imageBayonetta 2 isn’t too far from it’s release date. Nintendo announced during Japan’s Nintendo Direct that Bayonetta 2 will be released this summer. Atsuko Tanaka, the voice of Bayonetta in Bayonetta: Bloody Fate will reprise her role for the Japanese version. In Nintendo Direct’s for the West, Bayonetta 2 is scheduled for sometime in 2014.


Siliconera played Bayonetta 2 a couple of times, check out our impressions of the game here and a new trailer.

    Noticed that you control that new character with the white hair sometimes, least that is how it looked when running up that platform.

    • Jeane is her name. She was in the first game too =)

      • Pdugna

        no the kid in the hoody

        • Ah lol

        • Lucky Dan

          It’s Yami-Yugi notice he has the millennium puzzle around his neck.

  • Sweet! Looks like I’ll finally be getting a Wii U this Fall or sometime early next year. Bayonetta 2 is what I was waiting for so I am excite =^_^=

    • TrueDefault

      Me too! I’m stocking up Wii and WiiU games right now.

  • DanijoEX ♬ the Cosmic Owl

    Sounds cool.

  • GH56734

    August 31, huh…
    I’m fine with that. Curse region locking ;_;

    • Daniel Jeanbaptiste

      It still coming to the west

  • PreyMantis

    Looks awesome as ever.

  • TrevHead

    Looking forward to release, if it’s as good as the 360 original it’ll be worth the price of the Wii U just to play it.

    • Laer_HeiSeiRyuu

      I played the demo.

      This game kicks Bayonetta ass on the 360 so hard it aint even funny

  • Xinen

    Has there been any word on whether or not we can change her hair? I’m happy others are, but my gf and I prefer some sort of longer style. Not a deal breaker but still.

    • z_merquise

      Previous game had many unlockable costumes so maybe there would be one with the classic look and long hair here.

      • TrevHead

        Classic Bayo (and other characters) as a unlockable would be very welcome

    • alixraen

      I feel you bro, long hair master race unite –

      • Laer_HeiSeiRyuu

        She looks hotter with her hair like this, and I like long haired galls XD

        • alixraen

          That’s your opinion, and my opinion is that she looks like a man. :P

          • Laer_HeiSeiRyuu

            You have bad taste.

            Or your eyes are bad from the side angle.

            *goes back to wondering why the voices are weird in the game*

          • alixraen

            I have, and what I seen cannot be unseen. I have to wonder why some people get so worked up over a simple difference in taste, to go so far as to boldly claim that I’m wrong for not liking girls with short hair…

            I thought this community was better than that, frankly. ._.

          • Laer_HeiSeiRyuu

            No, I just have a strange sense of humor. Facetious and dry it is. Particularly why Im fond of satire.

            Ah but that tinge of arrogance. Come down from the clouds, realize that this is the community with the trolling vita bot.

          • alixraen

            I don’t believe I’m superior to anyone, in fact I have quite the inferiority complex. So I would just like it if I didn’t get thumbed down to hell everytime I voiced an unpopular opinion, especially one that deals with something so subjective as what one finds attractive.

          • Laer_HeiSeiRyuu

            Who cares about getting thumbed down?

            Me? I dont pay attention to it, hardly ever touch it XD

          • alixraen

            Would you agree that sometimes people here get too overprotective about what they like?

            I wish I could ignore it as easily as you do…

          • Laer_HeiSeiRyuu

            Im dead inside to a point so there is that.


  • z_merquise

    Rival fights in action games are the best kind of boss fights. I wonder if there are others besides the masked guy.

  • monkey king

    The game I’ll be buying the system for won’t be released till autumn/winter?…..Great! Even more potential games for me to pick up with it.

  • James Enk

    leave it to Platinum to deliver an action pact adventure

  • TrueDefault

    I hope Kamiya managed to convince Nintendo to release a bundle for this game.

  • MrJechgo

    Please, please, please, please tell me that young boy isn’t the 2nd character that is gonna be used in co-op. I want a Bayonetta/Jeanne tag-team gameplay where one witch summons a torture device and the other tags in to kick the victim into it (without mashing buttons), where one witch starts a combo with a giant glove and the other tags in with a giant boot stomp or where one witch starts summoning a demon and the other joins in to make a black and white creature, such as a two-headed dragon :D

    (Yes, I’m aware of the story, that Jeanne had her soul captured, but I just hope that she gets freed in mid-playthrough so the player can use both for the rest of the game.)

    • Ixbran

      the younger character is a boy, cant you tell by his voice?

      • MrJechgo

        Damn… The hair threw me off…

      • DragKudo

        I thought it was a girl, but then his voice kept changing.

        • Ixbran

          I dunno, his voice seemed consistent too me.

          • DragKudo

            At first i thought it was Yuri lowenthal then at the end of the trailer he sounded like a grown woman.

          • Laer_HeiSeiRyuu

            He sounds like Juju from Xenoblade

            Watch the japanese trailer

          • DragKudo

            I don’t understand? Why watch the japanese version will that help me find out who the english voice actor is?

    • DragKudo

      most likely we’ll be playing as all three throughout the game. The little boy looks badass though.

      • MrJechgo

        Hope so… would be a bummer to get Jeanne as an unlockable character yet AGAIN.

    • Heisst

      Notice how Bayonetta’s health is still displayed, it wouldn’t make sense if he were like a second main character, it’s probably a little section ala Magnus from KIU.

      • Ixbran

        Lets not forget though that it has been stated this game would feature some form of Multiplayer, just no one knew how it would be done with Jeanne’s soul being pulled into Inferno.

        The fact the boy offers to join Bayonetta’s journey to get to her goal, leads me to believe he will her her travel companion, and players will be able to switch between the two in single player. and Second Player will be able to jump in at any time.

        So wouldn’t it make sense for them to have the same HP bar designs? Why would they each get something different?

  • idrawrobots

    Please release Bayonetta 1 on the Wii U! it would be a great advertisement for 2.

    • Kaetsu

      Kamiya said he would do it if Nintendo wanted it.

      • Laer_HeiSeiRyuu

        Nintendo better badger Sega then

    • ShinStar

      Your wish might come true.

  • Michael Connell

    Time to start saving up for that WiiU

  • Was that the Millennium Puzzle?

  • Mir Teiwaz

    Give me a date that this launches and you’ll have the day I buy a WiiU.

  • FetusZero

    No matter how much I loved Bayonetta, this won’t make me buy a Wii U. If, however, I do buy a Wii U one day (not in my plans so far, but who knows what the future holds for us), this is most definitely one of the first games I’ll buy.

    • Laer_HeiSeiRyuu

      Buy X next then

  • Surgeon of Death

    Ok I could have sworn that kid had the millennium puzzle….

  • Spirit Macardi

    Wait, that Lumen Sage… His voice sounds familiar…!

    It’s Crispen Freeman! It’s the Crimson F***ER himself! :D

  • xzeldax3

    I wish I could post a .gif right now

  • fairysun

    This game can’t be more awesome.
    This might be the system seller for me.
    And new Smash !!
