It’s not a secret that a lot of people would like to play a brand new Star Fox game, and it’s also no big news that Platinum Games’ Hideki Kamiya has previously stated that he’d love to work on the franchise. Platinum Games also has quite a lot of experience developing on the Wii U by now, after Wonderful 101 and Bayonetta 2.
Good news nerds! Your favourite fictional witch is becoming an anime, and she’s hotter than ever!
Announced today by SEGA and Bayonetta Film Club, the full-lenght movie dubbed Bayonetta Bloody Fate, will hit only ten selected theaters across Japan on November 23 just for a limited two-week run.
Info are scattering through the internet, but for now we’re able to confirm that Bayonetta will be voice-acted by Atsuko Tanaka, that has quite a lot of geek experience in the field, and that the anime is made by the well-know Studio Gonzo.
Let’s hope to put our hands on this as soon as possible. But for now, enjoy the first trailer.
We already told you how The Wonderful 101 looked good when we tried it. Now the release date is approaching and the hype for the last Platinum Games’ title is increasing. Yesterday Hideki Kamiya hosted a very special Nintendo Direct, called -surprire surprise- The Wonderful 101 Direct, presenting and explaining all the features of the game. Here’d the direct in full lenght.
If you don’t have 20+ minutes to spend on this, here’s a shorter video, featuring just the full lenght trailer for the game.
Ah, almost forgot, a shiny brand new demo for The Wonderful 101 is available worldwide to download from the Wii U eShop! Have a nice play!
Today we’ve been to London’s Hyper Japan Summer 2013 (even if with all the rain we took it didn’t look like summer, but hey…finally some chilly temperatures!) and finally we managed to get our greedy hands on one of our most hyped Wii U games of this year, also because, along with Pikmin 3, it is the only remarkable release set for 2013 on the Nintendo’s home console.
We are abviously talking about Wonderful 101, the next big game from Platinum Games, exclusive for Wii U, directed by Hideki “bad boy” Kamiya and produced by Atsushi Inaba.
Unfortunately, like all third-party-Nintendo-console-exclusive, the game isn’t getting the right attention from the media (or from Nintendo, you decide), and that’s a real shame, because we all know how good Platinum games are (ehm…Bayonetta…ehm…Metal Gear Rising), and this is no exception.
We played the only level available at the event, but immediately it seamed pure gold. From the graphics to the gameplay, from the character design to the use of Wii U gamepad touchscreen, everything felt super right. Sure, we didn’t play enough to write a proper preview, that’s why we’re talking about feeling…but hey…we play since we’re born and sometimes we still get it right.
Want a hint? Buy it! Also because it will probably the only good thing to play on Wii U till 2014.
Everybody knows how annoying and rude Hideki Kamiya could be on his personal Twitter, in most of the cases he’s just a bad-mannered guy, but still sometimes he says words full of wisdom.
He is currently working on The Wonderful 101 for Wii U, and a couple of days ago he tweeted (is that a verb?) this:
If u hate to finish a game the next day u buy it, u better not play TW101. I focus on how it is fun, not how long it lasts till the ending.

So, we can assume that Tw101 will be quite short, but (hopefully) really fun to play. We’ll se, we count on you Kamiya!
Platinum Games and SEGA revealed that the high-hyped upcoming Bayonetta 2 will be no longer a Nintendo exclusive! Indeed the witch will be back (still in TBA date) on all the platforms, so Wii U, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. This is an awesome news for alle the fans that not own a Wii U (but not so awesome for Nintendo)!
Seems like the decision is led by the poor sales of the Nintendo’s console, but maybe the real reasons for this sudden change of mind are still unknown. This is what a Platinum Games spokesman said earlier today:
“After seeing the very low sales of the Nintendo Wii U we decided -for the good of our game- to expand the availability of Bayonetta 2 also on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. This decison has been taken from both Platinum Games and SEGA, alongside with Nintendo, that anyway will maintain all the future DLCs as an exclusive for the Wii U.”
