    What do we have here, ANOTHER $60 port? Why Nintendo, What did we do to deserve this? Was it cause maybe the wii u sales wasn't as good as switch sales that you want payback? :ninja:

    (I hope is not $60) :ph34r:

    Nintendo switch costume like link has in breath of the wild. :P

    I dunno, lot has happened since 2014, so maybe some more easter eggs that tops bayonetta peach/zelda/samus. (Wish it was zero suit samus instead) :P
    This does give a chance for the bayonetta amiibo to get used though I doubt it. The shulk amiibo been out since 2014 and two xenoblade games released, did not use it :(

    I mean, it's entirely unsurprising. To all the butthurt fans, the game wouldn't exist without it being on a Nintendo platform considering Nintendo literally funded the game. Seriously, do people not know that Nintendo published Bayonetta 2? Do they even know what publishing means?

    People are unaware of the fact that PlatinumGames makes a pact with the devil Nintendo and there will be ONLY Nintendo-exclusives for Bayonetta now? I though that it's a widespread fact...

    I played Bayonetta 1 and 2 on Wii U because I keep hearing good reviews about them, honestly it's just a silly game that focus on how sexy ass she have, I didn't even find her sexy, her body looked weird, the gameplay is pure fast action with no skills at all, and the story is just so silly, comparing to Devil May Cry it's nothing unless you just want to kill time and smash the buttons the whole time.

    I don't know if Baynoetta is a good or a bad game, I was never able to get into the hype.
    I first played it on a friend's X360 for about 20 minutes almost a decade ago, didn't hook me in.
    Then one boring day I was window-shopping (or at least that was the idea) and I saw Bayonetta 2 for Wii U for $10 so I bought it. Played a while (perhaps 5 hours or so) didn't finish it, it was entertaining but again didn't hook me in, I didn't play it again.
    Afterwards one day MS gave me Bayonetta 1 "for free" on the XBX1 backward compatibility through their GOLD subscription.

    I guess I already have Bayo1 and 2, and I have them almost for free... And still I don't put time into them...
    Perhaps some day I get into them again and try to understand the hype, then perhaps I will want Bayo3, no idea, but not now.

    What would you say is the uniqueness of these games that make them so beloved by many?

    I heard a good positive about it (Not review things) but someone else. And i tried it but didnt seems interested in it so I stopped playing it. Not my things.

    Anyway... Sega shouldn't release downloaded code for the first game and a physical version for the 2nd game. That's ridiculous. The same for Capcom version of Resident Evil Revelations. Sighing. Better speak up to Sega Company and Capcom for the next time not to do that! A physical versions are way better than digital versions!

    Tell that to Capcom. They will want to hear that from you. I doubt Capcom come here and read it. I might be wrong, thought.

    Nonstop Climax Edition.

    - includes Bayonetta 1+2 in a steelbook case
    - includes 22 art cards
    - also includes three sets of stickers
    - due out Feb. 17 for 9980 yen


    Yeah, I'm in.

    I love that they're bringing this collection back. The WiiU just didn't have the consumer base for it, as joe88 and monkeyman mentioned. I hope more people get to play these fantastic games.

    To be honest, I didn't think we were getting Bayonetta 3 - I fully expected Wonderful 102 or Mad World 2. I'm so glad I was wrong.

    In terms of pricing; it's $60 for the standard combo, $49.99 for just Bayonetta 2 digitally (with the ability to then download Bayonetta 1 for $9.99), or $29.99 for Bayonetta 1 digitally and then an additional $29.99 for Bayonetta 2 digitally.


    I don't recall how much the Nonstop Climax editions are, though - just that Japan, Europe and Australia are getting them. (The latter 2 under the name "Special Edition)

    Considering Skyrim Switch is 60$ (although you can get it slightly cheaper on some stores), I really wouldn't hold my breath.

    To me now, and since bayonetta 2, Nintendo "morally co-own" Batonetta, when Platinum knocked on Sony and Microsoft, one said "no we already have an exclusive planned (that was never released lmao) and one said "not suitale for our image", where nintendo said "we will publish you and not even control the developement"...
    Buisness talking Platinum would have all reasons to make a xone/switch release of bayonetta 3 with the uncertain future of the switch, and the outcome of the WiiU, despite Bayonetta 2 being fantastic.
    I have a really big respect to Platinum to keep that loyalty to the people who helped them.
    I DO know they own naughty dog, was just saying that people where making odd statement saying that Bayonetta 2 SHOULD have been released to PS4/ONE and PC, but no, why would they release a title published by nintendo on other consoles, it's just as silly as wanting Uncharted on PC or Switch.

    Cry me to the moon...

    It's two games for the price of one, you know. It's a good deal unless you've already played the original

    Why a port of this game is a really good idea is because the second game is now "locked" on a unpopular console. To just port it to the Switch that seem to be a heck of a lot more popular, it's a good move from Platinum and Nintendo to give it another chance to glow. Also you know... PR for the third?
