Made by platinum games enough said, both Bayonetta & Vanquish had flash but both required skill to play & beat on the harder difficulties, plus between all that flash neither suffered from the gameplay wich was top notch. In the end it all depends if you like the flashy chaos but gameplay wise these guys deliver!

Hmm... Am I the only one who wants Sam Gideon to appear in AR? xD Of course... some minor changes would have to be made.

When I saw a picture of Sasha's posterior in Game Informer, I immediately thought, "wow, that looks a lot like Bayonetta." I was both surprised and disgusted (by the fact I was so good at recognizing video game female anatomical designs), when I read this was actually the next game coming from PlatinumGames. I don't know about you guys, but I think this game has a straight up 50/50 chance of being incredibly kick*** or completely terrible. I could see how it could be Bayonetta-esque controls, but fighting other people instead of computer angels. Sounds awesome, but maybe a little too chaotic. I don't know. Plus I would really like a story mode, and it would be crazy cool if each of the main characters had their own story mode. Also, can you customize characters and stuff, or just pick those main ones? This game looks iffy.

Pre-rendered intro looks nice. Gameplay looks awful.

@ Rebornpheonix You don't get to tell the guy who created the stylish action genre that he ripped off himself. As Hideki Kamiya has stated in multiple interviews, Bayonetta is the spiritual successor to the original Devil May Cry. Capcom handed over the series to other people with disastrous consequences (namely DMC2), but Kamiya got the last laugh by perfecting DMC's formula in Bayonetta. You'll be shocked to learn that games borrow from other games all the time, just like movies borrow from movies and books from books. The important question isn't "Has this been done before?" but rather "Can this be reengineered or improved?" If you want to whine about rip offs, turn your attention to Dante's Inferno, a title that blatantly stole God of War's gameplay without improving it a bit, just to ruin a great piece of literature.

@Rovelius Well then that's you.. also, you twisted what I said in an attempt to win an argument. You may want to read my first comment, anything that they've even put their name on, tends to suck... as in they've had bad taste in the past what? 5-10 years? And for Bayonetta, that game only did so well because of the sex appeal and the rip off of the games before it... If you don't know which it ripped off, I suggest you play more games.

@Rebornpheonix Well, I disagree. There was indeed a lot of flash in these games but they sure did not lack any substance. Both were filled with good gameplay, originality through and through, style and epicness. What more can you ask from a game? It's meant to be fun, entertaining and different. Bayonetta and Vanquish were both that and more. If you didn't like them, that's all right. But you can't say they "suck" just because YOU did not like PlatinumGames' efforts - they are one of the last devs around who put so much effort in their games and you should at least respect that. Sega had no influence whatsoever on these games, btw, they only published them. Don't you find it weird how these "All flash, no substance" games both ended up GOTY nominees on most websites? It kinda proves something...

You guys need to give this game more of a chance. There are many ways that this could turn out to be badass. Sure, mass violence is not always required, and can detract from the experience. But when it's done right, it is not a bad thing. And seriously, who doesn't want to control a cyborg with a bull skeleton for its head?

The standard of Japanese games has fell quite sufficiently in the past few years, there's no denying that. Most look unimpressive and pretty same-old, same-old. This game, for example, could have been made in 2005.

@Rovelius Yes. They were flashy but lacked substance... that's kind of what Sega does now.

It doesn't look like much but based on their previous releases (which are awesome) I think I'll give them the benefit of the doubt.

Well, this game seems so random, but it's probably just another hack'n slasher, so I don't think anything big is going to come of it (like for example: Devil may cry franchise).

Looks like interesting fun.When it fleshes out a hell of alot more.People thought Vanquish was just another cover shooter, and look at how much of a blast it is.

Lol, thought it was a trailer for MGRising at first; the guy's suit with the helmet open looked like Raiden's, especially considering the swords.

I was kind of interested until the part where it said "SEGA". It seems anything you see Sega involved with anymore always seems to suck.

I'm a huge fan of Platinum Games so this is going to be a must buy for me. I'm especially looking forward to the sound track, the soundtrack was so good in Mad World.
