It’s time to try the witch’s pistol-shoes on for size, with a demo of Wii U exclusive Bayonetta 2 now available on Nintendo eShop. Nintendo revealed the demo at the end of the brand new launch trailer that’s now available on YouTube. Bayonetta 2 is developed by PlatinumGames and launches in Europe on the 24th October.
The demo kicks off the action atop a fighter jet over a city. Unleash the new Umbran Climax to pummel hordes of angelic enemies, or artfully dodge them to engage in Witch Time and experience the unique gameplay of Bayonetta 2.
European fans will have three retail editions to choose from at launch: the very limited First Print Edition with disc versions of Bayonetta 2 and the critically acclaimed Bayonetta (remastered for Wii U), plus The Art of Bayonetta 2 art book, in special 3D embossed leather-effect packaging that faithfully recreates The Hierarchy of Laguna from the game; the Special Edition which bundles disc versions of Bayonetta 2 and Bayonetta together, or the solus edition which includes just Bayonetta 2.
Bayonetta 2 launches on 24th October in Europe at retail in three editions, or on Nintendo eShop as digital versions, with the opportunity to purchase Bayonetta 2 or Bayonetta at a discounted price for those who buy either title first.
