Nintendo has sent word that Bayonetta 2 will be hitting the Wii U on October 24th. In case you haven't heard of it yet, she'll also gain access to a new "snake transformation" that will let her navigate water, and of course, the first game will be bundled with it with all of the Nintendo costume options we've seen so far.

 

I had a chance to play Bayonetta 2 recently and enjoyed it. It's pretty much a faithful recreation of the crazy and technical action systems present in the first game, and I'm very happy that Platinum Games is keeping things simple with tactile control options.

Remember, Bayonetta 1 is coming bundled with this.

My Bayonetta 2 arrived yesterday.

Unfortunately I'm too busy with work, but I fired it up for an hour this morning.

My main concern was that the Japanese version would be Japanese only, but English is available for the soundtrack, and text, with multiple languages available for the subtitles.

 

Only played through the first chapter. I think I will switch to the pro controller, though, as the gamepad will be uncomfortable for longer play sessions.

Right, the Japanese get it almost a whole month before everyone else.

Played it for a few more hours.

The Pro Controller is definitely not as well engineered as the Xbox 360 controller.

Okay. Played a lot over the weekend.

Made it to chapter 10. Got 5 of the weapons and 1/3 of an LP away from getting the sixth.

Enjoying it so far.

Cool. I take it you are still playing with the Pro controller? Is the gamepad that bad?

The main problem lies in the fact that the right analog stick is a bit too close to the A and X buttons, so my thumb sometimes touches it when I'm engaged in some serious combo action. The WiiU Gamepad is actually a little better in that regard, so I may go back to it.
