Bayonetta 2

A few different Switch games can now be pre-loaded on the European eShops. These are Bayonetta 1 and 2, Kirby Star Allies, and Payday 2. The same option has not yet been extended to North America.

If you pre-load, you can be ready for launch. The process lets you purchase games in advance and download most of their required data. By doing so, you’ll be able to play almost right away upon release.

When the first two Bayonetta games were announced for Switch at The Game Awards, we heard that some new features are planned for Bayonetta 2. Tag Climax will now let you play locally (in addition to online), and amiibo will be supported.

Nintendo UK’s website reveals how amiibo functionality will be incorporated into Bayonetta 2. Tapping a compatible amiibo will “instantly unlock a number of Nintendo-themed costumes for Bayonetta to wear, weapons to use and more”. Costumes can still be unlocked normally as you progress through the game.

PlatinumGames originally created these Nintendo costumes for the Wii U release. You can unlock outfits based on Link, Princess Peach, Daisy, Samus, and Fox McCloud.

Conquest Entertainment, Nintendo’s polish distributor in Poland, has apparently provided a bit of additional information about Bayonetta 1 and 2 for Switch.

Both games will supposedly run at 720p. That’s regardless of whether you’re playing docked or in portable mode. Also, both run at 60 frames per second.

Conquest Entertainment also said that the team behind Bayonetta 3 is similar to that of Bayonetta 2, unsurprisingly. The company did not comment on the involvement of original Bayonetta director Hideki Kamiya or Yosuke Hashimoto, who directed the second title.


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.

When Bayonetta 1 and 2 launch on Switch in February, it seems that Japan will be the only region with a physical version of the first game. Amazon Japan shows two separate boxarts for the titles as part of the “Non-Stop Climax Edition”.

At least at the moment, Nintendo will only offer a single version of Bayonetta 2 in North America, which comes with a download code for the original Bayonetta. Europe is getting a limited edition, but even that doesn’t come with a physical version for Bayonetta 1.

Thanks to Roto for the tip.


PlatinumGames has shared new details about the new version of Bayonetta 2 for Switch.

First, local wireless cooperative play is now supported. Tag Climax, which was previously online-only, will make use of the functionality. You’ll now be able to team up with a friend online or offline.

Nintendo and PlatinumGames gave Bayonetta a whole lot of love at The Game Awards tonight. Along with Bayonetta 3, the first two titles will also be on the console.

Over in Japan, Nintendo will be releasing the Bayonetta 1 + 2 “Non-Stop Climax Edition” bundle. It includes the games, a steelbook case, 22 art cards, and three sticker sheets.

Pricing for the Bayonetta 1 + 2 “Non-Stop Climax Edition” bundle is set at 9,980 yen.


Bayonetta 1 and 2 coming to Switch

Update: Trailer added below.

Original: The Bayonetta games are coming to Switch, Nintendo and PlatinumGames have announced. They’ll be sold as a package on February 16.

In celebration of Bayonetta 2’s second anniversary in Japan, PlatinumGames is sharing new tidbits about the game. Director Yusuke Hashimoto reveals on the studio’s website that Balder was originally intended to be playable in the main story.

According to Hashimoto:

Speaking of Balder, here’s a fun fact. When we first started planning Bayonetta 2, we thought about having him as a playable character in the main story. The idea was to split the story into two parts: as Bayonetta, players would fight against angels; as Balder, they’d fight against demons. Each of these parts would show the story unfolding from its main character’s point of view, until the very end when they converge and start working together. That itself might not be new information, though… It’s an idea from five years ago, after all, so I might’ve spilled the beans about it somewhere along the line.

Head on over to PlatinumGames’ site here for some “forbidden knowledge” about the game. It includes details about where to buy super-secret items and characters, where to stock up on Halos, and Tag Climax move lists for Rodin and Balder.


The React channel posted a new video today that has teens reacting to a Nintendo game: Bayonetta 2. If you’d like to see it, you can watch the full thing below.
