Platinum director Hideki Kamiya doesn’t want you to enjoy Bayonetta. He wants you to be wounded by it.
“With Bayonetta, we would hate for someone to think it is a heartwarming tale and then buy the game to discover it is really a sadistically hard game,” said the developer in this blog post.
Further, Kamiya promised the game is replete with “hardcore battle action.”
He developed Devil May Cry, so he probably knows what he’s talking about.
Bayonetta features a sexy witch going beserk with her hair “do”. It’s out later this year for 360 and PS3.
