As the world prepares to get quietly hyped for Bayonetta 2, Sega has taken the time to remind you of just how great the original game was. In case you’ve never checked out the free-flowing, over-the-top wonder that is Bayonetta, get yourself to the PlayStation Network shortly, and get that downloadin’ finger ready.
Bayonetta is a bit of an unusual title, from the creators of Devil May Cry and Resident Evil. Directed by Hideki Kamiya, it’s more stylish than your average action game, but more action-packed than anything this pretty has a right to be. The title character – your character – is a witch, with powers beyond the comprehension of mere mortals. It’s her destiny to battle it out with evil forces, countless enemies and giant-sized bosses.
Starting January 29th in the U.S., Bayonetta will be available via PlayStation Network for a very reasonable US$19.99 or local equivalent. If you’re more of the Xbox persuasion, get onto Xbox LIVE Arcade right now – she’s been lurking there for a while, just waiting for your download.
