I'm tempted to watch this but at the same time I really want to hold off on spoiling too much.

A whole direct for Bayonetta 2? What could they show that they haven't already. I've seen enough to warrant a purchase, but maybe this will be the start of a big advertising campaign. This game is gonna need it.

Nice but a part of me says don't watch it...cause it might reveal too much about the game...btu then again they could just be showing what they've already shown. *might watch* :P

Can they hurry up and announce a western release date for Fatal Frame?

I lost interest in Bayonetta 2 when I found long ago Kamiya wasn't directing it. Still, I hope it's good so my interest picks up again.

Hey guys, I just fixed the info in both the title. I'll talk to a mod and see if we can still use this thread once the video comes up.

Oh I'll be sure to be revited to the screen. Nothing gets me more enthused for a game than hearing a developer in a suit speaking a language I don't understand about it.

Commence!

Alright, I just finished talking with char. He approves the idea of this thread being the focus of all discussion in regards to Bayonetta 2 and this Direct.

Awesome I'll be home by then, I wonder if anything new will be shown or will it just be approx 30 mins of more of the same.

Really want this game to sell more than 5 copies.

I added the link to the EU stream location for when that starts. I'll get the NA link when that approaches.

Wow, Iwata is not making many appearances in these, I've noticed. He hardly appeared in Mario Kart 8's Direct.

This seems aimed at those who have never played Bayonetta.

It makes a bit of sense, considering those who only had a Wii never played Bayonetta, so...

Day 1 purchase for me. I hope more costumes get revealed.

Oh yeah, totally. I mean, not only Wii owners, but nobody has played Bayonetta. Might as well make as many people aware of it.

Looks awesome. I see no reason for it not to sell. A game that good should sell over 1 million easily.

Now if only Nintendo would do some marketing...

Seeing that Fox costume makes me hope that Nintendo would bring in Platinum to help develop Star Fox. They mentioned bringing in other studios to help get it out by next year, and platinum is awesome!.

Great direct, definitely made for those that haven't played the game yet though. Peach costume is amazing.

Hmmmm ok..... game looks really really fun. :O Story looks just ok but who cares. lol

Even though of all Nintendo outfits, Fox looks the best, I think Krystal would a better choice but whatever I won't use those outfits anyway. :P

I was already sold on getting this the moment I heard it was coming to the Wii U... but damn, watching these videos makes me want it real bad. And the game coming with the original Bayonetta is just icing on the cake. I'm not sure what I should do when I get this, jump right in to Bayonetta 2, or replay the original fire (which I no longer have and haven't for some time).

What I loved about the first is that it was very challenging. And if it wasn't challenging just to get through it was challenging in obtaining the best ratings trophies for each stages, which made it very replayable. What I loved about the increased difficulty too was it wasn't just a lazy difficulty like say increasing enemy damage and weaker player attacks, they actually changed up the enemies you encountered through the game so it wasn't entirely a repeat experience. But, even a challenging game isn't such a bad thing when you have responsive and solid combat, which Bayonetta did exceptionally well. If the second game has everything I loved about the first I'll be well satisfied.

I'm looking forward to some costume unlocks. I'm especially curious about Nintendo costumes... however, I'm kind of curious if this content will be locked out to Amiibo support, and they really didn't say that, but I've a feeling they will. Tag Climax seems like a cool feature, I just hope that players can play as same characters, like if two players wanna play the same character then it's allowed. I'm glad it's confirmed too that the physical retail copy will come with both games, as I was worried that might be a digital option only.

I remember the first game people were critical of it saying that story was non-existent, or that it was cheesy and over the top. Normally that would be a valid criticism but IMO that's a strength of this, as Platinum seems to own it when they do it. And it's rather inconsequential because the game is about the combat, which they mastered with it's challenge, it's replay value, is solid mechanics.

I hope this game does really well, as I'd love to see a stronger partnership between Platinum and Nintendo blossom. Hopefully somewhere in that future involves a Vanquish sequel.

I wanted to make a thread about this, but I'm not that bored, so here goes.

Free Bayonetta with Bayonetta 2 is a US-only promotion

"A free copy of the original Bayonetta will not be included in the solus edition of Bayonetta 2 in the UK and Europe, Nintendo has clarified. Instead, the offer will be limited to the US."

"Confirmation follows confusion overnight following the announcement of Bayonetta 2's Special Edition (£44.99) and First Print Edition (£59.99), which both include a physical disc-based copy of the original game alongside Bayonetta 2, and the solus edition "which includes just Bayonetta 2".

Making sure non-US peasants stay peasants.
