Watch Today's Bayonetta 2 Nintendo Direct Right Here

[UPDATE] It's over!


[UPDATE] It's over! And today's big reveal: A Star Fox-themed costume for the game. Check it out.

The original story is below.

Today's Bayonetta 2 Nintendo Direct briefing kicks off at 3 PM PDT / 6 PM EDT, and you can watch the entire presentation right here in this post. "New details" for the Wii U game are expected to be divulged during the broadcast, said to last around a half-hour, but that's all we know right now.

Bayonetta 2 is a Wii U exclusive, unlike the 2010 original, which was released on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. That game's developer, Platinum Games, is also behind Bayonetta 2.

The original Bayonetta is included with Bayonetta 2 physical and digital copies at no extra cost. Earlier this week, Nintendo announced Bayonetta 2's release date: October 24

Bayonetta 2 includes a number of features not found in the original, including a new snake transformation that lets Bayonetta move better in underwater passages. In addition, we learned at E3 in June that Bayonetta 2 will include mechs.

And now I have a reason to buy a Wii U.  Awesome!  It looked even better than the first game and yet the graphics look on par with the 360/PS3 versions so that is awesome as well.

So so far... for those who've just tuned in... it's a Bayonetta game... like the first, some added combo's but pretty much everything you're expecting it to be.

Oh and her stance is funny...

It's amazing. As powerful the Xbox One and the PS4 are over the Wii U...the Wii U looks better and better everyday, that is why I am probably going to buy a Wii U.  MS and Sony have no problem digging their own graves I guess.PC+Wii U = my gaming rigs for next gen.

I will buy my 8yo nephew a copy. I'm buying digitally off the eShop for my copy, but I also want a booklet so I'll buy him the disc and keep the box for myself. He needs to grow some chest hair anyway.

Fun fact: Bayonetta is less sexist than Metroid: Other M.

@Mayleene Also note how Bayonetta 2 comes with Bayonetta 1 on disc. (Believe both games are on the same disc) So that gives me a reason to complete 1 again first.

Also there's something called Tag-climax which makes my mind go places very much not gaming related. Huzzah Innuendos!
