If you tuned into today’s Nintendo Direct to learn when Bayonetta 2 comes out, you’re pretty bummed right now.
During the broadcast, the Japanese publisher revealed a new trailer for Platinum Games’ Bayonetta 2, but as for a release date, it only said that the game was coming out “later this year.”
“With a variety of magical powers, this stylish heroine is well equipped to dominate the oncoming … enemy angels and demons.” said Nintendo boss Satoru Iwata.
New to Bayonetta 2 is the Umbran Climax, “a powerful new ability that lets you release all your accumulated magic power as a single, powerful attack … taking the action to a whole new level.”
The Wii U exclusive adds a new control option for players who want to control the action with the GamePad’s touchscreen and a two-player mode. Bayonetta herself is rockin’ a shorter hairstyle and the big shoulder look.
Bayonetta 2 is the sequel to the 2009 third-person action game for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
