Platinum Games has added an 8-Bit Bayonetta flash game to their 404 error pages.

How about you give it a try!


One of the Wii U’s most anticipated games of the year is almost upon us and some cool extra content is starting to surface for Bayonetta 2, this time in the form of concept art. We’ve embedded some of the art below, but be sure to check out the full range here

It’s that time again for the latest Bayonetta 2 developer blog, this time focusing in on co-operative play in the game. As always, we’ve included an excerpt and the full article can be found below

It goes without saying that there are co-op battles in the new Tag Climax co-op mode. However, there are also scenes in the story mode where you fight alongside A.I. controlled characters. These make for some really exciting battles, and are one of the cool new features Bayonetta 2 brings to the table. You can do crazy torture attacks together, and see some cool teamwork. Definitely keep an eye out for these scenes when you play the game.

Of course, actually getting this feature into the game was a serious challenge. A great example is Loki, a key character in the story of Bayonetta 2. You fight together with him in many battles throughout the game.

To celebrate the release of The Wonderful 101’s soundtrack, the Platinum Games blog has been updated with an article from the composers of some of their major franchises. Here’s an excerpt for the piece and as always you can find the link to the full entry here:

Hitomi Kurokawa

Hello everyone, my name is Kurokawa. The soundtrack for The Wonderful 101, the first game I worked on, will be available starting today! I’m speechless! When you spend over a year working on something, you really get emotionally attached. I got really excited when I heard it was going to get a digital release!

The other day I went back and listened to all 127 tracks…wow, that sure is a lot of music. Intense too, especially the second half.

The theme phrase is used in over half the songs, so it is a lot of fun to see how it has been arranged in its various iterations. Before long you’ll be spotting that theme phrase like a champ. To both fans of the game and those of you who have not yet had a chance to play it, I hope you enjoy the music we made and, as you listen, find yourself immersed in the heroic world of The Wonderful 101!
