Watch The Bullets Fly In The English Dubbed Bayonetta: Bloody Fate Trailer
This fall will see the release of the sequel to Platinum Games' over the top action game, Bayonetta, on the Wii U. Now it seems that the West will be receiving a second way to enjoy some crazy action this fall in the form of Bayonetta: Bloody Fate.
The feature-length anime film will receive an English dub in America, and now has a trailer showcasing some of the action to expect (which is below). The anime, led by Afro Samurai director Fuminori Kizaki and produced by animation studio Gonzo, seems to keep the spirit of the original game.

The trailer begins with Bayonetta praying in a church, before revealing her usual garb and taking out a few angels. Her rival Jeanne and her arms dealer Rodin also make appearances, all showcasing some action to techno-filled tunes.
Released in Japan last year, the anime follows Bayonetta through the events of the first game, as she battles angels to unravel the mysteries of her past. Hellena Taylor will reprise her role as Bayonetta for the English dub, with much of the game's cast reprising their roles.
I never had the chance to check out the Japanese version of Bloody Fate, so I will have to check it out when it releases Stateside. I enjoyed the voice work in the original Bayonetta, so I may liked the dubbed version of this anime. It seems like it will have the same crazy, over the top action that the original game had, which is the main draw for me. I am also waiting for Bayonetta 2 to land on the Wii U, so fall just got more busy.
Bayonetta: Bloody Fate will release in North America on October 21 in a Blu-ray/DVD combo pack. The release of the anime will be just on time for the release of the sequel, Bayonetta 2, on the Wii U.
