Bayonetta 2 Cheats For Wii U

  1. Turn Jets Into Arwings

    In both the Prologue and Chapter 16, wearing the Star Mercenary costume will change the jets into an Arwing from Starfox. While the Prologue is purely cosmetic, Chapter 16 on other hand is fully playable and changes the way the Jetfighter Assult section is played.

  5. Start Battles in Witch-Time

    During cutscenes, you can press the trigger buttons (ZL/ZR) to make Bayonetta avoid attacks, there is no prompt or anything, but if done correctly, you will start the battle after the scene in Witch-Time.

  7. Quicker Rotation

    Quick-Time Events and prompts that require you to rotate the analog stick (such as during some boss-finishing climaxes) can be sped up if you rotate BOTH analog sticks at once. This also works when concocting items in the Witch's Recipes menu.

  8. Bewitchments

    While the Wii U doesn't have a system analogous to Achievements on Xbox 360 or Trophies on PlayStation 3, both of which the original Bayonetta appeared on and took advantage of, there is an in-game list of "Bewitchments" the player can obtain by completing certain tasks, effectively functioning the same way. There are thirty in all.
