>Bayonetta 2 director Yusuke Hashimoto has once again expressed interest in returning to the series for another game. That news comes from the latest issue of GamesMaster, which features a brief interview with Hashimoto.
>In one question, GamesMaster asks about game sequels he’d like to work on. Hashimoto pointed to Bayonetta and how he’d like to create Bayonetta 3 – or even a spin-off.
>" A sequel to a Platinum title… I’d have to say Bayonetta 3. I have all kinds of ideas in my head for how to expand the world of Bayonetta in even more sequels, or maybe a spin-off!"
>This isn’t the first time Hashimoto has talked about making another Bayonetta-related title. Last June, before Bayonetta 2 even hit store shelves, he spoke about a desire to continue “nurturing” the IP. We’ve also heard from Hideki Kamiya (the director of Bayonetta 1) about wanting to make a spin-off for 3DS featuring Jeanne.
Bayonetta 3 is coming for Wii U guys. Brace yourselves.
Enough Bayonetta, as in, the character.
Make me play as the fucking lumen sage.
Look, at least add an option to use anyone i want for the entire sp campain.
Enough of these fucking witches, there's cooler factions in this game.
>Enough Bayonetta, as in, the character.
Are you kidding? I want MOAR of her.
>Nintendo is not lewd
What planet are you on anon?
Actually, Nintendo were the ones that said that one of the costumes (the link one iirc) wasn't slutty enough because it had an undershirt.
Basically, I think they can let it slide as long as it makes sense for her character.
> Fight the deity of hell to free Bayo and Jeanne from their fate forever
> More summoned demon fights
> An even more advanced Golem
Rival fight is Dante
Bayonetta 2 is not coming out for other system, or is it? The other day a friend guaranteed me that Nintendo were relinquishing the exclusivity of the game next year, I think he perhaps read a fake article or something, otherwise I would have expected a shitstorm on /v/.
They're the publisher. The only way Bayo 2 would come to another system is if Nintendo gave those rights up, and then someone else was willing to pick it up. That wasn't the case before Nintendo got their hands on it, and based on the sales (in a world where 600k or so still isn't good enough), I don't think it would be the case now either.
Nintendo bought the "games" from Sega. The only thing Sega owns is the rights to the anime, movies, music, etc.
Not old enough.
Not moon enough.
Ends with Bayo and Jeanne k i s s i n g
Nintendo only has production rights for 2. Sega still owns the IP and could, on paper, release a Bayonetta game without them.
Sega isnt doing console games anymore.
That's why they sold Bayo to Nintendo.
But they didn't. They still own the IP.
If Nintendo makes a game, it only goes ahead with Sega's--
Ah. Okay, nevermind.
Getting platinum interested has never been the problem, they are pretty much always interested. Hell, kamiya even said he'd drop whatever he's working on if he's offered the chance to make a new viewtiful joe
Here is what I'm hoping for
>Play as Bayonetta
>fucking around with the eyes too much has caused some multiverse problems
>Bayonetta dies due to some bullshit
>Play as Jeanne
>Go back in time and get teen Cereza to defeat whatever killed Bayonetta
>play as her
>save Bayonetta's soul
>all three fight the big bad
>dance sequence with Bayonettas and Jeannes from different universes
Well they're getting new work, but to work on original franchises and stuff. Most of the games people want them to revisit are either owned by capcom (lots of bad blood between the two there) or didn't sell enough.
I'm personally happy they're giving us new stuff though, they're very creative and nowadays you don't see studios that make new ip after new ip
Dont be surprised if they take another shot at W101. Nintendo usually creates a sequel to the games they publish even if they are niche.
this is bait
but i love this picture too much to not show it
I'd kill for a Jeanne game, though preferably it'd just be on the fucking Wii-U.
If they do I hope Kamiya gives Hashimoto a crash course in the Bayonetta gameplay design. Enemies and bosses being designed entirely around Witch Time was fucking retarded.
That and stop the annoying brown kids please. For fucks sake.
>Capcom would push DmC STILL
>Capcom hasn't made a good game in years anyways
>Last crossover made the people they did a crossover with look like a joke
Maybe they should stop touching shit until they get their act together.
I'm still trying to decide if I should buy Jeanne's glasses or not
It's terrible. Shitters go on there with the most bullshit equipment/characters so there really isn't any fun to be had. It was nice the first week or so
I can't see Bayonetta 3 for the Wii U considering how the second game flopped. Either it's going to be back to PS4/Xbone/maybe PC if founded by Sega
who am I kiddingor becomes a release title for the next gen Nintendo device if Nintendo is willing to found it again.
It's good, you pick your weapon set (you get one set only), your character, your costume, and find a partner and fight. The scoring system is pretty retarded though. It's entirely point based, so you can get a Gold ranking and your partner can get a Pure Platinum ranking, but as long as you have even 1 point more than your partner you'll win.
>considering how the second game flopped.
Did it really?
I'm pretty sure they knew the install base for the Wii U is small and they took that into account, did it flop even considering that?
It did much much better than Wonderful 101.
But there has been no exact numbers released except for one place saying 600k at
VGChartzso nobody really knows.
They haven't said it was a flop but they haven't bragged about how well it did either.
>Bayo 2 sold 600k
Jesus that sounds awful high for a platinum game. You have a source? I'm not trying to be snarky it's just I really couldn't picture Bayo2 going over 200k and I love the fuck out of the game.
lets not forget that if they were to release it on other platforms they would have to remove everything that nintendo paid for, so lets say one weapon was made because nintendo funded them, they will have to remove it in a xbone release, same with everything else. If nintendo funded it they have to redo it from scratch
I never realized how much I needed this.
>Strawberry lolipops are the best!
>Strawberry sundaes are the best!
>It all ends in brutal fucking.
>yeah, I know, still hate nintendo for stealing bayonetta 2 though. don't like that one bit.
How is it stealing if they were the only ones interested in the IP?
>made by Platinum
>Controlling at a similar pace to Vanquish
keep telling yourself that,
Bayonetta shouldve stayed multiplat
by going exclusive they killed the game.
Its a first party game so Nintendo made profit from it long ago. This is why the director in the OP is talking about S-E-Q-U-E-L-S.
>I have all kinds of ideas in my head for how to expand the world of Bayonetta in even more
sequels, or maybe a spin-off!"
Yup, they are even planning a Bayonetta 4.
Stop pretending there were huge fans for the game on the the Sony and Microsoft consoles.
The first game only sold well because people started buying it after it went to the bargain bin.
you could cure some meats with the amount of salt coming off those comments
>by going exclusive they killed the game.
The game was dead anyway.
The only reason it existed at all was BECAUSE of exclusivity, since no one else could be bothered to fund it.
If you want to complain to anyone, complain to Sony and Microsoft who think it's better to invest in other things than the stuff you like.
I dont think you realize this but
ninetndo stole a sequel to a great game.
this is like stealing call of duty and making it exclusive, like bloodbourne on ps4, no shit people are angry at this.
its injustice to the fans,
its blasphamy, its madness.
wtf no one was willing to foot the bill. Only nintendo. I'm not a nintendo fag but fucking hell you can't be this stupid. It's like getting angry with bungie when they were making halo for PC and Mac but micro soft bought them out and made them do Xbox only. If you pay the bills you make those rules. It's that simple
>still hate nintendo for stealing bayonetta 2 though.
They didn't steal it. SEGA couldn't risk paying for development and Nintendo stepped in and put their brand on it.
It could have been Microsoft or Sony doing the same thing but they were tied with other pursuits.
>Nintendo stole a sequel
I'm tired of that fucking excuse. They finished paying for Bayonetta 2. If it wasn't for them, the fucking game wouldn't exist! Stop being butthurt that it's not on your precious ps3 or 4 or the 360 or Xbox One. It's already released for the Wii U. Get over it.
Noone asked nintendo to release it on their stupid console.
I'd rather it not be made than to be exclusive forever on a console with a fanbase that doesnt and cannot appreciate the game as much as ps3 and xbox owners can , you can tell by the sales that despide fucking nintendofans on /v/ hyping it up, no nintendo fan who woned a wiiU actually gave a shit and loved the series as much as we did.
what a fucking tragedy. Nintendo not only stole a sequel, they killed the series by making it exclusive.
Some faggot was so butthurt he made this blog:
You sound mad you dont get to play your favorite game.
friendly reminder that Sony chose to fund this and not Bayonetta 2
and David Cage is still being funded by them despite the whole camera panning debacle
>Noone asked nintendo to release it on their stupid console
Nintendo saw an opportunity and pursued it.
That kind of thing's been going on in game development since the PlayStation 1.
>“Something that’s not as big in scale. Something that’s portable, that you could play in quick sessions, where she’s a history teacher and the kind of fun things that could come out of a scenario like that.”
Kamiya's not stupid, I don't think he would try to make a super fast action game on the 3DS
There was no oppertunity for them with this, they werent going to make a profit.
they werent going to gain anything from it.
but you know what? I think they did this to piss us off and troll us by stealing the sequel for themselves.
What a damn shame.
Nintendo agreed to fund Bayo 2 when they thought the Wii U would be a massive success and the market leader.
They thought the 2 million + installbase of people who played the first game would buy it.
They thought wrong. It's nice that Bayo 2 is a thing, but if they want to continue the franchise I think a spin-off is the way to go. Nintendo's base is casual, so they should look to what kinda games they buy and make a new entry based on that..perhaps the Jeanne School Teacher idea Kamiya had.
Or look at the Angel Land game, it would be cheap to make a Bayonetta side scroller but that wouldn't be the real Bayonetta anymore..
>It's actually a rhythm game
>You dance your opponents to submission
Unlikely, but Bayo in smash would be pretty swell
>Standard punch/kick combos
>Wicked Weave smashes
>Beast form specials/recoveries
>Guns for range
>Summon demon final smash
>Jeanne, Bayo 2 and Platinum alt costumes
>Stage set on clock tower debris falling through different dimensions with this playing:
Fortitudo as a boss
ps4 and xbox fans actually appreciate what they are given, see the order and master chief collection.
Nintendofans dont give a shit about anything that isnt their little IP clique
>Jeanne prequel detailing 500 years of battle against the Angels.
Or they can just fucking make something up. The only god they haven't killed yet is the one for the Demon Realm, but I think that's because Kamiya wanted to sort of leave things open for Bayonetta to be a kind of prequel to DMC. (She fucking busts open the Gates of Hell in Bayo 2, which conceivably led to Demons running rampant again, even to the point of killing Dante's mom.)
Maybe the reason Sparda disappeared is because she's the one that killed him?
>Look /v/, I'm damage controlling, crying and sperging out.
Wrong, Nintendo bought Bayo from Sega because of the Wii/You philosophy they have taken on with the Wii U. You can play games from Mario (E) to Metroid (T) to Bayontta (M). This is why they are also funding Devil's Third.
>Platinum announces a new Bayonetta game for PS4
It's just Angel Attack
>so they should look to what kinda games they buy and make a new entry based on that
No they shouldn't. The whole point of Bayo 2 (and Devil's Third) is to make the console interesting to more people
That doesn't seem to have worked, though.
Would changing her design into something more wholesome and making a side scroller that appeals to the casuals that buy Mario titles be so bad? Continuing the franchise doesn't mean making the same game over and over again. A spin-off is the way to go, that is if a return to the franchise ever happens. Just because Platinum wants it doesn't mean it will necessarily happen.
That's a great idea on paper, but you can't broaden your audience with one fucking game. Now, Bayo 2 is out nice and well. Maybe it even led some people to buy a WiiU by itself. But then what? What else is there on the WiiU for someone who's not into the usual Nintendo fare? There isn't a single game like Bayonetta on the WiiU right now except for Bayonetta itself, and none in the foreseeable future.
If I ever do play Bayo 2, it would probably be in a rented console or something.
Why do the butthurt always accuse Wii U owners of not even wanting Bayonetta because they play Nintendo games?
Because they like Mario games?
Last I checked, the majority of players on the other two consoles only care about AAA cinematic shit. Mario may be a complete rehash now. It may only have a tiny fraction of the difficulty it had decades go.
It's still more challenging and well put together than any AAA game.
>That doesn't seem to have worked, though.
Worked for me. I only bought it because Bayo2, and other stuff like Xenoblade are coming to the system. Don't kid yourself and expect Bayo to move millions of consoles on its own. It sold like shit when you consider how long it was out and how big the install was for Xbox and PS3. I bet the sequel outsells the original on the Xbox eventually.
There are some games like Zombie U, Wonderful 101 and Ninja Gaiden 3. I only listed the ones I have
