Bayonetta 1 and Bayonetta 2 are rather large games, as some may have expected.

Bayonetta 2 requires 14.6GB if you plan on picking up the digital version. And together, Bayonetta 1 and Bayonetta 2 take up 32.2GB of space.

Get your hard drives ready!


We’ve posted a ton of footage from Bayonetta 2 already, but not so much from the original game. You’ll find a little bit of additional gameplay below:

There is plenty of news to come for both Bayonetta and Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker, based on new teases from Nintendo of Canada’s Matt Ryan.

First, on the topic of Bayonetta 1, Ryan mentioned that there are “some other surprises” that haven’t been revealed.

Ryan told Nintendo Enthusiast:

Bayonetta Wii U

This past week, Nintendo clarified to us how it intends to offer the first Bayonetta to Bayonetta 2 buyers in North America.

Ultimately, it’s quite simple. Nintendo has confirmed that Bayonetta will be included with the physical release as a separate disc. Meanwhile, those who purchase Bayonetta 2 on the eShop will still get Bayonetta 1 at no additional cost.

The situation is fairly similar in Europe. You can find information about Bayonetta 1/2 for PAL territories here.

Seems like this is purely a cosmetic change. When wearing the Daisy costume, Bayonetta acts very much like she does when wearing the Peach outfit.

Nintendo costumes in Bayonetta

PlatinumGames has revealed three Nintendo costumes for Bayonetta 1: Link, Samus, and Peach. At least one more original outfit will be included in the game based on the screenshot above.

Thanks to some detective work done by the folks on NeoGAF, Bayonetta may also feature a Daisy costume. The emblem on the right side of the image seems to match up well with the character’s icon associated with Daisy, posted below:


Not confirmed by any means, but it’s a good sign.


The latest post over on the Platinum Games blog comes from the concept artist responsible for the designs of Bayonetta and Jeanne in Bayonetta and Bayonetta 2, Mari Shimazaki. Shimazaki touches on a number of different topics relating to the characters’ design, such as the  the themes behind the character outfits and of course shows off a bit of concept art. Here’s an excerpt:

Bayonetta’s overall theme this time is “Solid.”

She’s still wearing black, and I think her shorter hair gives her a generally more masculine look. While her design in the last game focused on curves, this time we see more straight lines. All of her accessories follow this, except her glasses, which I gave a slightly softer design.

PlatinumGames put up a blog post today covering the Nintendo costumes in the first Bayonetta. Players will be able to try out Link, Samus, and Peach outfits.

One interesting tidbit concerns Hideki Kamiya’s involvement – the game’s original director. He “carefully checked” each one, and Kamiya was said to be “very particular about how each costume should look before passing approval.” Kamiya also requested using the original Power Suit for the Samus outfit.
