A new Bayonetta 2 interview has come online over at CVG. The site spoke with director Yusuke Hashimoto, who talked about the decision to make a sequel, how Nintendo provided input, interest in continuing the series, and quite a bit more.

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.

Generally speaking, we shy away from posting classification listings unless they are of some significance. While the OFLC’s rating for Bayonetta 2 doesn’t bring anything new to the table, it does seem to be a sign that the game will be arriving sooner rather than later. We also learn that the game has earned a MA15+ rating – the same classification as its predecessor.

During a presentation held at UCF’s Center for Emerging Media last week, PlatinumGames creative producer JP Kellams shared a few words pertaining to Bayonetta 2’s Wii U exclusivity.

Asked about the challenges in moving between publishers and platforms, Kellams said that the game “would not exist without Nintendo white knighting that project.” In the end, Platinum “really wanted to make Bayonetta 2,” and that’s what mattered most.

Without getting into some stuff that is both business and confidential, the simple question I’d like to ask you is, ‘Do you want to play Bayonetta 2?’ Bayonetta 2 would not exist without Nintendo white knighting that project. So while I totally understand that people want to play it on the platforms that they’ve played it on previously, we really wanted to make Bayonetta 2.

Bayonetta 2 director Yusuke Hashimoto posted a blog update about the game on PlatinumGames’ official blog, covering the new trailer (60 FPS version included), title, and gameplay mechanics. You can find it below or at the link here.
