bayonetta 2

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.”
