Did You Spot Any Hidden Beetles In Bayonetta?

By Spencer . May 3, 2011 . 1:16am

Platinum Games posted another developer’s commentary video for Bayonetta where Hideki Kamiya, producer, plays through the prologue. Kamiya says animator Eijiro Nishimura hid a beetle in the graveyard scene and there are hidden beetles in Resident Evil 4 too.



So, instead of easter eggs, Nishimura’s games have "easter beetles" I… can’t recall seeing any of those in Bayonetta though. I think I was too focused on dodging attacks to trigger witch time to give the background much attention. Did anyone notice any beetles in Bayonetta?

  • Not me :/. Really hope this guy gets to making the sequel though

    I was too distracted by the perspicuous beauties.

    Hidden beetles in Bayonetta? I thought only Vanquish had it: http://platinumgames.com/2010/07/23/vanquish-fan-interview/

    -Can Shinji Mikami shed some light on some hidden parts of the game that make it special and different?

    The staff decided to screw with me a little bit by hiding some rhinoceros beetles in the game. They did this without me knowing, so definitely be on the lookout for them in the game.

    Oh, and am I the only one who was more hyped for Bayonetta but ended up loving and playing Vanquish more? Both games are (and still) awesome though.

    • Another shocking development. :O A conspiracy is afoot!

    • PrinceHeir

      well i enjoy both equally :D

      but Bayonetta wins for me. still Vanquish is one of the best 3rd person shooters ever :P

  • Bayonetta forever <3
    Marry me Kamiya-San! XP

    • PrinceHeir

  • amagidyne

    Someone at P+ must really like the beetles.

  • Reminds me of Boxxy…

    • MisterFoxInc

      What does?

  • IceRomancer

    I barely remember the graveyard area, let alone some beetles :/

  • bayonetta 2 here, bayonetta 2 there, does anyone here recall why kamiya, mikami, inaba and co left capcom!?…well, among other things of course, they left capcom beacuse they didn´t had the freedom they wanted, they were tired cause they couldn´t make new I.Ps…they constantly complained about capcom´s policy of making sequels… so, making a bayonetta 2 or a vanquish 2 may not be the way to go for these guys…and why so many people are so obsessed with sequels!?… Is it something wrong with bayonetta or vanquish? does they really NEED a sequel?

    • No, nothing was wrong with it. In fact, they were so good, we as fans would like to see their ideas expanded, taking what we love, and giving us a new experience.

      Treasure did something similar(left Konami because of creative difference, doing a bunch of sequels), but that didn’t stop them from doing sequels to Sin and Punishment. And that sequel is FUCKING AMAZING, much better than the original. There’s no reason Platinum Games can’t do the same. They established a new ip with Bayonetta, sold over a million copies, now its time to expand on that sucess.

      • well, yes, you may have a point with s.p, the sequel is absolutely perfect, but you have to consider the fact that it was made 10 years later, and Wii controllers were just begging for a s.p sequel. (In fact, we got lucky they localized it). Of course that there´s a lot of great sequels (I wasn´t trying to say that sequels are always a bad thing) but I believe that they, as creators, need some time, they need to be “left alone”. Look at anarchy reigns, you got jack cayman, but it´s not a madworld sequel, I personally prefer that kind of surprises rather than a direct sequel…again, I´m not totally against sequels (specially if that sequel is made by the same team behind the original) all I´m saying is; let´s just wait and see what these guys are capable of.

  • PrinceHeir

    didn’t saw any beetles O_O

    don’t i guess i didn’t payed attention since the game is soo fast paced :P

    “Hellena Taylor, the voice actress is also quite beautiful”


    100% agree Hideki Kamiya :P
