New Bayonetta “information” this week

Monday, 2nd August 2010 08:21 GMT By Johnny Cullen


Platinum said over-night that it’s about to release new “information” on pseud-loved fighter Bayonetta, bringing hope of a sequel announcement.

Director Yusuke Hashimoto dropped the following:

“Good morning. It looks like we’ll be able to share new information related to Bayonetta this week. Look forward to it,” he tweeted earlier.

This, in our book, is very great fucking news: the game, which released back in January in the west after an October 2009 launch in Japan for PS3 and 360, was absolutely awesome.

Since then, creator Hideki Kamiya and Sega West boss Mike Hayes have said they’d like to see a sequel, with Kamiya saying it could be a spin-off.

At the last count, Bayonetta has sold 1.1 million units.

Thanks, Andriasang.

    do not want. The 1st one sucked.
    but … what the hell… An announcement for an announcement. Can they just shut up and do it already?

    it’s probably an artbook or something.. TGS is in September, doesn’t make sense to announce a new game now. besides it’s a bit too early.

    “Id like Kamiya to do another survival horror, Bayonetta doesnt need a sequel really.”

    Everything game he create, was unbelievable.
    RE2 was my favorite survival horror, Devil may cry 1 was
    my best Action.

    I enjoyed Bayonetta and would like to see two things.
    1) A sequel
    2) Appearance in a fighting game. Mv3 is impossible but I think that she fits in the over-the-top universe Kamiya created.
    3) Perhaps a DMC/Bayonetta crossover is in order?

    Obvious troll is obvious. Calling ‘tweeters’ twats is just plain stupid. Also it doesnt matter what version he played his opinion is his opinion. I played it on Xbox and I thought it was way to Japanese for me. Also cut the homophobia calling someone gay over the internet shows how retarded you are

    @16 this trolling thing seems to be the norm these days doesnt it, does it have a good hourly rate? pension plan? insurance?

    @16 @17 It’s not trolling. It’s just stupidity.

    Trolling suggests a deliberate intent to get some sort of reaction out of a person or the community as a whole.

    Stupidity tends to suggest that the person simply doesn’t know better.

    I’m leaning towards the later here.

    @18 i dont see the difference, since its about video games, going out of your way to try and get on peoples nerves over it? c’mon they aernt better than the “later” you describe.

    @19 That’s my point. They’re not “going out of their way to get on people’s nerves”. They’re not even thinking about other people’s reactions when they do it.

    They’re completely oblivious to how obnoxious their perchance for insulting things blindly is. A troll is someone who attacks and insults things with the *deliberate* intent of getting an emotional reactions out of people.

    @20 so whats theevilaries then? it seems to go out of its way than most here, i say “it” because the account seems more like a parasite than a person

    @21 He’s the latter. But he’s nowhere near as bad as LOLShock94. TEA has his moments of clarity, and his fanboyism is slowly fading day by day.

    Soon, the force will be strong with him. But I fear LOLShock94 is lost to the dark side… forever.

    @23 i’ve read this “hes nowhere near as bad” a few times, they are all as bad as one another, i’ve yet to read a decent or amusing post from either of them yet some people defend that europe hating scrote above the others.

    what, LOLShock? what did he do to warrant such a comparison, a joke about twatter?

    @24 He spits vitriol in almost every post he’s in. Most of it is just blind and ignorant hate.

    I didn’t notice. I think they weren’t even around until like 2 weeks ago.

    I adored Bayonetta. Tongue in cheek, confident, stylish, sassy, deep and spectacular. Not to mention the abundance of geek references to be enjoyed in it. A genuine smile-on-your-face-whilst-you-play-it game!

    If Platinum Games / Sega are going to offer more of that then bring it on, I say.

    yous are arguing over a joke about twitter but what i said about the ps3 being shit is true

    PS3 leading platform this time please. GoW3 spoiled me with it’s graphics.
    Everything about Bayonetta is fine, except for graphics are pathetic on both platforms, and on PS3 there are also performance issues, shame on PG.

    Im not arguing over the Twitter thing im just pointing at that you completely disregard his opinion and call him ‘gay’ because of it. Grow up.

    As long as they give everyone the options of Auto Play for players like me, and Extreme Difficulty for those of you out there who like that kind of Challenge, I will buy the Second One…

    Personally I enjoyed the ride of the game on Easy for myself, and had friends who ramped it up to harder difficulties and they liked it as well….

    It’ll be the PC version of Bayonetta.

    Remember this picture^^ Yep, that’s Hideki Kamiya playing the PC version via Nvidia 3D Vision & 360 controller. And his Tweet about it:
