[Spoiler alert! If you care about that kind of thing, this post reveals a Bayonetta 2 easter egg.]

If you're itching for a new Star Fox game, you're going to want to check out Bayonetta 2.

Nintendo has already revealed that Bayonetta 2 will feature outfits for the game's heroine based on Nintendo characters like Princess Peach, Samus Aran (Metroid), and Link. Earlier this month, it also revealed a Star Fox outfit, and apparently there's a much more involved tribute to Star Fox included in the game.

It's short, but as you can see in the video below posted by YouTube user Maximilian Dood, there's a section in the game that allows you fly an Arwing just as you would in a Star Fox game, including the ability the lock on to enemies and do a barrel roll.

Bayonetta 2 is a Wii U exclusive launching October 24, and it will also come packaged with a digital download of the original game. In the US, the game will cost $59.99 at retail (which includes both Bayonetta 2 and the original Bayonetta). But you can also purchase the games individually from the Nintendo eShop. When purchased together, you'll be given a discount that brings the price for both games together down to $59.98.

GameSpot may get a commission from retail offers.
