Nintendo previously announced that Bayonetta 2 will have an online multiplayer co-op mode, called “Tag Climax,” where players can team up together. Here’s a closer look how it works.
In addition to being able to being able to invite your friends in Tag Climax mode, you can also be matched up with random players online or play with a CPU partner. The stages vary from having you fight challenging bosses, to hordes of enemies, and you’ll get to pick what time of stage.
As previously reported, in online quick matches, you’ll be able to bet Halos (in-game currency), to challenge the other player on who can score higher points. You can then use the money to unlock new techniques, accessories, and alternate weapon variations.
Stages are shown on “Verse Cards,” and you’ll pretty much have access to all the stages of the cards you own. The stage difficulty can be adjusted, with the higher difficulty ones requiring more Halos, but will also return more if successfully cleared.
Tag Climax mode lets you pick your own character, along with weapons and accessories. Equipment and character skills can be acquired through the story mode, so the further you advance in the game, the better you’ll perform in Tag Climax.
Bayonetta 2 is slated for release this October for Wii U.
