Despite being told time and again that Bayonetta 2 is and will remain a Wii U exclusive, some gamers have convinced themselves that the game will come to other platforms at some point, a view their entirely entitled to hold but one Hideki Kamiya, supervisor of Bayonetta 2 is tired of hearing, a fact he let them know in no uncertain terms in a series a twits.

“I think I have discussed this many times before but here goes… First of all, we [Platinum Games] are developers and receive support from publishers by making games that they request or suggest.

As for Bayonetta, we developed the game after signing a deal with SEGA. Later it was decided to also develop the sequel, so we started working on Bayonetta 2.

When development had progressed to a certain degree, in SEGA’s situation it turned into “This isn’t a good plan”, so development halted temporarily.

Without funding we didn’t have the possibility to continue development, but we wanted to get this partially developed Bayonetta 2 available to the public one way or another. So we offered it to various publishers, but as it is a big title, we couldn’t find a partner company. Finally, Bayonetta 2 was about to get terminated completely, when…

Nintendo came in and lent a hand and we were able to restart the development we so desired. Finally the game was released last week, so in five years, we were able to make Bayonetta 2 available to the public.

Knowing those circumstances, if someone is still angry for heading towards Nintendo, I wonder what’s the reason for that, wouldn’t you tell me in a way that is easy to understand?

As I have said earlier, if you want Bayonetta 2 on PS4 or Xbox One, how about trying to ask Nintendo… If Nintendo doesn’t say yes, it’s not going to happen… While you’re at it, try asking for Mario and Zelda too…”

So there it is, both from the horse’s mouth and in black and while. If you want to play Bayonetta 2 pick up a Wii U. That should be the games slogan right there. Your welcome Nintendo.

  1. I think I am going to put my Sega CD in storage. No new titles are coming out for it 😦

    A lot of people are bummed at this news as they liked the original, but don’t want to buy a Nintendo console. What do they expect though. The game only exists because Nintendo coughed up the cash to finish it.

    Perhaps they think it will be like the original Mass Effect. That game was published by Microsoft, but many years later came to the Playstation.

    1. I think your spot on here, Mass Effect’s appearance on the PS3 is without question the driving force behind the idea that Bayonetta 2 will eventually make it’s way to other consoles, however for that idea to hold water we’d have to accept the notion that Microsoft and Nintendo make use exclusives in similar ways and they simply don’t.

      That said I’d advise anyone who wants Bayonetta 2 but doesn’t want to shell-out for the Wii U to just wait awhile. Give it two years or so and the Wii U’s price will have come down enough to make it an impulse purchase instead of an investment and at that point everyone who wants to will get the chance to enjoy Bayonetta 2.

      As for the Sega CD don’t give up hope just yet, I’m certain Sega will unveil Shenmue 3 for either the 32X, CD or Saturn any day now.
