I know, they had them on the Nintendo UK store too but other than that it was exclusive to GAME, at least in the UK. Some other retailers around Europe might still have it if you're lucky.
>TFW its preordered but considering how rare it will be I'm tempted to keep it unopened and get the non leather version once I know exactly which versions have both physical games and which dont
>That amazing collector's edition.
>Exclusive to the continent of shit taste.
WHEN IS IT GONNA GO UP FOR ORDER ON GERMAN AMAZON, FUCK, I WANT IT NOW
Bayo1's nintendo costumes are available from the start, Bayo2's need to be bought. It's also the best version of the game.
AND NO REGRETS
Yeah fuck you, we are the ones that paid enought for kyle hyde to get the sequel.
We were the ones nintendo thought Selling Xenoblade, Pandora's tower and other games to us.
We have taste for the superior Super NES design and our Genesis was called the superior Mega Drive.
Americans are so delved into their own shit taste and smell so bad that they think things that smell like roses actually smell like shit.
>incredibly dedicated Bayonetta fan
>purchase Wii-U in excitement for Bayonetta
>see ppre-order/collector editions
Why do I always get punished for why my siblings do? It's like I'm living at home again... Hold me /v/
Demons rebell against Bayonetta and want to kill her, Jeanne takes the hit, now Bayo goes to Inferno to save the soul of her friend.
And then there seems to be this whole thing with a young Balder time traveling all around trying to get the eyes together again.
Am I supposed to feel bad for some tent-living savage who didn't even bother to register "his" property?
I am with you, my German friend.
They still don´t even have the final cover for the normal version, and the rating is still not put on there, too.
I hope there will be a Umbran Elegance for every weapon this time.
I wanna see the one for the Big Bull Jet Hammer.
That weapon itself looks so out of place on Bayonetta, methinks
>mfw you're either some obscure European reviewer or someone whose dad works for Nintendo and already has a full version on the game.
This game has around 180 songs, whereas the original only had 150 songs.
The collectors edition of the original only had a few songs on one cd and not a full soundtrack.
I think that it's probably just some guy working at amazon who is too lazy to update the page.
>This game has around 180 songs, whereas the original only had 150 songs.
>UK Amazon also a shit
They only have one edition listed that looks like the Solus, but the description still says it comes with Bayo 1. I hope they'll honour the pre-orders there and give us the double pack
>EU gets collectors editions constantly
>NA says something
>YOU WANKERS GET GAMES BEFORE US
>same release date
>LEL STAY JELLY BURGER
>comment on bullshit
>U CANT HANDLE THE BANTER M8
Fuck you cunts.
>It also includes The Art of Bayonetta 2 art book, all in special 3D embossed leather-effect packaging that faithfully recreates The Hierarchy of Laguna, the book of angels that documents the angelic foes Bayonetta meets on her adventures, making this a striking edition for devotees of the Umbra Witch.
NA often gets Japanese games that we don't or that we get (much) later, so I'm happy when Japan does show some love. Though I only wish everybody got every game and every edition at the same time.
I'd be pretty fucking surprised if Nintendo would fund another platinum game in the near future.
W101 did sell like shit, and I'd be surprised if Bayo 2'd sell well.
I mean, I bought W101 and pre order Bayo 2, but I'd understand Nintendo if they didn't want to fund any more games that don't sell.
And if they make a Bayo 3, then I want to see that on some new hardware.
I'm actually really interested in what Platinum will do with the Xbone in Scalebound.
So wait, we need a limited edition/special edition copy of the game for Bayo1 and it doesn't come with the standard edition anymore?
UK retailers aren't being very clear on this at all.
Yeah, I have pirated it as well. But I like having physical versions of things I like.
One day I want to buy this as well, but for now it's hard to justify putting 130€ on it.
>W101 did sell like shit, and I'd be surprised if Bayo 2'd sell well.
Because they didn't advertise it. I think the way they see it is that they're funding the games to show that "look, we have lots of games other than Mario and Zelda!", but they don't consider them system sellers nor do they expect them to sell all that much. It may be more of a "building the system's library" kind of thing.
>Because they didn't advertise it.
That game wouldn't sell shit no matter what.
It's niche as fuck and in my opinion, not good enough so that it couls still be really successful.
True enough. I guess they made the right decision after all. And it's actually a win-win for everyone; for them, because they're building the system's library, and for us, because we got a game that would probably not have been funded any other way.
I have the suspicion that he is Balder from the past, yeah. Because he looks a lot like him and also has the Right Eye. But maybe that is what they want us to believe and it is actually Bayos twin brother who went with Balder instead.
Can't they just put something on the case that says Bayo 1 is 18+? or something on a card with a code?
If gouging more money out of people is the only solution then something is very very wrong.
>Can't they just put something on the case that says Bayo 1 is 18+? or something on a card with a code?
They want kids who are 16 years old to still be able to buy Bayonetta 2.
And frankly, I don't mind playing a bit more to get Bayonetta 1 in a seperate case.
I wish I had some webms right now
Which makes no fucking difference, trying to get a 16+ rating doesn't really benefit them at all. (besides being able to use it as a cheap excuse to get people to buy another edition)
COD games are rated 18, that doesn't stop all the kiddies getting it.
>mfw it's only 720p and silky smoth 30 fps
>tfw it sold out within a day on GAME
shit I was right to get up specially early
EU here, should I get EU console and game or import everything from the US? I don't mind importing, would like to pay less and I'm afraid that EU Wii U is going to get fucked with region lock.
Just watch the trailer, they look very much alike.
Although they could have done that on purpose with all these Balder scenes.
Wasn´t the W101 trailer also full of "spoilers" which in the end turned out to be not spoilers at all?
So are the Tag Climax characters playable in regular gameplay?
Jeanne seems simple enough since she's nearly identical to Bayonetta minus the more demanding witch time and endless dodge offset.
Bayonettas family friendly what are you talking about?
>tfw almost preordered it yesterday but I was 3€ short and I charged the card today
only on PS3 dear sonigger, only on PS3
Silky smooth 60 FPS confirmed.
>physical game disc for bayo
I don't give a shit about the rest of this, tell me this is something coming to the states. I'll glady cancel my existing preorder and jump on that shit in a heartbeat.
Well the PS3 port was not meant to be made originally so sega fucked it up.
I could have sworn it was digital only?
Oh well, that's good. I don't like digital versions of physical games. And I don't give a shit about "limited editions" of games either.
It's still on Amazon UK at £31.85. I have seen so many responses like this, so I'm confident they will honour the preordersThey are pretty good at that at least. I remember when the Wii U launched and they honoured orders at the mispriced £200
I wish Nintendo would stop pushing their shit in all those games.
None of the Nintendo costumes look even remotely good.
The best looking one is the Star Fox one and that is saying something.
Also fuck special properties for costumes.
The whole story
>Bayonetta originally a 360 exclusive
>early in development SEGA said it needs to be multiplat
>Platinum at the time had no PS3 experience, so told SEGA they would need to deal with that
>SEGA get another studio called Hex to do the PS3 version
>either through incompetence, the fact it was designed specifically for 360 hardware or a bit of both the PS3 version comes out a mess
>PS3 version still sells retardedly well
>Platinum see the shamefur dispray and decide their next projects should be developed with a focus on the PS3
>Tales of the Abyss (PS2) - Never Released in Europe
>Throw Tales of Legendia there though nobody cares it's
not that great
>Chrono Trigger 1992 - Never released in europe. Neither did the PS1 port. or any ports in between until DS version in 2009.
>Final Fantasy 4 as 2, Final Fantasy 6 as 3, never released officially until PS1 versions around 2000-2001
>Catherine - Released a year late
>Persona 4 arena, OVER a year later from US/Japan
>WE ARE STILL WAITING FOR SMT IV (over a year later) - AND IT IS DIGITAL ONLY
>Code of princess was month late - and was Digital Only
>We will NEVER get last Rune Factory - and 3DS is region locked.
Also tell me fucking how CONSTANTLY this EU exclusive thing goes on? Last I checked every fucking collector's edition had american counterpart. VERY RARELY, say, 1/10 rarely does EU get a exclusive thing as opposed to game being 12+months late or NEVER coming out here AT ALL.
Fuck you seriously.
Congratulations, you're retarded. It's people like you who let the AAA companies push out endless garbage. There's no incentive for them to make good games when they get the money before anyone can actually find out if the game is good or not.
>waaaaaa im such a victim
>waaaaaa why do they get other little shit that isn't actually games and we don't
>waaaaaa fuck them for getting so many video games decades later or never
You're like those kids that want their parents dead because they didn't get the latest iPhone.
Sure if you're mentally deficient and preorder everything.
Preordering is for things you know you are gonna love and play a lot. Maybe things you know aren't gonna go down in price for a long ass time so why bother waiting. I mean, look I love wrestling. The WWE games are shit, but I buy them most years anyway. I don't preorder those. I get them a month after launch for half the price. Bayo 2? I'm getting that day one.
What's wrong, can't handle a strong frenchman?
You don't know that it's going to be good. You think it's going to be good because the previews have looked good and maybe because previous games in the series or by the same devs have been good.
But you don't know that it will be good. Sequels to good games are shit all the time. Games that look good in previews are shit all the time.
Why? Because the publishers know full well that all they have to do is make solid previews and they'll get their money without having to actually deliver a good game.
no europe does not just care, other DOA games are 16+
In some countries shit was binding even before PEGI came around. A lot of games got similar treatment for softest of sexual contents.
Why did america choose "A WORD (here is really small print what age group that word actually refers to) -system?
Also why the fuck do you have such a retarded leap as 12+ and then 17+ - Even Japan, with Europe and most countries with their very own rating standard, even Germany, have 11/12 - 15/16 - 18 - only america doesn't
I'm a platinumdrone, that's why I pre-ordered.
>have every plat game bar Infinite Space
>imported Anarchy Reigns
>have two copies of Bayonetta 1 (CE and standard and CE guidebook)
>have MGR steelbook
>bought a WiiU just for the Platinum titles
>preordered Book of Angel + the Guidebook
I pray it gets a fucking PC port
There is, I played it at a convention
Loki has a potty mouth on him
The reason it doesn't have an 18 is because these bitches aren't in Bayonetta 2
Eh, I intend on getting an Xbone and PS4 down the line anyway, so they could be making games on all systems and I wouldn't mind.
I still wish they made more PC ports though.
>Buy Hellsing Ultimate OVA's on DVD
>1st one 13+
>2nd one 15+
>3rd one 18+
>4th one 15+
I find that very unlikely, this is europe not america, both soft sexual content or swearing unless it is language in lines of "I will cut your fucking head, hands, pack them into box, rape them and fuck your dead eyesocket" would not get higher than 18+, it needs to be nearly explicit sexually and/or violently something to get 18+ here.
Which are All ages, 11+, 15+, 17+ 18+only respectively
If the rating system is always changing then the ratings they slap on the games are completely arbitrary. Games don't evaporate, they're still out there being sold with an rating from the old system.
>EWWW VIOLENCE, HOLY FUCK
>Sexuality is normal thogh.
>EWW SEXUALITY, COVER THE EYES OF EVEN THE 16 YEAR OLDS.
>Ahh violence, the daily past time
Of course but as with films they rate it once and that's how it forever. Watch some 15 rated films from years gone by. If they got a re-rating so many would get bumped down to today's 12 standard.
Meanwhile slavs have both and give 0 fucks. Based slavs.
There is "special" editions in stock on places that is just a box with both.
Europe gets a seperate covers, manual slips (probably not any manual slips that is) and discs for the games while america apparently gets Digital Download option as default for Bayo1.
no you idiot
the solus version only have bayo 2 but it is cheaper, no other region have that except on eshop
if you want to have both like the rest of the world then chose the other version which is the same price every other region pay
>preordering video games
I hope it's shit just so you'll have learned your lesson
>if you want to have both like the rest of the world then chose the other version which is the same price every other region pay
Our special edition is the same price as their normal edition?
>not pre-ordering limited editions that are in low supply
feels good that I did, look at all the people who missed their chance in the thread
>Want one-out-of-15k copies
>BUT DO NOT DARE TO PREORDER IF YOU WANT IT.
In exclusive fan treats like this, it should be justified given tomorrow nobody will be able to even preorder one.
Why did the other guy grab the hat though?
>being suckered in by "limited edition" tricks
I know that feel. I want to kill myself.
I got the limited edition from amazon for £31, not bad.
but how can you keep devoting yourself to video game if you are dead. check fucking m8, 8theist
That's the special edition, not limited. You get both games in separate cases but not the leather effect book case and attached pages of artwork. But then, that box and nineteen page artbook is double the price
>GAME only lets you buy one copy
>tfw can't scalp idiots who were too slow
I'm not spending 30 quid more for some tacky artbook, the limited edition has both games.
Ordered from Amazon a while back, their description said it came with Bayonetta 1 for the past few months, still does
Apparently a few people emailed them and have confirmed it does come with Bayo 1.
The only thing is the image of the game on the page is just the basic copy of Bayo 2 on its own.
I hope I do get both.
If this turns out like the CE of Bravely Default I am gonna be mad
>mfw I got my Wii U Deluxe on launch for £200 (300 was the RRP) because they listed it for that much for like five minutes when it was first announced. They also sent literally everyone a NintendoLand digital code because apparently a few of the systems that were meant to include it didn't.
Thank you based Amazon
So what weapons are you most excited to use that have been revealed so far and what will you probably use? Pick 2 sets since that's how Bayonetta works.
Kafka+Undine (Ice). A ranged weapon sounds fun and freezing even moreso.
Master Sword + Rakshasa: So the Link outfit is confirmed to let you use the Master Sword in Bayo 2 which I think emulates, or is similar to Shuraba. Hopefully you can maybe use the Master Sword even without equipping the costume.
Anyways, the confirmed weapons so far:
Love is Blue (Handguns) Hand+Foot
Mini Arwings (Starfox Guns) Hand+Foot
Arm Cannon (Metroid Gun) Hand?
Rakshasa (Dual swords) Hand+Foot
Master Sword (Zelda Shuraba) Hand
Alruna (Dual whips) Hand+Foot
Undine (Fire and Ice throwers) Hand+Foot
Kafka (Poison Bow) Hand
Chernabog (Rifle Scythe) Hand
Takemikazuchi (Lightning Hammer) Hand
Undine has more of a focus on range and elemental effects. Specifically while using Ice, it can freeze enemies. Not sure how the burning effect works.
Plus, the wicked weaves for Undine are really impressive looking with the hydra heads.
Reminder that Bayonetta 2 also has umbran elegances and are nicer looking than the first
>using the rakshasa umbran elegance, Bayonetta goes full on belly dancer when using wicked weaves
Bayo 3 would be cheaper and easier for Platinum/Nintendo to have it on the Wii U, meaning it could sell less than Bayo 2 if need be.
I'd be more surprised if they didn't make Bayo 3 now that they've said they're open to it. That kind of stuff needs to be worked long before development.
Set 1: Love is Blue
Set 2: Chernabog + Alruna
Fuck these Nintendo Weapons, they violate muh world and lore of Bayonetta
I wonder what the other weapons will be like, the one for Rakshasa is very good. Kafka not so good.
It isn't awful but could be better yeah.
Still, it's so much better than Bayonetta 1's.
an ugly mask and boots, an ugly hat, an ugly ballet tutu, an unnoticeable pair of cat ears and a tail.
Sai Fung's is the only nice one and even then it's kind of sloppy.
The outfits overall are so much better.
Umbran Gekka is a million times nicer than Umbran Komachi.
Nah, Komachi worked much too well with Shuraba and her hair, it looked very good.
Good thing you have money, I don't even have a Wii U yet, but I hope you enjoy. Normally I wouldn't recommend pre-orders, but it's Platinum, so you know it's going to be a 10/10.
Have fun in an industry where your specific wants are never considered.
If you pirate games and never buy the ones you like, you don't get to bitch and complain when devs stop making the games you like.
>mfw i just preordered
hope this fucking enlightens nintendo to give us fatal frame
They need all the games they can put on the Wii U. Even the fucking 3DS one was localized. Is there a specific reason they wouldn't give us the new Fatal Frame? Should I be worried?
>tfw pre-ordered first thing when I woke up yesterday
you can only blame yourselves if you missed out
If you were initiated in the arcane arts of importing as a Euro, you had it made, assuming you could afford the games that is. We got RGB SCART as early as the SNES (NES can be modded), when I went to North America for a few years and TVs only had composite in the mid to late 90s I wanted to vom.
This was something I always asked myself since they talked about co-op, how Witch Time will work.
Seems like if one player triggers it, the other one gets it, too.
Which is fine from a gameplay perspective, but really hurts my lore autism.
Glad that co-op is only in a non-canon side-mode.
>extreme fear that my First Print Edition is going to get lost in the post upon release and I'll have to get a standard version
EU gets fucked over just as much, if not more, than NA.
For one thing, every game and console is noticeably more expensive over here, and that's not even bringing in exclusive deals that NA gets
I still don't know what that thing in the top middle of the screen is for.
Or what the infinity symbol is for. It can't be lock-on because each character has their own Lipstick Lockon. P1 is Red and P2 is Blue.
There are a total of 15300 or so, but no way that GAME got all those copies and they were all sold out.
I think amazon France still has some?
And they are not even up for order in any other country.
The first game was full of ridiculous costumes, this was the next obvious step and you will find no bayonetta fan complaining.
The Wii was selling like water in the desert back then though, they didn't need to give a fuck. They can't afford to not give a fuck now.
>Letting anyone touch their games
Fatal Frame as an IP is now co-owned by Nintendo, they don't need anyone's authorization to localize that.
>and you will find no bayonetta fan complaining
That´s wrong because I am a Bayonetta fan and I am complaining about them.
Also the costumes are not ridiculous, they are just plain ugly, unfitting and only there to cater to the nintenkiddie crowd.
>you don't know if the game is good or bad
why do you people say this shit over and over? we have seen a bazillion videos, we have seen 3 almost complete levels, we have PLAYED the damn thing on conventions, the same team from the previous bayonetta is behind it with more freedom, more money and more time..........jesus fucking christ it's not rocket science
>Once again America gets nothing at all
>No chest with triforce alarm clock
>No Link scarf
>No ugly/not ugly Kyogre or Groudon
It's like NoA doesn't want me to preorder their games ever.
are the NoE sites fucked up for anyone else right now?
>see it go up on Game.co.uk a few hours after stream
>Decide to pre-order it in case scandinavian retailers don't stock up on it

Man, I'm happy I nabbed a copy quickly.
And I honestly doubt anyone here will stock up on it. None of the retailers I've called here know shit about it.

Looks at this faggot. Single-player or get the fuck out. Don't let your friends shitty opinion stop you from getting the
only decentconsole of this generation. PS4 doesn't have any games worth playing anyway.
Bayonetta was one of those few modern games that actually got 'normal' difficulty right. Hard enough that it's not boring and that you'll die occasionally, but not easy enough that it's a cakewalk.
No, no, not at all, it was about the CE.
I don't think I've ever seen this much hype over a CE on /v/ before, which I find so weird considering the CE is nothing special compared to so many other great ones.
Well, Hard did something by having remixed enemies and having that from the start would 'spoil' them.
I'd rather have a normal hard and then Very Hard and Nonstop Climax with the remixed enemies.
I think a part of it is the fact EU is getting it and not NA. There's like an unspoken agreement in affect that they have to rub it in or something.
I couldn't care less if you paid me to.
Amazon.co.uk now saying Bayonetta 1 is NOT included.
Shh, everything's going to be okay. Just relax.
>Get hype for bayo 2
>replay Bayo 1
>remember how mediocre it is
>remember how 90% of the game's enjoyment is bayonetta rubbing her cuntflaps on the camera

But don't we already know what Madama Styx looks like?
That demon lady looks kind of different.
I can't believe how BTFO all those tards in the post-Direct thread are at this very moment.
>15,300 copies of CE
>implying that many people in Europe own Wii Us
>implying it'll sell more than 4 copies.
SOLD OUT! NO MORE LEFT!
How fucking mad are these assholes right now, I wonder?
>(Even though it wasn't really enforced at all or had the legal implications until much later
What ? it still doesn't, well, not in
Franceanyway. PEGI is only made to inform parents about the content of the game, a 18+ game can still be bought by a 9 year old at any store if he wants it.
I just hope the Masked Lumen isn't actually a bad guy and is just misguided or is doing what he's doing for a reason.
if only to justify me being able to play him later. We've seen that the Lumens have lots of equivalent skills.
They can use wicked weaves using feathers (except what would this be called?), Light Speed, and Beast Within.
His Panther Within equivalent is a wolf.
>don't even own a Wii U
Goddammit Nintendo, make better bundles.
>His Panther Within equivalent is a wolf.
Wait really? Where was this shown?
And I also do hope that his reasons are at least understandable. IF he really is Balder from the past, and we get to play at the times around or before the Witch Hunts, we could see him stopping the first attempt of resurrecting Jubileus.
Because Sapientia said something along the lines of "If it wasn´t for this mans actions, the resurrection 500 years ago would have been a success."
Holy shit, I haven't seen legendary shit taste like yours for quite a while. If you don't think Bayonetta is fun as fuck and enjoyed it just because of sex appeal the first time around then fucking kill yourself and rid this board of your presence forever.
He was shown transforming in one of the trailers or something
>Holy shit, I haven't seen legendary shit taste like yours for quite a while.
Or maybe he is talking to this really weird dude encased in ice, if that is the one with the kinda faggy voice at the very end of the trailer and not just the Masked Lumen himself.
>comparing two different things
>implying MGR wasn't
>>comparing two different things
These things are so fucking similiar that you can compare them without a problem.
The only thing you could say MGR was better than Bayonetta in were that most of the boosfights in MGR were 1 on 1 duels, compared to the bossfights in Bayo 1, which were mostly against huge angels.
I had the regular version preordered on Amazon since they had it for like £32. Then I saw the first print edition and ended up cancelling my intial preorder and going for that for a whopping £50. Waste of money really, but I'm a sucker for this shit.
