Wii U eShop

Update (9/11): As expected, Nintendo has confirmed that the same date applies to North America. No reason has been provided for Bayonetta 1 and 2’s removal.


Original (9/10): Bayonetta 1 and 2 are both leaving the Wii U eShop, Nintendo has announced. They will no longer be available after September 19. Notices have been provided officially in Europe and Japan, and while there isn’t any news specifically for North America just yet, it’s expected to have an effect stateside as well.

If you own Bayonetta 1 and 2 on Wii U currently, there won’t be any issues going forward. Both titles can still be re-downloaded after the de-listing goes live.

Those who are interested in Bayonetta 1 and 2 will still be able to purchase the games on the Switch eShop.
