Isao Negishi, who is the director of the original Bayonetta Wii U port, has explained the new abilities Bayonetta gains when wearing classic Nintendo outfits. If Bayonetta wears the Peach outfit then she can summon the mighty Bowser who can “pummel enemies with punches and kicks,” and give a well-timed stomp attack. When Bayonetta dons the Link costume she can use the Master Sword which is created by Wicked Weaves which can split an enemy in half. Finally, if Bayonetta wears the Samus costume she can lift her visor up or down in cutscenes. Both games come bundled together this October.
“I think you can see why I’m not hesitant to call this Wii U port a “Special Editon. This actually isn’t everything new the game has to offer.”
