  • I wont watch this yet but I am just going to assume these 2 videos can be summed up in:

    “Disregard anatomy, acquire long legs.”

  • PrinceHeir

    how lovely :P

    lol at Hideki Kamiya’s reaction “and this is uh… you know…

    a scene you might feel a little uncomfortable about watching with your parents”

  • Hideki Kamiya is one hell of a guy. I love his personality and creativeness…Amazing man! Love you Kamiya-San…Now give
    me more Bayonetta hehe

  • TomSkylark

    Is there any news on a sequel? “Bayonetta” was one of the few action games I’ve unabashedly loved in the current console generation, and I’d hate for it to go without some sort of follow-up. I realize my asking this makes me look totally out of the loop.

    • Yeah, he had announced that he was working on a sequel

  • Guest

    which version was he playing

  • Hah, I like how casual he was about everything. “You might not even hear the narrator here” Stuff like that where you really wonder if during development if they wanted you to focus on little things like that. It’s cool seeing his side to things.

  • puchinri

    I’d like to hear the other versions of the narration. x’D
    Although, is there an artbook out already? If not, I wonder when we’ll get it (and if so, I obviously need to hunt it down.)

    Also nice to know he was impressed by Shimomura’s work on DMC3. I wonder if that means anything about how he felt about the title? And highly amused that he didn’t know Eggman, especially since that was his name in the Japanese version from the start.

    Since I’m still in the beginning of the game, I feel like going back and seeing if I can change the color of the lollipop.

  • Cant wait for the sequel!

  • Yea i’m kinda surprised as well he didn’t know about Eggman lol anyway when is SEGA gonna officially announce the sequel for Bayonetta already!
