    “…are both secret characters”

    Well, this being on the front page, not anymore xD

    • JustThisOne

      Shh shh! At least we don’t know how to get them or something, right?

  • Presea

    Awesome I love Bayonetta and Jeanne :D

  • Smooosh

    Okay, this is just AWESOME. xD

  • z_merquise

    Is the guy at the right Rodin? Why does the post only mentioned Bayo and Jeanne though Rodin is obviously there too? Poor guy.

    • JNT

      I was thinking this, that has to be Rodin.

    Secret characters? Been a while since I heard that before, usually you would have to buy such things nowadays instead of unlocking them and feel satisfied at the end.

    I’m seriously going to buy a copy of this even though I don’t have a Wii U.

      LOLOLOL so true… makes me remember the ps2 era where everything was unlockable in game for free….. good times. But DLC when handled well can be good.

  • Solomon_Kano


  • It would be cool if Hideki Kamiya was a secret character.

    • Blobghetti

      Didn’t they mention Wonder-Director in “Iwata Asks: The Wonderful 101 Development Staff”? D: You should read it if you have the chance as well! :) I thought it was pretty funny when I read that section. Haha.

    • Robgoro

      He is a character – the wonder director, who is a bald guy with glasses who is using twitter on his phone. XD

      • AndyLC

        Special move: will call the monster an idiot on twitter

  • Göran Isacson

    Oooh man, Rodin too? Hammer, Gun and probably sword with Jeanne… though I wonder if they mean secret as in secret unlockables, or future DLC? Hope they will have the same voice actors too.

  • MB_cl

    I seem to recognize the characters but the masks confuse me.

  • Freud_Hater

    Well yes, they are both playable characters… and they both look like shit.

    I’m sorry, I know it’s just because of the W101’s differing artwork, but I think they look terrible Oo

    • Laer_HeiSeiRyuu

      Nah, surprisingly they look fantastic

    • Arcana Wiz

      i like the chibi style……

  • MrJechgo

    Watch them add Jack Cayman from MadWorld next XD

    • idrawrobots

      I would love that.

    • British_Otaku

      Is it too much to ask for Yuri from Infinite Space to make a cameo on a spaceship? Then the whole 2009 trio from Platinum would be fully lined up.

      And a full appearance from Vanquish’s Sam Gideon so Mikami’s only contribution to Platinum isn’t forgotten.

  • grayson gee

    Wonder if this is some kind of relic from the “Wanting to use Nintendo characters” point of development seeing as three characters from another franchise are in it.

    • British_Otaku

      I don’t think so, Kamiya has had cameos and even playable characters from other games which he created or not in the past. Viewtiful Joe had Dante playable. Okami had nods to Viewtiful Joe. Bayonetta had nods to lots of SEGA stuff and Devil May Cry. This game has nods to Viewtiful Joe, Okami, a kid called Luka who wears a similar scarf to Bayonetta’s Luka, Nintendo stuff as well as this.

    • Arcana Wiz

      like British otaku said isn’t uncommon to Kamiya put cameos on his game.

      • grayson gee

        Seeing as I’ve had no experience with any of Kamiya’s games *sits in corner* This is a nice fact to know. I’ve always loved cross overs, even if it is just a little cameo. So far I’m thinking of buying the first Bayonetta on Xbox, but with that whole “Free games for Gold” thing going on I’m affraid of buying it, only for it to become part of that deal. Should I buy the game, or wait and see?

        • Laer_HeiSeiRyuu

          Well buy it only if you intend to buy it if there is a WiiU port. Yes I will have you buy it twice.

  • eilegz

    looks weird but then so the characters when they put a LBP version xD
