"Would Bayonetta 2 not exist without Nintendo? The answer is yes," says Atsushi Inaba, executive director at Platinum Games. "We are not viewing this as a change of platform," "We were looking for a partner to create Bayonetta 2 and Nintendo was a strong, cooperative partner that was willing to create and grow Bayonetta 2 together [with us]. As a result the platform became the Wii U." Inaba says platform change won't affect core gameplay. "We create the basic framework of our games on the PC, so even though the hardware changes it doesn't influence the creation of our games. We've already developed our own engine to work with multiple platforms." "Because of the Wii U GamePad, we are putting extra thought into how to use these differentiating features," "There's a difference in the game design side, but we are enjoying the challenges of creating games for new hardware." http://www.theverge.com/gaming/2012/9/22/3371474/bayonetta-2-would-not-exist-without-nintendo-platinum-games-wii-u http://www.siliconer...th-bayonetta-2/ OMG I'M GOING TO KILL YOU KAMIYA NINTENDO ARE THIEVES.
