Bayonetta 2 Rated in Australia, Release Date Announcement Coming?

By   /   May 27, 2014

Australian Classification Board has rated Bayonetta 2 as Mature for strong fantasy violence.

The game was first announced exclusively for Wii U by Platinum Games in the September of 2012 and then they went relatively quiet on the project, just revealing few tidbits of the game here and there.

However, this latest listing suggests that the game is very much ready and hopefully we will see the new gameplay demo alongside the release date at upcoming E3 event.

Before you get excited by the multi-platform part, for some odd reason Australian Classification Board lists Halo 4 as a multi-Platform title as well so it has probably something to do with their definition of multi platform or website bug.

Bayonetta 2 will serve as a direct sequel to 2009’s critics darling Bayonetta released for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.

In this game, the protagonist Bayonetta will partner up with her former rival Jeanne and take on the multiple angles, which is part of their pact to inferno.

The gameplay in the sequel will be a lot like its predecessor, where you will be using a combination of moves and dodging the enemy attacks to survive in the game.

Moreover, the game features elements of gunplay that can be used to damage opponents that are standing at a long range or cannot be reached with melee attacks.

The original Bayonetta did incredibly well and we will see very soon if the sequel lives up to the hype.
