Bayonetta 2

Bayonetta 1 and 2 are the latest big games for Switch with video capture enabled on day one. Thanks to the feature, you can record 30-second gameplay clips.

There are just a couple of exceptions. When the songs “Fly Me to the Moon” and “Moon River” are playing, video capture is disabled. However, if you turn off the background music during these segments, the functionality can be used. There’s likely an issue with copyrights pertaining to these two songs.

By the way, in both Bayonetta 1 and 2, you can practice combos when the game is loading. By pressing the minus button once loading is finished, you can keep going in practice mode.

The latest UK sales were reported earlier today. Following up on the initial news, we have some extra tidbits about FIFA 18 and Bayonetta 2 on Switch.

Regarding FIFA 18, sales saw a massive spike of 494% with physical sales. The reason? A heavy price cut. FIFA 18 was reduced to under £30 in the UK.

As for Bayonetta 2, we’re hearing that the game sold fewer physical copies at launch compared to Wii U. While it did place higher at #5 this week, it did so with a lower amount of units sold. However, one thing to note is that digital sales from the eShop are not included.

Here’s something pretty neat in Bayonetta 2 on Switch. When you use certain amiibo, the message above appears, which looks like a clear reference to Bayonetta’s appearance in Smash Bros for Wii U/3DS. It is apparently not in the original Wii U version.

The first thought people are having is that the message could be teasing an appearance of Rodin in an upcoming Smash Bros. title. That’s probably looking too much into what’s just an Easter egg, but it can be fun to speculate.

Ahead of their release on Friday, Nintendo has published a launch trailer for Bayonetta 1 and 2 on Switch. Have a look at the video below.

In a series of messages posted on Twitter, PlatinumGames’ Hideki Kamiya spoke about Bayonetta and Nintendo’s involvement. He was a director on the first game, contributed to the second title, and may have some involvement with the third entry.

Kamiya recalled how, originally, Bayonetta 2 was considered for multiple platforms when it was in development as part of a collaboration with SEGA. However, the game was put on hold because of “circumstances” at the company. After Nintendo stepped in, PlatinumGames was able to finish development, and the rights are with the Big N and SEGA. Nintendo actually allowed the Japanese voice track created for the Wii U version of Bayonetta to be included in the PC version.
