Hidemi Kamiya shares his thoughts: if it was for him, Bayonetta 3 wouldn't happen.
That sucks, but I would be more than happy to get Bayonetta 2 on Xbox and Playstation instead.
Make it for PC as well! We need more Asian games on PC.
Or you can just do what the rest of Bayonetta fans are doing and buy a Wii U. The future of the series depends on it. If you REALLY care about the game you will do it.
the series has no future on the wiiu The wonderfull 101 sold like 5000 units in its first week. Nintendo fans only buy Mario,Zelda ect.
@Hanso 5k of 30k shipped and Only advertisement was TW101 Direct for Japan.
@Hanso, Nintendo fans only buy great games that they are aware of. Wonderful 101 had next to no promotion and only 30,000 copies were shipped. It wasn't suppose to sell Million. It wasn't even supposed to sale 50,000. Only posting the number without the context paints a different picture from reality. Its an experimental franchise.
@ Hanso The series has no future on other systems because nobody is willing to go through with it. Be grateful the game is happening. Without Wii U you can't play it at all.
@ hanso, the game didn't have a future on ps3/360,because Nintendo had to save it, either buy a wiiu or get over it.
I’m sorry but this doesn’t make the least bit of sense. The reason people are mad about Bayonetta 2 being on the WiiU is because they don’t want a WiiU right guys,right?
If Bayonetta and Bayonetta 2 was released on the PC, oh man, the advantages that game could have.
It isn't going to happen! How many times does this have to be shot down before it's common knowledge, people? This game isn't a timed exclusive. It's bought and paid for entirely by Nintendo. It's a sequel that WOULD NOT EXIST without Nintendo's aid. KAMIYA HIMSELF HAS STATED THIS. If you really like the game, then you'll all suck it up and become multiplatform gamers, like the thousands of Wii owners out there that adopted PS3's and X-Boxes for the great multiplat games that didn't hit the Wii.
What the dev said was spot on. And the fact that Platinum gets to create games from scratch is a rare commodity these games, with the virus of sequelitis all over the gaming industry.
Of course Bayo 2 will sell 90k in the best scenario...for being wiiU exclusive Platinum is doing it so wrong they are working in a company with the perfect opposite kind of ideologies.
Bayonetta 2 may be the Wii U's first million seller because its the only 3rd party game being developed from the ground up for the console exclusively that people actually want. Even some of the biggest Wii U detractors I personally know they would get one just for Bayonetta 2 and Smash Brothers.
Well, I agree that they could have sold a lot more if they went multiplatform. But clearly Nintendo gave them something to seal the deal.
yeah they paid for it... why is this difficult for people to understand.
Are you people even reading the article? He doesnt say anything from a financial perspective, just from a creative one. And he has a point, look at the 3rd installments of a lot of game/movie series and you'll see the 3rd one is often the worst. That said i hope bayonetta 2 doesnt leave a cliffhanger or has a bad ending, i hope it ties everything up kind of like portal 2 did without a 3rd game.
Its n4g.no one reads the articles.
That seems a sad truth, indeed.
Games with 3 in the name often alienate fans of that game. That's not the game's fault, but more so the publisher / developer.
You can still continue the franchise after the second one, just make sure it makes sense.
Not surprising, after the Wonderful 101 and Yakuza HD both did terribly on the Wii U.
Did you read the article, he doesn't want to make a sequel because of creative reasons and the problem with too many sequels in the industry. Besides we haven't seen how the Wonderful 101 will do in the US, or how the game will do in the long run. Plus, did Sega really think a late HD version of a series that has never been on Nintendo consoles would really sell well, especially since they only sold it in Japan?
Yes I did read the article But I also read this article that exposes the creativity reason as being complete BS http://n4g.com/news/1312775... Wonderful 101 won't do much better in the US with how little it's being advertised. Sega was only expecting Yakuza HD to sell well enough to show a tangible interest in the series from WiiU owners.
I can say TY Nintendo 4 giving it hope on wii u but I don't believe it will do good on wii u heck maybe worse then the fist one y I say this is cause of audience who own wii u r people that couldn't wait to play Nintendo games such as Zelda pkmn SSBM and others in HD. Anyway I hope it sales as I would get a wii u later on when its 250$ but 4 know I'm happy getting my ps4 day one and 4 games with it AC4 watch dogs COD G and last KZ SF.
I have to make this multi-platform game.
That's because he knows Nint fanbabies won't buy Bayo2.
Don't know why you're getting disagrees but it's true just look at how the Wonderful 101 was received in Japan it flopped. ;)
That's only a week's worth of sales from Japan only, from a limited amount of stock for a game that wasn't heavily advertised. That's not a valid reason to call the game a flop; it's too early to say that, unless someone is just looking for any excuse presented to hate on the Wii U for getting a game they'd rather have on a different system.
Neither will ps or xbox fans. We didnt even cry about it ethier.
"That’s why I don’t really see a Bayonetta 3 happening in the future. I am fortunate that I am able to create many games from scratch." In one of the only job when you can use your creativity, I admit that it would suck if you work on the same game every god damn that for years. New projects are harder to make from scratch, but far for satisfing !
