Bayonetta 2

Welcome to the witching hour- Bayonetta 2 review

If there was a game I never imagined would come to the Wii U, it would be a sequel to Bayonetta. I mean, the game’s hyper-sexualized protagonist really goes against Nintendo’s more family friendly approach to game design philosophy, but after saving Bayonetta 2 from the depths of the video game graveyard, Nintendo turned some heads. Bayonetta 2 makes no attempts to hide what it is and ...

The trailer sh...

Bayonetta 2 NYCC Interview

Full disclaimer: I am a big Bayonetta fan.  So I was excited to hear more about the title in a New York Comic Con interview.  David Young, Nintendo’s Assistant PR Manager, gave a short talk about the game’s features.  I will let you view the video to see for yourself but Young describes the game as “non-stop crazy action”, ergo expect craziness.
