Today Nintendo held a special Nintendo Direct presentation aimed at Platinum Games’ upcoming title, Bayonetta 2. During the presentation, we were able to get a little bit of information about the game.
Previously Nintendo announced that the Wii U version of the original Bayonetta would feature costumes for Bayonetta based on famous Nintendo characters. This includes Princess Peach, Daisy, Link, and Samus. Now these costumes will also be available in Bayonetta 2, and will give special abilities depending on the costume. Nintendo also announced another costume during the presentation: Fox McCloud, star of the Star Fox series.
Platinum also gave details on Bayonetta 2’s multiplayer mode, titled Tag Climax. This mode has six levels, and multiple difficulties. Players are able to increase difficulty by betting halos, the game’s currency. In Tag Climax, players are able to play as Jeanne and Rodin, and are able to use the halos earned in the single-player campaign.
Nintendo has mentioned before that gamers who purchase Bayonetta 2 on disk will also receive a copy of the original Bayonetta. This will run at $59.99. But now Nintendo has detailed how digital buyers can get the same deal. When purchasing both games separately on the Nintendo eShop on Wii U, a special minor discount is applied, coming out to $59.98.
The Direct presentation also gave details on other features of the game, such as characters, plot, combat, weapons, magic, Bayonetta’s trademark Torture Attacks, and the Umbran Climax. You can check out the Direct Presentation below.
