Bayonetta 2 designers offer a glimpse into the development of a world of leather and monsters

A new trailer for the upcoming Bayonetta 2 was shown during today's Nintendo Direct, offering a look at the development process behind the sequel and the creation of character and environment models.

The Wii U exclusive was first announced last year.
