Bayonetta 2 is one of my most anticipated titles arriving this year, and I am thrilled the original game is going to packaged in. What I am even more thrilled about now is the fact we have a slew of brand new footage straight form Nintendo Treehouse.

  • Demo starts in a city setting with ghost-like people
  • Has two sets of weapons in the demo: one is a bow (new item for Bayonetta 2) and whips on her feet (whips can grab enemy and slam them onto the ground)
  • Can transform into different beasts, like a panther that can run around quickly or a serpent that can swim freely and quickly underwater
  • New character for this game (seen in last year’s E3) shows up; exists in the same dimension as Bayonetta and angels; is being hunted by angels for some reason
  • Combat: dodging right before an attack hits enters Witch Time, where everything but Bayonetta slows down, giving you a good chance to attack; gauges on top left is Life Gauge and Magic Gauge; with enough magic can activate Umbran Climax—lets you summon demons to expand area of attack
  • Having different weapons equipped leads to you summoning different demons
  • Touch controls—allows anyone to play Bayonetta easily and casually; when you select an enemy on the GamePad, Bayonetta will automatically attack it; swiping across the screen causes Bayonetta to dodge; can seamlessly switch between regular and touch controls at any time; outside of combat, touch a location and she will move to it
  • Summons tougher demons against tougher enemies
  • Moved to a train battle against a massive angel
  • Backgrounds have a lot of detail
  • Bayonetta 2 has online co-op
  • Demon (Gomorrah the dragon) which she summons escapes her control and attacks her; this sort of thing will be a big part of the game’s storyline
  • Aerial battles: Bayonetta grows wings and flies around while attacking
  • Character and enemy designs: goal is to make it so that you look at it once, and will not forget it again
  • Storyline: Jeanne saves Bayonetta but her soul gets knocked out of her body and taken to the Underworld; Bayonetta’s goal is to journey to the Underworld and save Jeanne

Our Verdict

Nathanial Rumphol-Janc
I am the current Editor-in-Chief of Zelda Informer and have been running the show here since July 16th, 2008. I've actually been running Zelda Fan sites since 1998, so I've been in this "industry" for roughly 16 years. I'm 28 years old and have two kids, one biological, the other more of a step daughter (not legally yet, but practically). I live with my girlfriend and our two kids (Aiden, age 1 and half, Melody age 3 and half). I'm attending college to create video games web applications, and I naturally love Nintendo (I run a Zeld a website after all!). For those curious, I currently own a Wii U, Xbox One, 3DS, PlayStation 3, and a gaming PC (and a gaming capable laptop too!). I do plan to eventually get a PlayStation 4, likely when more comes out I am interested in playing on the system. I do play the Wii U more than any other system I own.
