Platinum Games’ cult hit Bayonetta remains one of the most celebrated third-party titles of the current generation of consoles. Released in January 2010 on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, the game pits you in the boots of the eponymous, gun-wielding witch as she stylishly blasts her way through heavenly adversaries across a series of lush locations.
Fans have been clamouring for a sequel since launch, and while creator Hideki Kamiya never ruled out the possibility of a follow-up, publisher SEGA remained reluctant to commit to a new game. Nonetheless, fans remained optimistic over the possibility of a sequel.
Today, it was finally confirmed that Bayonetta 2 is in development, though unfortunately for PS3 and 360 owners, the sultry action sequel will be exclusive to Nintendo’s Wii U console, which hits retail shelves in the U.S. and U.K. this November.
Sadly the chances of the game making the transition to Sony and Microsoft’s console looks very slim, since Bayonetta 2 will be published by Nintendo, which is about exclusive as you can get. Think Demon’s Souls or Alan Wake, which were published by Sony and Microsoft, respectively, as PS3 and 360 exclusives.
Are you disappointed in the news that Bayonetta 2 is a Wii U exclusive? Or aren’t you fussed? Perhaps you are planning on getting a Wii U? Let us know in the comments section below.
