'Bayonetta 2' developers don't want to 'alienate' fanbase

Bayonetta 2 developers do not want to alienate fanbase.

Bayonetta 2 developers, Platinum Games, do not want to "alienate" the fanbase from "participating in the future" of the studio, according to studio head Tatsuya Minami in a post on the official studio website.

"Bayonetta has fans the world over, and we would never dream of alienating them from participating in the future of Platinum Games," wrote Minami. The sequel was revealed yesterday as a Wii U exclusive during Nintendo's Wii U presentation.

"That being said, the console games market is in a state of upheaval, so establishing a new game franchise requires a considerable amount of will, determination, and love. Bayonetta is a brand that we want to see become stronger, reaching the hands of more and more gamers, so we have continued to consult with Sega, the previous game's publisher, on how we can make sure this takes place. Our answer was a new partnership with Nintendo."

Minami states Nintendo's combination of new hardware and track record for supporting games makes the company an ideal candidate.

"Alongside Nintendo, we hope to grow the Bayonetta brand beyond where it stands today, allowing even more gamers around the world to experience the action of our beloved witch. As developers, we are working hard to make this a reality."

Bayonetta 2 has no official release date as of yet.
