Bayonetta 2's UK release date will fall on October 24, Nintendo has announced, meaning the game will launch in Europe on the same day as the US.

The corporation has also revealed that it will ship three separate editions of the game -- one of which is exclusive to Europe.

Most basic of these three is the solus Bayonetta 2 -- a standalone copy of Platinum Games' hack-and-slash action title. This version will cost around £30, but fans can pay about £10 more for the Bayonetta 2 Double Pack, which includes a remastered Wii U edition of the original Bayonetta.

Meanwhile, a limited Bayonetta First Print Edition will bundle both games with an art book made to resemble the Hierarchy of Laguna. The leather hardback cover features an embossed logo, and the art book itself is attached to the case's housing. Only 15,000 copies are available, with some UK retailers fixing it with a £60 price tag.

A video showcasing the First Print Edition can be found above. The game's latest trailer is below.

In the US, Bayonetta 2 will cost $59.99 at retail (which includes both Bayonetta 2 and the original Bayonetta).

Fans can also purchase the games individually from the Nintendo eShop. When bought together online, Nintendo calculates a discount that lowers the price for both to $59.98.

On Thursday, Nintendo revealed another in-game costume for Bayonetta 2's eponymous heroine, this time themed on the Star Fox series. The outfit joins the previously announced Princess Peach, Samus Aran (Metroid), and Link attire announced earlier this year.
