Bayonetta 2 is coming to Wii U in October, Nintendo and Platinum announced today. The original Bayonetta will be included in the package. Additionally, the games feature Nintendo costumes such as Link and Samus.

In the latest issue of Famitsu, a number of developers shared their resolutions for 2014.

Hideki Kamiya’s was particularly noteworthy. In his resolution, Kamiya stated that “2014 will be the year where a new project will fully be set in motion.”

Here’s his resolution in full:

There’s a lot I hold dear in making games, but I think for developers, having fun is most important. The atmosphere of the workplace shows clearly in a game’s quality, so I want to treasure a team atmosphere where each member can have fun developing games. Also, 2014 will be the year where a new project will fully be set in motion. I want to boldly and happily walk that path without fear of failure.

Elsewhere in Famitsu’s feature, Masahiro Sakurai said: “I resolve to complete development on Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS/Wii U and release it in 2014.”


Ever since Bayonetta 2’s announcement, fans have been very vocal about the game’s Wii U exclusivity. Fans have continued to ask Platinum about bringing the game to other platforms despite the fact that Nintendo is responsible for publishing.

After hearing request after request, Platinum Games creative producer JP Kellams has said on Twitter that he’s tired of the port begging.

Update: Bumped to the top of the page. Kamiya also said the following earlier today:

Original: Hideki Kamiya wants to bring Bayonetta 1 to Wii U. The thing is, Nintendo would have to give their approval on such a project.

Let’s say Nintendo did sign off on a Wii U release of Bayonetta. Could Platinum Games prepare the title in time for the launch of Bayonetta 2? Apparently, this is doable.
