Before its time to get this review underway, can you please get over this being a Wii U exclusive? While many Bayonetta fans want to believe otherwise, the simple truth is that without Nintendo Bayonetta 2 would not exist.
After SEGA got cold feet about publishing the game, Platinum studios were left with a near finished game that no one dared fund. Luckily for everyone, Nintendo saw the game’s potential. On paper, this is a decision that made both sense and no sense in equal measure. With regards to the sense part, Bayonetta 2 filled a gap in the Wii U library and was also an exclusive Nintendo could score on the cheap. With regards to the nonsensical part, it is perhaps the most un-Nintendo game you could have imagined, oozing with over the top violence, bad language and explicit sexual imagery.
