Bayonetta 2 comes with original Bayonetta game, Peach & Samus costumes

When Bayonetta 2 comes out for Wii U, you'll be getting two games for the price of one.

Nintendo announced today that the predecessor for Platinum Games' hotly-anticipated action title will be included with Bayonetta 2. The first Bayonetta came out for the PS3 and Xbox 360 in 2009 and skipped the Wii. Today's news means that the Nintendo faithful who haven't played the original will essentially get to play it for free.

The game will also let players dress up in gear from other Nintendo games like The Legend of Zelda. The video showed with Bayonetta trading in her black bodysuit for Link's green garb and cap, a Princess Peach-like outfit and Samus's armor from the Metroid games.

Game creator Hideki Kamiya is less than enthused with the game's boxart. "I hate the logo of WiiU ver.," tweeted the outspoken game creator in English. "Junk." In Japanese, Kamiya was slightly more salty, tweeting, "The Bayo 2 package is shit. Who's the damned bastard who changed it..."

When asked if he had control over this, Kamiya answered, "No. They did it without any permission."

When asked why he was upset, Kamiya replied, "They removed the crescent behind Bayo & put full moon & changed the color of "2" in red. JUNK."

In the top image, you can see how the original art compares to the game's Wii U box art. I kind of agree with Kamiya. The new Wii U box art isn't as good as the original design.

1, 2, 3

Let's dance!

Nintendo seems to be stepping up their game, I'm surprised.
filthyhoe 11th-Jun-2014 06:01 pm (UTC)
Still pressed that this isn't on PS4
wonderwomanhero 11th-Jun-2014 06:08 pm (UTC)
lbr you know they'll announce it

...or nintendo could be actually stepping up their game and making sure it never gets ported. they really do need to shoot themselves higher so they get into the big leagues
punishermax 11th-Jun-2014 06:10 pm (UTC)
Nintendo themselves funded the whole damn game, there's literally no way in hell this is ever getting ported.
wonderwomanhero 11th-Jun-2014 06:30 pm (UTC)
thank god
xdecadentx 11th-Jun-2014 06:26 pm (UTC)
Same but for XBOX 360
wonderwomanhero 11th-Jun-2014 06:34 pm (UTC)
Japan doesn't care about the xbox for some reason :(
(i'm still pissed about the Namco-Bandai Tales series situation)

If only it had Super Mario World too.
kittymink 11th-Jun-2014 06:17 pm (UTC)
YES, between this and Bayonetta 2 and new Zelda as well as Mario Kart 8 being out right now I need me a WiiU.

Splatoon looks like great fun too.

Nintendo's comeback begins now.
punishermax 11th-Jun-2014 06:01 pm (UTC)
The first game is simultaneously one of the dumbest fucking games ever and one of the most fun.
quiveringbeaver 11th-Jun-2014 06:06 pm (UTC)
God dammit I need a Wii U
jellycar 11th-Jun-2014 06:08 pm (UTC)
ahhh I loved the first game so much! But I don't have the correct platform for this gdi
bagelsvswaffles 11th-Jun-2014 06:09 pm (UTC)
I might get this now that it comes with the first one too. Might wait a bit for a price drop, though. But I also want to support these kinds of games when they're on a Nintendo system too, though. So that also makes me want to buy it at launch. But it's $60.
brenden 11th-Jun-2014 06:13 pm (UTC)
i've never played the first one but have heard good things about it!! i am pleased with this. nintendo has been doing it for me. i have a feeling the wii u is going to turn around after this e3.
bluntbitchqueen 11th-Jun-2014 06:37 pm (UTC)
right?? i never took wii u seriously, but they are havin' some strong stuff lined up which is surprising since i haven't touched anything nintendo since early wii days.
brenden 11th-Jun-2014 06:44 pm (UTC)
i got my wii u last year, no regrets and probably my main console now. people shit on it all the time, but there have already been some great games: new super mario bros u, super mario 3d world, pikmin 3, wonderful 101, the windwaker remake, donkey kong country...now mario kart!
bluntbitchqueen 11th-Jun-2014 06:46 pm (UTC)
oh great makin' me want it now. fly away sweet money~~~
lexification03 11th-Jun-2014 07:23 pm (UTC)
literally we got a wiiU last night because there are 10+ games that we wanted to play now that we've seen what's coming mixed with what has recently been releasd. Mario Kart is life rn

OP here are details about the first game that will come bundled with it if you want to add: http://mynintendonews.com/2014/06/11/original-bayonetta-for-wii-u-is-60fps-dual-audio-and-features-off-tv-play/

Tbh when I finally get the Wii U (which will happen) I will def check this game out.
wesaucereyes 11th-Jun-2014 06:25 pm (UTC)
i need to find some cosplay pics cause them shoes are amazing.
xdecadentx 11th-Jun-2014 06:27 pm (UTC)
I need to find someone with a WiiU who will let me use their console.

My cousin has one but he's like 11 and I don't want him wanting to know about the game...
wonderwomanhero 11th-Jun-2014 06:32 pm (UTC)
I still am wary of the Wii-U controller. Feels like it would be too distracting, not just for this game, but for all games. You're essentially looking at one screen and then looking up at the tv and back and forth and it seems like a headache.
mirandastan 11th-Jun-2014 06:41 pm (UTC)
I had the same worry when it was announced but its actually my fave part of the system, its just feels really fresh

wonderwomanhero 11th-Jun-2014 06:33 pm (UTC)
I'm hoping the animated movie gets released stateside. It looks fun.
agentnever 11th-Jun-2014 06:34 pm (UTC)
lol that Link costume.
mirandastan 11th-Jun-2014 06:39 pm (UTC)
omgggggg I have a wii u and Ive never played the first one and now this happens its like Ninendo is speaking to me

And they've announced dates for things aswell? With games coming out in the next few months? This is not the Nintendo I remember
vanilla_slut 11th-Jun-2014 06:47 pm (UTC)
The first one is just so good, the best game i've played in this generation. And I'm in love with the Peach costume, it's ***flawless
metatarsus 11th-Jun-2014 07:07 pm (UTC)
I'll be honest, I own the first one and I've played a little bit of it but I have no fucking clue what I'm doing half the time. I'm just pressing buttons and hoping I'm hitting something?! Like, there's just madness happening on screen at all times lol.
semirose 11th-Jun-2014 10:14 pm (UTC)
Huh if next year's E3 is as good as this year's for the Wii U I'll probably end up getting one (because my backlog is waaaay too big right now to even think I'll be ready for it in the next year). Loved the first one and this looks great as well.
2wiceasnice 11th-Jun-2014 11:40 pm (UTC)
Im only going to get a wiiu to play this game tbqh

yasss bayonetta peach slay dem
missmunchkin 11th-Jun-2014 11:41 pm (UTC)
I can't wait! I love Bayonetta and I just a bought a replica of her glasses recently and put prescription lenses in them. Everyone at my job loves them and has no idea where they come from. lol.
