PlatinumGames Show Off Bayonetta 2’s New Weapons



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.
