After earlier reports circulated that Hideki Kamiya wanted to port the original Bayonetta to the Wii U, Kamiya has now said that it would be doable before the release of Bayonetta 2. Ultimately, it’s up to Nintendo to decide whether or not to port the game over to the system. Are there any upsides for Nintendo if they do decide to port the original Bayonetta to the Wii U?
We can. RT
@lightningboltac If Nintendo decided to release Bayo1 on WiiU, will u be able to port it in time before Bayo2′s release? Or later
Hideki Kamiya, director of the original Bayonetta, wants the game to be released on the Wii U. When asked about it, he said that while they really want to release the game for the platform, ultimately the decision is up to Nintendo. Platinum Games is currently developing Bayonetta 2 for the Wii U and no release date has been announced. As a Wii U owner, would you like to see the original Bayonetta released on the system as a lead up to Bayonetta 2′s launch?
“As I’ve told u before, we want to release Bayo1 for WiiU, but that’s what Ninty decides. So ask Ninty.” – Hideki Kamiya
Platinum Games designer Hideki Kamiya is getting rather ticked off with people asking whether Bayonetta 2 is still exclusive to Wii U. The problem arose when Nintendo released its 2013-2014 software line up in a Youtube video, but neglected to show the long-awaited Bayonetta 2. This has led some people on the internet to question whether the game is still exclusive to Nintendo latest home console, Wii U.
F*CK OFF ALL EXCLUSIVE IDIOTS
Thanks to those that sent this in.
In a move that has confused many, Nintendo has removed the long-awaited Bayonetta 2 from its 2013-2014 Wii U exclusives trailer. Bayonetta 2 had featured on the previous trailer, but it’s noticeably absent on the current one. Whether we should be worried that the game has slipped remains to be seen, but it’s certainly odd that it’s not been featured.
A NeoGAF user has asked Sega of America whether the original Bayonetta will be ported to Wii U. A customer support representative replied by saying Bayonetta and its sequel are practically the same game. According to the rep, what differentiates Bayonetta 2 from its predecessor are its two-player mode, Bayonetta’s new hairdo and costume. Read what the rep had to say below:
The second Bayonetta as you well know is being published by Nintendo exclusively for the WiiU. Both games have been developed by Platinum games. That said, the decision on which version to purchase is really up to you. The games are exactly the same except the WiiU version has a two player mode and the Bayonetta character has different hair and her costume is different.
If those additional features are not important to you, then by all means don’t hesitate to pick up the PS3 or Xbox version.
Good Luck and we hope you enjoy whatever version you decide on.
Platinum Games’ designer Hideki Kamiya has been up to all sorts of mischief recently – he revealed earlier that a little bit of friendly office rivalry between The Wonderful 101 and Bayonetta 2 boosts the games’ development – and today he’s been politely frank on Twitter to those fans asking if Bayonetta 2 or The Wonderful 101 will ever be released out-with Nintendo’s home console and land on the PlayStation 3. Here’s what he reiterated, on behalf of JP Kellams original tweets back in February, to those who continued to question Platinum on whether the games would make an appearance on the Sony console:
“REPEAT: We are a developer. Nintendo are the ones kind enough to fund and publish our W101 and Bayo 2 projects. (1/2)
“So if Nintendo says “We are publishing Bayo 2 on PS3/360.” Then it will happen. So please go ask them, not us. (2/2)
“It’s supposed to mean what it says. If you want a PS3 version ask Nintendo. You might also want to ask for PS3 Zelda. <- by JP”
My horse is bigger than your horse – that’s the kind of friendly rivalry you’ll see at the Platinum Games office with development on two exclusive Wii U titles; The Wonderful 101 and Bayonetta 2. The current director of The Wonderful 101 – due out in Europe August 23 and North America September 15 – has revealed in an interview with Nintendo Everything that the friendly rivalry between both teams has resulted in more driven, explosive development. Hideki Kamiya says he can look over his desk, sneak a peek at the Bayonetta 2 development and then begin to formulate a plan to produce bigger, better and bolder action scenes. We’re hoping the light-hearted rivalry will prove to be a winning formula for these two highly anticipated titles.
Earlier this week, Nintendo released the Bayonetta 2 E3 trailer, in which Bayonetta’s new hairstyle was shown for the first time. Siliconera had the chance to ask the game’s producer, Yusuke Hashimoto, why Bayonetta’s hair was changed for the upcoming sequel. Hashimoto explained that Bayonetta isn’t the type of character with a dull personality, and that she enjoys changing her style, fashion sense and costumes in order to preserve her audacious figure. Bayonetta 2 will be released exclusively for Wii U in 2014.
“We think of it less as cutting her hair. Her personality is the type that would not want to remain stagnant. She would want to change her style, taste in fashion, and her costumes. Down the line in the series, she may make further changes to her appearance.”
At E3 today, Nintendo announced that Bayonetta 2 will feature a stand-alone two-player mode. As of now, not much else is known regarding the game’s multiplayer mode. Earlier today, Nintendo released the Bayonetta 2 E3 trailer, which revealed Bayonetta’s new hairstyle and costume. Bayonetta 2 is being developed by Platinum Games, and it’s scheduled to launch exclusively for Wii U in 2014.
Atsushi Inaba, the Executive Creative Producer at the renowned development studio Platinum Games, has participated in a Wii U developer direct which is dedicated to the eagerly awaited Bayonetta 2. Inaba explains that his goal from the outset was to create the ultimate third person action game. Bayonetta 2 is exclusive to Wii U and is due for release next year.
