Platinum Games

I only ended up recording the mech portion of this segment, but Nintendo has uploaded the full thing to its YouTube channel. Check it out above!

If you purchase Bayonetta 2 in North America or Europe, you’ll receive the original Bayonetta for free. This will be made available as a digital release on the eShop.

Things are a bit different in Japan. All retail copies of Bayonetta 2 come with Bayonetta on a separate disc.


– When in the Link costumes, finding items results in Zelda music
– Initially, there was an undershirt beneath Bayonetta’s Link costume
– Nintendo suggested they get rid of it, since it wasn’t fitting of Bayonetta’s character
– Hashimoto joked that he was surprised Nintendo would suggest that, but PlatinumGames went ahead and removed the undershirt
– Samus’ costume is the original Power Suit, not the Varia Suit with rounded shoulders
– You can change whether the visor on the helmet is up or down
– You can change the visor on the fly depending on your preference
