play through the sloppy job they did with the PS3 port. I'm hoping this one will be like Vanquish, in terms of performance across different platforms.
So what are the features that will make this a true upgrade to bayonetta? More nudity? Lesbian sex scenes? Motion tracking done by professional strippers? In all seriousness, this game needs to go to hell. It has no class and only does harm to the gaming industry. We were just starting to get past the stereotype that gamers are all immature horny 12 year olds but now we have this game to thank for killing our reputation for the next 10 years.
I wish I could bubble you down for lame comment. They have fun with her sexuality. This game doesn't ruin anything. I'm not sure if you actually played it, because it's one of the best action games ever made.
LOL WTF is going on with you dude? Not all gamers masturbate while playing Bayonetta like you say hahaha. I buy the game because despite the shallow characters, the gameplay provides enough fun factor to keep me playing.
Dsnyder: You only have to look to the latest COD or gears games to be embarrased of the gaming industry. Sounds like you're into the hulking stud type more than girls, that's cool man there's no shame digging games with bros icing bros.
You sound like you've overdosed on Jesus Christ. Calm down, oh righteous one.
Sick. The first game was amazing. GoW3 and Baynetta are the two best action/adventure games I've played on this generation of consoles. I can't wait for the next installment.
If its coming out next year then it will be an auto flop. I know im buying atleast 18 games next year, 11 of which are PS3 exclusives. In my 20 years of gaming ( im 26) next year will be the biggest year ive bought the most games in a single year ever.
ugh.....cool story bro?
I enjoyed the first, i'm happy to hear a sequel is on its way! :)
No, just no. Devil May Cry is an extraordinary series. From story, to gameplay, to the non-stop action, to graphics, voice acting. Bayonetta doesn't hold a candle to DMC. It is a decent game, a bit overrated, but not bad by any means.
Story in DMC? Are you serious? And the gameplay is rock solid in Bayo, just like DMC. Way more combo available in Bayo. And the non-stop action is for Bayo too... Did you really play this game??
DMC and Bayonetta were made by the same guy lol, they are very very similar, I guess you didn't even play the game.
I overall liked Bayonetta better than DMC. ...
No.... play the full game.
Dmc 4 was a joke. Didnt finish it due to how cheap it was. "Do all those levels again, backwards!" ugh...
imo dante is a better character then the witch lady sooooooo cheesy but the fighting mechanics were the best in an action game but the overall package isnt that great it doesnt really have high production value
100% agreed. I couldn't even finish DMC 4...
Great news. I'm playing through Bayonetta now and enjoying it. Not the best story so far but the ridiculous action more than makes up for it. I only hope Platinum games can make both versions equal this time.
Has a better ending than Story.
way too early rediculse It has been less than a year since the release, including JP release.
The game came out in October 29th in Japan. It will be coming out on the 2 year mark. I assume the REAL official announcement will be done by SEGA close to E3. Play tests at game cons, then released in the fall in Japan, here early 2012.
they are working on it .. it's not like it's going into the store tomorrow . Besides it's more than a year after the original release
Call it Bayonetta's Alaska
What's up with the hate?
The PS3 owners hate Bayonetta because their port was busted. There were patches to fix the game but they still despised it because a lot of ignorant people compared it to God of War III and nothing could touch their precious God of War III.
That port wasn't even that bad, their just sad because it was not as good as the 360 version, and I don't even have a 360. I have the PS3 version of Bayonetta, and it is still a great game.
sweeet !! i really hope so, Bayonetta is one of my favourite games this gen its the best action game since DMC3 !!
GREAT! Can't wait to see it. Thanks Kamiya! Go much further over the top and blast the lame Ninja Theory Dante.
Looking forward to this. I enjoyed Bayonetta, depite the PS3 port being one of the worst I've encountered. The game was HUGELY underrated, and probably a better overall game than God of War 3. Platinum bounced back with Vanquish so I'm expecting the same with this Bayonetta sequel.
Great. I'd just gotten over my embarrassment from the last one.
lol my boy saw me complete it with the dancing scene at the end now that was embarrassing
I hope the game doesn't suffer if they do lead on the PS3. Normally if a developer leads on the PS3 they generally keep the same art assets including lower quality textures due to the PS3 having less available RAM and the 360 version just gets a bump in lighting quality and/or AA. Bayonetta played more like an action comedy and it was nice playing a game that didn't take itself seriously and that didn't feature a gritty and depressing environment like so many games have this gen. GoWIII just wasn't as fun to play.
need to trade in god of war 3 for this, already spent my money on castlevania los. bayonetta 1 is one of my favorite hack and slash of all time. gameplay certainly one of the reasons but considering bayonetta is the sluttiest sexiest whore in gaming.....i'm drooling. wish the transformation will cause even more revealing in bayonetta 2. i'm cumming baby.
one of my best games will get a sequel, confirmed! yay! :) for me it's better than GOW III or any DMC.. btw Platinum/clover are my best developers quality>quantity :)
Loved Bay, I'm sure PS3 will be the lead platform again, and with the 'soon', anyone else thinking VGA's?
Hope the PS3 port this time is better, than the first was awful. But the game itself was okay in my book, nothing beats the king ;) Vanquish was performed better on PS3 than 360, less screentearing, hook up digital foundry for evidence :)
