New costumes and mode announced in Bayonetta 2 Direct


Today’s Bayonetta 2 Direct (viewable here) was packed with gameplay and, maybe more importantly, announcements. We’ve known for a while now that a port of the original Bayonetta coming to the Wii U will include costumes inspired by Link from The Legend of Zelda, Peach from Super Mario, and Samus from Metroid. These costumes have been confirmed for Bayonetta 2, along with two brand-new ones: a Fox McCloud-inspired get-up and a Daisy-themed frock.

The various Nintendo crossover looks for Bayonetta also make small changes to gameplay, with rupees from the Zelda series and the use of Bowser’s arms and legs making appearances. To name a couple more examples, the Fox McCloud suit has Bayonetta wielding small Arwings and the Samus suit allows her to roll around as the iconic morph ball.

An online co-op mode called Tag Climax was also announced during today’s Direct. The mode will allow players to fight as Bayonetta, Jeanne, or Rodin.

In addition to being a girl gamer, Holly prides herself on being a red-head. Consequently, the blue shell in the Mario Kart series is her natural enemy. Don't worry, though: she still loves Mario Kart and is very good, despite the occasional blue shell-sabotaged race. Like any Nintendo fan, Holly also loves Zelda, Pokemon, Mario, Donkey Kong, Metroid, name it. But she'll try just about anything (besides horror games) and has a soft spot for unique, little-known rhythm games like Rhythm Heaven and Samba de Amigo. NNID: Aeroweth
