Forums - Gaming Discussion - Bayonetta 2 is NOT a WiiU exclusive and here's why!

That's what I mean, do we know for a fact that Nintendo is funding the development?

The game got officially canceled and now the project is back alive.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

How are you people so close minded? On way hand, it's down right absurd how much rage there is over this but on the other hand, it makes sense that people are upset about this. Granted overreactions aside, how can you bash people who are just upset over it? It comes down to common sense, they have reason to be. The original game was on two different systems and neither of them will get to the sequel. Some people just prefer PlayStation or even xbox so clearly they don't intend on getting a Nintendo console so it makes sense as to why people are upset it's not on their preferred console.

On the other side, Nintendo most likely saved a sequel from ever happening and for that there should be appreciation, even if you don't intend to ever play it. Would you rather the franchise die off with so much potential or it stay alive in any way? If you have any real respect you for the series you should have an open mind, you may be upset but again, wouldn't you rather it be saved and find life any where?

What I don't get is why Nintendo is publishing this. This is easily the most hardcore game they have published and they could have started to go after the hardcore gamer long ago, so why now?



Its sounds weird, but I miss the days when consoles had very distinct exclusive line-ups. I'd always end up getting all of them across the period for which the generation lasted (5-6 years)



Its gonna be exciting to see how a AAA 3rd party exclusive built from the ground up for the Wii U will look.



You could always just buy a Wii U. Just sayin'. You can even slap a Sony or Microsoft sticker over the Wii U logo if you so choose to.

Sega is not involved in publishing this game in any way, shape, or form by the way.

Nintendo is the publisher, Sega is only there as an advisor. Both Platinum Games and Sega have reiterated this.

That's it. This is Nintendo exclusive. Iwata said it was exclusive to Wii U. Platinum Game has said it was exclusive. If you are still in denial, you are dense. Go buy a Wii U if you want to play it. End of story.



Microsoft published Ninja Gaiden II didn't they? So anything is possible I guess.

uh, beware, there are a dozen people ready to jump you for that statement - personally I think there is a 10-20% chance we see an altered version on other consoles or maybe pc 6-12month after the release of the Wii U version

but, time will tell

They didn't fund it from being cancel.

 

They would have take out everything in number 2 or would be sued.

 Microsoft did fund Ninja Gaiden II though, in the same capacity as Nintendo are funding Bayonetta II (As far as I can tell). I.e. they both act as publisher but don't own the IP rights.
