Bayonetta 1

There are a few differences in the Wii U version of Bayonetta 1 compared to the original PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 games. There’s off-TV play and touchscreen support on the GamePad. A few Nintendo costumes are also included. As it turns out, PlatinumGames also made a change to Jeanne’s model.

As explained by the studio’s JP Kellams:


Three different Bayonetta 2 releases are planned for Europe. There’s the Special Edition, First Print Edition, and solus edition.

The former two releases will include the first Bayonetta. However, the same can’t be said for the solus edition. If you’re interested in Bayonetta 1, you’ll need to purchase either the Special Edition (£44.99) or First Print Edition (£59.99).

Nintendo is handling things much differently in North America. Just one simple release is planned for retail, and it includes both Bayonetta games.


A new Bayonetta 2 interview has come online over at CVG. The site spoke with director Yusuke Hashimoto, who talked about the decision to make a sequel, how Nintendo provided input, interest in continuing the series, and quite a bit more.
