Bayonetta 2 Will Have Online Co-Op Multiplayer

By Ishaan . June 11, 2014 . 1:01pm

Bayonetta 2 will have an online co-operative multiplayer mode, Nintendo announced at E3. The mode is called “Tag Climax,” and will let two players team up together.


Additionally in online quick matches, you’ll be able to wager Halos, the in-game currency earned by defeating enemies. If you can prove that you’re a better fighter than your partner, you’ll earn a large number of Halos back.


Halos can then be traded in story mode to unlock new techniques, buy new accessories, and pick up alternate weapon variations.


Bayonetta 2 will be released on Wii U this October. Retail copies of the game will come with the original Bayonetta included, with a few Wii U-exclusive features.

      Well that went to a lewd place rather quicklike. Recent fan-art what with the Link-outfit announcement, I take it?

      • ShawnOtakuSomething

        yeah I got the other half of the pic

        • Göran Isacson

          Wwwwwell now. That sounds interesting.

          And i was just about to ask for the other half, but then I just realized “holy no wait a minute, what if the other half is just Bayo LITERALLY teaching Link how to wield a sword, and I ask for the other half of the pic and then he just goes PSYCHE and I am the fool who is made a fool of!”

          Sometimes I fear I think too much.

      • How can Bayonetta be anything but lewd?

    • SoundMatch

      No but I’m sure they can LINK up.

    Huh. Have to admit I didn’t see that kind of multiplayer functionality coming, but I think I like it.
