Bayonetta 2 is a Wii U action hack and slash video game developed by Platinum Games and published by Nintendo, with Sega serving as the franchise’s adviser. It was directed by Yusuke Hashimoto and developed by Atsushi Inaba, under the direction of series creator Hideki Kamiya, and is a direct sequel to the 2009 game Bayonetta. It was revealed on September 13, 2012, and unlike the last game, which was only accessible on the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, it will be unique to the Wii U.
Bayonetta’s wardrobe and haircut have been updated, and the game has been updated to include a new two-player option. The game is also the second Bayonetta product to have Japanese voiceovers, with the same cast who provided the voices for Gonzo’s anime film Bayonetta: Bloody Fate. The game was launched in September 2014, and it includes a second disc with a port of the original Bayonetta.
