Bayonetta 2 on the Nintendo Switch has outperformed the original release of the game which made its debut on the Wii U. The Nintendo switch version of Bayonetta 2 has sold almost 400,000 units while the Wii U version sold below 300,000 in the same time period.
Bayonetta 2 is always been one of the best games out there. Even on its tv series.
That’s good but it’s still not enough for a game of that calibre.
I don’t know if Nintendo ever announced any sales figures, but they likely were satisfied with the results on Wii U since they paying for the 3rd game,
Switch version is pretty much 1 on 1 port from Wii U. Ubisoft estimated Wii U port job was about 1 million dollars.
I’m not too sure how much Nintendo gets per unit sold, but if it was 20$/sale, with these estimates would mean that they are already making their money back.
It’s not how much money that it makes that I’m concerned about. I’m sure Nintendo is happy with what it made. My point is that it is such a fantastic game that more people should be picking it up and playing it.
I think it is a fantastic game, but I can see why some people would not.
It’s not wise to be a Negative Nancy, P Edwards. Think positive for a change. If Bayonetta 2 for the Switch outsells the Wii U original, you should appreciate Nintendo and Platinum Games. End of story.
||Excellent, notify me once you release the Trilogy Edition in the future my new Supreme Lord…||
And Metroid prime trilogy HD, i want this one ASAP!!!
||It will be released, even if it is just the original…||
It has to be the original trilogy!!!
More importantly, I hope it sells at least a million copies….
It’s going to be a crime against god if it doesn’t, Ironically.
Bayo 2 is one of my favorite games of all time, easily in my top 5. I can’t believe such a fantastic game like it has that low of sales. Sure, 400,000 isn’t bad per se, but man I wish it could break a million. The dev team really put their heart into it and you can tell.
Hack n Slash action games just aren’t as big as they used to be during the God of War and Devil May Cry years. So I guess I shouldn’t be so surprised. Open world and shooters are what’s hot now.
Anyway, this is still good news regardless. I’m so excited for Bayonetta 3! I hope we get a glimpse of it at E3. Even if it’s just a little tease that shows Bayonetta’s new design or something (assuming she gets a new design). I’m also curious who’s directing it.
Duh? Larger install base, great game. Shocked it took this long.
Remember… quality comes first.
