The biggest surprise from today’s Nintendo Direct event wasn’t the Wii U’s price and release date. No, that honor goes to the announcement of Bayonetta 2’s Wii U exclusivity. Gamers who spotted a Sega logo in the teaser may have been given false hope of a delayed PS3 or Xbox 360 version. Well, I have some bad news courtesy of a tweet from Sega.
@faseehdeen Bayonetta 2 is developed by Platinum Games and published by Nintendo. SEGA is working with both as an advisor to the project.

When was the last time Nintendo published a PS3 or Xbox 360 game? Now Platinum Games could make a third one and put it on next generation consoles (they still own the IP). So hope isn’t lost if you hate Nintendo products.
Although, if you ask me fans of the original should be praising Nintendo for putting their money behind the game. Microsoft or Sony didn’t step up to the plate and the original was on both of their consoles. Basically shut up, just be happy that we’re getting a sequel.
Bayonetta 2 doesn’t have a release date.
