Bayonetta 2 trailer confirmed as real-time graphics on WiiU

The developer video from Platinum Games shown during the most recent WiiU Nintendo Direct presentation. Showed off a very huge monster at the end, which most believed to be CGI. But was confirmed through Twitter by Yusuke Hashimoto to be in game graphics.

That's good news, because the monster looked quite impressive, and if this rendered in real time with the game engine, then I don't think we'll have to worry about what kind of visuals the Wii U can pump out..

Ck1x3890d ago

I agree! If this is any indication of What Platinum Games may show off at e3 of Bayonetta 2. People are going to be really shocked at how WiiU games stack up against the PS4 & 720. Especially since people are now using photos of the GPU die to now say that it's weaker than both the PS3&360... Most of the things they are guessing at are custom designed and they have no clue what this chip is capable of, or its functions. But they still guess anyways. Next they will come out and say WiiU is just 4 GameCubes duct-taped together. Lol

We havent see how the graphics that ps4 and xbox720 are going to be which i believe are going to be way better than this

MmaFan-Qc3889d ago

well, we cant say that the Bayonetta 2 video was impressive, in fact it was pretty minimalist and barely showed us something.

nothing to be hyped really, if you played the first game... you know exactly what you will get.

now lets hope that the game wont bomb like MadWorld did simply because its not where the target audience is.

metroid323889d ago

Here the gpu is officially the.


simple as that there was no need for the tear down it has 32 MB Edram for both gpu and cpu,2GB RAM,it has a GPGPU,Memory intensive design,Iwata said all this ages ago,so couple this with my link and that Mayamoto's words that he believes the cpu isn't weak and seing Xenoblade and Beyonetta2 ect it's not a HD4670 ????

JP13693889d ago

Sorry, but most of that image in cloaked in shadow. Not exactly proof of power.

Ritsujun3889d ago

Don't get mad when PS3&X360 get Bayonetta 2 HD Edition few years later and PS4&X720 Bayonetta 2 VHD Edition, just like many of those 3rd party Nintendo exclusives.

corrus3889d ago

PS4 specs the real specs

System Memory: 8GB
Video Memory: 2.2 GB

GPU: AMD R10xx
Ports: 4x USB 3.0, 2x Ethernet
Drive: Blu-Ray
HDD: 160GB
Audio Output: HDMI & Optical, 2.0, 5.1 & 7.1 channels

AsimLeonheart3889d ago (Edited 3889d ago )

WTH?? That is just a one second clip of... something. We dont get to see any textures, lighting, FPS, details or animation. Why are you getting excited for this? Come on Nintendo fans, you need to try harder to prove that your console is also powerful.

TheGrimReaper3889d ago

Photos of the GPU die suggest that is around 1.5 times more powerful than the GPU of Xbox 360. People are saying this and not that it is weaker than PS3 & 360.
And as for the CPU: It's a tuned Wii CPU which itsef was a tuned GameCube CPU.
The comment "just 4 GameCubes duct-taped together" isn't that ridiculous ;)

Wii U IS more powerful than PS3&360. Anybody who is denying that has to be a fanboy imho.
BUT thinking Wii U will be as powerful as PS4/720 is a different topic. IF the rumored specs are true, Wii U will be way behind in terms of raw processing power.
Let's wait for E3 before jumping conclusions...

Im actually happy for nintendo fans....I hope this games is amazing so you guys finally get somthing to play

And if its good they will do bayonetta 3

WiiUsauce3889d ago

^ this type of comment is unheard-of on N4G, the Sony fanboy hangout site. lol

Deku-Johnny3889d ago (Edited 3889d ago )

An actual positive comment towards Nintendo and it's fans on N4G? Am I dead? *Bubble vote added*

Ritsujun3889d ago

Yup they should be glad that they're finally getting a non-casual game.
Aren't they sick of those Justin Bieber games? Oh god.

CalvinKlein3889d ago

lol that isnt positive tho. Its stealth trolling saying they "finally have something to play."

Kinda like the ps3 this year after all the casual crap released last year for it, finally some good games, not casual nintendo wanna be games. I hope that last of us is good because all this casual kiddy ps3 exclusives are killing me. If I wanted nintendo games Id have bought a wii or a wiiU.

nintendoland3889d ago

"finally get something to play." You lost it there

aceitman3889d ago

I can't believe that people are going by that 2second clip . That shows nothing just wait till real gameplay trailer is out to judge.

LOL_WUT3889d ago

I know right? They are grasping at straws. The monster at the end (which is only 2 seconds of video) is being praised? People it's not like we haven't seen this throughout this whole gen. ;)


StraightedgeSES3889d ago

Well if you took time to read the article the director of the game confirmed that it was real time.

ElectricKaibutsu3889d ago

Honestly, all I can tell is it's pretty dark. At least it's shiny(?)! I have no doubt the game will look good, but let's just wait until E3, shall we?

BullyMangler3889d ago (Edited 3889d ago )

Yep .. i got a ps3, but still want to play the 1st beyonetta . Whys it gotta fail on the ps3?, and why does not fail on 360? . . And why did the game devs say that the 1st boss will feel like the last? . Hek does dat mean? . . Nintendos pissing off a lot of peeps with all their exclusives and innovation. . . Or maybe just the fanboys and girls

The trailer was a joke. wii U is joke of 8th console generation.

SilentNegotiator3889d ago (Edited 3889d ago )

There's really nothing impressive about what little was shown being real-time.

Were there even ANY background/scenes being fully rendered? Plus, there really wasn't GAMEPLAY and gameplay uses a lot of processing power for programming.

They're really grasping at straws with a strawman-esqe argument.
The real issue: Is it impressive at all? No, hardly anything was fully rendered and there wasn't gameplay.
Strawman: Wowiez! It's real time!

WiiUsauce3889d ago

lol so many haters in the comments. Why do you guys hate Nintendo so much? You guys act as if Nintendo snuck into your room in the middle of the night and raped you for you guys to hold such a grudge over the company LOL.

Apex133889d ago

I wonder that very thing and I bet a lot of them started with Nintendo.

Personally, they dare to be different and their games are better built then the other 2 which is why I always will have their system. I will compliment it with one of the others as there is never much differences bar exclusives.

showtimefolks3889d ago

This argument about how powerful won't die till we know the specs for ps4 and next Xbox

I am happy Nintendo has finally joined rest of the world in HD era but as a fan of ps and Xbox I do believe both systems will be more powerful than wii-u.

3rd party support where is it? Why are so many 2013 games not showing up on wii-u?

We see a trailer and all of the sudden we know what wii-u is capable of? God of war has huge boss fights so hats doesn't mean much.

This may seem like a hate comment but it's not. Nintendo is great at making quality 1st party games but to be successful this time around hey are gonna need 3rd party support. But this wii-u isn't what wii was so everyone isn't going nuts and buying one.

That casual crowd has moved on to utter systems to mobile gaming but core market is here and for Nintendo to have any chance of competing with ms and Sony they gonna need to get their acts together and get 3rd party publishers on board. Easier said than done

HERE IS A FUN FACT, THE LAST SYSTEM FROM NINTENDO TO GET GREAT 3RD PARTY SUPPORT WAS SNES. Now let that sink in because SNES was a long long time ago.

Whether ts right or wrong but Nintendo's systems have a long history of being looked as kids or family friendly gaming systems. So M rated games automatically are set up to fail

herbs3889d ago (Edited 3889d ago )

I ran out of bubbles on the Wii U GPU discussion so I'm going to post this here. Digital Foundry and Eurogamer made it sound like they had the GPU specs nailed down 100% but they are infact making some assumptions and there are still some very big??? It's super lame when sites jump the gun like this just for hits on there site because they know the fanboys will eat it up.
This video sums it up eloquently...

Everything from the level design and the sheer scope of Beyonetta 2 makes the 1st one look like a ps2 game to be honest.

deafdani3888d ago

And you say that based on... what, exactly?

Munnkyman3888d ago

Um what footage are you lookin at lol. This game will be Greta but no real footage has come yet
