You’ve still got a little while to wait before Bayonetta 2 lands on Wii U, but if you’re itching to get into a pair of pistol-shoes, Nintendo‘s got a deal for you. A playable demo for the game is available right now, and it should be just enough to give you a taste of what’s in store.
…and in case you thought you’d be gently eased into this witchy sequel, think again. The demo drops you right in the middle of the action, atop a fighter jet flying over the city. Why not? It’s the perfect space to let you pummel hordes of angelic enemies with the new Umbran Climax move, or – if you’d prefer – you can dodge and avoid them, engage in Witch Time, and let ’em have it that way.
Remember, if you pick up the Special Edition, you’ll also get a copy of the original Bayonetta, to bring you up to speed with exactly what’s going on. Of course, that deal’s only available in-store, but if you’d prefer a digital purchase, you can get each game via the Nintendo eShop – and if you snag both at once, you’ll get a special discount that makes the price exactly the same as the Special Edition retail pack.
Looks like the team at Nintendo‘s lookin’ out for you, witch fans!
