The time has come… for a Bayonetta 2 Wii U update

bayonetta 2 e3 logoBayonetta 2 for the Wii U is finally, finally almost done, and apparently great enough that Nintendo dedicated an entire Nintendo Direct event to it this morning.

From the event, we got a closer look at the dramatic action title which touches on characters, gameplay, new modes, the storyline and the wild classic Nintendo-themed Bayonetta costumes. NIntendo also released new screens and a pair of trailers, so check them all out below.

Bayonetta 2 is set for an October 24th release.

A new Nintendo Direct video detailed some of the cool new aspects of the Bayonetta 2 game, which launches exclusively for Wii U on Oct. 24. For the first time, Nintendo announced that the cosplay options available in the original Bayonetta game will also be available in Bayonetta 2. These include Bayonetta’s wild takes on Princess Peach, Daisy, Link and Samus. But a surprise interstellar mercenary is also given the costume treatment: an outfit reminiscent of Fox McCloud, hero of the Star Fox games, was also revealed for Bayonetta 2 during this Nintendo Direct.

The Nintendo Direct also revealed Rodin as a playable character in Bayonetta 2’s multiplayer Tag Climax mode and showed off the first footage of multiplayer action.

Nintendo had previously announced that the Wii U version of the original Bayonetta game would be included with the packaged version of Bayonetta 2, available in stores at a suggested retail price of $59.99. But for the first time, Nintendo detailed the pricing plan for the downloadable versions of the games for players who opt to purchase both digitally. When buying both games separately in the Nintendo eShop on Wii U, a special discount will be applied during the purchase process, making the total for both games just $59.98.

The Nintendo Direct also provided more details about previously announced features of Bayonetta 2, including characters, storyline, combat mechanics, weapons, magic, Bayonetta’s trademark Torture Attacks and the new Umbran Climax. Viewers will learn about Muspelheim challenge rooms, how the ranking system works and how to spend their hard-fought Halos to buy items and skills or modify weapons. It’s a must-watch for anyone who wants to be ready to take down opponents in style.
