Bayonetta 2 out tomorrow
Sequel jumps to Wii U as an exclusive
PlatinumGames and Nintendo have confirmed that Bayonetta 2 will be launching exclusively for the Wii U console tomorow, October 24, 2014.
For the first time in the series, players who want to take on battles with a friend can team up with another player in Tag Climax. In this online co-op mode, players destroy legions of enemies together, playing as a variety of characters from the game. As players journey through the main story mode, they will unlock Verse Cards that can be used to unlock additional stages in Tag Climax.
Anyone who purchases Bayonetta 2 in retail stores will also get the original Bayonetta game at no additional cost, with an additional disc right in the box. When buying the digital version of either game in the Nintendo eShop on Wii U, an automatic discount will be applied to the purchase of the other game.
Both the original Bayonetta and Bayonetta 2 games include in-game costumes for Nintendo fans. Bayonetta can wear exclusive costumes modeled after characters such as Princess Peach, Samus Aran and Link. When wearing these costumes, the game changes. For example, while wearing the Princess Peach costume, Bayonetta summons Bowser’s hands and feet instead of infernal demons. While dressed as Link, you can listen for a familiar chime after Bayonetta solves a puzzle.
The original Bayonetta was released on Xbox 360 and PS3.
