Sega has been making waves this week. After a large-scale purchase of Atlus parent company Index Corporation, they have now announced an official, Sega and Gonzo-produced anime movie version of Bayonetta, called Bayonetta: Bloody Fate. Although the announcement has been rumored for some time and was only officially made late yesterday, the movie already has a fully dedicated Japanese website, as well as its own trailer. The movie will be directed by Fuminori Kizaki and is set for release on November 23rd.
The sequel to Bayonetta was shown at this year’s E3 and will be released as a Wii U exclusive. In addition to the new installment of Bayonetta, Hideki Kamiya, designer at Platinum Games, the company that develops Bayonetta, has said he would like to see the first game released on Wii U as well. No official release date has been set for Bayonetta 2, but fans of the series can expect the game on Wii U in 2014.
