Sometimes, a game’s official Nintendo page will provide more details, including info that we didn’t know previously. An example of this is Nintendo UK’s page for Bayonetta 2. While the game’s Tag Climax mode was already known, the page revealed that you will be able to play locally in this version. Local multiplayer was not supported in the Wii U version of Bayonetta 2. As for amiibo, you will be able to use them to “unlock a number of Nintendo-themed costumes for Bayonetta to wear, weapons to use and more”. The Wii U version of the game also had amiibo unlocks, including costumes, but this is the first time we’re hearing about this feature in the Switch version. You will still be able to unlock the costumes normally as you progress through the game.
Join forces with a friend – whether across the room or across the world – to fight through waves of enemies in the local and online multiplayer Tag Climax mode***. Choose from a range of powerful characters, and give angels and demons a beating that’s as brutal as it is beautiful.
By tapping in compatible amiibo (sold separately), you can instantly unlock a number of Nintendo-themed costumes**** for Bayonetta to wear, weapons to use and more!
