If you are a Nintendo Wii U owner, then you are obviously looking forward to seeing some progress made in the third-party game category. Black Ops 2 and Assassin’s Creed 3 were two very pleasing additions, but one upcoming third-party game that everyone is getting excited about is Bayonetta 2- the sequel to the popular first game and a title that is coming to the Wii U exclusively as well.
Xbox 360 and PS3 users are not too happy about it either after playing the original game, but the decision has now been made up. We’re guessing Nintendo paid a handsome sum indeed for exclusivity to the game and fans will be hoping that the game releases sometime towards the end of the year.
Platinum Games has remained very quiet on development on the game over the last few months, but they have dropped a small teaser within the last few days. The game was shown off at Nintendo’s recent Direct presentation for 2013 and a new image showing a boss character was teased at the very end.
If you saw the image, you may have thought it was CGI visuals on show, but it has now been confirmed that it was actually in-game graphics which is pretty impressive. Don’t worry if you missed the show, as the image can be seen here above – what do you think of the graphics quality so far?
Platinum Games has ensured fans that development for Bayonetta is still going ‘smoothly’, but we’re guessing that the next major reveal will come at E3 2013 during Nintendo’s keynote. If this happens, we’re also hoping that a solid release date will be finalized as at the moment, Wii U owners are up in limbo as to whether the game will be ready for a 2013 release or not.
Don’t forget that the game is being built from the ground up on the Wii U hardware, so are you excited about the capabilities on offer based on the teaser image above? The console is still being criticized for its potential compared to the Xbox 360 and PS3, but it goes without saying that games are only going to get better on the Wii U once developers really get comfortable with the hardware.
