Nintendo has reconfirmed that Bayonetta 2 will be packaged with a physical disc of the original Bayonetta. On the other hand, consumers who want to purchase the digital versions of both titles will need to make two separate purchases via the Nintendo eShop. Either way, the duo will be listed for the same manufacturer’s suggested price. Bayonetta 2 launches in October for Wii U.
The physical/disc package will include two discs: one for Bayonetta 2 and a separate one for Bayonetta 1. With the digital version, consumers will need to make two separate purchases, but the price of both will equal the total for the retail combo version. So you can buy one or the other separately if you want.
Nintendo has confirmed that retail copies of Bayonetta 2 in Japan will include the original Bayonetta game disc. In the west, Bayontta 2 will come with a digital download code for the original Bayonetta nestled inside the packaging. Bayonetta 2 will be released on September 20th in Japan.
