Among the series we could have expected to see on a Nintendo console, Bayonetta wasn’t probably on the list: one of the first games developed by Platinum Games features a lot of elements which are rarely seen on exclusive Nintendo games. However, if you all remember Madworld, the first game developed by the company and a Wii exclusive, it probably isn’t as shocking.
Announced together the final reveal of the console, Hideki Kamiya confirmed that without Nintendo, the game wouldn’t have been made: the first Bayonetta was released on Ps3 and Xbox 360 and while being a high quality product, it didn’t exactly break record sales. Bayonetta 2 is being developed exclusively on Wii U and some players have been showing concern for this decision, fearing the game will be lacking in graphics and the gameplay will have some forced Gamepad implementation.
While we have no information on gameplay, we can rest assured that the game will look incredible: in the latest developer diary video, at the end of the video itself, there’s a glimpse of a monster smashing through something in front of it. The footage looked like CGI but Platinum Games has confirmed today that it’s all real time graphics.
This is proof enough that games developed from the ground up on the new Nintendo console can look as great or even better than other consoles and from what little we have seen, Bayonetta 2 won’t disappoint fans in this regard.
