Ellie Gibson reports:
''Comparisons between the character of Bayonetta and Devil May Cry's Dante are inevitable. For starters, both were created by Clover Studio veteran Hideki Kamiya. Both are the stars of fast-paced action shooters with distinct visual styles. Both use dual pistols and fast-paced melee attacks to take out endless waves of enemies. But only one can beat up people with their hair.
For those who aren't familiar, Bayonetta is the eponymous heroine of a new title from Platinum Games. The studio was established by former Clover developers including Kamiya, who also worked on the original Viewtiful Joe and Okami. In other words, he's got experience creating games with a unique look and feel. Judging by the demo we're being shown, Bayonetta will be no exception.
The title character certainly has style. Bayonetta is a witch, we're told. She's dressed in skin-tight black leather, with a waist so tiny and a walk so wiggly she makes Jessica Rabbit look like Hattie Jacques. She also sports naughty secretary glasses and a long, glossy ponytail that will come in handy later.''
