We know Sega canceled the sequel but is it a good idea to release Bayonetta 2 on the Wii U? How are all the fans of the original supposed to respond?
Sega cancelled B2. Nintendo picked it up, thus, the exclusivity.
pretty much all that needs to be said
Thats a fantastic exclusive for the Wii U. I'm wondering why this wasn't announced at a bigger stage like E3. It would have easily been the best surprise of the show next to Watch Dogs.
The contract was prolly not done. And this explains P100 (Forgot the real name, sorry) Nintendo might have offered to publish B2 if P* made a launch title game for the WiiU. I could be completely wrong, but that is the theory I have... P100 seemed almost throw away when unveiled, not doubting it's gameplay... Just saying it is completely out of the blue for P* to do a game like that.
Totally agree. I was wondering what that P100 game was.
@lordme Wouldn't doubt it. That said, I love Platinum games, so the more, the better~
yea exactly and people still blame nintendo for it being exclusive what is bayonetta 2 doing on the wiiU i dont know.. ,maybe.... GETTING SAVED? EXISTING?
Saved hah, it didn't even do well at retail. Good luck trying to sell it on a console with zero install base.
@LOL, it's coming out a few months after release. It will have a solid base plus drive new sales.
o.o Shhh somebody don't let the author know wii have it share of dirty Matures games Mad World anyone or No more heroes. Also wasn't this one of the ps3 only site saying God war 3 is better then Bayonetta in everyway
God Of War no God War
Its on the Wii U as a exclusive because nintendo is paying for the production of the game. Remember because "Nintendo doesn't pay for exclusives".(lol the last part is a quote from Reggie)
Well, it's a little bit different. Since Platinum games is an independent developer, they need a publisher. Enter Nintendo with the publisher's hat on! It's like Last Story, which was developed by independent studio Mistwalker. Nintendo just won't pay a publisher huge sums of money to only release a game on their system, or to timed release a game on their system.
Nintendo love to lying
my issue is not that the game is on Wii U but that it is an exclusive being published by Nintendo!!!!!1 What da hell?!1
Better be exclusive to the wii u than being not made at all! Sea obviously didn't want to spend money on a bayonetta sequel.
I honestly don't think I could play this with the Gamer Pad, it better support the pro controler...either that or a miricle that when the PS4/72P launch there will be a port of it....I know I know it's punlished by Nintendo but I keep hearing about this Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 stuff which gives me hope.
*Replaces all the chairs in the room with soft Bean bags* ...Try to sit down really really slowly lol. P.S. I am loving every second of this.
haha xD as am i brother as am i people are actually disgusted by nintendo that its an exclusive what they are unaware of is that if it wasnt for nintendo that game wouldnt have seen the light of day
Good for nintendo. everyone else can keep crying. yeah, im buying ps4 and the wii u but im sure nintendo can benefit from this.
Not really sure what the big deal everyone is making about this. Bayonetta barely sold anything across multiple systems, so I am not sure why anyone is so sure the sequel sill sell so well on a single console. And people keep yelling 'It's a system seller'. I don't remember anyone running out and buying a PS3 or 360 just to play Bayonetta. So why is everyone so sure that it will sell well this time? In my opinion DMC was so much better. Rayman Origins didn't exactly break any sales records even though it was on many different systems and yet people believe it will break records on the Wii U. What makes people think it will attract anyone more then Origins did. It doesn't look like it looks or plays any different then Origins.
So you can't enjoy any game unless it's a "system seller"? Besides, anyone who enjoyed bayonetta 1 may seriously consider buying wii u for this game, no matter how small the game's fan base, it will move a certain amount of hardware. "In my opinion DMC was so much better." Too bad am bored from replaying DMC1&3 for the millionth time... For me, am glad that bayonetta 2 will actually see the light of day because the first one was brilliant!
I didn't say that. That is what everyone else keeps on saying. I never said it would be a system seller but people keep yelling that it will be for some reason. They seem to think that Bayonetta 2 on the Wii U mewans automatic sales or something but the original didn't sell very well across multiple systems so why do people think it will do any better on a single one? So you have a sequel of a whole game and hope that that the few people who brought it buy a whole Wii U just to play it? Then by that logic they should make a whole Okami game for the VITA or a whole new Psychonauts on the Ps3 just to get the few people who played them too.
"Of all the fans who loved Bayonetta, who actually believes that the majority of them will own the Wii U?" If your a fan of something you will go out and get the product no matter what.
Wow people like to complain, it would not of been made at all if it was not for Nintendo. This "If I cant have it then no one can" mentality is a bunch of bull shit.
You know how fans should respond, get a Wii U! Heck if you're one of the gamers that skipped out on the first Wii this time around for whatever reason, it's a good chance to explore an excellent backlog of titles~
Why is everyone stating the obvious? The author and everyone else is well aware WHY it's exclusive. The question is whether or not this fits on the Wii U and with the intended audience, and as most any Bayonetta or hardcore action fan will tell you, no, it doesn't. Obviously, not a lot of Bayonetta fans around here...otherwise, they wouldn't be confused as to why people are annoyed.
Mass Effect seems to be doing pretty good on the PS3. This should do good as well.
I'm going to leave this here. Nintendo publishing Monster Hunter Tri made it the most successful MH in the west. Bayonetta is in good hands.
If Nintendo didn't get games like Bayonetta as exclusive, everyone would be saying that Nintendo isn't trying to catch the 'hardcore' gaming market. You asked Nintendo to step their game up, and now that they have you're complaining?
