On Twitter, one fan messaged Platinum Games’ Hideki Kamiya regarding an eShop release of the original Bayonetta. Kamiya responded by saying that such a decision would be up to SEGA/Nintendo.
It’s up to Sega or Ninty. RT @linkyshink: PG should consider a technically proficient eShop release of Bayonetta 1 on Wii U.

Some Nintendo fans may not have had the chance to play the original Bayonetta, so bringing the first title to the eShop could be a smart move.
Thanks to Jake for the tip.
