Bayonetta 2 for Switch tentative file size

Posted on December 11, 2017 by (@NE_Brian) in News, Switch

Last week, Nintendo surprised everyone at The Game Awards with a trio of Bayonetta announcements. The original two games are bound for Switch, along with the entirely new Bayonetta 3.

Amazon Japan shows tentative the file size for Bayonetta 2. The game apparently takes up about 12.4GB, which would be a little bit smaller than Wii U’s 14GB. If this size changes, we’ll let you know.

Thanks to m_t for the tip.

    From the look at this screenshot, Bayonetta 2 on the Switch looks way much better than the Wii U original.

    • AJK

      It was already one of the best looking Wii u games and ran silky smooth

      • Logical Q

        It ran nowhere near silky smooth lol uncapped framerate that couldn’t keep 60 and would drop to the 20s frequently, spending most of it’s time in the 30s/40s

        • Indielink

          While I agree it did not hold 60, I can also say that it also never dropped below 30. It averaged around 45 frames and did still feel good with the motion blurring.

          • Logical Q

            There are performance graphs that specifically show it drop below 30fps sometimes. Youtube is a handy thing.

          • Indielink

            I doublechecked Digital Foundry’s analysis and it never goes under 30. Internet is a handy thing.

            You might wanna check again.

            I can’t believe life is this sad for PS4 owners.

          • jimmy

            Why would he be sad? I’m sure the PS4 version, oh wait

          • jimmy

            Means nothing, the game played great

          • Logical Q

            Literally the definition of the opposite

          • jimmy

            What are you playing on, toasters?

        • Aline Piroutek

          Dropping to 20fps is so Mighty No.9 ish

  • Ramon

    Wonder what’s the file size going to be for the first one. might have to buy an SD card now.

    • Tlink7

      Yeah, it is one of the few genuinely-annoying things about the Switch: internal storage/forced downloads

  • Justin McQuillen

    The image is 1280×720 pixels. I was hoping they could make it run at 1080p but maybe this is taken from portable mode?

    • Doubtful. 720p at 60fps most likely; 900p if we’re lucky.

      • Justin McQuillen

        Just seems like, if they did it for Mario Kart 8 they should be able to do it for other games that pushed the Wii U hardware.

          Bayonetta 2 graphic is on the different level with very high speed action compare to MK8. MK8 is fast, but Bayonetta 2 is way faster and graphic is more demanding. Many people agreed Bayonetta 2 is the best looking realistic game on Wii U

    Ooh, everything aboutt her is big

    So wtf at this price? Its cheaper to just buy physical copy cause the physical copy of Bayonetta 2 with 1 is $50, here if you buy it digital its 60 for both however you buy it. Imo they should just have sold bayonetta 2 for 30 as a standalone and make 1 exclusive to physical copy for $50.
