Bayonetta 2/Wonderful 101 Wii U exclusive, other platforms up to Nintendo

#1AuronSamuraiPosted 2/8/2013 7:20:33 AM
Outspoken Platinum Games designer Hideki Kamiya made it clear Bayonetta 2 and The Wonderful 101 are staying Wii U-exclusive unless Nintendo says otherwise. Posting on Twitter, the Bayonetta director said that the games will be published on PS3 or Xbox 360 only if Nintendo says they will, and implored fans to stop asking Platinum Games about it.

"We are a developer. Nintendo are the ones kind enough to fund and publish our The Wonderful 101 and Bayonetta 2 projects," said Kayima, according to a translation he retweeted later. "So if Nintendo says, 'We are publishing Bayonetta 2 on PS3/360,' then it will happen. So please go ask them, not us."

The news follows a week which saw the formerly Wii U-exclusive Rayman Legends delayed until September for a multiplatform release on PS3 and Xbox 360 as well, and Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor's Edge being ported back from Wii U to the two rival consoles. Still more surprising than either piece of news was the announcement last year that Bayonetta 2 is coming to Wii U, and not, like its predecessor, PS3 and Xbox 360.

It's nice that Nintendo stepped up when Sega rejected the idea of funding Bayonetta 2. People who complain about Bayonetta 2 not being on the PlayStation or Xbox platforms need to remember... the game wouldn't exist at all without Nintendo's assistance, really.

I doubt that. Nintendo were just quickest ones to get in there. Plenty of companies would have funded Bayonetta 2.

Indeed. Even Konami would have funded them.

Good to see Nintendo supporting Platinum Games, wonder if they'll give them an opportunity at making Starfox like Kamiya wanted. I'd personally want to see Treasure take the reigns but if Platinum are enthusiastic, I don't see a reason not to let them have a go.

Nice to them put an end to the topics stating it'll just come to 360/PS3 a couple of months later. I'm personally more hyped for the wonderful 101, loved Viewtiful Joe, wish Capcom hadn't killed the series.
