Bayonetta 2: a Wii-U exclusive game

Wow... so many people are being haters right now about Bayonetta 2 only being released on the Wii U. I know it makes no sense making a sequel to a game that was never on the original Wii a Wii-U exclusive, but considering the fact that there was never intentions of releasing the first onto the wii, i think this will do it justice

What a clever way to kill this franchise before it gets going, amusing.

Re: Bayonetta 2: a Wii-U exclusive game

It doesn't really make sense for a sequel to go on a console that never had the original

However, from what I've read, there wouldn't be a Bayonetta 2 at all if not for Nintendo. Sony, Microsoft, and Sega wanted no part of it so it wasn't even going to get made until Nintendo agreed to publish it.

If nothing else, Nintendo is hoping some of the people who liked the first but wouldn't have bought a Wii U will buy a Wii U to play the sequel

If I was a fan I would be pissed.

However I would probably calm down if I found out that was true.

If this is true, people should be thanking Nintendo for doing this. Haters gonna hate.

Re: Bayonetta 2: a Wii-U exclusive game

I'd like to read that article BH. I can't understand why a game would be so off limits on the other consoles when it has a loyal following and people still talk about it fondly. I think the game looks awful but I've seen lots of positive word of mouth for it.

That assumes the console won't sell, and considering the pre-orders at gamestop sold out in 2 days i find that unlikely. Nintendo has a strong fanbase, they won't leave it flapping. If Bayonetta's fanbase is as strong, I see it suceeding for both.

Really, this whole thing hearkens back to Devil May Cry 4, and the massive outrage over it not being ps3 exclusive. Fanboys gonna fan....boy.

Bayonetta 2 exclusivity on Wii U explained, not meant to alienate fans - National Console Gaming | Examiner.com

Bayonetta 2 Devs Respond to Exclusivity Criticism - IGN

So based off the articles, PlatinumGames is dancing around the issue and nothing has been confirmed, but Sega apparently dropped it at some point in it's development and that was going to be the end of the game but Nintendo came in and decided to pick it up and publish it.

Re: Bayonetta 2: a Wii-U exclusive game

I think Mass Effect is the oddest one as one of the major draws of the franchise is that you decisions from previous games carries over into future games.

Re: Bayonetta 2: a Wii-U exclusive game

@BS2- I have no doubt the WiiU will sell well. My point is the franchise was on the other systems so it makes sense that most of it's fans would be from those communities. Sure they cross over but not 100% of the time. This move removes a segment of the games fanbase right from the start. If it doesn't gain much momentum from WiiU fans it will effectively be dead.

@BH- So the gist is Sega basically dropped the game because it didn't wanna take a risk on a game that had good word of mouth and sales? No wonder Sega failed.

@Tenser- The difference is ME games didn't switch to another console to become exclusive, they became cross platform.

From what I remember Bioware released a free DLC pack that lets you catch up on the story and pick some major plot points so you don't get stuck with the default story from the previous games.
