    Given the fast selling out of the EU First Print Edition I'd imagine much better numbers already for PAL regions alone.

    Not at all surprised. You don't make a fairly risque game exclusive to a mostly kids console.

    edit - I wasn't aware Nintendo funded it. I guess it's a risk they thought was worthwhile. At the end of the day if I was a Wii U owner I'd be happy that there's something a bit different being released.

    when will companies learn... especially on a Wii, cmon Nintendo... then again this is the same company that has made 50 different versions of the 3ds, how they are still in business I'll never understand.

    You are aware Nintendo funded this right, not Platinum? If Nintendo didn't fund it, it never would have been made in the first place. So Platinum aren't out of pocket, Nintendo will be. Although apparently they are so cash rich, supposedly they can afford a bad business decision or two.

    no surprise really with smash bros out on the 3ds and japan very much handheld first when it comes to gaming. it will probably do better in the west but probably again low sales.

    Gotta hand it to them for trying at least. I'll be waiting for the PS3 version.

    I think I have discussed this many times before but here goes… First of all, we [Platinum Games] are developers and receive support from publishers by making games that they request or suggest.

    As for Bayonetta, we developed the game after signing a deal with SEGA. Later it was decided to also develop the sequel, so we started working on Bayonetta 2.

    When development had progressed to a certain degree, in SEGA’s situation it turned into “This isn’t a good plan”, so development halted temporarily.

    Without funding we didn’t have the possibility to continue development, but we wanted to get this partially developed Bayonetta 2 available to the public one way or another. So we offered it to various publishers, but as it is a big title, we couldn’t find a partner company. Finally, Bayonetta 2 was about to get terminated completely, when…

    Nintendo came in and lent a hand and we were able to restart the development we so desired. Finally the game was released last week, so in five years, we were able to make Bayonetta 2 available to the public.

    Knowing those circumstances, if someone is still angry for heading towards Nintendo, I wonder what’s the reason for that, wouldn’t you tell me in a way that is easy to understand?

    As I have said earlier, if you want Bayonetta 2 on PS4 or Xbox One, how about trying to ask Nintendo… If Nintendo doesn’t say yes, it’s not going to happen… While you’re at it, try asking for Mario and Zelda too…

    haha!

    Brilliant!

    I'm actually not sure what people don't understand about this. To me at least it's as clear cut as The Last of Us not going to Nintendo. As clear cut as knowing I'll never play Halo on my PS4. As clear cut as never being able to play Zelda on my Xbox. Is that really so hard to understand?

    Ahh so it's actually a nintendo exclusive title. Sucks that Platinum couldn't find any publishers other than Nintendo. It looked pretty cool from the vids I'll have to borrow someone's Wii U sometime

    Nintendo fanboys largely don't buy many 3rd party games for their home consoles, that's the on-going trend. They're all talk and no act.

    Really the opposite of spineless "boycotters" who just end up buying the game that boil the blood anyway.

    Well, either Nintendo funded the game and Bayonetta 2 was born, or nobody funded the game and Bayonetta 2 was indefinitely cancelled.

    Even if it sold poorly, it's nice that the game saw the light of day. It's not Platinum's fault that the WiiU isn't doing well.

    Here's an idea:- they should port it to New 3DS (Ditto for Devil's Third, since we know that will flop too.). Graphical downgrade, sure, but who the hell plays DMC-alikes for the graphics?

    Smart consumers would actually buy a New 3DS to play a game like this, since it's a console with an automatic large game library thanks to backwards compatibility.

    Action-intensive games like Bayonetta just don't work on handhelds. The New 3DS isn't much of an upgrade either.
