Ever felt put off by the amount of button presses you need to learn in order to pull off the devastating combos in games like Devil May Cry and Ninja Gaiden? Well, Sega to rescue as during the E3 demo of the awesome looking Sega slasher Bayonetta, a company rep explained that you won’t have to be a member of the hardcore elite to get a lot of enjoyment out of the game.

Compared with the hardcore, fast-combo pulling crowd “there’s a larger demographic of casual gamers and so for people who are new to this type of game or simply aren’t at that level there’s an Easy mode and a Very Easy mode,” said the rep.

“What those allow you to do is some of the more complex combos that require some of the very complex button inputs will be easier to pull off with the same level of ease [as the hardcore gamer].

“Huge dynamic levels have been created throughout the whole game – even a casual player could get the full experience, that full level of enjoyment out of it without having to be this hardcore, maniac user.”

Bayonetta is out for high def next-gen consoles later this year.
