Perhaps one of the most interesting Wii U oriented unveils from Nintendo this E3 was the first actual gameplay trailer of Bayonetta 2, an IP that originally had its origins on the Playstation and Xbox consoles but has since been siphoned by Nintendo for its sequel. Once again developed by Platinum Games, gamers will hopefully be treated to another game full of exhilarating battles and plenty of looks at the sexiest demonic-hair-catsuit wearing female in the gaming industry
Some of the promoted features of this title includes:
- Armed with new weapons and abilities, Bayonetta has her enemies baffled by her new moves and torture attacks. In exchange for magic points, she can unleash a new ability called Umbra Climax to summon demonic monsters and deliver mighty attacks repeatedly.
- Choose between Normal and Touch play styles. The Normal Mode represents the technical control scheme unique to BAYONETTA, an acclaimed control scheme that fans of the previous game love and all action game fans will enjoy. The Touch Mode, on the other hand, offers a more convenient play style for those unfamiliar with action games or simply looking for a new spin on action. Players can use the Wii U GamePad controller’s touch screen controls to easily manipulate Bayonetta as she moves, attacks and evades enemies.
- Bayonetta’s longtime friend and fellow Umbra Witch, Jeanne, appears in the game (as a non-playable character) to assist Bayonetta in performing combination attacks and in doling out intense punishment against enemies.
- Take the action off the big screen and enjoy off-TV play using the Wii U GamePad controller.
Exclusive to the Wii U, Bayonetta 2 is set for release in 2014.
