PlatinumGames Show Off Bayonetta 2’s New Weapons

By Ishaan . June 18, 2014 . 11:02am


During E3, Nintendo and PlatinumGames provided a good look at Bayonetta 2, complete with commentary from director Yusuke Hashimoto and producer Akiko Kuroda.


During the live-stream, Kuroda demonstrates some of Bayonetta’s new moves and weapons—one of which is a scythe that can turn into a rifle. Bayonetta also equips a weapon on her feet called Undine, which can either be a flamethrower or fire a stream of ice, depending on its elemental affinity.


Bayonetta 2 will be released this October.

    I love that at the end it cuts to the cartoony stars of the Mario games after 20 minutes of showing demons and a half naked woman.

    • SaiyanJedi_Trunks

      This sexually charged, demonic hack and slash was brought to you by the kawaii characters of Nintendo where family is always first :)

    • Shippoyasha

      Japan has their priorities right. I am not even being sarcastic.

  • subsamuel01

    Really hope this sells well, definite day one buy for me.

  • SMT

    Well, looks like I need a Wii U now…
    My poor, poor wallet. ;_;

    • ConkerBFD

      Make like I did and sell your wallet! Why have an empty one?

  • SaiyanJedi_Trunks

    This whole game looks beautiful…including that little surprise at the end. As one person remarked, it is destructive poetry in motion. :)

  • Ardus

    Damnit I dont want a WIIU but nintendo isnt giving me much of a choice.

  • Hentailover

    “A scythe that turns into rifle”…
    I need this in my life…

  • Busterblader

    A scythe that turns I to a rifle…… Rwby?

    • mikebrand83

      Ruby: “It’s also a gun.”

    • Chris Evan Jonance Ingeniero

      for someone who doesnt know what rwby is ~ i dont give a damn~

  • Scourge626

    Pretty sure they were watching this when they came up with the Scythe Rifle…

    • powerprotoman

      ya no i doubt the people who made gun nunchucks with a bruce lee motif and more importanly bayonetta watched something as bad as RWBY(matter of fact i know they didnt dont belive me go ask hedeki kamiya)

    • darke

      I hope not. WiiU owners are suffering enough at the moment; they don’t need to suffer from a game with terrible visuals and awful acting as well!

      • mikebrand83

        For what was essentially an indie production with a budget a fraction of typical action anime series? You might not like its visual style, but RWBY’s action choreography completely blows away virtually all action anime in existence.

        • darke

          I wasn’t comparing it anime. When it’s action choreography and visuals is worse then computer games then it really has problems.

          You don’t get a pass for being bad by being ‘indie’. A good ‘indie’ of anything; games, movies, animation, they all know to work within the limits of their resources.

          Maybe it got better with time, I only watched the first part when it was released, but it felt like it was popular because RvB was popular, rather then standing alone by itself. (shrug)

    • DragKudo

      I guess you never heard of Margaret Moonlight.

      • Scourge626


        • DragKudo

          D: Play no more heroes 2

    • Nanashrew

      How that series is even popular I have no idea. The fight scenes almost no one ever makes contact so it looks like a bunch of phantom punches being thrown, and the visuals and animation look like MMD version 1.

  • ShawnOtakuSomething

    ε=ε=ε=ε=ε=ε=┌(๑ʘ∀ʘ)┘ I need this in my life now

  • johnnythunder

    scythe that turns into a rifle? so the girl from no more heroes 2?

  • goa ahsd

    Bayonetta’s overall story is a complete mess and the characters are deathless dull… but thats ok because the gp is top notch quality

  • Guest

    Mods I think it’s time to do some cleanup…

  • AzureNova

    There are no words to describe my hype lol =^_^=

  • new_tradition

    The first game will be included with this sequel game as a digital download apparently, so it’s should be newcomer friendly.

  • Guest

    Bayonetta 2 wouldn’t exist if it weren’t for Nintendo.
    Bayo not getting a sequel, THAT sucks.

  • CozyAndWarm

    Why does it suck?

  • Arz

    no, that whore should stay at Whore Island and Platinum should focus on making another ip.

    okay, I just hate Bayonetta. apologies.

  • Guest

    I fail to understand what makes you do such harsh remarks, in-game Bayonetta is quite badass, confident and skilled. And even then, the game mechanics are where the strength of the title relies so it’s not as if PG weren’t doing their jobs where it’s due, it’s just that having a compelling main character as her is a big plus.

  • Chris Evan Jonance Ingeniero

    the WiiU version has both bayonetta 1 and 2
    and the bayonetta 1 for the wiiu has Metroid, Princess peach and Link mode costumes

  • Nanashrew

    Well the Wii U version is definitive. Bayo 1 is 60fps and no screen tearing while the PS3 version has a ton of problems.

  • Nanashrew

    Also Bayo 1 comes free of charge when you purchase Bayo 2 digitally or retail. That’s a really nice deal.

  • Arz

    I don’t consider acting slutty and getting naked as you fight as badass. I love PG games, and i can handle the other sexual fanservice they dish out on their other games. But when the main character is like that, fucking NOPE.

  • Guest

    I admit there might be issues in the way she is portrayed, as some situations might be context sensitive but, just the rest of the game, there is little subtlety. In-game, she is confident and projects what she wants, well, she basically do what she wants, as a badass; and just because her character isn’t prude, shy and modest doesn’t mean she is “slutty”, she remains in control (And foremost of her sexuality) all the time. She exudes power beyond any other being on the game, and by all the cast, she is treated as a force to be reckoned with, and only the angels are the ones that try to suppress how she is and all what she does in her own terms.

  • Arz

    Dude she has the personality trope of a horny anime woman character. And why you constantly bring up that she’s so powerful? Shes’s a character in a character action game of course she’s gonna be able to blaze through the enemies. Also she gets naked as a supermove.

  • Death Metal

    Are you a priest or something?

  • Arz

    I just fucking hate sexual fanservice. I don’t need half-assed porn in my games.

  • Death Metal

    Well, I guess these just aren’t *your* games then, since there’s obviously an audience for sexual fanservice. And btw, Bayonetta is far from the exaggeration you’re making it to be.

  • Arz

    I don’t think I’m exaggerating, since I played the first one all the way while cursing PlatinumGames for mixing great gameplay with that bullshit.
